  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2004 Passat GLX V6 5spd. One thing I have noticed lately is that the engagement point of the clutch can vary, sometimes during the same drive. Normally, the clutch starts engaging 1.5-2 inches from the floor. But occasionally I notice it engaging much faster - like within .75-1 inch...

    2001 B5 GLS, 96K miles. Instead of smooth and easy operation (as on the other three doors), the driver's door interior door handle has become rough, and requires a bit more "pull" to operate. I wouldn't say it feels gritty, but it isn't as smooth as it used to be. I presume something in the...
  3. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Test drove an B4 yesterday and the car was in excellent/mint condition so I'm interested to buy this car. BUT... one thing that hit me was that the steering was extremely light and vague so the car handling was very BAD and nervous on the road. :thumbdown The steering felt unresponsive and...

    I've never liked the poor brake feel on our Passat. We'll be replacing pads & probably rotors, and wondering what the favored pads are for street performance. I'm looking for better feel & sense of stopping power (sensation that you have to push very hard on the pedal) I don't care about dust...

    Caveat: I'm newly registered here but I'm a long-time lurker of the forums and I think I've read just about every clutch thread there is. I think my question(s) are unique but apologies if I've missed anything obvious. I've got an 01 Passat B5 with a V6 30v that I've owned since it was new...

    Hi guys. I had my tie rods replaced back in June. I don't drive the car very often, so I've put very little freeway miles on it since then. Yesterday, I was on the freeway and it felt like the wheel(s) was/were riding uneven - there seemed like a wobble at higher speeds (>50), and it was...

    If I have missed something so blatantly obvious than please feel free to flame away. My passat wagon is on some 19" HRE's and kW V2's. With the 19's I have plenty of clearance to go lower. Problem is the rear is as flush as it gets and I cant go any lower without somehow adding a little negative...

    Friends, Help me with some advice. I purchased my 2009 Passat 2 years ago as a CPO vehicle. For the entire time that I have owned the vehicle the front passenger seat manual lumbar control knob does not seem to do much when rotated. You can feel only the slightest difference in your back...

    Have a 2008 Passat 2.0T with 76k. From a cold start (morning), starts fine and drives ok, but when i got to about 45-55 cruising speed it was really rough. Cant really tell if its transmission or engine. When the car warms up 10-15 min, it rides smooth. Had a few different check engine...

    01 b5 1.8t Upon acceleration, i feel a tiny shake / flutter / hesiation/ pulsing in the seat, pedal etc. All the time, if i settle into a sweet spot it mostly goes away, happens at all speeds. Also seems to be downshifting a little hard, no bangs or clunks but a tiny tiny hard downshift, kinda...

    So after my ignition problems I've been noticing a problem with the clutch. It has about 30,000 miles on it to date. When I start from a stop the bite point feels very high and if I'm trying to get going decently quickly I can have my foot completely off the pedal before it has fully bitten and...

    G-oil high viscosity at 150C - Bob Is The Oil Guy Green Earth Technologies Yep that's right, BEEF TALLOW! I'm not one to go too crazy on save-the-earth gimmicks, but I have run biodiesel in my TDIs because it's better for the environment and better for the car. This G-oil seems promising...

    Yesterday, we got our first winter storm and I got a call from the wife that the steering felt really weird when transitioning from the icy packed sections to bare pavement. When I got home, I drove it and found a serious dead band of steering on ice, but lots of stopping/starting traction...
