    Hi, I have -03 Passat and problem is that when it starts getting damper (ie. fall is coming) the dashboard and button back lights start to flicker. It doesn't really matter what position the adjuster is it will flicker the same. Sometimes going completely off and then full on again, other times...

    Okay, so here's the deal, I dumped my headunit (Pioneer P9) and went with a tablet with USB audio going to into a USB DAC to my DSP via optical.. Basically no more RCA from HU (tablet) to the processor and the audio is passed in the digital domain versus analog and let the processor use it's...

    Hi, So I'll shortly be retrofitting the B5.5 full FIS cluster to my 2000 Passat B5. Now I have some experience coding the cluster/matching keys and so it got me thinking. Is it possible to change the standard Passat B5 2-button keyfob (lock/unlock) to a 3-button (lock/unlock/boot)? Specifically...

    Where has the time gone? My last post was YEARS ago... My time is not my own anymore. :( Anyway, wish this could come at a happier juncture, but the wife has declared the Passat 'too old', and forced me to buy a new car. Though I pondered over a few used BMWs and Audi A/S4s, I decided to bite...

    04 GLX sedan There is a black rubber cover that is located in between the license plate lights. I appears to be covering a button but I haven't a clue what it does. When I press it (thinking it's the trunk release) it doesn't do anything. Inside trunk release works, the remote unlocks it...

    So the inside center rear view mirror fell off the windshield. The whole assembly came off... the mirror, arm with ball and the metal "button" that attaches to the windshield. I need to know how to get the round metal button out of the arm .. so I can re-glue the button onto the windshield...

    Ebay seems to have a few options for heated steering wheels - mostly from a Touareg. The wheels look the same as what the B7 has, which is actually the problem - there's no extra button to activate the heat function. There's a Youtube video showing how to turn on the heat, but the video is in a...

    The button to lower the hatch on my '08 Wagon works sporadically. Sometime I can push it over and over and over and the hatch won't lower, so I close it manually. Next time I hit it once, and it closes. I assume it's a flakey button. How tough is it it to replace? From what I gather, I...

    My MFD is blank and has not worked for about a year. Some how the speed warning beep is set to go off at about 25 mph. Very annoying. Can someone give me the steering wheel button sequence (menu, ok, +, -) that will set the speed to -- instead of 25?

    Gas release button stopped working, I found this out when I had a 1/4 of gas tank left. Auto lock system also is not working, it was on and off for a little bit and then gradually stopped working. Any idea what might be the problem?
