2004 Volkswagen Passat B5.5 1.8L T 2000-2006 GLS: Cracked, broke, leaking oil pan fix

The Volkswagen Passat has an aluminum oil pan that’s easy to damage.

First we drained the oil. Then we cleaned the area with brake cleaner. I sprayed it into the drain plug hole. It wouldn’t stop dripping and I couldn’t flip the car upside down so I used q tips to keep the area inside the pan dry as possible.

The area has to be sanded and very clean.

We used 3M flexible 100 grit sandpaper.
