    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I got a 1999 V6 GLX with push buttons for the a/c temperate controls. Lately, I am getting cold feet in the morning. - If I send the air/fan to blow towards the body and the feet, nothing comes out on the feet area. - If air/fan set to blow on the feet area, I can feel the air coming out...

  7. Motor comes up out of engine bay like 12 feet...

    B5 Garage
    Whenever I brake boost or stomp the gas in my 2002 Auto in D of course, the engine lifts straight upwards realistically about 4 inches. I know motors are supposed to torque a little bit like side to side, but I don't think they are supposed to lift up that freakin' high. Is it just bad motor...

  14. How many feet?

    B5 Garage
    I'm getting sick of tracking down vacuum leaks and CELs. How many feet of 3.5 mm vacuum hose to "rehose" the whole engine? How many total hoses in the '99 1.8t to replace (just to make sure I get every last one of those crusty, brittle buggers)? Should I get new clamps to hold them on with...

    I just bought a V6 GLX wagon (not all wheel drive) and have noticed that after I backup out of the driveway and drive forward about 5 to 10', there is a slight "click" that seems to come from the front wheel area. Is this normal? That is the only time I hear the noise and the rest of the time...

    Wow. That was rattling. On my way home from work, I came to a traffic light, about 6 cars from the intersection. I was headed eastbound, and traffic had just begun to flow in the westbound lanes (2 lanes in each direction). I was still not moving, as the westbound left-turn signal was still...
