    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I can't afford to take it to the dealership so what can I do to troubleshoot to find out the problem? Or are these two problems something needs to be taken care of at a German shop. I have a 2005 VW passat

    OK I have a 1999 B5 with an AEB engine. I have had this problem for a while but had forgot all about it as I have not been driving the car. Here is what I have found out so far, last year I heard what sounded like a blow off value, but I do not have one of them. I checked all the lines and went...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello My A/C works, blows nice cold air. As I am driving the fan stops blowing. The LEDs on the A/C panel are lit but no cold air. I stop the car, restart it and the air starts blowing again. Have you see this problem? What should I do to try and fix it? Thanks! Matt

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Looking for some help on this one. After replacing the fuse, the turn signals will work for a little while, sometimes 1 minute sometimes 2 miles down the road. Then they stop working. Hazards work fine. I added a trailer wiring harness with those wire crimpers which seemed to be the...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion

  20. THAT's a blow off valve?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Color me naive, but until yesterday I guess I'd misinterpreted what people were talking about when they said they wanted a BOV because they liked the noise. I came across some sort of de-badged Subaru on the highway. Usual accoutrements; fart-can exhaust, giant spoiler, oversized, red-painted...
