  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Can anybody tell me what the two square silver boxes with “adjustment knobs” are in this pic? It’s on the plate behind the inlet manifold and seems to be part of the vacuum system. Just wondering what they adjust...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I'm slowly working my way down my Passat repair list and hit something that hasn't worked the whole time I have owned the car. I have always had some sort of short in the trunk. When reading through the forums, some people mention the actuator and others the latch. Given my list of...

    So I was drilling out the pinch bolt to change the upper control arms on my Passat B5.5. I had around half a centimeter to go, until I broke the drill bit into it, oh well. The drill bit says 4.5 HSS, so it is a 4.5 mm HSS bit, from this tool set...
  4. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi all. I have tried searching and haven't really found anyone that has said anything related to a 13 passat tdi. On the drive to work and home, 1 hour each way, I have been getting consistently higher EGTs on cylinder 1. 200 difference minimum, but as high as 400 difference. I have seen it up...

    I was replacing my valve cover and cam chain tensioner gaskets on my '02 Passat 1.8L GLS and I'm almost 100% sure I dropped a 1" hex bit into what I'm assuming is an oil passageway right under the exhaust camshaft-side of the drive chain. I removed the cam chain tensioner and the intake...

    From June. A close friend got married. She didn't want to have her 70-something dad fly out here so she decided she wanted to do the wedding in Newport Beach. We wanted to something big this year since I was turning 50 and my other half, 40. We decided to make it a road trip. "Oh you guys are...

    Hi I'm having some issues with my b5.5 Passat 1.9 4motion, i will give you a bit of history first. About 5 months ago the turbo failed so i bought a recon one from eBay. Done all the work myself and got her back on the road but had a niggling issue where it lacked boost at low rpm, slow turbo...

    Well new member with a gas passat - no you heard right - gas - biogas with the 1.4 T petrol backup Engine. It is a 2010 model bought at auction with "R" specification. Really pleased. Started with a major hickup with faulty injector module but VW replaced them free. Then a gas cylinder upgrade...

    I'm really hoping it's not too serious. But I have a 2012 Passat SE. About a week ago, my check engine light came on. After restarting the car (I was running an errand), it never came back on. Since then, my car occasionally will jerk when I come to a stop applying the break. If I come to a very...

    I just purchased a 1999 Passat Wagon. While running around the pick n pull, I found a really clean looking sedan interior. I don't want the bottom half of the seat only the top. That being said, has anyone tried to swap the top of the sedan into a wagon? I think the cup holder would look really...

    Hi all, on the advice of my neighbor I cut out the cherry bomb resonator that was in the car when we bought it. Replaced for the time being with a 24" straight pipe. I'm eventually going to replace that with a new muffler to quiet it down some. In the meantime, has anyone had any experience...

    On my 99 B5, I had to rebuild the wiring harnesses for the headlights, as they were pretty much cooked (no insulation on the wires. I don't know how they DIDN'T short out.) So I noticed there are two bulbs in my headlights. A regular dual element that is the headlight, and then one to the side...
  15. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm not sure if there is something wrong, or if it's just me. My 99 Passat w/ the 1.8t and the auto trans, seems a bit sluggish off the "line". I'm not racing it, but I went to jump on the throttle at a light the other day, and the car seemed to have fall flat. After a second or so, it did pick...

    This weekend a friend and I dropped the transmission out of my car to do a clutch replacement. Fortunately he had a cheap set of triple square driver bits to get the front axles disconnected. We would both like a better set of these for future work. I would prefer something US made but I...

    Aloooha! I've been sitting on this Audison Bit 10 for almost 4 months, simply because I'm a little intimidated with the wiring, and not having a diagram for my 2013 B7 Passat. I've installed aftermarket sounds numerous times, and everything is pretty easy for me, but installing a processor to...

OBTW first timer. what...

    I need to drill out alloy Mercedes wheels with M12 lug holes to work on my Passat with M14 lug size. I need all the info on what drill bit I should be looking for. Is there supposed to be some wiggle room with the bolts and the holes? One vid says he used 5/8" bit which is 15.875mm Size...

    Noticed the front end humming and shook the wheel, bearing was shot. So my buddy had an 82mm bearing from his old A4 he sold in september 2012, gave it to me for free. Was a GMB 700-001, pressed it in and ever since, I've had some weird issues. Drove it with STOP ABS Fault, worked fine until...
