    On my 2015 Passat, Wolfsburg Edition, just recently my screen on my radio changed when backup view is engaged. Before I had a full screen view, but now I have about 3/4 view of whats behind me, and in the screen to the right is a return arrow which takes up the remaining screen. If I hit the...

    I'm trying to fix my daughter lights on a 2001 VW Passat V6 Automatic. The left side backup light stays on in park with the key out and the left arrow on the dashboard stays lit. Also, the left side turn signal does not work. I changed the bulbs and still no luck, could it be a short or the...

    Any body install a backup camera on a B5.5 wagon? There aren't many places to mount it by the license plate lights and hatch handle. I just installed a Kenwood DDX372bt. Very happy with it too!

    Other than putting in some SilverStar bulbs, what can I do to improve the backup/reverse light capability of my Passat TDI? Total light output is low and what light I have is yellow. I live in the country so, I don't have the benefit of street lights or other ambient light sources so, I want...

    Hello-- I have a 2012 SEL Premium, and am considering having this camera installed. I have a VAG-COM cable, and I can "enable" the camera myself. My question is whether I can turn this feature on before I have the installer put the camera in, or if I need to have it all installed before I make...

    My wife has a '12 Passat. One of the things she wishes for the car was NOT available with we bought the vehicle in '12. It appears that the latest models now do offer a backup camera as an option. Anyone know if the new camera kit can be installed in her '12 Passat? I'm guessing it would...

    I'm not 100% positive on this, but on the B5 sedans there was an electric switch that allowed you to release the trunk if the doors were unlocked (right above the license plate on the trunk itself). With the B5.5, that feature was taken away for the sedans (the wagons still had the switch on...

    I'm in the process of pulling out my previous Pioneer AppRadio for a new Double-DIN Pioneer and figured I'd add a backup camera while I have the time and the access. I did a search here and on the 'tex and couldn't find anyone who installed an aftermarket backup camera for their B5/B5.5. Has...

    Hi, I just got a 2013 Passat SE and the rear visibility isn't as good as my old car's, so I'm thinking about getting a backup camera to help me. I know that you can get a little display to sit on your dash, but I'd rather have one integrated through my existing display. Is that even possible...

    Is it possible or should I go with the SEL to have this option from the factory?

    What are my options to install a budget backup camera to Passat SE? It already has an LCD monitor (its resolution is low, but should be enough for the camera). Probably a mirror based screen would be cheaper. What is the estimated camera/screen and labor cost? Thanks!

    Now that the 2013 Passat SEL has backup cameras can I get that same one for for 2012 Passat SEL V6 Premium? When buying my car last spring, this was my only bummer, which almost made me go for the Nissan Altima, my second choice.
