Can anyone tell me what those bolts should be torqued to? I feel like they are sort of important and I can’t seem to...

    MN TB tools for CR question for the gurus

    for the gurus that actually do some timing belts- I need to know if my orange metalnerd crank lock tool will work for a common rail. It looks nearly identical in the pictures (new one is pink anodized) as what I have for PD engines, except the part that protrudes appears shorter in the "new...

    Anyone got a Bentley handy? CJAA?

    Hey guys, I need to change an alternator, and I need a quick rundown of the procedure to put a 2011 jetta carrier into the service position. Never had to do it on a MK6.

    ALH Possible bent rod advice?

    I'll try to make a long story short. The car I am currently working on is the first I've seen that actually had timing belt strip itself and then the owner restarted it and let it run trying to figure out what was wrong with it. I've had others with suspected "slipped timing" or tensioner...
