    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have zero power to dash or any other accessory. Car acts like it has no battery. Battery is fully charged though. I'm wondering what kind of damage I could have done by doing a jump start. The story is that the alternator workshop message came up as well as the red battery symbol on the...

  19. Drivers Side Tweeter Is Dead. Best site for replacement?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello was just wondering if there was a write up on how to replace it, and what site would be best to use to get a new one? I understand that it's glued in so I need to get the whole trim piece too. Correct? The only ones I'm finding are on eBay but they a re all scratched up and look like crap.
