Having problems with your 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion ?
Automotive 2004 V-8 VW Passat Front Wheel Boots
\015 I own a 2004 VW Passat. I purchased it brand new in July of 2004. It has 60,000 miles on it. At 46,000miles during an oil change, it was detected the front driver's side boot on the front wheel drive shaft was split all the way around. I took it to my mechanic and he replace the shaft and boot. I didn't use a VW dealer because the closest one is 60 miles. Recently at an oil change, I detected the same problem on the passengers side. It was replaced by the same mechanic. He told me when I picked the car up, he inspected the one he had replaced back in January at 46,000 miles it was showing signs of cracking and actually split in three places. \015\012\015\012Anythoughts on what might be going on? \015\012\015\012Herb Jordan\015\012Due West, SC\015
Hi,my sugestion is that even if the vw dealer is too far ,just order the original boots from the dealer instead of cheap afthermarket ones, and have your mechanic replace them ,be sure he replace them ,looook under the car to be sure.......good luck......
