    This has slowly been getting worse since I first noticed it more than 9 months ago. During acceleration, I hear and feel a "thunk" similar to running over a pothole coming from the front wheels. Often it happens on one side then quickly on the other. Usually this happens exactly once until I get...

    Hi all, So the car in question has just over 200,000 miles. Amazingly the car still has the original clutch. There is no slipping; there is chatter sometimes when engaging the clutch, but the clutch looks to be working well enough. About 3 months ago it started to be really hard to shift...

    Still kinda new to the Passat and especially the more complex suspension system. This is a 4 motion V6. Is this just an outer tie rod/ball joint issue or from the inner tie rod too possibly? And how can I be sure? Thanks!

    Was living in Texas when I acquired my first B5.5 wagon, so car had to carry front and rear plates. Here in ancestral Jawja, and in SC where this one originated, front plates are not required. The Passat sure enough looks better without that thing on there, body colored thought it may...

    On both sides of the car water is somehow getting between the roof and the headliner, mainly around the sun visors. Heavy rain is certainly enough to make this happen, but over a long enough period of time, light rain is also sufficient. The two front sunroof drains work well enough that water...

    Hi All, I search this forum and googled but I haven't found the torque specs for my 2004 Passat GLX V6 2.8 FWD- Front Driver's CV Axle. I bought new bolts for the inner and a new 17mm bolt for the outer and I'd want to torque them down correctly. What I found this far in existing posts was...

    Hey All. My daughter got her license earlier this week so I'm getting my old passat ready for her. (2004 V6 4motion) Yesterday was 4 new tires and today was going to be new pads. Been doing my own brakes for 30 years and never ran into this. (first time doing a VW though) The brakes were...

    ...never heard/read of the door lock/latch mechanism failing (locked) quite like this. Think it's a Rockwell design. It's the '99 Passat. Regardless of door lock rod position, the passenger's front door won't open, from the inside or outside. Interior panel is off and about to loosen those...

    My car sounds like I'm riding on scalloped tires, but no vibration. What could it be? I replace both front wheel bearings, all 4 tires and front axles within the last year. Again, sounds like, but no vibration. Been living with this annoying sound for a few years now. Definitely coming from...
