I have had an intermittent fault with the engine cutting out, today the car stranded me for an hour and penny dropped - it is a heat issue because it started again once the engine had cooled.
According to Bentley pin 2 and 3 should read 400-1k ohm and 1 = GND therefore...
I've been looking for days to find a source for the Euro-HID for the B5.5. The 10pin harness units that plug directly into the US spec cars.
I have someone that wants the HID and I do have the W8 but I have to do more wiring to make them work, to the 12pin harness. I couldn't find...
I found the perfect screwdriver for the Dzus fasteners that hold the under-engine tray / heat shield. It's the TOP TRD-45 and I got it from Amazon for around $20. It is a very nice fit and it provides plenty of torque. Much better than using a flat-blade screwdriver or a coin!
I hope this is...

I bought the car 2.5 years ago and I've done pretty much...

Its going to be my daily driver for a fair few years...
CEL came on with P0411 (I think I'm remember correctly) - SAIP incorrect flow or something like that.
Here are the repair steps I took:
1. checked all vac lines.
2. removed air line from SAIP and tried to blow in it while cold - unable to blow air in which means the combi valve was closed...
These are the large, "Big Kahuna" style for the 1.8T engine. They are Mann filters. All Purolator did was slap a white label with their part number on the Mann product (see pic).
The car is long gone, but 4 of these are still taking up space on a back shelf in my garage. They'll be...
Just a heads up. I've had the failure of an crankshaft seal in a timing belt kit from Europaparts.com aka PartsHaus.com on my AEB engine.
Their kits are advertised as follows: "Our team carefully selected and tested every part to ensure the perfect fit and quality. Your satisfaction...

Up for sale are my beloved all-weather mats which treated me good while I cruised around in my Passat.
I'll never forget the one time I went to McDonalds and got an orange soda, and the dumb drive-thru cashier never tightned the lid, but dumber me hadn't noticed. I made a hard left out of the...
Need to get my ABC module rebuilt. I'm either going with ModuleMaster or ATE. Found ATE from their auction on eBay. $40.00 for a rebuild with lifetime warranty.
Who here has dealt with ATE / AutoECU.com / Automotive Scientfic Inc before?
Just some pics of the 2001 Passat B5 Wagon I got for my daughter this spring.
Excellent body condition. 71K miles. Clean interior.
Hood up for preemptive water ingress maintenance.
Ironic, that, given it rained while I was working on it.
Getting to know my way around the engine...
