    I have a 2007 vw Rabbit, im going to attempt to remove the passengers side cv axle, this axle is not bolted to the transmission, how do i remove it?
  3. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Started making noises, it looked like the right front CV axle needed to be replaced. When the mechanic got in there turned out the transmission (standard) housing was damaged. Replacing the transmission estimate is $2000-3000. The car has other problems, the AC generator went out and needs to...

    Can a bad inner CV joint be replaced with a good used one from another shaft? I had tranny fluid leak from the differential seal and thin out the grease on the one that went bad. When I took the bad cv joint off the axle I want to use with a different proven, used inner CV joint, the was a...

    Converted to disc brakes the in rear and since then trans fluid is leaking onto the inside of the rotor. Any thoughts on what it might be? I only used 1 gasket in the repair kit as instructed and did torq axle nuts to 214. I have replaced all internal parts twice. Have not replaced rear...

    Does a stock 1983 VW Rabbit Gas 1.7 have a 90mm axle or a 100mm one?

    Hi All, ... Drug two "Rabbit Pickups" back from the chaparral yesterday - quite a feat, I must say! These cars had sat for decades, and the one of them was literally embedded in the dirt almost to its axles. How we got them both out in one day was miraculous. And, we did have near tragedy as...

    Does anyone know where I can get 02E DSG axle seals? The one on the right side is leaking, and is getting worse. I cannot find it on the Keffer VW parts page, for drive-line. Is there a DSG parts list somewhere? eBay has some, but not for mine.

    DSG Axle Seals Any instructions out there on how to change the axle seals on the DSG? My passenger side one is leaking, and slinging fluid under the car. Not a very bad leak, not yet. Apparently, they know this can happen, as there is a rounded shield above it to keep the fluid from slinging...

    Hi, I am a new Golf owner (Mk4, 2003, 5 door) - I have noticed on both sides of the rear wheels, a low bar (see pic) connected to the underside. I do not know what this is - and if it is normal? Can anyone advise?

    I have pulled my driver side axle to replace it. I ordered a rebuilt one, twice and neither have fit. Both of them bind when you tighten the axle nut fully. I can back off half a turn and have no problems. When I compare the old axle with the rebuilt there is a difference in the way the ends...

    I have a 1983 Rabbit that is all electric. The batteries are in area of former back seat and a few behind the rear axle (96 LI batteries... 440 lbs). The rear sits a little low and the front a little high. What is best way to adjust to ride level? Thanks, Jack

    1980 VW Rabbit Diesel Truck 5 Speed I just put the transmission back in and connected up the passengers side axel into the transmission without any problem. :(However I cannot get the drivers side axle in, it hits the transmission flange that it bolts to. like its too long. I tried turning...

    Upon closer inspection of the adjustable front axle on my son's 67 Beetle, not at all happy with the discovery of an extended steering column - someone has welded an extension to the steering box - wouldn't trust it... What are my options? New 'Box + column? Is there an extended UJ conversion...

    Grease on the interior shift linkage is dried up white stuff. Is it petroleum based or some kind of soap stuff? What do you use?

    I have a 2008 Rabbit, 2.5L w/ 6 speed Automatic. I noticed the boot of the inner CV joint on the driver side front it completely torn. I've watched some videos of replacement procedures but they were all for the 6 bolt flanged axle. I felt comfortable and confident in doing the repair myself...

    2009 2.5 Jetta "thud" when downshifting or transitioning from coasting to back on gas I have a 2009 2.5 Jetta. The dealer replaced the transmission and the driver's side axle under CPO warranty. Unfortunately, I have a "thud" that the dealer can't figure out and has resorted to saying that it's...

    Noob to this forum. So hope i do this right lol. Getting a bad vibration while on the gas.Feels like I'm riding on a rumble strip while accelerating thru all gears but while in 6th it is no where near as bad as all the other gears. Am I wrong to suspect bad half axle or bad flywheel? Feels like...

    Ok so the other day I was at a stoplight and i went to accelerate and there was a horrible grinding noise and the car wouldnlt move. I found that somehow all the bolts that hold the drivers axle to the trans had backed out. Well i fixed that but now for some reason i cant find R or 5th with...
