    Hello, So, I recently got a B5 Passat Wagon. When I got the car, the drivers seat airbag was blown. The previous owner said something like he was trying to install HID's and he somehow triggered the drivers seat airbag to blow. I got a new seat, and I was going to install it but I want to know...

    Hey, I have two problems I could use some help on. My b5 1.8t has the engine light on. I tried to check the code but it could never connect. Stopped at O'Reillys to use their code reader and it still wouldn't work. I checked and the fuse isn't blown. I was going to pull apart the aftermarket...

    We have recurring seat issues with our 2008 Passat wagon. The drivers seat tilt has been repaired 5 times. It worked well until 2013. It then tilted back and stopped working. Since then we have had 3 new switch assemblies. In 2014, ALL functions of the seat quit. No movement of any motor. We...

    I replaced the drivers door window regulator and now the drivers door won't open from outside after being locked and unlocked. If I get out of the car and close the door, it will open just fine from the outside. If I lock the door with the key fob, then un-lock the door with the key fob, the...

    I replaced the drivers door lock/actuator with a brand new one from the dealer. Most of the time it works fine but sometimes when I shut the door it doesn't close properly and I need to press the unlock button on the door panel and then press the lock button, then the door closes solidly. This...

    I followed the standard procedures for replacing the door lock actuator mechanism in the drivers door (see steps below). I did something wrong, because when I replace the lock cylinder it won't lock in place and stay. I turn the set screw all the way in but I can still pull the cylinder out...

    I have followed pretty much every trick or technique discussed and the CV axle will not pop loose from the Driver side. (Passenger side went well with the chisel technique) I'm used a slide hammer, cold chisel, drilled a hole through the tulip and attached a chain an tried to yank on it with...

    I need the driver's front plastic trim that goes over the mounting nut on the factory roof rails for a 2000 wagon. Please post up a photo of the back side so I can see all the tabs are still attached (if mine were, my trim wouldn't be hitchhiking on some back road right now). Dealer says not...

    My drivers door lock on my 1998 Passat B5 wagon decided it didn't want to work fully anymore. When I put the key in the lock and turn it, it will manually lock the drivers door but not trigger the central locking. However if you try to unlock from that drivers door the central locking works fine...

    I have an exhaust leak that I was hoping was just the gasket between the manifold and the downpipe, but the guy at the garage says it is a cracked manifold. They want $900 to fix it. Does this sound reasonable? It's definitely sticker shock.

    Today I've disassembled and assembled my drivers door (due to some issues with electronic problems) and after finishing the work and finding the problem for the other things I was finally happy that I've decided exactly where the problem was but after locking the car I've unlocked it again but...

  14. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    I'm new to the place, and new to Volkswagens in general. I had been driving Subaru's for most of my life. Though there is a ton of info here I'm wondering if the early model forums are still populated? I am planing a few large jobs to get the Passat I bought at a level I am happy with; but am...

    This weekend a friend and I dropped the transmission out of my car to do a clutch replacement. Fortunately he had a cheap set of triple square driver bits to get the front axles disconnected. We would both like a better set of these for future work. I would prefer something US made but I...

    I have a 2004 gls passat and I have noticed a while ago that my window doesn't go up or down. I have no power to lock to doors or unlock them and I have no sound coming out of the speaker. Everything else works on all the other doors. Any help on where to start would be a huge help

    For a few days, I would go to adjust my drivers seat and it was acting funny, it would not work, then it would start working again. But then, while driving, the seat went all the way back to the recline position by itself! And it will not move back up! The seat will move forward and back and...

    The picture below is from the thread url below the picture. I spent several hours trying to get the top nut off of the three bolts where the drivers side exhaust pipe attaches to the engine manifold. I could not reach the bolt from below. From above there was not enough room to turn the nut...
