  1. Rattling sound coming from serpentine or aux fan area

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    B5.5 2.8. I changed all the pulleys and belts less than 2 years ago and it's only been driven like 10k miles or less. Could this be a bad bearing in the aux fan? All other tensioners and pulleys were changed except the alternator's but the sound is too high. It feels like it's right under the...
  2. 2006 Passat dash Service info coming on at engine startup?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a Service in 5400 miles or 15 days info that comes on during car start? What would I have to do to clear it or what do you think it is referencing to? Mileage is currently at 116,496 miles. I'm not within the oil change schedule. TIA Mac Fairfield, CA :wrench:

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I recently remmoved the dirty water and replaced it with red coolant. A couple days later, drops of coolant started to appear on the floor. I tried to search where it was coming from but it seemed to have stopped (?). Then a few days later it started to leak again, more this time. I can...

  14. Faint noise coming from the compressor (maybe?)

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hello, I own a Passat B7 (2011) and it has been a while since I hear this faint rubbing noise (https://youtu.be/6jhYxMLIfRA) which disappears as soon as I turn the AC on (https://youtu.be/Q2WLlmtlLfA). I was told that it is the compressor (Delphi 5N0 820 803A) but I am not very convinced since...
  15. 2007 2.0t Cooling fans not coming on, fcm and fan replaced. Thermostat replaced

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    So this saga begins with the overheating of the car. No spray or steam (ie, hoses intact) and coolant level fine. Had the car towed to the house. First thing everyone says is to replace the thermostat. In this car you have to take off the alternator, etc. etc. and then you replace the whole...
  16. Foam coming from vents - where is the blend door?

    B5 Garage
    Hi, I have a 2000 reg Passat B5 with Climatronic. I have foam coming out of the interior vents occasionally, and I believe it's caused by the foam disintegrating on the blend door. My aircon doesn't seem to work very well and I so this coupled with the foam leaves me to think its the blend...
