    Here is an AEB -1.8T timing belt tensioner, which has about 70,000 miles/6.5 years on it. It looks OK, except that it is locked up. This is from the car that AndreasPassat helped us with on Thanksgiving weekend. The roller will turn a few degrees either way, then won't move. There are also...

    The door rollers in the rear left door in my B6 don't roll against the hinge anymore. They're frozen stuck. Does anyone know of a good oil or grease to loosen them up that has worked?

    Below are some diagrams that show the proper way to count the chain link rollers. This definitely applies to the 2.8L V6 30V engine, and it may apply to other engines as well: With the engine in TDC position, the marks on both cam sprockets must align with the marks on the end caps that hold...

    My 2000 V6 B5 (75,000 miles) is at the dealer as I type this. I brought it in to get some oil leaks fixed under the 100K warrant. I suspected the leaks were from the cam tensioner seals, so I asked about getting a break on labor on a timing belt change. They said they would work with me on it...

    Got mine chipped yesterday and had on rolling road today. Damn thing only pulled 255bhp and 231lb/ft torque What has anyone else achieved. I think the RR is showing low power, as my civic only managed 197bhp and shes had a bit of work. Plus a Dodge ram and a monaro were both over 50bhp down...

    So I had a nail in my tire, so i took it to Les Schwab so they could fix it.... Well apparently I had a nail in two tires and neither were repairable, let alone the fact that the tires were near death (having been on the car for 5 YEARS!!!!) So I didn't want to buy tires for the steel wheels...
