    Hello, I've just got a quick question. I'm looking to replace a rear wheel bearing, and was wondering if vcds is needed for the electric parking break to just to the bearing. I'm not doing any brake work, so it would just be the caliper being removed from the rotor. I hope I explained the...

    Hey guys! I just randomly got an OBDEleven Pro (the next gen version) as a birthday gift. I'm about to go on a trip and I'm not going to use it for at least the next month, which means, I need to decided whether or not I'm keeping it. I read a little bit about it and it seems to be extremely...

    Hello all. Had a bit of an accident in my '08 Passat B6 2.0tdi 16v DSG.

    Hello all you helpful folk! I recently posted about saving an 07 wagon from the grasp of the crusher. So far I've had great luck slowly getting it back on the road. I have a few things left, like an exhaust, a lower control arm in the rear, the unlock button doesn't work on the fob, and a few...

    I saved a wagon (2007 Passat) from the crusher recently, or at least I hope I have. She's got about 150k miles on the clock, 2.0 automatic. The car is in really great shape, but that's all I know about it. Here's the dilemma. The reason the previous owner was sending her to scrap was because...

    I downloaded a file from Ross-Tech that explains how to install a USB driver that possible would work on my PC.

    What measuring blocks does VAGcom VCDS provide for checking/verifying the timing on the BPY engine? for the old 1.8T and 2.7T, I used blocks 090-093. I would assume similar data is available for the 2.0T? What ARE the values/ranges to correct timing of the BPY engine?

  19. Vag-Com and OBD11 Coding
    So as I am starting to get back in to the VW world I pulled out my VAGCOM/VCDS tough book and fired it up only to get the blue screen of death. Having a tablet that I'd much rather use, I saw that VCDS had an APP. My question is has anyone used it and what were your thoughts?
