  1. 2000 1.8t Double Platinum or Iridium plugs?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all I understand the engine is spec'd for the Double Platinum plugs (ie NGK PFR6Q's), the car is totally stock, 90k original miles, and the gas mileage is not very good so IMO it's the plugs...anyways, anybody running Iridium plugs over the Double Platinums? Iridiums seem to be about the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Thinking about putting a pioneer DVD player in but it's a double din and what I have now is a stock single din with premium sound package with the Manuel climate controls so will it be a easy play and play or will have to cut some shit out or make modify any thing ? If anyone has tried this...
  3. Are double din switches different to single din?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have a 2001 Passat B5, and I've performed the double din conversion. However, when I install my original hazard and rear demister switches, I find they are a very tight fit and actually so much so that they get stuck on/off when pressed. I've tried two different double din center frame...

    I know this issue has been discussed several times on PW. I'm trying to find a RELIABLE adhesive to re-attach the thin upholstery trim strip that rides above the door. Many suggestions on previous threads. The one that sounds the best is what the user described as "3M industrial grey (thin)...

  9. Another Stuck Double Din...

    B5 Garage
    Wanted to pull my stereo, so I ordered keys. It's stuck and won't budge. Unfortunately, I cracked the woodgrain frame veneer while trying to get the stereo out.

    Here goes. We have an 05 Passat GLS wagon, fwd auto and stock suspension. It needs new tires, and my dad gave me a set of 17x8 Mille Miglia wheels that I think will look really nice on it. They originally went on his BMW, so we need to order adapters to get the bolt pattern to line up. I've...

  17. Double pull handle to open door

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I replaced my lock actuator, and ever since then I've had to pull my door handle twice to open the door from the inside. No problems when opening from the outside. The black cable that connects to the door handle is hooked on and clipped properly. What did I do wrong?
