  1. Help identifying intake duct (Specific nomenclature)

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Greetings. Hopefully this should be a quick and easy one for all of you with miles traveled under the hood of the 2.0t Passat. Without further ado, there is a plastic duct, about four to six inches long, formed in an elbow shape, that connects to the MAF sensor on one side and a rubber intake...

  4. Intake duct question.

    B6 Garage
    I recently bought a 2006 Volkswagen Passat T2.0 (which didn't come with an owners manual) and after about 1,500 miles of driving it I popped the hood and found that a part of the air intake (a hard plastic duct) had broken off from the front grille housing. I was wondering if anyone knew what...
  5. A/C duct access

    B5 Garage
    Is it too difficult to remove the vent grilles from the dash to access loose items inside the ducting? I believe PO's youngster made some "deposits" to the vents, and whatever's in there is driving me a little nuts! It sounds like something flat sliding several inches each way when turning...
  6. Can it be duct taped???

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I don't think so... No one was hurt, not even sore today...Im sore from the skiing I did all day before this but not from the wreck. I pulled out in front of a late 90's Pathfinder...:mad: Insurance will look at it soon
  7. Duct Tape : MAF Testing - anyone tried it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was just reading up and spotted this on an A3 forum somewhere. The person covers 2/3 of the MAF to test if it's faulty then goes for a drive. Only way I could think this is testing is there is a smaller surface area so less air to intake so it would match the air the "faulty" maf is looking...
  8. Intake air duct question?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm new to the site and have a question for those in colder climates with a 2.8 V6. Is it common to have warm air come out of the intake air duct once you park? I only noticed it since the temp dropped below freezing and I thought from the look of it, I had a coolant leak since I noticed steam...
  9. How do I get duct tape off window tinting?

    Wax On, Wax Off
    I took possession of a 2000 Passat with tinted windows. The passenger window regulator is broken, and the PO used duct tape to keep the window up. Hence, duct tape on the tinted windows on the inside. Any ideas how to remove it without affecting the tint? Thanx! Z
  10. How to Take Down Air Intake Duct (for 2.8 V6)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anybody can tell me how to take down the intake air duct (the section from air filter box to front grill) for my V6 2.8 motor? It looks like that the section consists of 2 or 3 black plastic fittings. Shall I just pull them apart, or are there any hidden catches or fasteners that I have to...

  12. Access to G89 Air Duct Temp Sensor?

    B5 Garage
    The Climatronic system on my Sedan hasn't been cooling correctly, so I did a Vag-Com scan, and discovered a fault in the G89 sensor circuit. 1 Fault Found: 00787 - Temperature Sensor in Fresh Air intake duct (G89) 30-10 - Open or Short to B+ - Intermittent Bentley says it is behind the...
  13. FS: Intercooler Air Duct

    Classified Archive
    Bought this air duct replacement and never did get around to installing it. It basically directs air from the lower bumper grill to the intercooler. No need for it now since my passat is gone... INTERCOOLER AIR DUCT (black plastic thing that directs air to intercooler) 3B0 121 467 - $8 OBO...
  14. Removing air duct intake

    B5 Garage
    I've already read the instructions posted by Rich P. about removing headlight bulbs. It appears easy enough to get this air duct out, but mine just won't budge. Maybe I'm not pulling hard enough. Do I need to remove the screw at the left that fastens into the fender? I would assume not. In...
  15. Factory intercooler exit duct mod pic

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just installed a louvered panel in my driver side wheel well. I was lucky with the placement, the outer bottom corner of the intercooler is line upped with a the panel just so. I know that this mod does not make much difference immediately. My concern is if the wheel well has enough negative...
  16. Duct tape on an A4 Cabrio?

    Anything Auto
    So I'm driving down the road today and pull up behind this. . . Yes, that is a brand spanking new A4 cabrio. I really like the duct tape holding on the manufacturer's plate. And where are the badges? I don't think he liked me taking his picture. Half a second later he went screaming...
