    I recently bought a 2003 B5 with the 2.8L V6 72K miles. The owner was having transmission shifting issues. He bought it at an auction and drove it for a while then it quit shifting correctly. Example it would not shift down into lower gears when slowing and sometimes stay in 3rd or 4th when...

    05 Passat 1.8t 5AT 4Motion wagon 127k. I've never owned an automatic, so I'm not sure if this behavior is normal. When I have the car in TIP mode in 4th gear and hit the gas, the RPMs jump by about 200, then the car accelerates normally. In 5th gear the RPMs jump by about 100 and then the car...

    I have a pair of OEM axles out of a B5.5 Passat. These will work on any B5.5 automatic drivetrain. The boots are good but would recommend installing new outer boots and swap out the outer joints (left-right, right-left) for a brand new feel. Asking $70.00 plus shipping for the pair. Located...

    I had this posted under new introductions but was getting no responses. I've been beating my head against the wall :banghead: trying to find the reverse switch on my 98 (B5) 1.8T with FWD automatic. I've looked in ALLDATA and it says left side of the transmission right above the left drive...

    Hi all! So, I've been shown the final missing link to my 'tailgate unlocked with all doors / tailgate operation via remote' coding mod: A pair of springs that install on the tailgate gas springs, which will (effectively) give you a power-lift tailgate. Pretty cool, eh? The product...

    I've got a 2005 1.8T. During routine inspection of the disk brake pads, I saw on the left side that a connector was half way out of its socket as it seems that a stone damaged it. I pulled it apart, cleaned the male and female connectors, push it slowly together and taped it up to prevent...

    Transmission stopped working wouldn't move in any gear. Replaced tranny with same type, with lower miles. After install, leveled car and put proper amount of fluid in tranny. Took it for a spin and about a mile into it, it acted like it went into neutral and wouldn't move in any gear. All gear...

    The ignition key has been getting more difficult to turn when the steering wheel is locked. I must pull on the steering wheel quite a bit and then the key turns nicely. If I shut the car off with the steering wheel unlocked, the key turns fine. This makes me believe that the ignition key...

    Recently bought an 04' 4 motion with 79,000 original miles. It took a light hit to the front resulting in the front clip being wiped out. Most of the damage is superficial and easy to repair. Anyway, the car came to me already apart, and i have since reassembled everything except sheet metal...

    The transmission had lots of problem during the cold winter time, mostly started in the limp state in the morning, sometime went into the limp state when switching to the reverse gear, sometimes it even caused the check engine light to lit up, but all these went away now that the temperature is...

    I'm having the following transmission issue I can't figure out. First off, I don't know the history of the car, I bought it disassembled cheap from a guy who started to try to do a timing belt job on it and quit. The car shifts from park to reverse to neutral to drive just fine. On the...

    Okay noticed today my automatic is leaking. Not from the pan or other seals but seems to be coming from the electrical plug area. I am on the road for work, so can't get a real good look but is there a gasket or seal that could be bad around that plug? Is it under pressure if so, or could I...

    Was there any B5.5 version of our Passat with automatic headlights? My 2004 GLX has 2 position switch: ON and OFF only. Got excited when I found a similar looking switch in Audi A6 on a local junkyard and got it thinking it 3-positions is what I need but it did not fit my car at all. Was...

    Hi, I have a 2003 1.9TDI Passat with the 5-speed tiptronic auto gearbox. The car has covered 180,000 miles. When cold the auto gearbox and the tiptronic are failing to change gear. The problem corrects itself after about 20 minutes of driving. There are no unusual noises coming from the...
