    So I was replacing a 1.8t water pump when I torqued the last bolt down, at 88 inch lbs, nothing but butter. Drilled the hole a little bigger and ended up snapping off my tap inside the hole. I have no clue how to go about removing it. Can I use an acetylene torch to try to remove it or would I...

    When I have my 2017 1.8T passat car in drive and have brakes on, moving slowly I am hear some slight tap/ knock sound on one side of front of car. When I put it in neutral and let off and reapply brakes I don't hear it, only when in drive. Any ideas?

    Please help me to find a place to connect the power to my AEM Boost Gauge. I need switched +12V to stay ON during cranking as well. If power is iterrupted during cranking, the gauge resets itself to a false zero. So far terminal stud 75X under the dash does not comply. Also, what is the...

    Am preparing to install a boost gauge (GlowShift GS-T701) into my 2006 tFSI 2L. Kit comes with an 1/8" NPT "T" piece with the restrictor end to the gauge See that some folks have cut the vacuum pipe to the fuel pressure regulator and inserted the "T" there. But posts so far seen are for Jetta...

    I've been reading around on the forums that I can tap and use a LOC on the two "sub" wires back by the monsoon amp in the trunk instead of from behind my double din. Is this true? and what happens to those speakers that were acting as the subs? by tapping into, does that really just mean...

    I'd rather not go through the firewall if I can help it. I assume that ignition-switched power is the way to go, even though the amp has a power-on-signal input, but since I've never installed an amplifier before I really don't know. Whatever I connect to, it'll need to be able to support 200W...
