Technical Information:
In Blauparts' own service facility, we've repaired many different types of Vw Passat transmission leaks. The most common being a Vw Passat tailshaft flange seal leak. This is often due to the high temperatures created by the catalytic converters, which are located directly bellow the tailshaft flange seal area. Extreme cold-to-hot temperature fluctuations can also attribute to the tailshaft flange seal becoming hard and brittle. Over time (typically around 70,000 miles), the tailshaft seal commonly begins to leak due to it's inability to properly seal. Unchecked, the Torsen differential (which is directly responsible for the 4Motion system) can eventually be depleted of critical gear lubrication. Thus, an unfixed tailshaft flange leak can impact the reliability and longevity of the 4Motion system and lead to very costly transmission problems or failure in the future.
