    Mobile Electronics
    Just bought a used 2013 Passat TDI SEL Premium Plus with I think the RNS 510 system and since we have first driven it the backup camera seems blurry compared to other cars I've been in that have this feature, though not Volkswagens....Is this normal? Is it just worst than most or is there some...

    I enjoyed the forum previously with the user name A&P Wrench but the site now says it is invalid. I'm probably not remembering it quite right. Anyhow it is great to be back among the many knowledgeable Passat fans. This site is the best.

  14. Back pain with Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I bought a 2014 TSI SE and overall really like it. However, one thing I was not able to tell in a test drive was that my lower back will hurt after driving it. My 08 Passat was awesome. On this one it seems as if the lumbar will not retract enough. You can obviously feel it going out. but when...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2008 Passat wagon CCTA TSI. At idle I hear a rattle noise at the back center of the engine (toward the firewall). It sounds like a small ball bearing rattling in a tin can. While lying underneath, the noise seems to be coming from the space between the firewall and the engine block. And...

    You don't have the VAG tool for it? I got the valves and keepers out easily enough by cutting a piece of copper 1" tubing, cutting out a working window in it and then placing a board on top. When I sat on the board it compressed pushed the tubing down and compressed the spring enough to get...

  20. 1.8T. Sludge issue at 70K was repaired by VW. Problem is back at 110k. What now?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Took my 2001.5 1.8T to the shop after the STOP light came on. Mechanic checked the oil pressure and it was really low. So he dropped the pan and called to ask me to come down to his shop. Car now has 110k on it. The pick up screen was clogged. More dismaying was the amount of sludge in the...
