try this search in google "Vw 1.8T air filter how to"
Look for Passat, A4 or A6 with 1.8T engine. They all had the same setup.

i own a 99 passat and whenever i press on the gas too hard to take off i get this thumping grinding sound as if i ran over something. im not sure what it is yet but im guessing its gotta be the transmission or engine mounts that need to be replaced

I have a great 2005 v6 Passat - but the heater system is a flop, along with the song and dance you will get from the dealership. My car has been serviced routinely at VW dealerships. It was to have had the coolant changed at 40,000 miles, now its at 75,000 miles and the coolant went bad and has ruined my heater core. The dealership changed the heat flap, then I had it completely flushed elsewhere because the dealer acknowledges there is a a coolant issue but won't stand behind it, nor will the supplier. Your only recourse is a new heater core, at your expense - unbelievably true - and yes this is a ongoing issue and really should have been a recall. We have owned a total of 4 VW over 30 years - all have had heater/coolant issues - to bad the cars ride great but too costly to repair and the company refuses to face the fact that this is a problem. I am so disappointed in the company right now, use to be a big fan but having a hard time keeping or event thinking about buying another VW ...good luck.
