    I called the dealership for the socket size. He informed me it was a polydrive but couldnt recall if it was an M12 or M14. Haveing a hard time finding sets of polydrives too. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    I will be replacing my rear brake calipers this weekend. My replacements came with mounting brackets. I have been working from an Audi B5 manual I found online because I do not have the Bentley. Also I found this neat DIY: Rear brake job, caliper removal, rotor replacement, and rear wheel...

    When changing my headlight bulb, I broke one of the clips (1 of 2) on the plastic socket that holds the low beam headlight on my 2010 B6 Passat. The clips hold the electrical connector in place. The socket part is Valeo PET-GF35. Having difficulty finding a source. Please help.

    How Do I Install the ECS Tuning H7 Bulb Socket Kit? My ECS Tuning H7 Bulb Socket Kit arrived, but it came with no directions. At first, I couldn't determine how to release the connector on the original bulb socket, but I figured that out. (Pushing down and out on the end of the connector from...

    Need a little advice folks. And if I missed a similar thread, please let me know and I will cancel this one. Last year I was in a nice little collision with a deer in which my nice new(ish) 2014 Passat took it on the chin, literally. Had to have the front bumper, driver-side headlamp...

    I was hoping somebody here can help me find a replacement for this socket. I've been trying to find one for a while and have had no luck so far. Looks like the previous owners tried to fix it but I think it's beyond repair at this point. Here's a couple pictures...

    Hi, I recently replaced a rotted roof antenna on my B5 Passat. My only problem is that the cable that comes through the roof is too short and does not reach the cable that it is to connect to. That and I glued a sharkfin over it and cannot get it out. :( So I am asking to know what kind of...

    I have an '04 AWM, and it uses the M16 Hub-to-axle bolt, the shop manual for which calls for 140 ft-lb + 180 degrees. After a warranty boot swap by Raxles, I went to put the axle back on the car during my lunch break today. (Pro tip: Get a 3/8" triple-square for the flange bolts; it's a lot...

    There have been many threads about the plastic socket (for low beam H7 bulbs) deteriorating or melting. It appears that VW does not sell a replacement socket, and the "universal" H7 sockets from autoparts stores do not match up with the metal ring clip that holds the bulb and socket in place...

    One of the license plate light sockets on my 2002 Passat Wagon is burnt up and I need to find a new one. Not the light, but the socket fixture. Anywhere on the web sell this? I've looked for 15 minutes and cannot find it. Thanks!

    Does the 12-volt DC socket work while ignition is off? I'm thinking about buying a solar powered battery charger for my 2003 Passat W8.

    My drivers side headlight socket burnt out about 4 weeks ago and now my passengers side socket burnt out last night it seems on my Daytime Running Light. Is there a reason both did this around the same time? All my other bulbs work. I dont want to buy the whole harness and have to take the...
