I was just reading about that at this site. Is there a procedure on what/where/how much to grind, or will it be obvious when my new axles arrive?MrDave said:...You'll need to clearance your spindles so they don't bind when you torque the axle nut. Or you can use later spindles....
Confirmed once again! New complete axles are on...tongboy said:100mm scirocco axles should work without modification, same with 90mm outer and axles with 100mm inner joints (they fit on the same spline no drama, confirmed on scirocco and mk3 vr6 inner cv joints.)
basically - you shouldn't need to chop down the axle if you're using mk1 stuff (any combo of mk1 stuff)
MK1 radiator and brakes.. I thought about adding the ABS from the Passat, but decided against it for now.drrtybyl said:Did you use the MK1 radiator? What about ABS? Looks like the MK1 brake stuff(?) Thanks, Billy

It replaces the small factory rubber peice and really helps to reduce the engine movement. It doesn't really cause too much vibration either.
No, It won't. At least not with a 1Z Passat engine. And I think you'd have to cut so much it would have no support left. See This Post. Note how much closer the AC compressor is to the engine in the MK1 configuration.G60ING said:Does the Mk3 A/C Compressor fit without cutting the front cross member on the mk1?
sorry, haven't been on here in a while!drrtybyl said:Does your passenger side mount use the stock positioning? It looks like the holes are there for it on the block once you cut back the TDI engine cover plate?
