    Passat or CC aluminum steering knuckles and LCA to save weight

    Do you know if the B7/MK6 jetta tie rods thread into the tie rod ends of the B6? I read Tharkholds list and he didn't list the tie rods, just the ends, so I'm assuming the tie rod ends of the B6 would thread into our B7/MK6 tie rods but wanted confirmation as I am acquiring all the parts for a...

    Idle speed increasing

    Ah. I’ll have to do some troubleshooting to confirm an issue with the charging system then. Plan is to shoot voltage across the battery at standard idle and also with car off and then a few hours later to see if the battery is maintaining voltage

    Idle speed increasing

    Did you ever find the culprit? I have the same issue. Car will start and idle at normal RPM, the randomly go to 900 or 1000. Going to get the multimeter and check it tomorrow with the car off and on to see what voltage measures across the battery to try and rule out charging/battery as the issue...

    2013 Passat TDI Rattle Noise - interior rattle?

    Haha I knew I’d get more NVH when I installed the stiffer mounts, just trying to see if anyone has been down the road of trying to dampen interior rattles so I can possibly speed up the trial and error process

    Hello all! I have a 2013 Passat TDI that has a rattle noise only during moderate acceleration from a stop and only within a certain RPM range, about 1600-2100 RPM. The noise is interior I believe as I removed the belly pan, fender liner on the driver side front, and checked under the hood for...

    Dog bone insert

    Hello all! I was planning on putting BFI’s stage 1 dog bone insert in my Passat as it says on their website the stage 2 is not recommended for TDI’s. Anyway, will the dogbone insert cause premature failing of any other motor/transmission mounts? Thanks!

    2013 NMS Passat headlight adjustment?!

    Replace bad glow plug or all?

    Hello all. Got a CEL last night, scanned for codes and it was P0673 for cylinder 3 glow plug. My question is, should I replace just that single glowplug that is bad or all 4? I’m not sure when, if they even were replaced before. Thanks!

    How do u get a noticeable turbo sound

    Not just for sound, supposedly the discharge pipe helps with throttle response and the exhaust I’d get primarily to remove the DPF, Adblue and EGR...for less of a headache and you get way more mpg following all that garbage being removed

    How do u get a noticeable turbo sound

    Neuspeed makes a discharge pipe for our cars that makes turbo noise louder, along with get you can get a cold air intake and then get a open exhaust, Rawtek and Buzzken make good exhausts for the B7
