Joe,

 

The passats are notorious for this concern. Unfortunatly there is no real fix. Its is just the load from the trans when in drive or reverse with the foot brake on. This is somewhat of normal operation.

 

If this advise has been helpful, please accept.

 

Thank you

customer stated this is new ,I understand there would be some vibration but not like this . Dealer had vech and suggested removal and tear down of trans is something worn or damaged in trans that causes this ? Thank you Joe

Joe,

There arent really any issues with the Passat trans. I would doubt this has anything do with the customer concern. Its not unheard of, but unlikely. Do you have any faults in the trans control module or ECM? A vacuum leak or lean fuel trim faults could cause this aswell.

Mike

thank you for your help. Believe it or not replacing the axles solved the problem. The inner joint must have been translating engine vibration to steering wheel when brake was applied. Maybe this info will help someone else. Appreciate all you did. Thanks
