  1. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    I have a 2012 Passat TDI that I bought in April. Love the car. One thing that is driving me nuts is if I leave my cell phone on the seat the seatbelt alarm goes off as if someone were sitting in the seat. Is there a way to turn this off or at least adjust the sensitivity?

    I took the nose off the car and pretty much drained all of the coolant out of the car except what was in the heater core. I filled up roughly 7 quarts of 50/50 G13/water and it appears that theres coolant everywhere except the upper water pipe (when I squeeze the upper radiator hose I just...

    Ok, I last used my 1999 V6 about a week ago (I don't use the car very much - maybe 1-2 times per week, 5-10 miles on average). No problems whatsoever. I started the car today, seemed fine, then I noticed after I backed up and drove 30 feet that the coolant light was flashing. I *immediately*...

    I bought B5.5 1.8T AWM I found on craigslist. It has a solid ABS and blinking BRAKE light on so I've been watching the videos on the ABS removal. I noticed something else. I have an empty space where the cars in the videos have something there. What is it? My engine seems to run fine so is it...

    Recently bought an 2008 Passat for my daughter. It did not come with an owners manual. Until a few days ago the display on the instrument cluster showed miles to empty, now it shows mpg. Can someone tell me where to change this setting and what over screens are available? Also, does anyone...

    My G12 is empty and I have to wait until tomorrow for the dealer to open to get more coolant. I just drove it home from work (and drove it a little hard) and when i got home it had filled back up with a boiling sounding liquid and was steaming off. It went back in after i turned the engine off...

    Hi, I am trying to hardwire my GPS into the car and I figured the easiest thing to do is use an add-a-circuit for switched power, connect to a new 12v outlet then plug in my GPS 12v adapter. Unfortunately I bought an ATO-size add-a-circuit, not a "mini" size. These will fit in the...

    This is the tip tranny that got a hole punched in it and I had to drive it home with fluid pouring out. Since I got it back it works fine, better than before, But it's a little louder than before. I can faintly hear gears whirring or something like that. Is it burrs on the gears or some other...

    Hey fellas. A couple questions and a couple pictures to go with them. I just bought a Passat about a month ago now, and I'm coming to learn it a bit better as time goes on. I've had several mechanically inclined people help me do some simple work on it and we've noticed a couple odd things...

    For the past couple days now, my gas gauge has been reading empty. When I start the car, the gauge moves maybe 1/32 of an inch up and stays there. The low fuel light does not come on, It just always reads empty. I checked and there is still voltage through pins 2 and 3 of the sending unit so im...
