  1. 2005 B5 2.8 Snub Nose

    B5 Garage
    Hey Guys, I'm finishing a timing belt and everything else "while I'm there" project and I've got a snub nose mount question. Obviously, the OEM mount was old and destroyed, so I bought the rubber version and it doesn't touch the sides in the opening on the front clip. Probably an 1/8" clear...
  2. Can't get snub mount bracket bolts to thread

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is driving me crazy. I've spent the last 3 hours cursing/trying to unsuccessfully thread on the three snub mount bracket bolts to the radiator carrier. Are they captive nuts in the carrier because it seems like whatever the bolts thread to inside have come loose? I may have managed to...
  3. 034 Motorsports snub mount install...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Picked up one for my 2002 Passat (AWM) because, well, the old one was crumbling apart and I've installed one on my B6 A4. Obviously, they're different, and this one is being difficult. Any one who has installed it have any tips to push it on? I'm considering using a hair dryer or heat gun to...
  4. Snub mount position

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    In the process of replacing my Snub and read somewhere here that another person positions it slightly high and center. To reduce the engine movement even more upon acceleration. Is this acceptable or am I best to simply center it like others have done? Thank you
  5. Made a custom snub mount

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm entirely sick of the slop in my B5, that clunk drives me nuts. I dislike the stock bracket extra space, and wasn't entirely sure I wanted to use the 034 bracket and mount as it looks much smaller than the other available mounts. So I modified a stock bracket to fit a bigger mount! Need to...
  6. Snub mount Question...again

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello All: So I have a weird clunk when shifting through lower gears on my 2000 B5 ATQ manual transm. I thought it might be a mount but I replaced them about a year and half ago or maybe two years ago. Anyway, I've checked the side mounts and they look fine. I have a hard time seeing the snub...
  7. B5.5 Snub Mount and Snub Mount Bracket Question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Can someone explain why the actual snub mount is of a different shape than the actual opening of the snub mount bracket? I also wonder about the logic of having the snub mount bracket having provision for a degree of adjustment. I have never seen a motor mount like this. Why would this mount...
  8. Snub mount too low after taking lock carrier off

    B5 Garage
    Hello, A few months ago I pulled the lock carrier forward to replace the timing belt and clutch. All went well except for when I put the lock carrier back. The front of the engine was notably lower. I was able to force the carrier over the snub mount but the front end and hood are lower. The...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is this stub mount correct? Should there be something else in the square hole or was it designed to allow some movement?

  13. B5 2.8 snub mount replacement question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Did a search on the site and unable to find an answer. Reinstalling bracket aft of radiator and I cannot start the bolts? I did see someone having the same issue and was told the nut floats. But I cannot fish them into position, in fact I don't see them. The bolts were on the tight side...
  14. Snub Question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings all, I recently removed the front for service on my 03 V6 and I have a question on the snub plate. Does the snub sit on the bottom of the plate somewhat supporting the engine or does it sit center making contact only at the front of the snub? When I removed the front, I had difficultly...
