    Everytime I turn on my car (2001 passat GLS), a loud beep happens that indicates to check the engine and airbag light beeps as well, where can I go to unplug or mute the noise so it just shows an alert on the dashboard? The beeps are very loud

    Greetings fellow Passat wrenchers, this would be my first thread and I'm appreciative for your help and insight. I know this is a longer post, but it is very thinking and planning intensive, and so maybe interesting to you as well. Yesterday was my 1 year anniversary with my 2004 Passat v6 30V...

    Checked the software version and found it falls within the versions affected by the strict 02 sensor settings. Already called a stealership and they said it would be an hour's labour to do the reflash( :wrench: ), is it possible to just disable this alert through vcds as I do not need emissions...

    I'm due for a change in the next few weeks, so I picked up one of the filters I regularly use for AWM oil changes: The Purolator L30257. Puro is a well-known brand, made in the USA, and seems to have a pretty decent reputation. I took it out of the box to look it over and noticed a black...

    I own a 99 passat 1.8t, and I would like to know if it's possible that I damaged something around my rear brake/hub. I have put some spacer on the rear of the passat with longer bolt ( i guess too long) and while I was testing the car, the abs and parking brake logo appeared in my cluster. Now...
