  1. Both tail lights out, fuse and bulbs OK

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I am driving through the rain and sleet yesterday and this guy flashes me. He drives up at the next traffic light, and tells me both my tail lights are out. (Thanks, by the way, I prefer to be told by a friendly stranger than a car with flashing red and blue lights ... :-)). I can't say for...

  5. Changing Bulbs

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I think I'm generally pretty good about changing parts on my car, but for the life of me I haven't found a simple way to change the tail light bulbs in my 5.5 wagon. The turn signal seems to be the most difficult thing to get reinstalled. Is there a trick of any sort to it? I finally got it...
  6. LED Bulbs at!

    Car restorers know answers to the question,"How long does it take to replace an instrument panel light bulb?" range from "five minutes" to "I started taking apart the instrument panel two months ago, and I still haven't found that %[email protected]# bulb!"

  11. Another headlight question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So the other day my low beam headlight stopped working. Checked the bulb and found it was bad. Before I was able to get to the store and purchase another headlight the other one went out too. This has got me thinking about something that I always thought was odd. My 04 Passat has three bulbs...
