    Hello all. It has been a long time since I have posted on this forum regarding my 01 Passat. Recently, due to oil pressure issues, I have pulled the oil pan, installed a new pump and cleaned the pickup tube out, replaced the windage tray and also replaced the timing chain tensioner. After all...
  4. Does anyone know the part # for this?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

I think it is connected to the combi. The rubber elbow is so hardened that when I lifted the metal pipe it just broke...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I am thinking about buying a 2006 Passat as a project car. The steering wheel does not move, which is the micro switches in the lock module.

  9. Does the 1999 V6 thermostat have one or two orings?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This deserved a separate thread because AndreasPassat and I are discussing an issue that is puzzling. He's convinced that there are two orings, and I only have one. I have one on the old one I removed, and only one came with the new one I'm about to install. It mounts on the outside of the...

When one bulb was out, a...

    Last Friday, June 30th I made an initial move to Phoenix. Spent the previous 2 weeks prepping the wife's GLX so she wouldn't have any hiccups on the way down. When the day came for us to hit the road, the only thing I had time for was to change the oil on my'98 GLS. Told the wife, we'll deal...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, I recently did some maintenance on my Passat, I've posted a few threads, and everything has gone well except for the TB as I suspect it may need to be realigned.
