Long thread on my project on this site. Runs great. No CELs, no ABS errors and no warning lights. Heat and AC...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi All. Update on Passat ABS headaches. I bought a used ABS module from eBay, and it works great. No ABS lights, and all operates perfectly. Installed new flex pipe, replaced driver's axle, changed oil and filter. Car is running better than new. I may have to sell it in the coming month, as...

    Hi All, Passat is running great. No CELs, and finally got a replacement ABS module to clear up the errors. Might have to sell the Passat wagon as daughter is getting a new Q3, so we are shifting cars around. Will be taking her 2015 Jetta SE that we bought new. Figured it is best to keep the...

    I checked the Camshaft Position Sensor and the round thin metal actuator, and both looked great. I cleaned off the sensor on the CPS, checked timing and all looked good. The crankshaft was advanced an 1/8th of an inch, but I don't think it is enough to warrant one tooth change on the timing...

    Thanks VAGguy and AndreasPassat. I finally found the time to do the 1. Flex Pipe, 2. Driver's axle, 3. O2 sensor furthest back, 4. Oil Service. The flex pipe was a nightmare, and I have done that once already. All bolts were rusted (I am in WI) and needed to be cut off with angle grinder...

    Thanks VAGguy! I received all the parts for the exhaust flex pipe replacement. I did this 4 years ago- I remember trying to squeeze the catalytic converter down through the engine area. Should I unbolt the pipe in the middle of the wagon, and also unbolt from the cat, then pull UP through engine...

    Finally had time last night to remove the original ABS module and install the module I bought on eBay. I paid $50 for it, and it arrived in a thin plastic envelope with no packing material surrounding it. It was not physically banged up, but I figured the electronics were banged up from...

    Hi Scott. Thank you for your post. I just bought another Bosch 5.7 electronic module on eBay for $50 with the same part number I have (0265950081). I can now remove and replace the ABS electronic module in 1 hour or less. So we will see. I will post updates this weekend. Hopefully it is not an...

    Hi All. I have a 2003 Passat wagon 1.8T, FWD, Manual transmission with ABS errors on the dash. Also, the traction control light is illuminated. I used VCDS-Lite to see the fault codes: 01435 Brake Pressure Sensor 1 (G201), 48-10 Supply Voltage - Intermittent. I have had a number of issues with...

    Hi AndreasPassat- how is life in AZ? We miss you in WI- although we had a 90 degree day yesterday and that is toasty for Sept in WI! (I know- not much sympathy from you AZ folks). My apologies to OP for hopping on here, but I think it is relevant. I have a 2003 Passat wagon 1.8T AWM and am...

    Just installed two new OEM Hella headlights from Rock Auto. $100 each and they were pretty easy to install (relative to the timing belt and cylinder head project above!). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. wheel/brake seizure problem

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Zack, you likely have a seized piston on your rear caliper. I would order a new caliper from Rock Auto, or where you prefer, and replace both the rears at the same time. It is not too bad of a job. You might have a caliper with the emergency brake lever on the side that connects to the e-brake...
  14. another ABS victim?

    B5 Garage
    BMB, I just finished with a similar saga. ABS and brake lights on my 2003 Passat wagon 1.8T FWD. Removed the ABS module (black plastic electronic part only) and sent to CheapABS in Kansas. Got it back and it has a different issue, so sent it back yesterday. Matt, the owner of CheapABS has been...
  15. My '03 Passat Wagon Blue (after top end engine rebuild) PICS

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks, In another long thread, I document the process to repair my AWM engine after a timing belt tensioner mishap. All is good now, with about 500 miles on the rebuild. 1.8T is running better than ever. It feels quieter, stronger and smoother after the valve job. I've received a few PMs to...
  16. 2003 Passat 1.8T 180XXX miles. What maintenance should i take care of?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Don, I would add: Camshaft Chain Tensioner and gasket to the list. If you don't know when the timing belt was done, as others have stated, you are on borrowed time. I had issues with a failed timing belt tensioner that caused a number of problems, the least of which was a handful of valves...

    Now we have 350 miles on the Passat since the top end rebuild. All is great, and no CELs. Car is running so well and it is more comfortable than any of my other cars right now! Not sure how this fits in to the story--- I reviewed my receipts, as I have all receipts since the car was new. I had...

    Hi All-- update after 100 miles. The Passat is running great! Prior to these 100 miles, I had an issue with a P0340 code, so last Sunday, I pulled the car into Service Position again, and confirmed timing. It was perfect. I found that the wheel on the end of the camshaft (is it an actuator?) was...

    Today is a great day. I spent last night and this morning getting all the hoses reconnected, and checking over my work. No issues. Started up the car and no oil leaks! Sounds great. Will get front end re-installed and wrap up this project today. Thanks for all the help guys! I could not have...
