  3. Wife's 2004 Passat GLS Wagon needs fuel pump, what's a decent low cost one? Started

    B5 Garage
    My original post won't open, so I'm trying again. We were selling the car anyways to make room for a new Passat or Audi A6 then the fuel pump craps out. Changed the fuel filter, which was filthy, which probably helped the pump die an early death. Started searching FCP Euro, ECS, Parts Geek, and...
  4. Wife's 2004 Passat GLS Wagon needs fuel pump, what's a decent low cost one?

    B5 Garage
    We have been actually looking for a newer Passat or Audi when her current VW died the other day. Thought maybe I'd get lucky and replace the filter and be done with it, but not this time. The filter was terribly dirty inside, which probably led to the early demise of her fuel pump. Started...

  7. Cost range for a new passenger fender and paint

    B5 Garage
    My baby (a 2000 Passat GLX wagon, metallic black) took a hit to her right/passenger fender in a parking lot. The damage was minor and limited (mostly) to the fender. I have gotten estimates from $600-$900 for replacing the fender and re-painting. Does this sound about right?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi All: I reached 200k on my Passat 2003 about a couple of weeks ago and around the same time, I received a 200K service coupon from the VW dealership that I purchased my car. Took my car there and with the coupon, it cost me $336.00 to get my car serviced (waste of money). After the service...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had my oil pan replaced last month at a very reputable shop in my area that only repairs Audi/VW and was given an estimate for my right front control arms because of a slight vibration while driving. Is this an accurate price for having them replaced? I don't really trust a tire shop like STS...

    Can you all give me a ballpark figure on what it will take to rebuild the front end of my 03 Wagon 5spd...I recently had to replace my steering rack assembly and it tightened up the front end, but I've got a bad clunk in the pass front and it's still a little wishy-washy in the twisties.
