  1. B6 Garage
    Hey guys, I am a new member. Bought a 06' B6 passat just 2 weeks ago with 150k miles on it. Its a 2.0t FSI with 6 speed. Last friday I was driving back from work and it just broke down. At first I thought it was the clutch, but then the engine, transmission and the clutch were fine but the axle...

    It's back! After keeping my eyes open endlessly for a clean 4motion wagon, I finally was able to make something happen when I moved to good ol' Texas. If you are on this forum, I am 99% sure you know the man behind it, or at least the car. I've come to find out Paul is quite the legend around...
  3. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hi all, I've read as much as I could on 228mm clutch upgrades/DMF lifespan. There is surprisingly little definitive info out there. So, how about the 6-speed transmission mated to the AVF engine? Has anyone experience a failure of that gearbox? If so, what model year and at what mileage? Was...

    So I need to replace my resonator for sure and very little pipe (if any). Originally I was going to put straight pipes in its place to conserve money as I've already dropped a couple thousand in OEM parts on top of purchase price. However, I'm seeing people recommend using a magnaflow X-pipe...

    NOTE Not mine, just thought I would share this with the rest of the Passat World community. It's a 2003 Passat W8 6-Speed B5.5 Wagon in Red with Black Leather interior. This has to be one of only a few in the entire country. With only less than 100K miles. I can't speak for the condition...

    Have had the car a week. I live on a dirt road and drove through muddy conditions yesterday. Now the ABS light and traction light are on. In addition, there is a sound, seemingly behind the glove box, that sounds like a computer computing busily. Should I try to spray wash the wheels well...

    I would like to know if there is any way to obtain the pin and 7 digit ECM code to change parameters in the 02 - 04 Passat ECM. I could just do everything myself and not have to deal with the dealer. The dealer was not a lot of help when called. The local dealer is not wanting to help to...

    I have finished the mechanical side of a 6-speed swap on a 28k mile 2002 W8 and the car is back on all 4 tires. I am looking for anyone who has correctly removed the tip harness and lined up everything to have the ECM reference the six speed. I would imagine that the 5-speed v6 4-motion or...
