  1. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I am posting this because I own both a B5.5 and a Porsche 928. I know that Porsche wheels are very popular among VAG folks and there is an effort underway to get the classic Porsche phone dial wheel into production in an 18" diameter wheel in various contemporary widths and offsets. Weight...

    Just picked up a new 2011 Passatt (UK spec), with RNS 315 radio / sat nav system installed. The manual states that a voice dial function is available, when connected via Bluetooth to a mobile phone I've tried two phones so far and the voice dial function does not work with either phone. The...

    Is the sunroof control dial illuminated? How do I remove the panel to replace the bulb if there is one inside? Thanks

    So I went to turn up the fan for my heat and something felt like it was blocking it and it wouldn't move. I fiddled with it and it broke free and now it doesn't work. It moves freely but doesn't adjust anything. I tried searching but didn't come up with anything, is this a simple fix? What...

    The lights for the temperature dial and fan speed are out (under the radio). The button to turn on/off the AC is still working. How do I get these other lights to come back on? All other dashboard lights are working fine.
  7. The Showroom
    So don't say nothin' about that, 'kay? :P I went and registered my car at school today and thought, "New shoes ... new scenery ... NEW PICS!" So I tried the best I could under the time constraints (read: daylight) to follow all the things I learned in photography class ;) I guess they came out...
  8. The Showroom
    This last Saturday some of the PNW crew got together to do a drive and overnight stay in Eastern Washington. It was to start from I-5 in Seattle and then break off on to Hwy 20 with a stop in Winthrop, and then continue on to Wenatchee for the night. I personally could only do the one day :cry...

    Is it supposed to light up at all up there? Mine doesn't and I was just wondering if it's supposed to and if it is, how hard is it to replace the bulb or do what I gotta do to get it to light back up?

    I just noticed when the lights are on, my interior lights that illuminate the HVAC controls (temperature, fans speed, vent controls,etc.) blink off when I switch fans speeds via the fan dial/knob. When they go off, if I wiggle the fan dial/knob, they come back on. Is this a faulty dial/knob...

    I remember someone had posted the exact radio shack LED model number and instructions to illuminate the dial as well for the W8 sunroof mod. Since the serarch is still crippled somewhat, anyone have a link to that old thread? It's supposed to be a red LED that is a perfect mate for it all. TIA

    Got a lead that I could have my turbo replaced under warranty even though not technically under warranty since I am not the first owner at 95,000 mile. The turbo was replaced for a fellow B5er under emissions warranty. Worth a shot. Number please to dial.Tips?
