    2013 Passat TDI DSG DMF question.

    Correct the DMF126 is what I used and it worked perfect, no issues and it has now been close to 40k miles. Comes with the pilot bearing but you will need to order the bolts.

    2014 Passat TDI CKRA Camshaft Seal Help

    I bought an entire engine harness for $80 on Ebay when VW wanted $42 for a 1 foot piece of wire.

    2014 Passat TDI CKRA Camshaft Seal Help

    You do not need any tool for the cam seal, I pulled mine out with a small hooked pick, took less than a minute. Here is the pick set I used , $2 at Harbor Freight. https://www.harborfreight.com/mini-pick-and-hook-set-63697.html

    Front clunk - Sway bar Links or Bushings

    IDparts says they do not have bushings for an NMS Passat so I say they are for the older Passats not ours.

    Front clunk - Sway bar Links or Bushings

    I have never been able to find anyone who sells the front sway bar bushings, seems they are not available, even from VW.

    Easy Coolant Flush

    I switched mine to G12+ right after my heater core clogged, not a single issue since, I use Pentofrost SF.

    B7 TDI starts but won't stay running

    Exactly, would not be the first time they filled the gas station with the wrong fuel.

    B7 TDI starts but won't stay running

    Just left from filling up and the car dies, are you sure you filled up with diesel and not gasoline?

    NMS Birthday Mileage Roll call

    My oil ash load was 99.2g with 300k miles which is 0.00033g / mile and that figure pretty much held true since I first started recording the oil ash load @ 40K. Mine was 33g @ 100k miles and my mileage is 85% highway.

    NMS Birthday Mileage Roll call

    Nope, completely stock, Changed the DPF @ 300k miles not because it was clogged but because I had the time during the lock down to change it. I had bought a complete exhaust from someone who deleted theirs right after they bought it, dpt had 3k miles on it. Still on the original HPFP as well...

    Coolant leak

    It is just a cheap plastic part (held on by 4 small fasteners) that is torqued each time the oil filter is changed, I bought the OEM when I did mine ($375) and the $50 version I got off of Amazon looks to be identical. I suspect it will fail again hence why I have a spare.
