    Hi all - I am in the process of replacing a bunch of parts that I destroyed when I slid my front end into the metal bumper of a parked car this past winter. Some of the fan blades for the viscous cooling fan were destroyed on the top bit. When I spin the fan clutch, it has a bit of a wobble to...

    Whenever I go on/off the throttle abruptly, or sometimes just driving over an irregular surface, I can feel the shifter move a fair amount. I'm wondering if this is fairly typical or if I have a motor or tranny mount on its way out? 118k miles on the car so far. Rob

    04 V6 Passat 165.000 miles I get a very, very slight wobble in the steering wheel when the wheels start to straighten out from taking gradual turns. The tires are new and I don't get any wobble or vibration when going down the road so I don't think it's a balance issue. Power steering fluid it...

    Hello all, I have a mysterious problem that needs to be fixed quickly. Recently I changed my tyres. I put the back wheels on the front. After about a week I noticed a kind of wobble when accelerating. This wobble turned into vibration over the course of about 130 miles. By the time I had done...

    FWD, manual transmission, 1.8t AWM It feels, at its worst, like the whole car is wobbling back and forth. The wobble gets worse depending on how hard I accelerate, though in third gear it goes away between 3,000 and about 4,500 RPM. Cruising on a highway is fine, but if I put my foot down to...

    I joined this site because my computer when it' on average mpg reading jumps from what you'd expect, around 40 ish to 130 mpg..impossible right. Am I missing something in a setting or is it throwing a wobbly? I've only just bought a 2006 2 litre tdi estate

    Hi guys. I had my tie rods replaced back in June. I don't drive the car very often, so I've put very little freeway miles on it since then. Yesterday, I was on the freeway and it felt like the wheel(s) was/were riding uneven - there seemed like a wobble at higher speeds (>50), and it was...

    Hi I have heard of these wobble bolts but never seen any. Has anybody had any experiences with them ? Really I would like to know if they would be safe to use on my B5 passat to fit to some wheels that are 110 pcd they are off a vauxhall. Any advice would be apreciated Cheers james...

    There is a whine coming from my visibly wobbling fan pulley and I am not very familiar with this engine. Is there a way to realign the pulley so it isn't off balance or do I need to replace it? It looks like my main crank pulley (the aluminum one) is also slightly wobbly but I already replaced...

    I have a set of winter tires on older VW Jetta rims 5x110 that I used on my scion tc. I now have a 2009 VW passat 5x112. I am curious if these wobble bolts will work to make these fit or does this only work when putting larger pattern to a smaller one? I am assuming the 2mm difference is safe to...

    My 2000 V6 Passat has a wobble in the front end. On the highway going fast, it's a really fast wobble. Slowing down at a stop light or going like 20 mph it's a slow, loping wobble. I can feel it tug the wheel a bit, particularly if I steer back and forth a little or turn. I had my mechanic ride...

    I have a 2003 Passat GLX V6 that has developed a wobble. I call it a wobble because that's as close as I can get to describing what's going on. The wobble happens under acceleration but not after the car is at highway speed. It feels as if there is a bad tire or a bent rim. I noticed this...

    I have a '98 Passat two wheel drive. I have done a search and found a lot of posts about this issue, but they do not address the specifics of my car as as I see them. I noticed that when I turned sharply at low speeds I felt a sort-of left to right pusing of the steering wheel. Did not happen...

    I've had the car for about 7 months...2003 V6 5-speed FWD and there's always been the sound like a cupped tire in the passenger rear. So, a week or so ago, I jacked up the rear of the car and spun what I thought was a bad wheel. Sure enough, it looks like the wheel/tire has a hop in it...like...
