  1. The nozzle on the top of the coolant tank broke off, is it safe to drive?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The nozzle on top of the coolant tank broke off as I was moving the tank out of the way to disconnect some sensors. Attached is a stock picture of the tank with the area that broke circled in red. There's about a 1/4in piece left that's reinforced with plastic bars on the top and bottom and that...
  2. Just broke the plastic handle oil level Passat 2003 B5.5 AWM engine?

    B5 Garage
    The plastic broke and I just had an old change but big leaks on the Turbo unit so I cannot go by the amount of oil unless through it out and replacing this new oil with another new batch. Could someone that owns a Passat as mine above just go and measure the distance from the very end of the...
  3. Broke a drill bit into the pinch bolt

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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. Glove box handle broke up, how to insert?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello guys. So the winter came in and made some trouble for my Passat B5 (1999 y., 81 kW, 1.9). The problem is that, one day when I tried to open my glove box, its handle broke down. I have fixed the break up point and sticked the metal rods with glue in the holes where they should be and now I...
  5. Broke off top of coolant temp sensor.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 passat V6 260,000 miles. Recently my car has been refusing to start when cold, the only way to get it going is a lot of cranking and starting fluid. My first thought was coolant temp sensor, it was only a few bucks so I picked one up. Attempted to replace it but the retention clip...
  6. Broke valve cover stud

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    2.0t fsi engine. Noticed oil leaking from my valve cover so I got in a new gasket, and bought a pcv delete while I was at it. Broke the very first stud that is supposed to be tightened and half of the stud is now in the head block. Small amount of white smoke is coming from valve cover, and I...
  7. Broke coil pack connector 1999 AEB 1.8T Passat, can't find replacement

    New Member Introductions
    Yesterday I replaced the coolant flange on the back of the cylinder head because of a seal leak, what a PITA! While doing this and leaning on the engine and cursing the German engineers, I broke off the plastic tabs on both sides of the front coil pack connector. I have searched all over the...
  8. Help I broke something! (Or it was already broken?)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    (Look at my hand) Forgive my lack of knowledge for the terminology... but I broke whatever that is. What is it? What do I have to buy to fix it? I was taking a look at the PCV system and loosened up that top electrical component housing thing and very carefully just moved it an inch or two...
  9. Car broke down and won't start (But can be jumped)

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey guys. So my Passat (2008 2.0t fsi) broke down in the middle of a busy street about 2 to 3 weeks ago. Couldn't jump it. Replaced it with Auto-zone Duralast Gold battery (I know, not a good brand to begin with), car started and ran. Gave me problems on Sunday when I was driving home on the...
  10. Timing belt broke. Need advice.

    B5 Garage
    2000 wagon 1.8t 5spd. 239k. I didn't actually break. The crank pulley bolt backed out and then it jumped timing. Pistons have slight dents in them. Thats no problem. I will just smooth off the burs. Head needs rebuilding of course. Need to replace the timing pulley as the key was sheared. My...
  11. hard fuel line broke

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It seems like this problem is not rare -- see this for pics (exact same spot): http://www.passatworld.com/forums/b5-garage/268560-broken-fuel-line-engine-bay-question-part-removal-point.html I just got hit by this very issue. The supply line to the fuel rail developed what looked like a pinhole...
  12. broke timing belt

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 Passat, excellent shape 87000 miles. Well, timing belt broke. First note- rubber is at best good for 10 years. Ok, timing belts suck but they are a reality. I have fairly extensive experience with this issue so its a good bet there are bent valves. Now, the question. I can find reman...

  14. Serpentine Belt Broke, Wiring Harness Damaged

    New Member Introductions
    This isn't my car, but I'm helping a friend. I don't know any of the history of the car. I got a call today from a friend, she said her serpentine belt was broken. I bought a belt and went to see the car. When I got there, I found not only had the serpentine belt snapped, but a number of wires...
  15. Broke my VW 3366!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am in the middle of changing the valley and cam chain tensioner seals on a 2000 V6... I started with the tensioner on Cylinder2 4, 5, 6. since that stuff is at the front of the engine and easier to get to. Rather than pushing down the chain tensioner, the VW tool (from blauparts) snapped in...
  16. Broke Front Left Spring - car now has vibration

    B5 Garage
    Hi there, My strut spring broke on my way home, the car dropped down but was still "driveable". I took it slow and easy back to my house (5 miles or so), and noticed when coasting the car was riding Ok, but when when i was accelerating i was getting a strong shimmy. Got it home, swapped out...
  17. Broke the serp belt- 1999 AEB. What a pain to replace!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My son got stranded last Friday when the serp belt broke, too far from home to risk driving home at night with no alternator output. The car was transported back home, and when getting set to replace it, I was reminded that on the AEB at least, this isn't a quick and easy belt to replace. The...
  18. Broke My Side Mirror Control Knob -- Can I Replace it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 Passat GLX, AWD. The knob for adjusting the side mirrors broke off. Is this something I can replace myself? (I have taken apart the door to replace the window motor pin.) Thanks.
  19. Broken Oil Filter Bracket

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I searched this and didn't get exactly what I was looking for. I was replacing the Breather Hose and etc. on my 03 AWM 1.8T with the kit from 034. Broke the breather hose where it connected to the oil filter bracket just like everybody else on earth. But then I also broke the oil filter bracket...
  20. Oh NO - broke it

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Car: 2008 Passat - climate dual control Well I did it again - I was not getting any heat from my heater so I decided to try and flush it out. Took off the top hose and took a knuckle with it and knocked off the smaller hose nipple above the larger hose. This hose runs up to a steel pipe - I...
