    The whole thing off the water pump. My fan blade was loosing fins, so I took it off, but I can't get the new one back on w/o damaging the radiator. At least I chicken to push hard enough to get it on....



    Thanks!

Usually it takes a bench vise and a pipe wrench to turn the fan off the water pump. Also I think these are reverse threads too. Its tough to break it loose either way. You will need to keep the water pump from turning and gently with increasing force break it loose. sometimes some WD-40 helps too. It does take quite a bit of OMMPF to get it off. I am not sure on your model, but be aware it may be Lefty tighty righty loosey instead of the traditional lefty loosey and righty tighty as well. Also sometimes if you take it to the place where your getting your new parts they will he-man it off for you as well, but they may not want to take the liability. Good luck to you.

SIncerely,

JC

Abs light stays on and i need to know how to do the clutch on a 2oo1 passat a good friend needs vw help we are a front end shop and there are no good shops to fix these things . also has check engine light...


ABS sensor or sensors have failed , cost about $40 each and need to have a reset done on a VW coded laptop.

Quite a big undertaking putting a clutch in a Passat not to be tackled lightly and without workshop facilities

With 172K miles the whole car must be on the edge of the cliff , think you are due to part company with it or dig very deep into your pockets for a fix

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.
