    Hi, I am trying to save a 2001 Passat with the V6 motor. It has 475,000 km on it and really want to see it get to half a million kilometers. The crankshaft seal is broken so its literally throwing out oil. I have the front end off the car and see that the crankshaft bolt looks like it needs a...

    Hey Guys, Just getting back to my fun with the cat removals on the 2.8 with CA/NY pre-cat emissions. So I noticed gear oil leaking from the center diff. seal and figured it was best to change out while level on stands before I lower the subframe and engine tilt for cat pipe removals. The...

    I have some very useful Crankshaft Seal tools for the 1.8T motor. It will be a while (I hope!) before I need to use them again, so if somebody would like to borrow let me know. My location is New England USA (Boston - Vermont - New Hampshire, generally). Pickup is better, but shipping is...

    Hello. The rear main crankshaft seal was replaced past Friday on 2010 Passat with DSG transmission. I haven't had a chance to drive the car until today (wife's car) and noticed a few things. 1. When car is in park and I push the gas pedal (quickly for a fraction of a second), the rpms go up to...

    So I have an oil leak that I'm finally getting to this weekend. It slowly has leaked all the oil over the course of a week, but only leaks when it's not running. When running, there is no leak. I hit a speed hump pretty hard just before this happened and due to needing new shocks/struts, it...

    The old 2004 is now past 164,000km and now the O-ring seal on the breather tube above the oil filter housing is leaking. Not really a bad leak, but you know.:nervous: I know the tube will fracture when I try to remove it, no biggie, but I read that getting the new one in with the new O-ring is...

    Hello, 98' Passat 1.8t automatic Doing timing belt replacement. Realized the lower TB cover is covered with tar-like oily substance. Should I assume it is the crank seal leak? If so, should I replace the crank pinchbolt with new one? Thanks.

    Behind the torque converter oil seal there is a type of thrust washer the shop manual refers to as a bearing ring. There are two flat edges and other parts are contoured round to fit the circular opening. There is an oil passage hole on the right hand side where the seal and Bearing install...

    I don't even know what they're called to properly search for it. I get a ton of stuff about headliner, and door panels, but nothing about this rubber piece with fabring sagging all around my headliner. Why did this happen? Heat? Cold? Warped? What is it called, how to fix it? Samsung...

    My 2005 B5 GLS wagon was what I thought to be a fender bender (search: BASH 2000 B5 Kombi). Replaced the radiator support, radiator, fan, fan clutch, headlamp and hood. After about 30 miles the car is now leaking a significant amount of oil...a small pool in my driveway everynight...

    I have not yet seen a B5 or B5.5 that hasn't had a gap between the door seals and pillars. Has anyone determined if it is the seals or the pillars deforming? The car is in for pillar and headliner re-covering and I'm curious if I can close the gap at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

The issue I'm running into is removal of the the drive axle flange in...
