  1. 03 V6 automatic ABS light

    B5 Garage
    ATQ is the V6 engine for 2000-2005 so that's your engine. Connectors may have a number on the edge like 1 18 or whatever so you get some idea of where everything is even if each pin isn't individually numbered.That particular connector I don't know though. It looks like pin 1 is brown ground...

  4. HELP: Brakes Squeaking After Lubrication

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have always lubricated the "ears" of the brakes. Like the two little tabs and the rail they ride on. I use moly grease. It solved a squeak problem with my old civic once and I've been doing it ever since.
  5. Methods for breaking tire beads? Changing valve stems, etc.

    B5 Garage
    This Sunday I took advantage of the wonderful weather here (it was 60s in January in southern New York, what?!) to change a leaky valve stem. I thought it would be easy but I found it hard to break the tire bead. I bought a $17 tire bead breaker iron from HF and fit the swan neck under the rim...
  6. Edit posts is broken (or maybe not?)

    Community Help
    I'm trying to edit some of my old threads to attach images because of the 3rd party images broken issue, since none of my posts are showing my images. When I click 'Edit' on any post it says "You may not edit more than 10 different post(s) within 7 days". I really don't think I've edited 10...
  7. Intermittent Heat, Core flushed, system bled, is it my water pump?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    What bolts on the heater hose? Combi and intake manifold bolts are all 7 ft-lbs. That's light you'd need an in-lbs wrench at 84 in-lbs if you want to be exact. Pics below are all from ATQ section (V6 engine from 00-05). Interesting that for my engine AWM (V4 engine from 01-05) I can't find an...
  8. Visor won't stay up

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Darn! Thanks for letting me know.
  9. Visor won't stay up

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    A new one from anywhere including ecs is on average 3x the price of a used one. I'm going with a used one if there's no way to repair the one I have now.
  10. Visor won't stay up

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The driver's side visor in my 2003 1.8T won't stay up. The spring or whatever is inside it is completely broken, there's no friction and it just hangs down. I did some searching and all the threads I found for visors were for the homelink model and electrical issues. Has anyone else's visor...
  11. I hate this new forum software

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Since new years a new 3-dot menu button has appeared in the message header so I've adjusted for it. Before: After: As a result of this change to make the header thin again the reply/quote/etc buttons now appear slightly upward in some posts. I've experimented with various CSS but I can't...

    Ok. All my images are safe for work :)
  13. Moderate Images button

    Community Help
    Hi and Happy New Year. There's a 'Moderate Images' button in all the posts now and when I click it it says image safety updated? What is it for? It shows regardless of whether or not I'm logged in.
  14. Overheating and stuff

    B5 Garage
    Boydage with a W8 recently said that he pressure tested his coolant system and discovered it wouldn't hold pressure, and that was the cause of his heater blowing cold. In his case the o-ring on the cap was bad, but in general the cap could be bad. The coolant kits I think replace the cap for the...
  15. Overheating and stuff

    B5 Garage
    Do you hear any weird noises? I think when oil pumps start to fail they make noise. Speaking of that do you have any camshaft codes? Do you hear any loud rattling from the back of the engine? http://passatb5.wikidot.com/1-8t-cam-chain-tensioner-replacement I've attached the AWM oil diagrams. I...
  16. Rear brake caliper banjo bolt, ribbed bolt, socket bolt questions

    B5 Garage
    My left rear caliper, Raybestos FRC11076, went bad after 5 months. There was a leak at the piston. I bought a replacement caliper w/bracket from Advance Auto Parts. It is a Wearever 19-B2109 which is probably a reman by Cardone. The leak was bad and I needed to change it right away so once again...
  17. 14 Minute Mystery

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If it's predictable maybe you could monitor the voltage? Is it possible the alternator can't keep up?
  18. B5.5 Wagon water leak in the "D" column

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    What specific tool and rivnut did you use? In case I have to do this someday.
  19. Brakes

    B5 Garage
    Some Passats (and I'm pretty sure yours) have a brake booster that works off the PCV system. I don't know if that could be the issue but you do have PCV problems so maybe it would be best to take care of that first? Here are pics from the manual: Though they don't say so in the manual...
  20. Overheating and stuff

    B5 Garage
    Replacing the heater core is a big job, IIRC you'll need a second person to help disconnect the dash and pull it out. I've seen it done on youtube but never personally. Before you do that I'd just like to remind you of what I mentioned earlier: I flushed my heater core with air and water, and I...
