    Hi All i have two questions regarding TDC and timing on a BKP engine; 1. How do you make sure that the crankshaft is at TDC for cylinder#1 if the crank has been moved? (i think i'm correct in saying it could be 360° out?) 2. When you put the timing belt back on and make sure that the inlet...

    My SAIP is dead, even after installing a new one last year. Since I'm overdue on my inspection, I cannot pass. I can clear the code, but I do not know how to set the readiness codes. Is there a way to reset readiness without replacing the SAIP?

    Car: 1999 GLX Problem: Temperature gauge does not go up, no heat except at “HI” setting. Over the winter, I have noticed that the temperature gauge does not reach fully warm (putting to 12 clock position) even when I get to work, which is about 6 miles one-way. It used to before. However...

    According to this, the toe setting is in inches (presumably between front edge and rear edge of the tires) http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairguides/Volkswagen-Cars-2000-05/Wheel-Alignment/Wheel-Alignment-Specifications/_/P-0900c152801bdb0b But I have seen people claiming that the 0.16...

    I can't find these values anywhere. I'm using the diy for waterpump replacement but it does not list torque values for these bolts. Three of them go into the water pump assembly. I don't want to mess these up. Thanks!

    I'm swapping out a set of Koni yellow adjustable shocks on a 2001 B5. I found how to do the adjustment and it needs to be done before the shocks go on the car. What settings are good for regular street driving (not racing)? This car also has a set of sport/lowering springs that drop it 1 or 2...

    Ok guys, My 1st time using Koni Sport shocks. I got the hydraulic (no gas) sport versions. I'm looking for something a bit stiffer than stock. H&R OE Sport Springs getting installed also. What is a good setting on the turns to start with? I'd like to get this as close as possible seeing as...

    I posted about ordering this in the "What did you do to your Passat today?" thread, but since it will need an install and follow-up, I am going to start the tease here. It seems like some UK MkIV owners have already started writing the book on how to configure it to your preference, beyond...

    Hello All, I was driving on a warm day and had all 4 windows & sunroof open. Well when i wanted to close the windows & sunroof everything was able to close BUT the front passenger's side window. I read somewhere to powercycle the car for a similar issue (unplug the battery for 5 seconds then...

    In the info base, there's a great write-up on setting readiness codes. (See link below) . But there's one part I don't understand. It says that one of the prerequisites before doing the drive cycle is that the engine coolant temperature must be between 80degC and 110degC. Since this is...

    Recently got a 2000 APU Passat and having wiper issues. The Wiper gets Stuck / Frozen at the highest speed. It will wipe at normal speed and intermittent speed like normal, as long as you switch to the highest speed it freezes immediately ... :crazy: Have done a search and came up with these...

    Anyone have any insight on how deep or shallow to set the ABS sensor after you've removed it? I pulled the driver side out while replacing my control arms (before I realized I could just unplug it and leave it in the spindle which I did on the passenger side) and I guess I pushed it back in too...

    I have a question for you. I have a 2001 2.8L 4motion passat wagon, I believe it's a B5.5. I just replaced both heads and finally got it running yesterday. It is running rough at idle, around 500 rpm. I have not driven it yet so I have not gotten the engine code read. It is a flashing light...

    I've purchase a set of Koni yellow adjustable shocks for the rear of my B5 wagon, one of the bilstiens has blown. These shocks are adjustable but not on the car, they have to be fully collapsed and the rod turned relative to the body. I didn't realize this before purchase and am a little...
