  3. Front seat bottom removal - why remove whole seat from car?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have reviewed all the write-ups and YouTube videos I can find. I still do not understand why the entire front seat must be removed from the car just to get the bottom cushion out. I have a replacement bottom cushion with cover attached. It looks like the bottom cushion should just pop out...
  4. Leak from bottom of differential on 2001 B5.5 1.8T tiptronic

    B5 Garage
    So I noticed just the other day that my 2001 1.8T B5.5 with auto tiptronic was starting to leave small drips from the passenger side. The color was a little lighter than ATF and maybe a little yellow/gold in color. Initially I thought it might actually be ATF since it didn't look like oil to...
  5. Any front caliper bottom guide pin tips?

    B5 Garage
    Hey Passat folks. I'm doing a "simple" front brake pad change on my 2001.5 1.8T. The sensor wire on the passenger side was fubar so a pad change seemed like an easy Sunday afternoon project. The driver's side changed out with no problems at all, but the passenger side is another story. I...

  10. Top brake light brighter than bottom one?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have tried using the search function, but wasn't able to find this same problem- on my left tail light, when I put on the brakes, the brake light on top is much brighter than the one on the bottom, if the one on the bottom is lighting up at all. I replaced both bulbs, but this didn't do...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My wife went 552 miles on a tank today.......from the western suburbs of Chicago to past Pittsburgh. It took 18 gallons to refill. I imagine the fuel pump is still choking on most of the junk from the bottom of the tank. :D

This time I found the head and valve train in good shape, but only 3 of the 4 pistons are moving when I turn the crank (is that bad?) ;-) Anyhoo, can you tell me which 1.8T long blocks are compatible with my AEB head and tranny? The local...

    B5 Garage
    Hi , I am writing this as I am confused regarding the bottom bolt removal. Is it definitely removable without removing the left tranny mount and heatshield?

    Just need the cover, not the whole seat frame, so if you have a seat with a blown airbag, or a seat in general with black leather in great condition, let me know! I don't want any with tears or hard leather spots (from water damage), that's what I'm trying to replace! Thanks! Tanner

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Take a look: What is this and where does it go? -red arrow- <- :P Click to enlarge: It seems to just be dangling. Is it supposed to be attached to something? Seems silly to just have something dangling there. Also I've been looking for a good DIY on lock cable/latch replacement. Having...
