  1. What's behind the radio & climate control? 2007 Passat Wagon stereo project

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey guys! First actual post here on the forum. Spent a half hour or so searching for threads covering this and couldn't find anything relevant. If I searched poorly and someone has covered this, my sincere apologies. I'm looking to install one of these to my factory radio: It's got USB and...
  2. Slightly hit from behind in bumper, have questions.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I was slightly hit from behind while waiting at a stop sign. The lady driving behind me left her foot off her break and hit me at less than 5MPH. I felt the impact and thinking there was gonna be damage. I couldn't believe when I got out to look there was no damage at all except for some slight...
  3. Stupid question: Is a manual 1.8t engine a direct bolt in behind a auto transmission?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know that an auto engine doesn't work behind a 5 speed cause I've done the swap before that way. I actually found a b6 Audi project that needs an engine and I plan on eventually swapping in a 5 speed in the future. In the mean time to avoid shaving the crank I was wondering if I could get away...

    Was wondering what I can do to fix this issue. The door unlocks from the inside normally, but when you double tap the remote key controller all the remaining doors unlock, except the left rear door. Thanks for any input that you all have experienced. Thanks, Mac :confused:
  9. service position question:howto disconnect green plug-lower pass side behind radiator

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    i'm putting my 04 passat GLS into service mode and i think i'm down to the very last thing that needs to be disconnected... i can see the green plug (looks like an inline fuse holder) which is sort of zip-tied to another hose (or cable harness) so it's hard to manipulate with the limited...

  11. The infamous "Sloshing" behind the dash.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, Garrett here. Just wanted to get some input. I have a Sloshing noise from behind the dash. I understand that this is most likely from having air in the heater core and could be quite dangerous. It first started from when I changed thermostat back in summer. I did the proper bleeding...
  12. [Solved] Coolant or mystery leak above transmission and behind firewall

    B5 Garage
    I went under my car today (2003 1.8T AWM auto triptronic) to inspect the transmission range switch (I have code P0706 -- that thread is here) and found dripping around the transmission pan but I don't think it's transmission fluid. It has a slightly sweet smell and I believe it's coolant leaking...
  13. Climate Control causes loud clicking from behind light switch - Relay?

    B5 Garage
    Sometime ago I noticed some weird loud, fast and irregular clicking noises coming from behind the headlight switch probably from the vicinity of where the relays are. The clicking came and went and initially I had no idea why. Now I realize that this clicking only occurs when the climate...

  15. Water under carpet behind driver seat!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks, So it has finally warmed up, and a problem with my 2003 W8 has risen. I've had the car for about 3 years now, and this is the first time it has done this. There appears to be a lot of water collecting under the carpet of my driver seat. I checked the door side drains and the sunroof...

  20. Plastic light bulb housing broke off and stuck behind A/C Control Knob

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So... on a B5.5 with the manual A/C controls (not Climatronic) the knob that controls the speed of the blower (labeled 0-1-2-3-4) is the knob you have to remove to replace the bulb that illuminates the A/C panel. Well, that bulb has been really flaky due to the fact that it keeps popping out of...
