  1. B7 drivers seat not working

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion

It didn't come with the fuse panel diagram, so I just pulled every fuse and they're all good. I think it might be the the driver's side power seat control module, but don't...

  6. Drivers Mirror

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 01 wagon (5.5 body) and on the way to work mirror cover popped off. 3 questions, would the cover from a 99 fit and if not, is the cover available separately? If separate isn't an option, easiest way to tell if heated/no heated( don't see any indication on the mirror itself).

    After following my daughter's car in traffic for a few miles, she stopped to let me know that my driver's side light seemed too bright and aimed differently from my passenger light. It was still daytime, so these were my daytime running lights (DRLs). I sort of confirmed her observation next...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I was wanting to know best process to follow to determine what root cause is for driver side heated seat not working. Passenger side heats good. Fuses have been verified. Switch lights up when roll to setting. I am thinking it is an element wire under cover.
