  1. 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...
  2. 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...

  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    SS Style BOV Flange does it look any good? I recently had my ECU reflashed, WOW 10 times more enjoyable to drive!! but i have been reading that its a good idea to upgrade the diverter valve. I thought this looked like a decent one. Ive bought stuff from them before and they actually have pretty...

    Can't get my hands on VDS-Pro software. Found many topics from this forum with download links but they aren't working anymore. So the question is that has anyone got bootable ISO file for me that I can burn to disk and boot from it? I would be very thankful.

  7. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I need to replace my cat ('03 1.8T AWM) since the substrate is all broken and rattling around, and I think also increasing the back pressure to the point where my turbo isn't really working. I'm only planning to keep the car 2-3 more years tops and since it has 100k and is already 11 years old...
  8. Wheel and Tire Forum
    Hey everyone...being realistic, this is probably my last year with the '98 GLX. I'll be inheriting the wife's 01.5 GLX 4mo after we upgrade her to something bigger and newer for two-child-toting duties (and no matter what people might say, the wagon just won't cut it on passenger space or cargo...
  9. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey everyone, like the title says, im just a broke college kid who loves working on my b5. Working on converting interior from gray to black. But I like having multiple projects going on at once, so any ideas? I have projector headlights, (sadly i bought them when i first got the car, so they...

    So I had the micro switch go on my tailgate 2000km out of warranty and no surprise, VW of Canada isn't offering any sort of help (despite five VWs owned in the past 25 years). So anyone have a decent parts source for dub parts? US typically has cheaper parts than Canada (more of you = better...
  11. WTB/WTT Section
    I have one bent wheel. Car came like that and its ruining my brand new tires (6K). The car was wubwubwub-ing and I finally found the culprit. One wheel has a flatspot in it. So, I'm looking for a good Wellington (or set if they're cheap) to replace this one. I want them to be straight and...
  12. USA - South
    I just got my '03 Passat V6 and wanted to know if there's any trusted mechanics in the Marietta/Kennesaw area for these VWs? I have a mechanic that I trust for my other stuff, but I may be looking to do a little more with this car. :poke: Thanks! AJ
  13. Anything Auto
    I test drove a 98 A6 Quatro today. It needs more work than I am interested in doing at the moment. The owner has it posted on craigslist and just wants it gone.He had it listed for $2750, and if it does not sell soon, he will call the junkyard to come get it for $1000. That tells me there is...
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking around but don't understand all the features of these scanners, this one seems to be updateable, which as a geek I know is a good thing. :thumbup: What do you guys think? Ebay Link

  16. Dealerships and Service
    Any suggestions - I'm getting a fuel odor, so think I need to take my '05 4Mo GLX Variant in to see if the recall(s) has(ve) been done - thought it(they) had been done. I've been taking my car to a great Indy mechanic in Brooklyn, but this needs a dealership, I think...Any suggestions much...
  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was looking around to find a cheep 94R battery for my 2003 GLX V6 as it still has the original battery and think my time is running out. I know autozone and checker all have various brands for around $140ish. I was curious and did a google search and found that Walmart has a Everstart MAXX...
  18. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I practically swore I wouldn't sell my Passat this early, and perhaps over the next six months that I'm looking at, there's a good chance I may still not. Factors to make this as brief as possible? The wife hates riding in it after the suspension I had put in (though I still love it, PZ!). She's...
