So I'm not really sure how this happened , but the crank sprocket gave and a shard put a whole in the crank flange. I have one ordered from a local dealer ship but it's 250$.

I found a couple passat 1.8t part outs in the area , my question is flange interchangeable through out the 1.8t blocks ? Thanks

Yup, but it needs to be from the same style engine block. What year is your car and the Passat?

Hmm. I have seen the likes of this failure before.

Both were caused by a foreign object (bolt or nut) entering the belt area. *Shivers*

Anyway, it's obvious from the photo that you have a 2001 "AWM" engine, so as long as the Passat is also 2001 or newer, the front cover will work for you.

Is it common for the flange to leak? When I had my car in service position with the lower TB cover removed I noticed I could push on the flange and it would weep out a little oil between the flange and block.

Factory has a crappy paper gasket there, I believe. When I pulled mine off, I just used ultra-grey RTV for the reinstall.
