  7. Reviews of the B7 Exterior Design

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My older Passats have a hinged clip - I had to change a low beam in my '04 (New to me) and it has an odd metal clip that was a pain to get in right. Anyway got it in, wouldn't have been so bad if the clip hadn't fallen into the engine bay and I had to fish it out. Are all B5.5 like this?

  19. B5 Transmission Design.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
