    2012 passat tdi 02E Dsg removal

    Yes, I removed the subframe and did it with the car on jacks stands, used the trans jack to lower the subframe to the ground. I had jack stands at all 4 corners so the entire car was off the ground.

    This is the jack I used. I got it on sale for $135. Worked fine, I also used a ratchet strap to secure the trans to the jack.

    Need help with cables...

    This looks to be the VW part - Ground Cable - Volkswagen (1K0-971-250) but for $60 I think I would try the local auto parts store, it is just a ground cable.

    2012 passat tdi 02E Dsg removal

    Just did this 2 week-ends ago and removing the subframe made the job not bad at all. I do recommend using a transmission jack as the DSG is big and heavy, I also used a ratchet strap to secure the trans to the jack, Also the trans jack makes dropping the subframe a piece of cake.
