  1. Does fuse 37 serve the entire Monsoon system?

    Mobile Electronics
    02 Passat GLX 4mo Wagon- I'm wondering if fuse 37 (I believe that's the one for the 'radio') of 20amps serves the entire Monsoon audio system, meaning the head unit, the amplifier, and the cd changer. And if so, does anyone happen to know how many amps each of these components draws/ how close...

  3. To serve and protect

    The Black Hole
    This is the perfect example of one of the main reasons why I support concealed carry laws. The police cannot be trusted to, or depended on, to competently defend and protect myself or my family. It took them forty-five minutes to enter the damn building and an hour to start to remove the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Some of you may have heard that I was having trouble with a lousy mechanic and a shock install with bumpstops yadda yadda yadda... So anyway the white plastic cap on the shaft end of the shock body broke off and I'd like to know what purpose it serves and if it can just be replaced?

    During my morning commute on Wednesday, I had the chance to witness Connecticut's state troopers in action. On I-95 North in Waterford, there is a truck weigh station about 1/2 mile from a hill. At the top of the hill is a very poorly placed, short, uphill onramp. The result of this...
  6. Bangled Z4, serve them right!

    Anything Auto
    NEW YORK -- Summer's here, and the time is right for buying little two-seat convertibles. Except for one problem: The bottom has dropped out of America's small roadster market. And the newest open-top twin-seater - BMW's Z4 - may have a much deeper problem than other cars in the segment...
  7. Will self serve car washes scratch your car?

    Anything Auto
    You know the ones were you put in your tokens. My car is filthy, and I don't have time to wash my car at home this week. I was going to clean it at lunch. Does the brushes from these car washes scratch the paint? I brought my own rags, but I have to get the soap on the car some way...
