Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion
It isnt that hard actually
disconect positive battery terminal. and feel the tension on the laternator belt. you will need to bring it back to this tension.
1.) loosen bolts holding alternator in place (LOOK AT THE BELT TO REMEMBER HOW IT GOES, BEST NOT REMOVE THE BELT.)
2.) loosen bolts holding wires to alternator and connect wires to new alternator
3.) Place alternator in engine, replace bolts but dont tighten
4.) put belt in place, it will be slack, use your tire iron or a piece of pipe or wood to pry the alternator back, to bring tension on the belt. You pry the alternator to pull the belt as TIGHT AS POSSIBLE. while holding strain, on it, tighten the bolts.

SOURCE: How to replace ABS Sensor
They're a pain because they press into the hub. Some of them have a retaining bolt, others don't. The problem is that heat in the hub, from rolling friction in the wheel bearing and brake system heat transfer causes them to seize in place. The only way I've been able to remove them is to remove the end axle bolt that holds the axle in place, pivot the upright to gain access to the inside of the upright from behind, and tap the sensor out. You have to be careful not to damage it, and it helps a lot to spray some PB Blaster or penetrating oil in there to help loosen things up. If you try to pry or lever it out from the wire end of the sensor, you WILL destroy it.

80 000miles(120 000km) is recomended by the dealer but it's safer at 40 000miles(60 000km) its safer for town driving and cold conditions considering the diffirence between a cambelt change and a replacemnet engine and downtime.
