  1. Can't search for anything

    New Member Introductions
    Why can't I find anything via search? I type in "b6 passat rear cup holder" in an effort to find out how to remove/replace the broken rear seat cup holder and get posts about some '95 VW and everything BUT info on the rear cup holder. When I google the same phrase I get links to passat world...

  3. Anything planned for 2017?

    Events & Gatherings
    Cruise, GTG, etc.? I'd love to meet up with other Passat people. I go to lots of VW events in the summer, but Passats aren't something you see very often.

    I havea 2006 2.0 tdi 6-speed manual 4motion passat, and as i was driving I heard some grinding, and sudden braking, without touching the brakes. Can it be the Haldex? As i checked the e-brake on the vcds and it was reacting just fine (opening and closing). Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

    Is this stub mount correct? Should there be something else in the square hole or was it designed to allow some movement?

  8. 1.8t cranks but doesn't start - looked around and haven't found anything to fix it.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Was driving and the engine quit as if I turned the key off. Let sit for an hour and all it does is crank normal but doesn't fire up. Thought for sure it was the fuel pump and as I went to remove the fuel lines there was pressure there. There is also a strong smell of gas as if it's flooding...
