    So based on what I've read on the Mk6 forums, in this thread: Jack/Jack stands Questions - VW GTI MKVI Forum / VW Golf R Forum / VW Golf MKVI Forum / VW GTI Forum - most guys are lifting from the pinch weld, and placing a jack under a front control arm bushing (I think they do...

    I bought a set of 17" audi wheels last night from a guy online for a decent deal..... only problem with them is they all have a lot of curb rash. Some are worse than others. I work in a metal fab shop and one of the guys said he'd throw some weld on them so we can sand them down smooth again...

    So our 06 2.0 turbo sedan just had a weld failure inside the flange on the catalytic converter. Its a beautiful robotic looking weld all along the inside of the flange and connects the converter body to a stout flange with 4 bolt holes that connect to the turbo unit. You can see yours from under...

    Aloha everyone, this = my first post, and I spent a ton of time looking at other posts before putting this up... I am 5 days into my 'new' 2000 4motion Passat Wagaon. After looking at my first pic I was convinced there was a leak at oil sensor bolt. Also the bolt looked 'silver' instead of...

    So took the plunge with doing a res delete and replacing the stock muffler with a borla + SS tips. Everything is running great, but I have a question about how the tips are welded on. The guy that did the install didn't do a complete weld around the entire tips. Instead, he left a small gap...

    Alrighty guys, do your magic. Recently I have had a weld break on the flange that holds the catalytic converter to the back of the turbo. I have taken the bolts off, heated and re-attached the flange to the cat but everything I try besides welding proves ineffective. I have tried brazing the...

    on the seat frame? (B5.5) Mine is making the oil can "popping" noise again. First time it was replaced under warranty they did the whole frame. I'm really not interested in paying $500 for the frame if I can weld it back together. Passenger side is also doiing it to a lesser extent as well.

    So I have a lot of holes from rust on my aftermarket exhaust and I want to patch them up (and maybe replace the section if necessary). I'm looking for the CHEAPEST and most EFFIECIENT way to DIY (myself) in my backyard with some welding. I know there is a lot of different welding techniques...

    A buddy of mines is having issues with his scirocco's europsort race header ball socket flange weld break after about 400 kilometers of driving. So during the weekend as we were replacing his sloppy shifter links took a look. Right away I see he was missing something. missing transmission...

    I wanted to buy the jack adapter from the group buy page but it's too big for my cheapy Husky 3 ton floor jack, and since I know some craftsman and other brands have the small saddle I thought I'd post what I found for mine... I found it on Ebay for 19.99 with $5 shipping and now I see what...

    I've read multiple threads here on PW where JB Weld is held in high esteem for all kinds of repairs. A friend's truck has a pinhole leak in the radiator - the top part of the upper tank. It's metal, not plastic. Would JB Weld be adequate to patch this?

    I broke the lower hose on my AC condenser. I don't know much about welding but do you think this could be fixed with welding? If so what price is reasonable? Thanks.
