fix

  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Figured I'd do something different. One issue with discussion boards and not just passatworld, its every discussion board, is nobody ever comes back to say how the problem was fixed (if at all). So here's a fix, at least one fix for the issue I had. 2005, 1.8T, 200K, runs fine, no issues...

    1998 B5 GLS Sedan Symptom: Passengers front window goes up and down at will, without touching the window function buttons. Wanting to know if re-flowing the solder joints will cure this problem? Could this be a problem with the window controller in the drivers side door? Changed out CCM...

    I have a newly-purchased 2004 Passat V6 4Motion with ESP with 126k miles, and it has the following ABS system faults: 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 66-10 - Not Matched - Intermittent 01044 - Control Module Incorrectly Coded 35-00 - - So I assume it needs the...

    Hi everyone! I have been a longtime VW owner (2000 Jetta TDI for the past 11 years) and do all of my own wrenching, so I am fairly well versed in Bentley manuals and VCDS/VagCom. I have a newly-purchased 2004 Passat V6 4Motion with ESP with 126k miles, and it has the following ABS system...

    HI, A few months ago I did this https://www.passatworld.com/forums/mobile-electronics/324858-07-passat-radio-nav-no-audio-amp.html#post2718224 but now my amp is dead again. This time power is .4 volts BEFORE the 3 way split mentioned in the link above. The carpet is wet around that cluster...

    Like many of you, my headlight adjustment ball and socket disengaged. I read the posts here about this issue and thought I would try to fix the problem. Although my headlights were aftermarket, I did notice that the adjustment screws are marked as to up/down and right/left. Also, while turning...

    Much like the '04 e46 BMW, seems like it's always another day, another part. O2 sensors, MAF sensors, cam chain tensioner sensor, lean turbo, lean cylinder or lean bank :rolleyes:

    After considerable thought, I decided to keep my TDI and have VW do their "fix" instead of taking the buyback. After all, I love my 2012 Passat and couldn't find anything I liked better--not even a newer Passat. At least not for what I'm willing to pay;) Problem is, between December 8, 2017...

    So I've had trouble with my door opening. After unlocking it, I would have to push in the door as I pulled the handle to open it. I was reading on the forums about the striking plate being moved around after the door has been slammed over the years. So as I was about to go mess with mine and...

    2002 V6 GLX 4Motion looking under the car, just in front of the drivers side rear wheel, I can see the black plastic gas tank is wet with gas that is leaking from the tank. I haven't done any more research than that, I haven't jacked the car up inspect more. Is anybody familiar with this issue...

    I've had a Passat about 3 years, and now it's time to do some work. Hoping to get some guidance on CV Joints. I've done the brakes, spark plugs, and all air filters,

    I did this on my 2007 B6 Passat wagon I fixed the problem of the total armrest not coming down by putting 2 squares of Velcro at each upper corner. This allows the cup holder section to stay attached the the back section to allow both to fold down (why it's made that way is beyond me) and...

    Today I started the timing belt job on our 02 V6 Passat that we picked up last spring. I know it's had it changed previously but I'm not sure when, so doing it to be on the safe side. Here's my problem, I'm at the point where you set the crank at TDC and attach the cam locking bar. Well, one...

    Many moons ago, two mostly used doors, driver door and rear right passenger door, on my 2001.5 Passat won't open from outside after unlocking. I had to slightly slam the outside door handle after unlocking each time to open them. I thought the locks were worn out so I replaced them with locks I...

    99 V6 Manual, 135,000 miles. So, I've been delinquent in addressing my obvious oil seepage. I've got the white smoke coming out from behind the engine, passenger and driver's side, which is probably those cam caps. I get the oil smoke smell in the cabin, like others. I can see oil on and...

    My 2002 V6 ATQ (191K 29MPG Highway 23 City) was due for state inspection so I needed to come up with a fix for my P0421 P0431 CEL codes. I planned to replace both rear O2 sensors, but first wanted to be sure this wasn't due to poor combustion performance or an exhaust leak. So I put 1 bottle...

    Hello guys, i have a B6 2006 2.0T. Long story short i broke my oil filter housing, dealership asked for 500$, so i went and got it online for 100$. The problem tho is that the new one i got don't have the orange valve (as in the pics) in it, so when i turn my car own and drive, the oil starts...
