    Hi everyone, I noticed some play in the timing belt. I replaced it 10.000 miles/ 7 months ago. No codes, no misfire, no timing retard etc. Should I be concerned about it? Thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUDxOe4sg3c&feature=youtu.be

    Wel I managed to snap off two of the fittings one on each solenoid. So I assume I need to replace them. Only problem is I don't know what they are called. And they are too rough for me to get numbers off them. I assume they are with emissions so I must leave them on on my state. Any help is...

    I have a 1998 VW Passat 2.0 Turbo (says 2.0 on decorative cover). So, what I've done: -Had done a compression test that resulted in compression loss in Cylinder #2. -Had the cylinder head sent to a machine shop to be rebuilt (It was machined because the compression was lost. The timing belt did...

    The yellow one is the original, defunct fan, the white labelled one is the possible replacement. A slight variation in the code at the beginning. Is this important? Thanks

    Hello, I just finished my PCV system and think I might as well update my other 130K hoses. I want to replace the suction pump and the hoses that attach to it. I know which suction pump I want for my AWM 1.8T but can't seem to locate info on those hoses. Anyone got the diagram for the 2001.5 AWM...

    The drivers side door on my 2002 626 is really creaky and makes a weird noise when opening and closing. I noticed the metal piece that stops the door from opening too far which the manual calls as the "door checker" is practically disintegrated. Look at the attached photo and the metal that...

    Long time lurker here. All of your posts have helped me tremendously over the years, even if I never commented before. Thanks, much! Anyways, after loving and losing my B5 (2001), I bought a used 2010 B6 early last month. It has 20,000 miles on it and I like it a lot. Heck, after 20 years...

    In attempting to replace the broken clips on my front passenger window, the cable attached to the lock mech. became loose. I have it hooked on to the interior handle, but I can't see where to put the other end. The door opens from the outside, but not the inside. Does anyone know where or how to...

    I just bought a nice 2005 Passat from a friend for my 15 year old. CEL was on and checked them out before purchase. I got codes that suggested checking for a leak and I heard air coming from this round "ball" (check attached photo with ink pen identifying). It was not positioned against the...

    Take a look: What is this and where does it go? -red arrow- <- :P Click to enlarge: It seems to just be dangling. Is it supposed to be attached to something? Seems silly to just have something dangling there. Also I've been looking for a good DIY on lock cable/latch replacement. Having...

    Thinking of Seafoaming my engine after changing out the PCV and leaking gaskets. I've read over all the important threads and seem to have an idea of where to apply the the seafoam, just wanted to confirm it with the gurus/experienced here. Using the fabled Black Apparatus, can I use the...

    Hi, I have a 99 Passat V6 Manual Transmission. Some little things don't work like the dome lights and the keyless remote. Some little glitches but the main car is dependable, which is amazing when you look at these pictures. I've read on here that these Passats are known for water to be on...

    It's been very cold here lately, highs only in the single digits and yesterday I didn't even drive my car. Went to the grocery store, this morning, smelt oil so I popped the hood and saw a good bit of oil by & under the filter. Once I got home, I poked around a bit more and noticed a stream of...

    I am retrofitting B5.5 power seats to replace my current B5 manual leather front seats. I've been searching the forums and cannot seem to find the answer I need. Below is a pic of the current wiring in my manual seat: I believe #1 is for the airbag and #2 is for the heated seat, correct...

    For a prelude to what happened to my car see this thread: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=319511 But pretty much insurance is going to cut me a check and then send me to get it repaired some place. I am attempting to 'break even' with my deductible by cutting some...

    Failed, but not by that much. :thumbdown Anyone have any experience as to what those NO ppm numbers mean? I have a P0420-Catalyst Efficiency Bank 1 Below Threshold as well. So the most likely culprit is the Catalytic Converter? or 02 sensors?:confused:
