    So a few weeks back I had to replace the original headlights for my 04 Passat. The adjusters (as well) as the wiring and internal reflectors were cracked, broken and non repairable. Ordered a pair from 1A-Auto. Good cost, fast shipping and 8 out of 10 in quality. I noticed one of the headlight...

    My 2006 Passat 3.6 4Motion has condensation inside the driver's side headlamp assembly. Also that headlamp has quit working (both high and low beams). Can I just replace the bulb(s) or do I need to replace the entire assembly due to the apparent seal failure? thanks!
