    Hey guys. New to VW and the board. Dumb question, but is the DSG the same unit on all VW's of similar years? Golf, CC, Passat, 4 cyl, V6, etc?

    If anyone here has successfully removed the 8mm hex/Allen bolt that holds the turbo coolant hose to the 1.8T block, please post some how-to hints. Can this reasonably be done w/o pulling the turbo, or is biting the bullet and doing that the best approach? Other thoughts? Specialty tool, perhaps...

    A couple months ago I got to work after a 20 minute drive on the freeway and noticed FL wheel was smoking and the rim was all black with brake dust, with 165K on my 04 4Mo wagon I figured it was time to replace/rebuild calipers. Got rebuilt calipers and replaced both sides and everything seemed...

    Im wondering if any of the pullies are the same from the 1.8T to the V6, possibly the tensioners or altnernator pulley? I see Gruvenparts has a set of lightweight ones for the 1.8T and just wondering if I could buy some of them seperately and put them on my V6 to help it rev alittle easier and...

    Okay I am looking for feedback from anyone who has or has experienced with KW Coil-overs in a FWD 99 1.8T or similar and in particular, either a: KW Variant 3 Inox line; or Street Comfort coil-over. I lowered my 99 1.8T Passat about a year ago with Eibach springs and Koni FSDs shocks. I...

    We all know what a shot strut mount sounds like, and I have a noise that sounds similar (front drivers side) but dosent make the sound every time. Also, when I turn my steering wheel back and fourth I can hear a bit of clicking if I move the wheel back and fourth fast enough and there is more...

    I don't have any (more, recent, real) plans to jump ship anytime soon and leave my 2003 1.8T @ 105k mi. behind, but a remark by someone else on here in the last few days to this got me thinking. Is the CC the car you jump to next whenever the B5.5 has to go? It's pretty much the same size, has...

    How are they. Good features? Compared to a Pioneer AVIC-D3? Install wise how was the fit? I know more people probably have the 5100 or the 7000. Just seeing everyones opinion. I have yet to see a pic of one installed on a b5 or b5.5. I have a b5.5

    As you can imagine, the curb did me in this time:banghead:. I'm sure I can find someone to do the touch up work but I just need to know where I can get (if possible) the right paint, or at least something close enough to match. This rim Thanks in advance

    This car is driving me crazy! :banghead: A 1999 Passat, 1.8 engine code ADR (20v). Just had the rear bushes, discs and last year front arms (for MOT) done! Now I find it's leaking oil! (but don't know when it started!) :cry: But the strange thing is, I have never topped my oil up and services...
