I am swapping differentials in my 03 Passat 1.8T FWD and was wondering how much fluid I need to put in once reassembled. Need this answered quick. Thanks
You wouldn't be asking this question if you knew how to set up the diff.Hello, as I finished closing up my transmission today after swapping differentials, I noticed that the output flanges for the axles have a little bit of play to them. Not much when pushing in an out, but in a orbital motion (looking at the transmisssion from where the axle would be), it moves around a little bit (about 1mm or so). Is this normal, and what is the amount of play that is "within spec"?
Damn bro, thanks for the help, but idk why you're so salty. lolFrom: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/volkswagen-passat-b5-discussion/476962-output-flange-play.html
It is much better to keep one issue in one thread.

I suggest you replace the whole transmission or take it to someone who knows how to set it up properly.
180 miles, no problems... no noises... I don't see how you can set backlash on this transmission anyways, because the pinion gear did not look like it could be adjusted in any way. You can measure how much backlash there is, but adjusting it?...Not being salty just trying to help, as you are very likely to find out soon after you start driving it like that.
There is a very slight chance that it might be OK, otherwise the dif will be destroyed.
That's the Ozzie culture. So attribute it to some cultural differences. These folks just talk like that over there. I worked 6 months in Adelaide and had to adjust to it. :crazy:Damn bro, thanks for the help, but idk why you're so salty.
