    EYF Auto transmission is this rust ?! Passat B5.5 Or freaking out unnecessary?!

    Hi guys,

    Was under the car today when refitting my bumper after headlight exchange ..

    Came across the auto transmission box,

    I see some rusty bits, inside, next to the EYF gearbox stamp/plate.. I'd upload photos but can't see where to click?!

    anyone confirm this is just normal and I shouldn't worry ? Sump seems fine.

    Cheers !

    If it is made of steel you will find it difficult to spot parts that are not rusty at that age. Use Flika to post pics.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    You can add picture to a thread as an attachment providing they aren't to big. There are plenty of free picture sites you cab Google. I now use http://tinypic.com/ since Photobucket started charging to post on third party sites.

    The rusty bit is the torque converter with the starter motor ring gear, these are made of steel and left raw as them having surface rust does not matter.

    The APR claim is 215HP for the map, I think the filter and exhaust MAY add 1 or 2.

    When you use tinypic and add pictures there is textbox bottom left with a link to add IMG code instead of URL codes.
