Does anyo have any tips on removing the engine out of a 2012 passat tdi . Spun a rod bearing and need to rebuild it or replace. Better yet does anyone have step by step instructions?
No! You don't have to drop the subframe unless you need to remove the dpf. Everything can drop out without removing it tho. What happen to it to make u think it needs a rebuild?? The bottom ends are usually bullet proof so I'd say take ur time and inspect everything. The heads suck on these so I'd pop that off and make sure it's not cracked. If a bearing is really spun, it will depend on how bad the crankshaft is to determine if it's worth the time and effort. VW is starting to phase out diesel parts after diesel gate and the push for EV. I found this out the hard way.Ok I have it almost ready to lower out the bottom. I guess I was curious if you have to drop the k frame with it. At this point I’m trying to drop the engine and tran together without the key frame it looks like there will be enough room. Are these engines worth rebuilding, or would I be better off to get a junkyard engine. And are there any high performance rebuild kits available?
If u do, keep the old engine for parts and/or to rebuild slowly over time...parts will be a premium for these things soon!
ok so what’s this car worth fixed and ready to go .? 128k very nice shape .If u do, keep the old engine for parts and/or to rebuild slowly over time...parts will be a premium for these things soon!
ok thanks for your reply. I guess I will pull the engine and see what the pistons and cylinders look like and go from there. Have a good evening!Worth? That's debatable! But current list prices start at $7500 with well over 200K mi. I have a 14 and have seen them listed at over 10K. List price doesn't mean that's what they're getting but we know it isn't too far off!
