    I did a search, but didn't find anything related to my problem so here goes: the washers work fine EXCEPT when the outside temp is below 10 or 15 degrees. I can hear the pump, the bottle is full, but nothing comes out. Anyone else experience this? How do I fix it? Thanks for the help.

    How important is the washers that sits on the top of each motor mount? After replacing mine and cleaning everything up I noticed I didn't install one :icon_eek: I also found a nut that had to of come off but not sure where it came from. It's the same nut as the one that are on the top and...

    So, what's the best practice with the captive "soft" steel crush washers on the banjo bolt if you have to crack 'em to do any work on the calipers? Snip 'em off and use copper crushers, or what do you recommend? I'm replacing my calipers with some rebuilts I got on Amazon. The bottom steel...

    So what's the best practice on the banjo bolts with the "kept" soft steel washers if you have to crack them to do any caliper work? Clip off the steel and use the copper crushers?

    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone came across this issue with a 2009 B6 Estate. Just happened out of the blue and I checked fuses etc but everything is intact. Any help or pointers gratefully appreciated. Thanks in anticipation...

    Installed a re-manufactured Lucas caliper which came with new copper crush washers but it seems the washers on the existing line/banjo bolt can't be removed?! I tried re-using them and despite being torqued to the correct value (35 N-m) the banjo union now leaks which I discovered while priming...

    Hi. I have a 07 Passat wagon 3.2v6 and both my wiper washers don't work as well as my rear wiper. (Front wipers work) I changed the washer pump motor and still nothing. I'm not getting any power to the fuse (42). Could it be the relay? If so which one? Thanks

    Another project that's taken a while to get done is the headlamp washers. Today I finally received the remaining parts and completed the job.

    can't bleed my brakes--ran through a quart of fluid. My O'really's calipers did not come with copper washers. Are they needed where banjo bolt connects to caliper? thanks, larry

    I posted this on Vortex, and I'm hoping I can find some answers here, too. I have an '08 Lux wagon with rain sensing wipers and automatic headlights. When I spray the windshield with washer fluid, the wipers don't come on to wipe it away. This occurred today, and the wipers would not activate...

    Replacing my PS pump, fairly straight forward except that I find the original sealing washers on the pressure hose at the pump are aluminum, I can only find copper replacements. Will they be ok? My instincts say they should be better than the alum ones but I have found I can't assume anything...

    I just put in my frankenturbo kit. I did the recommended and replaced the oil lines. I wish I hadn't now. On the supply line, the banjo bolt at the oil filter I cannot get to seal. I had on one big washer and one small copper, got it started, leaking a fair amount of oil. Snugged it down a...

    First post, thanks for all the info I've gotten lurking. We bought my daughter a 2001 Passat as her first car. Seems to have a leak at the power steering hose that goes from the pump, across the passenger side valve cover, to another "hose" that then goes to the rack. The hose that is leaking...

    I've found various instructions on how to replace a leaky power steering hose, Burgaflex part number 4B 042 228 93A. It runs from the power steering pump to another hose that then goes to the rack; so I understand. I've found the hose online for about $80 but most of the tutorials say to make...
