  2. Burnt out brake light '08 passat

    New Member Introductions
    Hello I've got a 2008 Passat Sedan. Love it and have had no problems with it. Recently my left brake light went out so I went to Auto zone to get a replacement bulb. They couldn't find it in their catalog and told me I'd have to replace the entire brake light assembly. Thought that was a little...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Having owned this Passat since February 2004, I have not needed to change any bulbs on the car, ever. I have however replaced the xenon bulbs a year ago, but the the original bulbs were still in quite good condition (no reddish hue, the sign of bulb going out). Anyway, now, today is the day that...

  5. Burnt oil smell - GONE!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My aging 2001 1.8T at 126K miles was suffering from persistant oil leakage from the CCT area onto the exhaust, and fumes getting drawn into the heater and stinking up the cabin. Common problem, apparently, at this age. I was skeptical that it was simply due to plugged check valves, but I ordered...
  6. Fuse is getting burnt multiple times

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi forum so 1 month ago CEL came on, i checked at autozone and it was P0411 which is secondary air system. So there are many possible reasons: 1. Fuse is dead 2) hoses are loose, 3) Air pump is dead 4) Solenoid valve is dead 5) Relay is dead. So I checked Fuse and fuse was dead. I replaced...

What are common underlying causes? - I don't want to attempt fixing the cylinder head and have the problem recur soon afterward. I googled but couldn't dig up much info about 1.8T engine.

  19. Both low beam lights burnt out at the same time

    B5 Garage
    I just noticed that both DRLs are out. Obviously, so are the low beams. I have replaced burnt out bulbs before, but never the both at the same time. I was just wondering if this is just a symptom for something I should watch out for. Fog & high beams are ok. The low beam fuses are ok as well...
