    A/C not "that" cold anymore. Bad expansion valve? Pressure readings/diagnose issues! Guys, The weather down here in a JOKE, it's something like 40ºC by midday (105 ºF). Only now I'm realizing how weak my A/C system performs, I can't get that nice iceberg breeze from the vents as before, only a...

    My VAG-COM won't connect to my 2001 Passat 1.8T. It was working just fine. I went to connect it up to figure out why I all of a sudden I had an Air Bag light come on and I can't read anything. I have not had any other issues or dash error lights come on until yesterday. I got in the car in...

I guess with vw everything doubles in price than the...

    Hey guys, I have a passat b5,5 2004 v6 and its been actually a few months now that my parking/hand brake doesn't work anymore at all. I can pull it all the way to the top and nothing happens.

    The V6 overheated today going 10mph on a busy freeway (uphill) by 100degrees with the air conditioning on (wifey was driving). All of a sudden a coolant smell came into the cabin and 2 minutes later the dreaded "STOP" popped up on the instrument cluster. She immediately pulled over, stopped the...

    Yes I know I'm a dumbass for installing a CAI on my v6, now I totally regret it but anyway. When I had the intake and I tried to plug in the MAF sensor the car would turn off automatically. Just earlier I put back my stock air box and the car still turns off if I plug the MAF sensor. Will...

    So your key is dead and it won't work anymore. You've replaced the batteries and still no go. the key is dead. I found a very simple solution to my problem. I went to the junkyard and picked up a key from another vehicle with the built in FOB. I also grabbed the comfort and convenience...

    I bought a 2001 Passat w/ 1.8 turbo that was not running - Thanks to this forum, I found that the comfort control module was full of water - I cleared the plugged firewall drain holes under the hood and replaced the CCM with a used unit from Ebay. Runs great, but now the power door locks and...

    Have had to take my drivers side door panel off several times for different reasons. Now the plastic clips are almost all broken so nothing is really holding my door panel against the door itself so it just vibrates and i cant take it anymore. Someone must have had this problem before, IM HOPING...

    The B5 wagon is a bit long in the tooth (plus the daughter wants it), but I still like the size of the wagon. Did a search on Edmunds for "station wagons", some of the crap that gets counted as a wagon includes the HHR, the Soul and the Mini Cooper Countryman! Jesus! Anyway, unless I want an...

    hello guys, i was just wondering if how can i tell if my turbo is no longer working on a 2002 VW passat 1.8 (automatic). The reason I ask is because I notice that when I step on the gas (while driving) it makes this loud sound like if it was one of those racing cars that has those mufflers that...

VW insisted I get a...

    I've got a big question for this. I've got an chipped ECU that the guy selling it can't find his SKC. He's parting out the car and can't find the key. We're giving it a shot to see if I can program it for another Passat. Problem is that I have the info from the original ECU and cluster...

    Well, I have PES hardware, that used GIAC software. I didn't know this, but apparently, GIAC doesn't support PES hardware anymore. Probably old news to most, but just a heads up in case anyone had any of their FI kits.
