    I have a 2005 tdi wagon. Like many people, my door handle stopped opening from the outside. I read online that the mechanism gets caught and by slamming the door and/or fiddling with the child safety lock, you can get the piece to pop back into place without taking the door apart. I tried this...

    I had the automatic transmission switching issue which gave me the check engine code P0706 and required the transmission range switch replacement (I was able to repair the switch I had, without spending $200 for a new one). After 3 days of driving with the switch repaired and Tiptronics...

    I have a 2001.5 Passat (B5.5) with over 190k miles. Over the last 3 years or so (maybe more), there has been some play in my steering wheel. Right at the midpoint, there will be some play. When I turn the wheel to 9 o'clock or 3 o'clock, the wheel will "catch" and there will be a clicking or...

    2003 GLS, V6, 5-Speed Manual - I replaced the bump stop (snub mount) this weekend. As I put the vehicle in the service position for the first time, I noticed four bracket safety bolts on the passenger side but only three on the driver side. I've spent the last three days mentally ranting and...

    Hi, I was told the trubo goes into safety mode when the CEL is on. I just wondering if this was true? I did some research and it didn't say anything regarding turbo safety. Thanks

    Can someone please post the part number for the seat belt stop buttons on the middle rear seatbelt on a B5.5 Sedan. My belts are black so I need the black button. However, I don't need the number for the larger button that is below the buckle that stops it from dropping in the seat. I need the...

    Do you hear squeal or screech when braking? Do you feel it takes your vehicle longer to stop? Well, it's high time to check your brakes then. And if there is any noticeable damage, like cracks, grooves, heat spots or rust, don't waste time and replace the worn-out brake components as soon as...

    Had an issue a couple of weeks ago with the OEM VW 3C8601025E Daytona alloy splitting clean in two at almost 50mph. The car has been into VW but they got a dealer to take a quick look and have washed their hands of it. Not sure if any of you have seen anything like this before?

    I plan to buy the Meyle HD suspension kit for my 1999 Passat V6. A number of places sell this kit including FCP Groton, ECT Tuning, and AutohausAZ. However, AutohausAZ is *the only one* that says I also need part # 8D0411357 control arm clamps (see below from their web site). I've called...

    The whole PA safety and emission inspection is a scam. It is probably wrote into law by lobbyist working for car repair industry. How good for an emission inspection to just read the OBDII for code? The worst part is the safety inspection. Their favorite lies are about tires and brakes. Easy...

    The switch(located on the driver side front door) that disables the inside rear door latches, need to be replaced. The spring action seems to be broke; the switch does not stay depressed. A few questions I had- 1. What is this switch called? 2. Does the panel containing the power window...
