  1. Front pad and rotor replacement problem

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    You have to push the piston all the way in, to me it sounds like the piston is not all the way in. Try opening the brake fluid canister top and let pressure out while pushing the piston back in. You might need a bigger stronger c-clamp. I use a big channel lock and the old pad to push my piston...
  2. Why is the interior plastic so sticky?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Lol I have heard. But I really like keeping my car clean and as close to original as possible, doing plasti-dip cause of how durable it is and it looks stock on the plastics. I will be posting pics when it's done.

  7. W8 US Spec Headlamps

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Big differences the W8 headlight is made to automatically adjust when the car turns on also when it is loaded(the car) the headlights adjust. This means they actually move having a motor in the unit. That is why it has a bit more pins than your stock headlight. plus it has a small bulb inside...
  8. W8 screwed me!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
