    2003 1.8T 139K miles. I flushed the brakes last week as I'm pretty sure it's never been done before. Now I hear a scraping noise after braking (on both fronts). The noise goes away above 20 MPH. I figured the new fluid didn't allow the calipers/pads to fully retract. I decided to replace...

    I have changed the water pump on my AEB and upon getting everything back together I noticed the water pump pulley and the power steering pump pulley are not flush. The water pump pulley sits a little behind the power steering pump pulley and causes the belt to not sit right and rub against the...

    Just completed the heater core reverse flush of my wife's B5.5 2004 Passat. :D I think it took longer to put the jig together than it did to flush out the core. The heater is now blowing HOT!!!! Thank you for passatworld.com. There was some sediment and it took about 5 five gallon buckets...

    First post. My parents gave my son their old 2000 Passat for his get around car. 110K miles. Absolutely no heat at all. I mean ice cold air. So of course we dug around the forum and on youtube and saw all sorts of solutions using CLR, air compressors, jet washers etc... We finally got...

    Living in NJ with winter approaching , and "ok" heat ( I get like 118 degrees from vents at cruising speed, at idle gets very weak, and takes a long time to attain that) I decided to do a flush yesterday with outside temp around 65. I used the CLR & air / water gun tool. Poured in the CLR and...

    I just got a 98 golf gl with 221,XXX miles on it. Engine runs like a champ but I made the mistake of opening the coolant reservoir while the engine was still hot. Coolant splashed everywhere and I noticed it was a burnt orange color so I'm thinking of taking the tank out, cleaning it, refilling...

    Hello everyone, especially members well versed in the mechanical and troubleshooting aspect of the B5.5. About a week ago took one of the most stupid decision of my life, used a sealer in my B5.5 in order to prevent any small radiator/cooling system leaks in the future. (advice seen in a video...

    Is it a PITA to do this? I've seen some write-ups but mostly was on the v6's. I have a new gallon of g13 coolant. my coolant in the car is dead and I would love to replace it. Do I really need to remove all the hoses or can I drain the rad and fill with water drain and fill with water a few...

    Hey, purchased my Passat B5.5 a few months back now I am going to have my first synthetic oil change since I have owned the car. I did have a quick oil change after I bought the car but I know it was not VW spec oil. Should I have a Flush additive before the change? I want to be sure to start...

    Hello all, I'm a new passat (2002 GLS 1.8T B5.5) owner and forum member, and I first just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts here. There has been a lot that I've taken from this site in the 3 short months I've owned my passat. Anyway, long story short, I bought the car at an amazing...

    I'm sorry if I may sound naive-- I had a problem with a coolant leak and I ended up tracking it down to my heater core. It wasn't leaking into my car, but rather pooling under my battery behind the firewall and draining intermittently. I ended up bypassing my heater core altogether. My...

    anybody know if the tranny has a separate refill port, or is the only way to refill tranny is through the overflow port. I drained 4 quarts, but could only get 2 quarts of ATF back in through the inspection port. After I cycle through all the gears, should I leave the engine running while I...

  19. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I need to flush the system and have read many suggestions on how to do this. Looks straight forward but no where can I find which reservoir port is the intake port, After looking at diagrams I am guessing the it is the smaller port toward the firewall but would like to have confirmation that I...
