    So I had one wheel lock bolt head damaged that I couldn't remove it by wheel lock key, finally I removed it by drilling it and than using screw extractor drill bit So anyone who has such problem it can be solved by drilling multiple times.
  2. Motor mounts! Victory!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today's care and feeding of the '04 1.8T Wagon was the main motor mounts. Both appeared to be leaking Barney Blood, but not as bad as some.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey All: Just wanted to write to share something positive. I just successfully installed a Momo shifter knob on my Tip shifter. So happy to get rid of that boring, stock knob. No idea what that engineer was thinking when he decided to make that thumb button part of such a sharp interior...
