Re: Press for bottom ball joint

It comes out without to much trouble (remove the clip) ..I used a 50 mm socket to fit the new ones, pay attention to which way up it goes! I left the rubber on and the socket fitted over.

Re: fuel tank stuff

Did all this on my van very recently and left the engine in...box off was enough space and means it's a one man job and no cranes etc used...worst job on syncro ever and budget a set of brake pipes ..also consider seat belt mounts while your there...

Re: Recommended panels ?

Vw classic are re making rear arches are they not? Brickwerks have/had those and they looked very good...schofeelers stuff is improving , klokkerholm is quite poor generally and the front arches are literally hilarious !

Re: Transmission oil change, which oils

I'm sure I recall a video for the then new Passat stating that G50 was a new oil developed specific for the 02A transmissions....that would be 1990.. anyway if it meets the spec it's ok...I'm currently using smith and Allen oils but can't recall which one is in which box...I have tried several oils ...
