    Hi, trying to help my daughter's boyfriend with an issue. Not familiar with Euro cars, although I have wrenched on many American and Japanese over the years... Anyway, the complaint is the headlights are too dim. I checked the low beam H7 bulbs, OK... I get around 12V on the connector, which...

    It seems that that a lot of the washer fluid ends up on top the car roof rather that all on the windshield. Owners manual mentions that some special vw tool is required to service them. Is there a DIY to do this at home? Also, I am not sure if I have heated wiper jets or not, but I did have a...

    I've been on the hunt for the proper procendure for aiming the fog lights on the b5.5. I've done generic searches and haven't found consistent information. Anyone have a way to aim/align the fog lights?

    Hi, since I bought my passat the driver side headlight has been off aim (aims too high and cannot be seen on the road). I tried adjusting using the adjustment points, and no go. Recently I ordered new lights and had to drop the bumper to replace them. Also they are HID type headlights. So i got...

    The rear washer shoots straight up in the air. None gets on the window. How do I adjust the aim?

    I got my OE fog lights wired up finally... they're OE projectors via an ECS kit. When I turn them on, they're essentially pointed down at the road. I assume they're aimable... anyone know how to aim them properly? TIA

    Ok, I finally installed the Phillips Vision Plus bulbs I ordered this summer earlier this week (along with some All Weather's in the high beams) and now the driver's side beams seem all messed up - the low beam is higher than the high beam and higher than the passenger's side. I've checked the...

    Hey guys, I just installed the Hella HID housing for a 98 Passat and the beams are all too low. How do I level these things? The lights have a leveling I need to fire that up? If so, any idea where I can get a switch for it? I'm bringing my car in Friday for service at an...

    I'm currently working on a set of kickpanels in my passat, but I'm having the hardest time aiming the drivers. The drivers are a home-made Vifa component set with 6.5"midbass and a 1" tweeter. The crossover is set at 2kHz and is a 6dB/octave series crossover. The mid can play high and the...
