  2. End of the road

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, the YLwagon has done its duty as far as I am concerned, after us owning it since 1998. What started as a water pump change, progressed to include the timing belt service, new spark plugs, VC gaskets, and so forth. AndreasPassat helped me get the thing into service position, and also...

  4. B5.5 (2005) V6 "thunking" from front end on acceleration

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This has slowly been getting worse since I first noticed it more than 9 months ago. During acceleration, I hear and feel a "thunk" similar to running over a pothole coming from the front wheels. Often it happens on one side then quickly on the other. Usually this happens exactly once until I get...
  5. WTB: Passat Wagon Luggage cover end Caps

    WTB/WTT Section
    Hi All, I'm looking for replacement parts for my Luggage compartment cover in my 99 Wagon. The pieces on either end (Pictured Below) have broken so that the cover does not retract. There are studs on the insides of the parts that broke off and they are too broken to fix properly. If you have...
  6. Failed front end inspection, wheel play at 3 & 9

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Still kinda new to the Passat and especially the more complex suspension system. This is a 4 motion V6. Is this just an outer tie rod/ball joint issue or from the inner tie rod too possibly? And how can I be sure? Thanks!

  9. End of the line foy 2001 GLS

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    End of the line for my 2001 GLS Well, I think it is the end of the line for my beloved Passat. I rear ended someone a couple months ago because of a brake line failure and it has been sitting in my garage ever since. It was my daily drive for 13 years, I bought it with 50K on it and it now...
  10. Opinions on front end clunk

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My right front wheel has the last remaining clunk (fairly minor, but annoying) that happens when going over bumps, including rough surfaces like brick paved areas. The shock and upper control arms have all been replaced. I suspect the lower control arms, but haven't been able to identify any...
  11. My '03 Passat Wagon Blue (after top end engine rebuild) PICS

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks, In another long thread, I document the process to repair my AWM engine after a timing belt tensioner mishap. All is good now, with about 500 miles on the rebuild. 1.8T is running better than ever. It feels quieter, stronger and smoother after the valve job. I've received a few PMs to...
  12. End of the road

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Someone ran a light and I t-boned the other car with my W8. Uggh, I hate to see the car go but it's finished. To much to repair even though it doesn't look bad. Question is I know there are a lot of good parts on this car. Engine ran like a top and everything worked with the exception of a...
  13. Front End Vibration/Shudder While Under Load - Axle?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello! I have a 2007 Passat Wagon (2.0T, A/T). When we bought it, it had a bad front right wheel bearing, and there was this slight vibration/wiggle/shudder in the front end. I thought maybe the wheel bearing was that bad and was causing it. Replaced the bearing, noise is gone, shudder still...

  16. Possible end of transmission?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Lately I've noticed the transmission in my 08 Passat has been acting up. This is the non DSG transmission. The thing that scares me the most is that almost every time I shift into reverse there is a harsh thud I'm thinking hopefully it's the mounts? I tried shifting with the engine off and it...
  17. Noob Here, hit dead end on 04 Passat

    New Member Introductions
    Hi all. I am new to this forum but have benefited greatly from this site. I have an 04 Passat, 4-cyl, 1.8 Liter Turbo engine and I have worked on it quite a bit. I have a problem now and I am at a dead end. The issue started with a dead ignition coil (via rough idling, flashing CEL). When I went...

  19. Front End Brake Shake

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, My '03 2.8 4Motion had a vibration that seemed to be obvious as Discs out of parallel. I replaced them with EBC rotors and pads and it went away. Now after less than 5,000 miles it is back and getting worse. Calipers looked good and were sliding freely. Before I take it apart again, I'd...
  20. Couple issues after top end rebuild

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After a top end rebuild on a 1.8t 2003, as I was filling up the car with water, I got a steady stream leak, leaks when off and when running at same rate. The leak looks to be coming from behind the power steering pump and leaking down the oil pan. I cannot see the leak looking down under or...
