  3. Torn control arm rubber, but no play?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm getting a clunking noise on hard lefts, similar to the noise I got when I had to replace an upper control arm last year.

  20. Torn CV boot – replace boot or whole axle?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just noticed a torn CV boot on the front passenger side (joint still OK: no clicking noise).

What would you recommend I...
