    So as I am trying to save a 475,000 KM passat V6, I need to replace the crankshaft seal as it's leaking. It was a pain to get the 24 mm bolt off but finally got it done yesterday.

    No, not for anything big... but I've been suffering for some time with stupidly squeaking B pillars and creaking rear door cards. Normally I'd take care of this myself, but two things... B-pillar air bags make me nervous and the main reason.... CPO warranty FTMFW! :thumbup: I've got an...

Is it just me, or does this seem outrageous for an oil change? I guess it has to do with the synthetic blend used, but would it be more cost effective for me...
