  2. Original Borg Warner OEM K03 turbo

    Parts For Sale
    The turbo I'm selling from the referenced thread is this one mentioned "The turbo was off an 05 Passat that had 104k on it. I don't know if it was the original turbo or not." It feels solid and has very minimal play. I'd say lass than 1mm sideways and less than 1mm inward/outward. Here's a...
  3. Original Borg Warner OEM K03 turbo

    Parts For Sale
    I'm re-selling the turbo I bought from a fellow member from this thread: click me I bought it expecting I would need to replace the turbo on my dad's car when I was trouble shooting very low boost, but it turned out his CAT was clogged so this is back up for sale. I never even installed it...
  4. Heated seats - troubleshooting

    B5 Information-Base
    I just wanted to say thanks for posting this information. The drivers seat on my MK1 TT was not heating at all. Following your instructions, I tested continuity for the seat elements first (both the seat pad and the seat back) and saw that they were fine, but I had no resistance when I checked...

    How much for the horn shipped to 94560? The horn on my TT sounds like a little Barbie car horn. I miss the horn of the passat.
  6. K04 Turbo rebuilder in CA

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Reviving this thread because I'm suspecting I have an output shaft seal leak on my K04 (from my TT225) because I'm losing oil and can't find a leak anywhere and already replaced my entire PCV system. I'm considering rebuilding my K04 if I can find someone local to balance it, or just having it...
  7. Koni STR.T shocks/struts anyone heard of these? Experience?

    B5 Garage
    Thanks for the info. What is different about the lower mount plate for the front springs? The position or shape or something else? If your B5 springs fit the B5.5 shocks, I'm assuming the opposite would work too, right?
  8. Koni STR.T shocks/struts anyone heard of these? Experience?

    B5 Garage
    I'm looking to get shocks too for my Passat 1.8t. I installed some VW sport springs (same as Eibach pro-kit's I believe) a while back on my stock shocks and it's time to replace the shocks. Is there really a difference between shocks/stuts from a b5 and b5.5? No one seems to list Koni Str.t...
  9. How do I know if I need new control arms

    B5 Garage
    thanks for the reply Zak - just what I was looking for. in checking for movement at the 3:00 and 9:00 position, is it better to lift just the wheel being checked, so the other has resistance to movement to make any play be more obvious? or should I lock the steering wheel? I'll get the front...
  10. How do I know if I need new control arms

    B5 Garage
    My b5.5 has 110k miles and I bought it used with 78k miles from the original owner. The PO had just had both OEM axles replaced with ones from a local parts store unfortunately (autozone or pepboys) when I bought the car from them because of torn boots. Fast forward to today (2 yrs later), I...
  11. Sold my MKV GLI, Got a B5.5 v6 4Motion Variant

    USA - West
    I really liked your PSAT with the Keskins. But I have the same Audi A6 4.2 fat fives on mine as well and love those wheels. Strong, easy to clean and decent weight for a 17x8 (et35) Sick e21 you've got there!
  12. Should I jump on an 04 B5.5 1.8T 5sp 4motion wagon?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So after 2 months of searching through various states for either car, I ended up finding an A4 last Saturday locally. I saw the car on Sunday and took it home. It's an 02 A4 Avant 1.8t with 91k miles, 5speed manual, cold weather package, leatherette heated seats (front and rear), and HID's...
  13. Car check help in Lynnwood WA

    USA - West
    I wasn't planning on buying it sight unseen. I'd only go as far as negotiating a price over the phone, making the trip and buying it if and only if there were no surprises when I personally inspected the car myself. I've done this three times over the years.
  14. Car check help in Lynnwood WA

    USA - West
    Hey all, I'm in NorCal and have been looking to buy either a b5.5 Passat 4mo 1.8t wagon manual or a b6 audi a4 avant 1.8t manual and have been looking as far north as WA and as far south as San Diego. I found an 03 audi a4 avant 1.8t manual at a dealership in Lynnwood priced at $7995 with 103k...
