    Moderators, If this is the wrong place for this can it be moved to the proper location? For those that are interested, I have started the process of prototyping various machined parts. First one the list is a part for safety. It is a self contained instantaneous clamp release for a fire...

    Greetings everyone! Wondering where you all order parts when you need them? I used to go thru FCP Euro, but *man* are they getting expensive. Example, I need two front axle assemblies, and FCP wants $344/each! Front Left Front Right Sometimes I can find pretty decent parts on Amazon as...

    Greetings. Hopefully this should be a quick and easy one for all of you with miles traveled under the hood of the 2.0t Passat. Without further ado, there is a plastic duct, about four to six inches long, formed in an elbow shape, that connects to the MAF sensor on one side and a rubber intake...

    Thought I would just drop this here. I have had the misfire for some time. It's a pain and hard to fix. Here is what I have found to solve my issue. The 1.8l has a heat shield of a type over the engine. It is plastic and mainly for looks. But it does work as a heat shield and keeps the heat IN...

    Getting prepared to pull the trigger on a 2004 Passat 1.8T (AWM) this weekend (glutton for punishment?). It has a manual transmission, so that will simplify things. I've searched, so I'm aware of the combi-valve and SAI system, the needlessly over-complicated PCV system, and the tendency of...

    Newly acquired 2007 Passat 2.0T had a trunk leak on passenger side, which I fixed (drain tube had become disconnected). However, when I removed the trunk liner on that side, I found a the compass and bracket dangling from the wire that it connects to. For the life of me, I can not find how the...

    VW highly suggests only using VW BlueDEF for the TDI. Has anyone else used any other brand of DEF with success? Just traded an 07 Passat for the 14 Passat TDI, runs great! and want to keep it that way.

    I've been searching the forum for hours so please forgive me if this stuff has already been answered, def a wealth of knowledge here, kinda too much... but not a whole lot on the (seemingly rare?)

    My 2004 1.8t GL has been having a coolant leak for the past couple weeks(was about to fix the problem as soon as i had the time too :/ ) and this last weekend my engine overheated and died. Although I am currently learning the trade and do not know a whole lot just yet, I know enough to have...

    Looking specifically at T40001 is there something special about it? Or will any pulley pulled work? Also the tool they specify that are long bolts to support the bumper pulled out? Anyone know what thread/size those are??

    Hi all, I've done many searches over the internet and through this and another forum, but I don't really know what I'm searching for and similar symptoms / diagnosis of other threads are not matching up to my symptoms. The symptoms are: A squealing, slipping, grinding noise on cold start after...

    Hello all, I bought a gauge from Harbor Freight for a very reasonable price. It looks sturdy. I have looked around for the instructions on the forum but none of them tell me where the green, red or white wires go. Can anyone instruct me specifically how I can wire it? I have no idea about the...

    When I got the car and aftermarket HU was installed but removed before I got it. Installed a sony I had in the garage, front speakers sound great, no sound from rear except some very faint sound from right rear tweet. Sound kind of crackles when I play with the connectors in the door sills...

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but I'm a member of many others so I know about searching the forum and all that stuff. I currently drive a 99 Lexus LS400 but it hasn't lived up to its reputation of cheap ownership and I'm a little concerned about the approaching winter weather since my...
