    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ...never heard/read of the door lock/latch mechanism failing (locked) quite like this. Think it's a Rockwell design. It's the '99 Passat. Regardless of door lock rod position, the passenger's front door won't open, from the inside or outside. Interior panel is off and about to loosen those...

    our 2001 passat was running very lean, its running at 25% on the trim, O2 sensor is chalk white... I found the crank case breather pipe was broken right where it enters the case under the intake manifold. That didn't make any changes so I looked around and found the diaphragm was torn on the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It looks like the ashtray is supposed to tilt downward after pressing in at the top edge, correct? It looks like mine got stuck when someone pressed it in, but it didn't open. It's stuck at the fullest inward position. I don't want to pry for fear of breaking it. I tried pressing more to see...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently replaces the Door Lock on the Driver door as it was not signaling the car that the door was open. After my Battery dying several times and replacing it I've narrowed down the issue to a power draw on fuse 14, which looks like windows and doors. I have not had a chance to take the...
