    B5 Garage
    Besides soaking the offending parts in Kroil for a week, are there any "magic" ways of loosening the triple square headed adjusters (rear camber)?.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an '03 GLS Wagon, and I cannot seem to get the rear center head restraint removed. I frequently need to haul tools, materials, and finished products, and I need the seats flat to optimize my room. I can get it to come up 2ish inches (5ish centimeters), but that is it. I tried it with the...

  11. Can't get snub mount bracket bolts to thread

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is driving me crazy. I've spent the last 3 hours cursing/trying to unsuccessfully thread on the three snub mount bracket bolts to the radiator carrier. Are they captive nuts in the carrier because it seems like whatever the bolts thread to inside have come loose? I may have managed to...

    So, I have an old 2002 Passat Wagon, which has been a rock-steady workhorse. I never was satisfied with the lights, and I finally decided to get new headlights, as the lenses were yellow, and the height adjustment was broken and the lights just illuminated the ground in front of the car. I...

  20. Who says you can't be an enthusiast if you like stock late-model cars?

    Anything Auto
    Has anyone that's been around in the VW world noticed something? There are basically two factions of people you see at VW shows or events. A) The air-cooled crowd: Typically older people that grew up in these models, they like the relative simplicity of the mechanics, they're nostalgic, and...
