    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On a recent trip to the Toy Store for Men, Harbor Freight, I was on a quest to obtain a nice 3/8" ratchet, as my new chariot, a '17 CR-V, uses 10mm bolts for nearly everything, and a 1/2" drive is overkill for that, if I even had a 1/2" 10mm, which I don't. Like many DIYers my only 3/8"...
