  1. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hi all, I am a new TDI owner. Got my 2005 passat with 82k last week. So far it has been running well until today. I was driving to the dog park and the car started to act weird. First off, it was starting a little hard. Next, it was struggling to make any power and didnt want to shift. I had to...

    Has anybody thought about switching from an airbox to a pod filter? (Not sure of the terminology, I think that's what they're called.) If so, what size do you think would fit?

    Hi all, I have looked for this DIY with pics and the thread is so old the pics don't work. I made my own design based on the description in the other writeup, using a single larger duct rather than two small ones. It will have a slight ram-air effect because I'm adding a scoop collector to the...

    2004 AWM Passat GL I took out my airbox to clean out the screen, clean the MAF sensor, and change the air filter. I noticed when I was cleaning the bottom of the airbox that the flapper wasn't staying shut. Closer inspection revealed that the tension spring on the flapper was broken. I...

    When my car is idling I can hear a clicking comming from the passenger side of the engine bay. I narrowed it down to a pump on top of the airbox directly under the airbox cover. I never noticed the clicking before is it normal. I searched other threads on this and it said that it's normal to...

    All of which came off a 04 AWM 1.8t 5spd wagon with 100K miles on it. I upgraded to FT a while ago and planned on keeping the original stuff should the new parts fail, but there's no point in going back to stock given my modifications so these parts are sitting in the garage catching dust. I'll...

    I am taking off my open air filter and re-installing my air box to diagnose MAF problems and I see the heatsink on top of the airbox. A quick search showed me that it was for the ICM. Problem is I cannot find the ICM or even wires for it. After searching more I see that ATWs are not supposed...

    Does anyone know where to find replacement hose clamps for the flexible hose between the airbox and the engine? The OEM clamps are more narrow than I can find around here and the screw mechanisms are starting to give up after 10 years of off and on.

    Worried the 4 screws on the heat shield are going to strip, I asked stealership if they have replacements (I need to access the back 2 clips)...parts guy at Boardwalk VW in Richardson says he always takes out the whole airbox instead of removing shield. He proceeded to a B5.5 one of the techs...
