    Clutch quit on me

    Hi folks, I was driving through stop and go traffic and all of a sudden the shifter did not want to go into gear anymore. Almost as if pressing on the clutch didn't do a thing. The only way I can get it into gear is with the engine off. In fact, this is how I managed to roll the car out of...

Pushed the car out of the puddle in neutral, tried to start and it would not turn over. Luckily, I was...

    Cam sprocket won't budge

    I'm removing the TB in my B4, everything going smooth so far, drove out the cam bolt, loosened the tensioner, cam lock and IP pin are in, but for the life of me cannot get the cam sprocket to move. I've tapped a punch through the little hole probably harder than I should have and nothing. Any...

    A3/B4 TB Tools in CT?

    Hi Folks, I was wondering if anyone near the central/south CT area has TB tools for the B4 that I can borrow (or rent) for a day. I can pick up and drop off. Just need all the locking pins/tools (cam, crank, IP) and the tensioner spanner. Crank spanner would be nice too, though I don't intend...

    IP Timing with VCDS

    When pulling up the timing graph with VCDS, I'm not sure which of the listed engines correspond to mine! I have a 96 Passat, but none of the options seem fully straightforward. By the way, I might as well use this opportunity to ask how do I know if I have a 1Z or AHU? My ECU is BK, if that...

    JSW Back Seat

    Hi all, Sorry if this is too simple of a question, but do the rear seats in the JSW ('10, '11) fold down all the way flat? I recently test drove one and the sales guy told me that they do not, but I thought I'd post here and see if there are any simple tricks to make it happen. I may be...
