I really like that lift.Put our Passat up on the lift today to get a look at the engine mounts, as I noticed it was rocking way too much during gear changes. I had already ordered a new snub nose mount (figured it couldn't hurt), but once I got a look underneath I found that at least the left one of the 034 Density Line motor mounts that I installed 60k miles ago (now at 132k miles) had broken. Oh, and yeah, the snub nose mount was worn, too.

I also discovered why the BRAKE warning would pop up every now and then and I had to add fluid...the RF brake caliper has a slight leak. This was another one of the set from a complete brake refresh kit from Powerstop I installed a couple of years back. Given that I have replaced both rear calipers again since then, I am very disappointed in the durability of these Powerstop rebuilt calipers and won't be using them again.
