  1. Wha are the chances that my rear swing arm bushings are worn on an 02?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I feel like there may be some lateral free play in the "rear end" of my 02 FWD with 61K on the clock. I'm not at all sure that's what it is but I'd like to rule it in or out anyway. I sometimes think I feel some side to side movement in the back of the car, especially in a bumpsteer, wheel-hop...
  2. wha's the purpose of thos holes in the intercooler

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    are thos holes use to suck more air into the car? if yes, I am thinkin about to get a tube , and lead more air to the side mount intercooler. does both side [front and rear ] of the intercooler suck in air?
