    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Recently when pulling onto the highway i heard a loud purge. Crawled under the pass side front bumper and find that the large hose going to my DV has dislodged. Plugged it back in and when pulling away pops off again. After installing some zip ties it has been good to go, except for the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I noticed when replacing my brakes the other day that the CV boots are ripped. I started looking into what needs to be fixed/repaired/replaced. I found on blauparts than I can replace just the boots and just the joints. I found at autozone that i can get the WHOLE shaft. What is recommended...

    Returned to the shop just now. Spoke with the tech who did the repair/install. We walked through each step and discovered that the ac clutch power wire somehow got dislodged.

  9. AC help

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I checked relay 384. I am not getting battery voltage to pin 9. This leads me to believe its the pressure switch or low on freon. I'll be getting some freon and a new pressure switch tomorrow unless someone can offer some other suggestion.

  12. AC help

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    About a year ago my accessory fan died. This was confirmed by putting direct power to the fan motor with no results. Anyways....the AC would blow cold as long as the vehicle was in motion, I assume this is from air passing over the condensor from the car moving. Over the weekend I developed an...
