      OK, I was wrong. The W8 tensioner (as an assembly) does swing to loosen like other cars I've worked on. But the tensioning unit itself is a separate piece, unlike others where the arm/pulley/spring...

      Not sure there should be any prying involved. As I remember, the W8 belt tensioner is not like the spring-loaded, swinging arm type found on many cars. I think there's an adjuster bolt that tightens...

      Jerk shifting into 1st from stop?

      Passat W8 6-speed, 01E, pretty sure internals are similar to other 6-spd 01E's (but bell housing different)

      Scenario 1:

      Car at full stop, idling in neutral
      Press clutch to floor, shift into...

      I am hoping this is just a vacuum leak, as I have found my brake booster hose is cracked at the fitting that goes to the brake booster. Found that tracking down a P1136 (lean.) Tested by covering...
    6. Whistle/moan cruising 30-35mph? Sounds like wind whistling?

      '01 Audi TT Quattro 225hp AMU

      When I'm driving about 30-35 mph, maybe 40, there is sometimes a "whistling" sound. Not high pitched, not following engine RPM, not even following what I would expect...
    7. If your rear caliper piston won't turn in, check the parking brake

      Today I was replacing rear rotors and pads on an '01 A4 Quattro. The piston turned freely but it just wasn't going in at all.

      I googled this and found others with the same problem, but no...

      No problem. Zimmermann discs and Akebono pads in a full kit from fcpuro.com. I was surprised it didn't come with the "sliders" and I couldn't find any others, so I cleaned them up and reused them.

      Still running fine after 200 miles of driving.

      When I filled it, it took a little over 7 quarts, which surprised me, because I though the full capacity was something like 9 liters. I did follow...
    10. Whatcha call the pad "sliders" and do you need them?

      I don't know the name for these parts, but they are a thin piece of bent stainless steel that fit between the little tabs at the ends of the brake pads and the bracket the pads sit in.

      Provides a...

      Everything's been put back together for a couple weeks, but had to wait for a clear weekend day to fill it.

      Without more info about your symptoms, hard to say.

      Master mechanic I trust at VW took a look at the pan and said that looks pretty good, he wouldn't worry about new fluid causing a problem. So that's what I'll do.

      Wow.

      Wow wow wow.

      In further researching this, I found a PDF for a BMW ZF-5HP-19FL, that shows the "bore plug retainer" as almost exactly the "L" part I made.

    18. Fixing "no reverse when warm" on ZF transmission valve body

      This post is to log my attempt to fix my daughter's transmission on her '01 Audi A4 Quattro with 01V transmission (ZF 5HP19FLA.) I will be updating with photos and info as I go.

    19. Would you put new ATF in this? (pan pic)

      I am doing some "targeted surgery" on my daughter's '01 A4 transmission valve body. But that's not the point of this thread.

      The point is, to work on the valve body, you obviously have to drain...

      But I should have mentioned, sedan. However, even the Avant (wagon) shows the same rear suspension setup as the sedan.
