      Decided to post a final update. While the belt was still intact, it did jump some teeth so the motor is toast. Valves bent on every cylinder. I contemplated rebuilding or buying a wrecking yard...

      Good way to checking timing on FSI? BPY

      Long story short, my water pump seized and it shredded the teeth off my timing belt, all but about 1/4" of one edge. While the OT marks still lined up, I have no compression on any cylinders. New...

      I do. Long story but I have no compression, even though the timing belt was mostly intact and the timing marks are still lined up. I'm not sure what happened yet.

      My water pump catastrophically failed this morning and I lost all my coolant, pretty quickly. Engine automatically shut off when the check coolant light came on. I had it towed home and check the...

      Time keeps jumping ahead an hour

      Problem here that I can't seem to solve. Once a week or so, my clock will jump ahead an hour. When I catch it and change it back, often times it ends up being an hour behind later (like it was...

      I figured it out..so dumb. The hatch was open, and radio won't show a picture as long as it's open!!

      Leaving this thread here for the next idiot.. :P
    7. RCD330G backup camera problem. No picture, and no error

      I recently installed a composite camera on my b6 passat, and used the provided RCA quad-lock adapter provided by the seller, to connect a composite camera. I then went in to VAG-COM and enabled...

      Went back and looked, and they recommend a relay if it's variable voltage; it's not a current issue.

      Either way, it looks fine. Thanks for the help!
    9. Adding a backup camera to my Passat wagon.

      I'm getting ready to add an aftermarket backup camera to my 2008 Wagon and I'm wondering about the power situation in the hatch. Manual (for the camera) says it's activated by the backup lights, but...

      I would say check the cam follow no matter what the milage, if it's an FSI. My '08 B6 had 69k miles when I bought it, and it had already punched completly though the follow and ruined the cam and...

      That's a bit of hyperbole. They are a reliable engine provided you do the maintenance, checking the cam follow often (I do ever 10k), cleaning the carbon buildup and change the timing belt on...

      Jealous as hell! I would love a 4-motion Wagon.

      I have the FWD '08 Wagon. It's great, but I use it for camping, caving and off-road driving so much that I would be better off with something...

      Do the buttons on the right side do anything? The buttons on the left worked for me on my '08 Passat from the get-go. Didn't need an adapter at all!
    15. Dumb question - Removing 12-pin blue connector from quad-lock radio harness?

      I switched from a premium 7 to an rcd330 and I need to remove the aux connector from the quad-lock, so I can insert a backup camera cable. I can't figure how to get it out of the quad lock?

      I just installed a 187B Desay model in my 2008 Passat. Everything was plug and play (I have no backup camera) and the left buttons on my steering wheel work. Couple questions:

      Grab a UV oil dye kit from amazon or a local auto parts place. Best way I've seen to track down those annoying oil leaks.

      As I said earlier, I have the steering wheel with eight round buttons. What do the buttons on the left do? The star, and the phone button, that is? I assume the phone does phone, does the star...

      Gotcha, didn’t know what it was for.

      I have a K model canbus gateway, so I don’t think I need to worry about battery drain.
