    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    B5.5 2.8. I changed all the pulleys and belts less than 2 years ago and it's only been driven like 10k miles or less. Could this be a bad bearing in the aux fan? All other tensioners and pulleys were changed except the alternator's but the sound is too high. It feels like it's right under the...

  6. Aux input conundrum

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm trying to hook up a headphone jack output to play audio from my smartphone to the Monsoon stereo in my 2002 W8. But we all know this audio system doesn't have a place for aux inputs. Curiously, there is an old iPod docking cable in the center console, so I figured all I would need is a...

  8. HVAC blower not working, Aux fan runs continuously (2009 Passat 2.0T TSI CCTA)

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi, everyone - 2009 Passat 2.0T TSI (CCTA) Briefly, the A/C suction hose was pressed into the auxiliary fan (smaller of the two) which in turn sliced a gash in the flexible section causing all of the refrigerant to leak out. This caused the auxiliary fan to continuously run even when the engine...

I know something of electronics and it seems like a piece that could be inexpensively repaired, and perhaps improved; they seem to be failure points. Mark S. 2003 Passat v6...

Just use the Monsoon Radio as if you were playing a CD, but the signal actually comes from the music device...
