    I had removed the sway bar and drove like that for quite some time. ( it feels smoother) as I decided to put it back on I realized that the inner edge of the front right tire is worn out considerably. Does driving without sway bar cause it? Or simply an alignment issue?

    '04 1.8T FWD w/ 148k. Last rear job was done at 20k-ish due to rotor warp. On my RR caliper, the outside has plenty of "meat" left on it, the other side is scraped down to bare metal, so it's making an awful racket (and it's messed up the rotor of course). When I replace the pads and rotor...

    Has anyone experienced this problem (see Pics). These are the front RH pads from 04 Passat v6 4M. Can this wear be the result of fitting the pads on the wrong side, I say again these were taken from the RH front wheel. Not only has the inside pad worn much more than the outer but its worn more...

    Uneven tyre wear? Update: now rear ended! Hi Had to replace both front tyres due to wear on the inner edges/shoulders. The rest of the tread was fine. The car drives straight & handles well. I have done a little searching, it seems when you are lowered, this wear is normal with no way of...

    I was looking around my engine bay, and decided to take the cover off. This I what I found... The plugs were last replaced at 40K, the car now has 77K. The coil packs were recalled at 10K mi, I believe. Is this cause for concern? The car seems to run fine.
