    Hello Fellow Passat Masochists, I have a 2005 B5.5 1.8t 4Motion Wagon, it's an awesome car when on the road but currently it has a rear subframe/rear axle assembly that is snapped on both sides just behind the front mounts. It was a more or less instant failure as it started to squeek...

    I think I have isolated the knocking noise I experience occasionally on hard bumps down to the subframe. Now I am looking for a DIY on their replacement. I might simply be missing it but I didn't see one when I searched. My real question is, do you need to drop the entire subframe to replace...

    By locking down the rear subframe and rear differential, rear suspension geometry is maintained and driveline rigidity is improved, resulting in a more "connected" relationship between driver and machine. Rear suspension feedback is enhanced, rear sway bar upgrades are more effective and a...

    Just picked up another Passat, needs to have the oil pump done, which I am doing this weekend. It is a 2004 1.8t 4motion auto. I have read about having to drop the subframe, but read conflicting posts on weather the sub-frame bolts are tourque to yield. Does anyone know if I definetely need to...

    I've been reading various threads about replacing the front lower control arms and some say to cut the bolt at the frame side of the control arms and some say to lower the sub-frame to get the bolt out. Is the problem bolt on both the frontward and rearward arms? Or, only one of the arms? It...

    Hi, I had the oil pan replaced about 18 months ago. I know the mechanic had to drop the sub-frame to allow clearance. I am thinking he did not replace the bolts (or torque them to the correct value, perhaps just leaning on them. I now hear a faint clunking on the passenger side of the car...

    I bought OEM transmission mounts, snub mount, and four subframe bushings. These are the only suspension parts that I haven't replaced. I wanted to do all this so it prolongs the life of my other suspension parts I replaced. I checked everywhere on this forum and found very little...

    I would like to replace the front subframe bushings on my W8 while I am under there to do the control arms. I would like to know what is required to replace the bushings. The Bentley has nothing on the topic. Do these require a press to get them in/out, or can they be pulled in/out with a...

    I have had a really funny time trying to find a shop that can drill out the subframe and put in an insert for the stripped bolt. One place suggested the whole sub frame should come out - with that I may just as well replace that part of the sub frame. Another wants me to go by with an insert...

    Yes I have searched, and haven't found a clear answer. Does the subframe bar on the A6 fit all B5's or only 4motion?

    I have a subframe knocking issue. I own a 2010 CC 2.0T. I have learned that this is a common VW issue. The dealership has denied repairs due to an accident they found on carfax. It's bull because there is one accident with the previous owner. My car didn't have the issue from 37k to 50k. The...
