  1. AC and Heater not working, what to do to fix it?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi folks, A couple of weeks ago my dad's B6 TDI passat's AC stopped working. It only blew warm air. The weird thing is, after I checked it, the heater also doesn't seem to be working. It does blow air, quite well actually, which means the fan is still working, and the fuses are good, so those...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey everyone, I recently discovered an exhaust leak that turned out to be a broken v-band clamp on the stock turbo from my 2010 2.0T TSI engine. I've attached a picture of the broken one, and a new one that I found online (after much searching...). VW do not list this as an individual part...

    B5 Garage
    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...

    What would cause this tube to keep breaking? I have replaced three times. Does anyone make a metal version of this (06A103213F)?
  7. '03 1.8T Hissing sound, is this a broken vacuum line?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, can anyone identify what this broken component is for me? Its a line going under the coolant reservoir and appears to have something snapped off at one end. My car has had a little trouble idling for a few months now and it throws misfire codes, could this be the cause of that?

  9. 2006 2.0T - broken flex pipe

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The flex pipe (back of engine) is broken. While cheap downpipes are available for other 2.0T (recently bought one for my 2006 A3 FWD 2.0T), i can't find a reasonable (i.e. cheap) downpipe listed for the 2006 Passat 2.0T. Or I am not looking for the right model. Is the there a model that cross...

  12. 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...
  13. Broken coil spring

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello everybody, I took my car today for state inspection and it failed because of a broken coil spring in the front strut. There was a piece of the coil that was hanging but the spring itself seems to be holding fine. I'm pretty sure it will pass inspection now that I removed that broken piece...
  14. Ignition switch broken?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I believe my ignition switch is broken. Ignition will not turn with out a great deal of force. It spins freely then and will not start but the radio will come on if left in a certain position. Unfortunately the steering wheel is locked out as well. Locked out straight and I can't unlock it...

    Hi folks, So I was replacing all the rear cam seals and when I removed the camshaft position sensor cap out of the way to get to the seal behind it, I was left with a small magnetized piece left inside. Fished it out and had to read up online to discover where it went. Looked in the cap/cover...

  19. Strange steering issue - what's broken??

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello everyone. I have googled for my problem, but to no avail. My 2010 Passat is showing some very weird behaviour during steering left, that I nor my workshop can figure out. The sympoms are only apparent when driving fairly fast, at least 60 km/h it seems, and turning left. When I do this...
