  1. Cabin air filter

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I didn't like the smell of my AC last night... Guy who I got the car from said it was swapped right before I bought it (kinda like the timing belt and water pump he didn't actually do). Is that actually what a cabin air filter will look like after a year or is that like the original from...
  2. Strong smell of gas in cabin 2002 1.8T Tiptronic

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I read the looong thread about the recall for the fuel line and heat shield etc. According to the Carfax there aren't any outstanding recalls on my car. Here's what I experienced today: I had the car stored in my storage unit for about 3 or 4 days. I went and got it out today and it started...
  3. AC cabin recirc button doesn’t work.

    New Member Introductions
    2008 Passat (b6). Replaced AC system (everything but evap). All seems well. Air will blow cool but not cold because of outside air mix. also the cabin recirculation button will not stay depressed or lit. Any suggestions. -looks like vacuum hose is okay. -can’t tell if the flap servo motor...
  4. Burning oil smell in cabin.

    New Member Introductions
    Hello all. I'm a new member as well as a new VW owner. I have a 2000 Passat 2.8 GLX just rolled over 74,000 miles, and it has a pretty strong burnt oil smell in the cabin when recirculating air is not on. Oil level is fine, no oil drips in the driveway and I can not find the cause. Valve covers...

  8. Cabin heater no longer working.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So the other weekend I noticed that my cabin heater is no longer providing any heat. The A/C blows super cold so I know the blower is still working. I checked both heater hose at the firewall to see if they both are hot, which they are, so I don't think the core is blocked. I have a feeling that...
  9. Reduced cabin air/road noise. Check it out!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This should prolly be posted on "What did you do to your passat today", but it worked so well that I thought I share it here. I've been doing a lot of hwy driving, and like most of us, every noise pisses me off, especially wind and road noise. Anyway, it's not a Maybach so there will be some...
  10. WHere does 2012 Passat draw fresh air for the cabin? I can't find intake.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I found the cabin air filter under the glovebox and replaced it...but I can't find the fresh air filter or inlet-intake in the firewall or hood vents. Can somebody take a pic and show me? I'd like to inspect that filter and spray some disinfectant in there but for the life of me can't find...
  11. Cabin filter question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was checking my 02 Passat cabin filter yesterday, is there supposed to be a cover over the top. Mine just has the filter sitting in the housing and open on the top. The only thing above that is the cowl cover.
  12. Water in cabin

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Noticed the passenger footwell was wet this morning after a good rain last night. I have a b5.5 wagon without a sunroof so there aren't any drains in the pillars. Where else should I be looking?
  13. K&N makes cabin filters ?!?!

    Anything Auto
    What a good idea. May not be news but I just discovered it. I replace cabin filters once a year minimum. Since the Forte was 2 years old in December, I've already replaced it twice. I was looking up part numbers for the plugs, K&N engine air filter and the cabin filter number on Auto Zone's site...
  14. 2002 B5.5 smell of fuel inside the cabin

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi. Recently I smell fuel from inside the cabin after a few minutes' ride. First, I will take my car to the shop tomorrow so they can check, that much is obvious. But I was wondering if it's anything known. I guess that if it were a leak, my fuel would disappear rather fast, and it's not the...
  15. Heater for the cabin not working at all Passat GLS 2003

    B5 Garage
    This year the Passat did not want to start heating the cabin when I moved to proper setting. I can feel that the hot water pipe is carrying hot water for the heating core, but I have only Clymer's book and no idea how to troubleshoot that. Anyone that could give me some hints on how to start...
  16. Exhaust/gas fumes smelled in cabin when blower on. Any suggestions?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have a 02 passat sw with a 1.8t. For the past month I have smelled fumes in my cabin when the heat is on. Checked under the hood for injector seal leakage but it's bone dry. Also the cowl seal is in good shape. Of course when it's in recirculation mode I don't smell it but after a while my...

  18. Strange sound on cold snap throttle

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 Passat 1.8T AWM Appears only on cold first start of the day. You hear what sounds like around 25 bits of something small and hard floating around in a tube from inside the car. The heater and blower are off, so unrelated to the sound. The sound changes speed of the floating particles with...
