I went underneath expecting to see an aluminum oil pan so I can use some wooden blocks to lift passat engin from 1 side just like a i do with the ALH engine and it seems to be a plastic oil pan, how are u guys lifting the engine from 1 side on the passat?

Pretty sure under the plastic cover/insulator is a steel/aluminium pan, but I still wouldn't use that a support point. I go above with an engine support bar even though it gets in the way just a little bit..still plenty doable. There is also a part of the block the sticks out beyond the oil pan both front and back that could be used with some wood blocks if space allows with all components still installed.

I installed the TB in my passat, man there are a lot of spaghetti to get to it, water pump sensor broke it was already brittle, so i was not able to finish it, im about 65 % done,, now i need to order it on Monday, i found on top of the engine where we have insulation 1 of the the 2 that looks like relays was completely melted,,, passat drives to Stockton sees over 100 deg daily so now i got to order that too,,

Wow! Can you post a pic of those? I have a 2015 CVCA as well, now 71k miles. Just replaced main fusible fuse and one abs sensor.

There is an option to get a pump without the shroud over the impeller, did you get that? That sensor wouldn't be necessary at that point, and I believe even if you got the shrouded version you can leave it unplugged and the shroud will stay in the open position. Not sure about a CEL though if left unplugged.
I've seen/heard of some of those sensors melting, they're the DPF pressure sensors (one pre, one post). Plastic maybe wasn't the best material for those.

I'll take a pic, it is completely melted, hope I can figure out how to post a pic now, what im going to do, is to leave the engine cover out from engine bay maybe that will help to dissipate the heat,

They are the same part#s, but now I found the plug that plugs into the sensor was also meted and disconfigured, I got to buy it and wire the plug, Passat running great only with the cell from the sensor

I was trying to find you the part numbers the other day, but the system I use was down at the time. A VW/Audi electrical pin tool makes very quick work of swapping connectors over! Nice to hear you're back up and running.

Have you already purchased the timing belt kit?
I purchased my kit from ID Parts. To my surprise, when I opened it, it had the complete instructions pamphlet. Surprise because I had previously paid a subscription to erWin and downloaded everything for my car. Oh well, now I'm prepared to fix anything else I run into. :cool:

That's super nice!

IMO, this TB job is not that different than any other TDI:
1. CR engines are DOHC, which are a pain for space to work in the engine bay
2. CR engines have a HPFP, but the pump doesn't really need much fiddling around, not like VE pumps (never had a VE engine). Also, there is no torsion value to fiddle with either (PD engines)
3. Not sure for CVCA (Passat), but for CRUA (GSW), the motor mount needs to be disconnected, same as for BEW and BRM

Otherwise the procedure goes like this (more or less):
1. Jack the car up from the passenger side, and change to a jack stand
2. Remove the splash shield from below engine bay
3. Remove right side wheel/tire
4. Disconnect the several brackets and one clamp (DEF injector)...this is what takes a lot of time
5. Remove upper TB cover
6. Support engine. In this case CVCA/CRUA, the oil pan has a plastic cover, so supporting from bottom with a jack won't do, you'll need to support from the top
7. Remove passenger side motor mount and bracket (new, one-use bolts should be included with the kit)...I usually need to raise/lower the engine to get the bracket out
8. Remove serpentine belt, harmonic balancer (bolts might strip), lower TB cover
9. Find TDC, lock crank, lock cam, lock HPFP
10. Remove tensioner, remove TB, remove water pump (WP), remove rollers
11. Install new WP, new rollers, new tensioner, new TB
12. Tension TB, rotate engine twice by hand, to make sure timing wasn't somehow lost
13. Close it up and fire it up
14. Pat yourself in the back

bringing this back alive. I have CJAA timing belt tool kit. What exactly do I need to buy to work with CJAA tools for CVCA? I know I need one or two tools to make this possible.

I just noticed today, in our main page to the right, there is a panel called "resources" and it has this one:

Plus PD timing belt and ALH procedures. You can study any of them and apply the differences, which again, are not that many. The early CR engines had a sprocket with 3 bolts, the CVCA/CRUA engines (I have both) only have a single bolt which doesn't even need loosening.
