    I got the control arms to my place today can any one tell me if these are the full metal version. They look different from the audizine thread.

    Just a bit of advice to those of us that have or are planning to go with the fcp control arm kit: It comes with a set of standard outers and a full set of hd inners/outers. I was too lazy at the time to do the inners/outers, so I just threw on the standard outers. After only two months of...

    I just saw the tie-rod recall for the the 99 passat, haven't really looked at the recalls. I replaced them myself when they went bad, I still have the receipt. Will VW reimburse me? Also my sunroof drains clogged, water backed up into my headliner ruining it. It dripped on my leather seats...

    I am looking for the rubber covers of the power steering tierod ends. The left one has been slightly damaged (due to the wear of time) while the right one show time wear signs. I checked ETKA and only the complete tierod is provided (8E0 419 811B). Given that the car has very low mileage...

    I really think my tierods need replaced. he front has never felt tight from day one. now it sometimes feels like I have a flat tire. I thought maybe the tires were low, or the shocks were shot... nope. I took off the driver side shock attempting to replace the bilstein and it was stiff. So...

    Quick question. Which would you guys recommend: Lemfoerder or Meyle brand tierod assembly? The Lemfoerders are priced at $240 for both and the Meyle tie rods are priced at $186 for both. There's about a $55 dollar difference. I just want to make sure I get one thats considered to be good...

    I'm new to this site, but I'm hoping to get some suggestions on a problem I'm having with my 2000 1.8 wagon. Based on the recommendation from a non-dealer service shop - which I trust and that was voted best place to take your car and not get ripped off in the local paper - I had my tie-rod...

    Does this look like an OEM tie-rod? How about this...

    MY pass side TRE is shot and needs to be replaced, but driver side looks fine. Do I need to replace them in pairs? Or do people just replace them in pairs to save an extra alignment if the second one goes after the first is replaced and aligned?
  14. B5 Garage
    I took my Passat in for an alignment. The alignment shop said the right front tierod locknut is stripped and couldn't tighten. They told me to take it to a mechanic. I did. Now the nut is missing. Am I going to need to replace the tie rod end? I'm trying to figure out what part to order...

    For the third time in just over a year my front passenger tie-rod end has play and will need to be replaced (eventually). I guess my question is, what could be causing this, and how do i fix it? about the car: '99 B5, 1.8t. also, 1 year ago after replacing both tie-rod ends and upper control...
