    Hi guys, I am replacing all the fabric covered hoses for my SAS system. On the front of the engine one hose goes under the coil pack cradle.

    The underside of my turbo inlet pipe (and dripping onto the turbo outlet) is coated in wet oil. The turbo oil lines look dry. Where is this oil coming from? Not really wanting to go into service position to find out.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi, I'm looking for some info please. Many of us UK owners are having problems with the EPB system and I have heard that some USA owners have had parts of the EPB system replaced for free. It was mentioned somewhere that VW USA will replace the rear calipers/motors for free if the car has...
  7. A/C Compressor covered in oil, what did I miss????

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I picked up a '99 1.8T wagon about 2-3 weeks ago. Noticed it had an ugly oil leak in the passenger front above the a/c compressor. I dig into it & "thought" it was the turbo's oil return line(that's a story in its self BTW) & replaced it w/ a good used OEM one. Well, after a week of driving...
  8. Ignition coil - not covered under powertrain warranty

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Does this sound right? They are replacing the intake manifold under warranty and said I had a bad coil. They also suggested replacing the plugs (2009 Passat Wago, 2.0 turbo with 57k miles). They want to charge me $356 to do the plugs and coil. I called another dealership and the parts are...

  11. Digital display seems covered.

    New Member Introductions
    On my 2003 Passat, the digital display showing temp,mileage, etc seems to be partially blocked out. This seems more prevalent with sunlight (heat) beating in on the dash. Also, if the heater is on to satisfy climate control, the same occurs (heat again) Any thoughts on fixes/solutions?

    B5 Garage
    I just went through the ordeal of emptying a gallon of water from underneath my driver and rear seats after noticing that my electronics (alarm) were screwy. I removed the CCM and let it dry out. It didnt appear damaged (the wiring as well) so I put everything back once the area was dry. The...
  13. Covered in scratches

    Wax On, Wax Off
    When I bought my car it was literally covered in scratches, the seller told me it was from his young child that decided to decorate his dad's car with sidewalk chalk. Now I get to clean up the mess. I have a 3m rubbing compound that has worked pretty well, but there are still quite a few...

    Anything Auto
    As is customary in the West, during the Christmas season, retailers decorate their stores accordingly for the holidays. But while most are content with a tree and some flashy ornaments, a Porsche dealer in The Netherlands came up with the crazy idea of covering a spanking-new 911 Carrera S in...

  17. Replaced engine speed sensor, covered in oil

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I replaced the engine speed sensor and when I pulled the old one out, it was covered in oil. Is that normal? I had been having a stalling problem. I had an oil leak in that area a while ago, could have gotten in there then. If that's not normal, could that have been the problem?

  20. Does an AWM have that fourth cloth covered vacuum line?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The one behind the engine. Because I cant find it. I did the three I could see - #'s 1,2 and 3 below, but the only other braided cloth I see anywhere is the short fat one that goes to the firewall and I know that's not it. So where is the darn thing? Does an 02 AWM not have it?
