  2. '02 4Mo GLX Wagon, Front ABS/WSS "depth"

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Can anyone tell me how far away from the ring the sensor is supposed to sit? or how much space there should be (exposed silver part)? I had swapped the ABS/WSS and now I have the ABS kick on at the very end of braking......which from what anyone has told me has to do with the sensor being too...

  5. 2002 GLX 4Mo Wagon Fuel Pump Location

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Car turns over but won't start after running fine the day before, so I figured the 1st thing I'd check is that the fuel pump is getting power. Except I'm not seeing what I see in every YouTube video and other posts on this forum. There should be an access cover for it behind the passenger side...

  7. I Need a manual 4Mo transmission for an '04. Can I source an Audi tranny?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm hoping someone who knows these cars better than I do can help me. I've got a an '04 B5.5 4Motion sedan with a manual transmission, 120k miles, and there's a rotational noise that was recently diagnosed at the shop as likely coming from a bad bearing in the transmission. It's not really...

  9. WTB: 4mo suspension

    WTB/WTT Section
    Basically just need something to get the car rolling again. I would prefer coilovers but that’s a long shot. If someone has stock 4mo suspension I’d be happy to take it at this point, kinda in a hurry to get this thing off jack stands as I have to move it. I would prefer full struts with the...
  10. Replaced Front Pads. No pressure afterwards. 2004 V6 4mo

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey All. My daughter got her license earlier this week so I'm getting my old passat ready for her. (2004 V6 4motion) Yesterday was 4 new tires and today was going to be new pads. Been doing my own brakes for 30 years and never ran into this. (first time doing a VW though) The brakes were...
  11. 02 v6 4mo broken coil spring - suggestions?

    B5 Garage
    HI, as stated, I have a 02 v6 4mo with broken coil springs on the front drivers side. Dealership quoted me a laughable price for all new strut assembly which is obviously out of the question as the car has over 170k on the clock. I see that gabriel and osc both sell complete strut...
  12. 2002 Passat GLX 4Mo Wagon- Places to find ignition active wires

    B5 Garage
    I will be adding a second battery with a relay isolator. I'd like to know of the locations of lines that are active only when the engine is on (not just accessory). It seems the norm is to put the relay isolator in the engine bay, so I'm guessing I'll have to tap into something in the fuse box...

    Hey, I somehow lost track of my old user account. So I signed up for a new one. I have owned my Passat since 2006. I bought it with 32k miles and it now has 140k more. I have always loved the car as it checks all the boxes for me.
  15. 2003 2.8 4mo Wagon

    New Member Introductions
    I just picked up an 03 2.8 4mo wagon with a shade over 61,000 miles last week for $2400. No issues so far other than a code for the bank 1 O2 sensor, which I'm assuming, based on a few threads, is a small exhaust leak or something; nothing major. It's bone stock and needs some loving, so...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've read several posts about B5s and Sedans, but after searching extensively I still can't get a good handle on how to remove the rear seat bench cushions from a B5.5 (2005) GLX 4mo WAGON.
  18. 4mo rear suspension strut 'hats'

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Quick question for those that have done the rear struts on the 4motion. I've re-assembled my first strut, but the 'hat' is sitting a bit cock-eye'd. Is that normal? Or is the hat tweaked? I can't remember what it looked like when i took it out of the car. :/ You can really tell when you...

  20. 4mo placement compatibility

    B5 Garage
    Hi all! My buddy is buying a 2004 passat 4mo auto. The tranny is supposedly bad. There are several tranny codes for the 4mo. Can any of these from any b5.5 be swapped in? Can i swap just the tranny or also the TCM? If i also swap the TCM, does that mean i can put any b5.5 4mo? Thanx for...
