      I ended up buying the tires/wheels and gave it a try. They fit just fine, a little snug in the front wheel well especially but no rubbing.

      I was wondering if anyone knows whether you can mount 2012+ Passat wheels/tires (215/60R16) on a MkV Jetta (205/55R16). I know the offset is off by, I believe, 5 mm, but I am concerned about them...

      Check the manufacturers date, if it is before 6/04 then you have pressure switches and if it is after then you do not. Of course, the sure tell way is to drop the pan and see if there are two...

      A lot of good stuff here. Many of which, sad to say has been addressed earlier in the thread. The vast majority of concerns listed here are due to worn valve bores in the valve body. The 09G is...

      Thank you for the heads up with Ream Man! If anyone else has had issues with them, please post. Valve Body Xpress is by far the best source for VB's but you get what you pay for here. I would avoid...

      All of the valve body to case bolts should be torqued to 80 in-lbs. Any sensors that may have been removed should be torqued to 62 in-lbs. If you need the location of the various length bolts let me...

      That is a lot. Too much is not necessarily a bad thing per se, but too little is. Too much begins to be a problem when it gets into to the drivetrain during operation causing the fluid to aerate or...

      This transmission is the 09G or the Aisin Warner TF60SN, with the former most common. What are you asking for when you say 'differential'? Any internal info is going to depend on the trans code which...

      Don't put too much weight in Reamman's suggestion. Anytime the VB is replaced, the adaptive shifts should be reset because even though the internals didn't change the soelnoids and shift valve spring...

      Magarmuch,

      The dealer is mis-informed. This technique does not work or at least I have never had it work for me nor have heard of others' success. He is correct in promoting the reset of the...

      All info on filling the 09G (6-speed, non-DSG) is contained in the post titled "My experience with the 09G". Not all 09G's have the red cap and I would avoid using this method if yours does as the...

      I'm glad to hear that the new VB worked. I am still skeptical that the other was bad via machine work and not just out of adjustment valve adjusters. Either way, it is really trial and error to fine...

      Don't get too frustrated with the 09G! Internally it is robust, but the valve body has some common wear problems from design flaws and the promotion of not changing the transmission fluid. In terms...

      There are some holes here. One, the process you used to "reset" the adapts is incorrect. You need to use a VAGCOM like Ross-tech to reset the adapts which is actually in the "engine" module. If you...

      A few things to note. When did the shift characteristics change? I feel that the wether isn't the only thing that changed. Did it seem to improve after the solenoid change? The fluid change? Or was...
