    I know that I am so late in this. My 2001 B5 is 13 year / 145K old and I still have the original monsoon single DIN with tape & in-truck CD changer. I soon need to tear into dash for the dread heater core leak so I am thinking maybe it is time to get a new deck OR some sort of bluetooth/phone...

    I've got an '03 Passat and decided that I was either going to buy a new car for some bells and whistles or upgrade the deck in the current car. Clearly upgrading the deck and speaker system is the cheaper way to go. :) However, I've heard conflicting reports so I thought I would ask....would...

    When I took out the stock vw monsson tape deck with trunk cd changer, I saw a label on the radio that indicated slots for an AMP and external display. I am curious about the display. How would it work? Is this for video playback? Does the cd changer take dvds as well? Anyone try this? This...

    I just did all the wiring for a new double din deck for my passat. Turned my key and all that showed up was a blank white screen. Seems as though only the backlights were on. Is there possibly something im doing wrong or do i have to do a lockout somehow kinda like the stock radio? Any help is...

    Does anyone know how to remove the rear deck on a 2006 Passat? I would like to remove it so that I am able to put an amp rack underneath it in the trunk, but I do not want to just start yanking at it and have the side curtain aribags blow in my face.

    Until I get my HU installed (waiting on insurance to pay for my sub), I got a cassette adapter to play my Zune. Well it will randomly switch decks from A back to B, and sometimes go A B A B then start playing again. It's weird, it will play a whole song then switch during the next, and other...

    I installed an aftermarket deck into my 1999 passat last night only to find my battery dead this morning. I did not use a wiring harness because I have the wiring diagrams for the stereo. When I first installed the deck it would not turn off when the car was shut off. I did some research and...

    Hey all, I just installed an alpine HU into my 03 Passat, the install went awesome except for the fact I get no sound out of the speakers, my original thought was due to the amp for the monsoon stereo, but there is no amp in the trunk, i am stumped i do not know what i did wrong or what i am...

    is there any way to add a amp to a stock deck to run a sub in the trunk? I have a 2003 passat and I dont want to remove the stock deck. I dont know what a monsoon amp is so I dont think I have one.

    Kind of a n00b question, for which I apologize in advance... After trying to build a custom cable for a Phatbox to fit in my '03 Variant - and reversing the pinouts and seemingly frying the unit - I'm looking at installing an aftermarket deck. I'd like to stay OEM but I'd like to be able to...
