    hello Trying to install LED lights but the 4 pin connector is to big to fit from the low beam H7 socket to the high beam compartment. I was hoping not to have to cut off some of the socket (below red gasket) to make it fit. Is there a way to make an extension wire that is thinner?

    I apologize if there's already a topic about it, but i just finished this, and as I still am still in the garage wanted to share the "finding" with the fellow VW afficionados. My compressor was dirty as hell from the previous owner and was the last thing to be cleaned on the freshly reinstalled...

    I have an '04 AWM, and it uses the M16 Hub-to-axle bolt, the shop manual for which calls for 140 ft-lb + 180 degrees. After a warranty boot swap by Raxles, I went to put the axle back on the car during my lunch break today. (Pro tip: Get a 3/8" triple-square for the flange bolts; it's a lot...

    Looks like the intake flapper is now covered out to 10 years/120K miles. I put it with the cam follower and transmission hard shift extension letters. At the rate these letters are arriving, I expect the entire drivetrain to be covered to 120k miles very soon. :lol:

    Attached is factory information on the extended service interval option. I see no mention of this on the forums or in Bently service. Is this option not available in US? VW launched this in 2000 so I would have thought all vehicles after 2001/2 would have this. Basically it extends service...

    My four year old can buckle his own seat belt in my F150, but not in the Passat Variant. Do they make an extension that plugs into the female end and extends up toward the male end? I've searched but to no avail. Going on summer road trips, and it would be awesome to have him be able to...

    I ordered the JOM "Mean Look" hood extension for my B5. I was test fitting it and I have a hood release rod for my hood that gets in the way of the hood extension. I was wondering on how I would install this. Is there a custom hood release latch that I would have to order for this? Any help is...

    I know some people on the forum are interested in this extension, although many of us would love a one piece hood that extends over the front of the grille and partly covers the headlamps. If you look on eBay at auction number 190256513116 smk_tuning in the UK is selling this for 45 pound...

    I've looked around on how to extend the antenna for my keyless entry. My range is about... 20 ft. on a good day :thumbdown Only could find stuff on Jetta and GTI and thought they might work for my 2000 Passat. No such luck. If anyone knows how to do this on a B5 lemme know. Thanks
