    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The old 2004 is now past 164,000km and now the O-ring seal on the breather tube above the oil filter housing is leaking.

    ...Attempting to fix my pcv system today and lo and behold this part - VW part number 078103235k - literally crumbled at both ends. I suspect it was leaking fumes anyhow, but when i went to remove the PCV valve, it literally crumbled apart. It's the rear breather hose, you know, the one I...

    Started working on my EVAP/SAIP/Vacuum issues and found the crankcase breather pipe disintegrated. This left the copper ring stuck solid in the casing below. Brute strength caused me to break the crankcase breather "thingy" that the pipe goes into, the cut out part that the clip slides into to...

    Can someone tell me the difference between part # 06B103221F and 06B103221P? It's the 3-way breather hose near the back of the engine. Mine was split at the bottom so I grabbed another from the dealer with the same part number (06B103221F), but it appears that it's too short? If the bottom part...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know that the PVC replacement has been touched on a lot here. Thats not my issue! My issue that has risen is after I replaced the valve cover gaskets and put on a new PVC breather hose because my 2003 V6 Passat (4 Motion) was leaking oil. I will be honest I did not do the job myself due to...
