    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 went to have my front axle shaft assemblies replaced. Dude was having a hell of a time removing the axles. After a few hours, he shows me a broken axle shaft - the rest of it is still in the engine (gear box??) Passenger side shaft - whatever connects to the gear box - is still stuck inside...

    Hi all, Is there any maintenance required on the drive shaft? U-joints, vibration pads or anything? I am not finding anything on the inter-web and I don't see anything in the Bentley manual. I rebuilt the front end (shocks, axles, ball joints, bushings, steering rods/ends) and I am working...

    Can the u joint on the propeller shaft be changed. I find it hard to believe that it can not be changed. Some one has to have done it before. If anyone has any part # for the u joint that would be greatly appreciated. Hope you all can help. Dont want to spend a grand on new shaft. Thanks in advance

    Received my new half-shaft/axle today via parcel. It came with plastic wrappings on each end. I noticed that the inner CV side had a bunch of grease in it. I took it off and found that the metal backing plate was just about off and a lot of grease had gotten out. Is this plate supposed to be...

    I need a drive (prop) shaft from a W8 Manual Passat. Wagon or Sedan. No v6/1.8t driveshafts. I can give instruction on how to break down the shaft for shipping. Center support bearing condition not an issue.

    I'm in the middle of doing a bunch of work on my car and am at the point where I can do the transmission output flange seals with all the suspension stuff out of the way. I got the passenger side flange pulled an the seal ready to go. I know the little spring clip that retains the flange is...

    Cost of Gearbox Selector Shaft Seal Replacement - B5 V6 manual shift What might I expect to be charged in shop time for this work? My indy agrees the work can be done with the car on the lift (no gearbox removal required), but I don't feel confident that they're confident as their shop time...

    Ok. I bought a 2004 passat w8 and it has a ticking sound. Of course i didnt pay much for it due to the ticking noise. Anyway, i decided to do some research and found that the belt to the balancing shafts, cod be the problem. Gained access to the belt and of course, its broken. My question is...

    Manual transmission. I'm trying the bolt method where you use the axle bolt to tighten down until the CV joint pops off the axle shaft. The right driver side worked great. I have the joint out of the hub. How do I keep the axle from turning? Obviously having someone step on the brakes doesn't...

    Long story short my balance shaft belt broke and I just received the parts today but I won't be able to fix it until this weekend...with that said I just cracked the oil pan on a chunk of ice on my daily driver so I was wondering if it will hurt anything if I drive my W8 to work which is a 80...

    I searched high and low on this forum for some tricks on how to get the cv joint off the shaft. I have limited tools and can only do so much. I used a heavy rubber mallet and tried hammering the joint on the side and as well as parallel to the shaft. I tried to use a wobbler extension that would...

    I removed my axle, flange shaft, and speedo housing to investigate a small transmission fluid leak under the drivers side of my Passat. The notch on the flange shaft that holds the metal ring seems to have been chipped but I am not sure if this is normal or not... I can jiggle the metal ring...

    Well, I found the cause of the car not going into gear with the engine on - bad pilot bearing. The next question is how does one remove it and put a new one in? I know I need a bearing puller + Slide hammer. Is it required to take the flywheel off to do so/ is there any snap rings holding it in...
