  2. 2010 Passat block heater

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    OK...I'd like to think I'm no dummy, but I can't find the cord. Living in Canada it's absurd to think it wouldn't have a block heater....It's a Canadian car too. 2010 Passat Wagon highline 2.0l. I've google the crap out out of the subject and it looks like they didn't have any...TO ME THIS IS...
  3. Broken tap in block

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I was replacing a 1.8t water pump when I torqued the last bolt down, at 88 inch lbs, nothing but butter. Drilled the hole a little bigger and ended up snapping off my tap inside the hole. I have no clue how to go about removing it. Can I use an acetylene torch to try to remove it or would I...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've done 2 fill ups and flushes with distilled water, emptying at the lower radiator connection. Today I tried going to remove the bolt in the block to get whatever crud may be in there from the previous owner running the wrong coolant and though I could get my allen bit into the...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've narrowed down my oil leak to the filter housing/casing and wondering if anyone can reference a link to the Youtube video showing the filter housing/casing removal from front of block? I've searched Youtube, Google and PassatWorld with no luck... Thanks in advance!

  10. Anyone here think the CC could be on VW's chopping block?

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I've never driven or even set foot in a CC, but I always liked the looks of them, but this model's sales numbers are awful here in the US. Does the CC sell better elsewhere in the world? Thanks largely to "Dieselgate," VW is said to be planning on killing approximately 40 of its 340 different...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Upper mount also has a tab. The lower most hard vacuum line on passenger side, wraps around between the combi valve and block using the upper coolant flange mount for support
  12. Better to block or bypass a leaking heater core?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My B5.5 1.8t is slowly losing coolant and I'm having a hard time locating the source. The plastic heater core and tubing seem a common culprit and while there are no clear visible signs of leaking, I want to temporarily disconnect the core to either identify or rule it out as the problem. The...

  15. Complete AWM head and manifolds on aeb block

    B5 Garage
    I'm picking up a 99 aeb Passat parts car for the manual transmission swap. I'm sick of the tip in my wagon. As I understand the crankshafts between the manuals and autos are different.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello all, Just recently bought a 2010 Passat Komfort and after a week of owning it I would get a low coolant. I check oil and it was still good so that was my biggest worry. Noticed coolant was leaking from the center of the front of the engine block. I have tried to feel my hand up the...
