    Re: 2005 tdi Passat wagon. My ac output had diminished over the last couple of years. I took it in to have it evacuated, dried and recharged by a reputable mechanic. Turned out it also needed a new ac electric fan by the radiator. Now the ac blows ice cold but I have occasional sloshing sounds...

    Folks, Can someone please help me to determine what oil drain plug I have, because the advice I received was to remove mine and measure it. Well that would be fine but it would drain the oil and then I would be down a car while waiting for the oil service kit to arrive. And the spare company...

    Hello fellow Passat-lovers :driving: I have a 2001 Passat GLS w 240,000 miles that (every other day) draws amperage and overnight my battery goes down to 11V or so. Maybe I'm hitting a speed bump bc it doesn't draw all the time. Here is my car's relevant history: 1) I installed an aftermarket...

    I too had a parasitic battery drain associated with the monsoon amp. I noticed blue residue on one of the screws holding it in place. Took the circuit board out of the amp. Cleaned it with electrical cleaner, toothbrush, and hair dryer. Problem solved. Battery drain went from 0.7 amps to 0.07...

    Two weeks ago I installed a Pioneer 270BT, in-dash bluetooth/DVD player in my 00 wagon. At the time of installation, I had left the green wire untouched ( ran out of time that night :P ), the one that allows you to watch DVDs when the handbrake is engaged. All went well for a week or so, until I...

    Hi folks, I've had an issue with the battery draining but it only seems to be in cold weather when the temperature drops to zero or below (Celsius). The battery was tested and was fine, I replaced it anyway as it was at least 4 years old. Now even with the new battery I have the same the issue...

    2000 1.8T ATW No Mods So I've had an ongoing issue for almost a year and a half with no starts and battery drain issues. I fixed the no start (solenoid issue on starter) but have had the continual draining issues. Finally was able to understand how to do a parastic draw test and of course...

    [Solved] What is this strange tube? Old battery drain? Came across this whilst carrying out a coolant flush. Located near the heater pipes. I suspect it's a drain tube from a previous battery (it seems to go down through the bottom of the panel) but if someone could confirm this for me...

    Greetings folks. I'm an automotive noob. I know a little bit about a little bit, but not a lot. Most of what I am about to type is from trial and error, reading forums, and talking to mechanic friends. Unfortunately, they're tied up and can't lend a hand until later in the week, so I'm trying...

    Perplexed by my 03' W8 Passat seems to have a battery draining issue. Took my car to a European mechanic because I was getting a P0318 code (rough road sensor) during emissions. They did a diagnosis said it's the ABS control panel and it need to be replaced (got it to pass emissions). Also had...

    Hello Everyone I have a 06 3.6 Passat with a bad sunroof leak. I have tried blowing out the lines and feeding some weed eater line down through the drain with no effect. I have looked at several sites and they all show the drain exiting in the door jamb near the hinge. There is a solid plastic...

    So I was changing my oil yesterday for the second time and when I went to put the drain plug back on it was very loose and if I tightened it down to far it would pop and be loose again. I tightened it down to just before the pop, which still wasn't tight but now it is leaking from the plug. I...

    I've used a magnetic oil drain plug on our Goldwing motorcycle for many years and would now like to find one for our 2013 Passat with the 2.5 engine. Any recommendations as to where I could find a good one?
