    My 99 was driving just find, zero issues. One day I was driving to work and it died. Seemed like a fuel issue. Took it to a VW dealer, the same I always use, who at first said it was a fuel pump issue. I said go for it, repair it. They did so then came back and said there is no compression from...

    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...

    I don't post here anymore, haven't in months really, but I still lurk pretty often for guides on how to fix my passat.

    Home Page > Search > 078 103 221 AK > ES#283279 Breather Hose - 078103221AK I love ECS, they're great. But the pricing on a part like this is insane! :crazy: I'm sure it's more like the cost of that part is high for ECS as opposed to ECS marking it up to the gods, but for what is likely a...

    My heater knob serves no purpose, so it was the ideal spot for my battery meter. The meter also has buttons which I use on a daily basis, so I didn't want to have to reach though the steering wheel to get to them.

    Hey all. Been a long while since I've been on here, but I do creep on here from time to time. I have kind of a dilemma with fixing something wrong with my B5. Here's the story: so about 3 weeks ago, I was driving to a rugby game from where i go to school in CT to Albany, NY.. somewhere between...

    I've got an 02 Variant auto, 4motion. Standard suspension. On new General Altimax Arctic, stock size. I'm going to try for 12-14" and see if I can get it stuck I think. On a varying 10-20 grade? maybe about 100 yards, throw in a few 45-80* turns.. On the same hill through 6" I had 0 problems...
