    99 GLS. Ok, so key fob has been working fine, no intermittent behavior, or more limited range. Walked out today, pressed unlock, and nothing. I can manually unlock all the doors, and arm/disarm the alarm, so that's good (and seems to indicate the CCM is functioning properly). So, after some...

    This deserved a separate thread because AndreasPassat and I are discussing an issue that is puzzling. He's convinced that there are two orings, and I only have one. I have one on the old one I removed, and only one came with the new one I'm about to install. It mounts on the outside of the...

    First of all, I searched and found this issue in the base. Pulled the controls, found the switch to be bad. Epoxy fixed it, then reinstalled. No fan, no a/c button, everything else works. Thought to myself "myself, you screwed that up." Then I bought a new control set. I installed that today...

    So today I started to replace the vacuum lines on the car. Got to the one that goes from the intake manifold and across the front of the engine. Took off the hockey puck PCV valve for access and I still could not find where this vac line ends up. It looks as though it might be accessible by...

    Yesterday I replaced the coolant flange on the back of the cylinder head because of a seal leak, what a PITA! While doing this and leaning on the engine and cursing the German engineers, I broke off the plastic tabs on both sides of the front coil pack connector. I have searched all over the...

Regularly gets me 48+ MPG, with a current record of 51.4 MPG on a trip back to central KY from Pittsburgh. Two days ago I found this 1999 Passat with...

    Hello everyone, Can someone help me find the right MAF for my '99 Passat V6 2.8L AHA (99.9% confident it's AHA engine)? I have tried multiple sources and I believe that the part number is 078133471C. However, I cannot decide whether I want to go with VDO (Siemens) or Hitachi. Bosch does not...

    So, like many of you, I followed taligentx's instructions on the circuit board repair for the door lock mechanism (with bad solder joint). It's been a while. I have a 99 Passat. My friend thinks he's having the same problem, on his 2002. Did this defect/failure also plague the 2002?
