    My 2012 CC started making a "groaning" noise when Im turning the wheel to park. Not when moving so I don't believe it a CV joint. Could this be the upper strut mount bushing?
  2. EOS Technical Forum
    I am the one owner of a 2007 Eos that just now started to have leak issues at the window to windshield pillar joint.

    I need to replace an inner CV boot or the short shaft on a 96 Automatic Jetta. I've done them many times on a standard transmission with no problem. Can't remove the short shaft because the joint is too big for the hole. Looks like I need to drop the transmission to make room. Any suggestions?

    Volkswagen originally provides equal weight drive shafts for the MK1 vehicles with manual transmissions (about 10# each). The longer passenger shaft is hollowed out so the weights will be equal on both sides. Some of the "bargain" axle assemblies have solid shafts on the passenger side. While...

  9. Passat B5 Forums
    Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my thread. Do the two bushings on each front lower suspension arm last substantially longer than the ball joint at the end of each arm? The reason I ask is that upgraded bushings are available for sale individually and the ball joint is not, my Haynes manual...
  10. Passat Owners Club
    I have just had to replace both sets of tail lights in our 2009 Passat because about a third of the both the brake and indicator LEDs stopped working. I am shocked by this as they are pretty damn expensive and LEDs are supposed to be long lasting. Both sides had failed so it was a big bill. I...
