    Hi everyone, I'm slowly working my way down my Passat repair list and hit something that hasn't worked the whole time I have owned the car. I have always had some sort of short in the trunk. When reading through the forums, some people mention the actuator and others the latch. Given my list of...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi, I am a bit confused. I bought a 2017 VW Passat US specs. The car was assembled in the US. Now I keep hearing it is not considered a B8 since the US version is based on the B7 version and only the european Passats are B8s. Is this correct? Sorry if the question sounds stupid, but this is my...

    I recently purchased a 2003 wagon. It had a CD/cassette/radio head unit--nothing said Monsoon on it. I just installed a Sony double DIN HU and like it so I started thinking about adding new speakers and maybe a powered sub. The challenge is that Crutchfield says that I should not have...

    04 Passat V6 auto w- trip Hopefully this weekend I am going to replace this switch to correct my limp mode issues but I have read that the transmission mount needs to be removed. My Bentley doesn't mention it. Do I need to plan on removing the trans mount or not? Thank you

    I have a 2002 GLX V6 No 4 motion as many of you already know. I (THINK I) need the thing that is in the front. I'm not sure if it is a shock or a strut. I am so confused on what each part is. Especially after reading some threads on it; they just confused me even more. The shop says that may be...

    I've tried to look for other threads but this crap is so confusing Okay so all of the cat-delete pipes say they are either full 3" or 3" inlet and 2.5" outlet, they claim it is a direct bolt-on while stock exhaust is 2.25" as far as im concerned. I need a larger downpipe, correct? or how the...

I've been watching many videos and searching a lot through write ups and pictures but the more I see the more confused I get. :rolleyes: In the posted videos and pictures the downstream O2 sensor...

    So my wife has a 2002 B5.5 Auto with a V6. Car has had engine issues recently but after working on it for 25 hours last weekend it was running better than it did when I bought it. Today she drove the car all over creation and it started / ran beautifully every time. We both were about to leave...

    On my 99 B5, I had to rebuild the wiring harnesses for the headlights, as they were pretty much cooked (no insulation on the wires. I don't know how they DIDN'T short out.) So I noticed there are two bulbs in my headlights. A regular dual element that is the headlight, and then one to the side...

  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, rarely ever post here, but have found passat world to be a great resource and have used the forums to fix a lot of problems. Just cant find anything related to my current problem, which I'm slightly baffled at. First the car: 1998 V6 std , I believe a GLX (has a slightly weird variety...

    A few years ago I had the known ABS module issue. I sent it in to be rebuilt. Everything was fine and dandy until recently. The symptoms are similar if not the same. When I start the car, it beeps. The ABS triangle light flashes, then stays on or goes off depending on its mood. Sometimes, the...

    As the title says, I've got an intermittent start problem in my V6 GLS sedan. It's a 5-spd manual transmission. I have tried to search for posts and got a lot of somewhat similar ones but nothing quite like mine. So a couple of weeks ago my car wouldn't start up-this was the first time it's...

    Ok, my saga continues :rolleyes: The temp gauge was not going to 190 as it's supposed to and stuck at 180. Given I have hot air in the cabin my first action was to replace the CTS. Yesterday I changed CTS and today I did a coolant flush and filled it with new G12. Still the gauge does the...

    This is my second post, "I Hope". I am new to any forum as far as posting is concerned, I hope this works. I have used searches on PassaWorld several times and have found it very valuable. I've owned my 05 Passat TDI since 07 and plan to keep it for a while.
