  1. 2008 B6 Passat power seat not working

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My driver's seat has an electric switch to adjust the seat angle. The switch is not working and the seat angle is tilted too far forward to drive comfortably. I've read countless posts on different sites and have deduced it's likely either a fuse (which I cannot find) or the switch itself (which...

  5. Electric Tailgate problems...

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    When I opened my wagon/estate tailgate last night the motor made a horrible noise - like it was not engaging properly but it still opened. When it reached the closed position the tailgate bounced and although you could hear the the mechanism trying to engage it was not latching - you could lift...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, I promise I've searched every corner of this site for my particular problem, but I've come up with nothing. I had the usual electrical problems, so I replaced the CCM and plugs/wiring. Everything now works, except the windows. I've replaced fuses 14 and 9, and checked the two underneath...
  7. Electric Steering

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    So I was going through some curves on the road today, and when turning in on one, the steering got VERY heavy, as if it was non assisted manual steering, with a grinding noise. It only lasted for half a second, but if someone had lesser arm strength they would have ended down in a river. This...
  8. 2003 VW Electric Drain? Looking for suggestions.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2003 V6. It has new within the last year alternator, battery, starter, ignition coils. Just replaced the manifold pressure valve or whatever it's called that changes the runner length, as well, but that does probably not have any relevance right now. The car seat to have a slow drain...

  12. Electric Radiator fan instantly goes to High Speed when AC turned on, AC icing

    B5 Garage
    2003 Passat GLX 2.8L Climatronic When I turn on the Air Conditioning, the electric/secondary radiator fan turns on and goes immediately to High speed. It stays at high speed until I turn off the AC. Also, I think this is related, the compressor does not cycle on & off once it drops to a...

I think I'm meant to be able to close it...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello, Recently my area experienced some record flooding, and my poor 08 Passat got completely submerged with water. It was a real mess to say the least but that's life. The car can't start up but I had the engine tested and they say it's still good so that's a plus. I had all the basics...
