  2. Opinions on front end clunk

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My right front wheel has the last remaining clunk (fairly minor, but annoying) that happens when going over bumps, including rough surfaces like brick paved areas. The shock and upper control arms have all been replaced. I suspect the lower control arms, but haven't been able to identify any...

  4. B6 Passat Front Crash Sensors

    Vag-Com and OBD11 Coding
    I was wondering if there's any trick to reinstalling a used crash sensor where the position was previously throwing a code? A new sensor went in on one side and I was able to clear the code without it coming back. On the other side I put in a second hand sensor but it is throwing the same code...

  9. 2000 Passat 1.8T - Front Passenger Tire area making a strange noise

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The front passenger tire area seems to be making a strange sound. Visually nothing appears to be wrong with the tire. At first I thought it was a flat tire a couple days ago, but that was not the case. The sound is constant and best heard at lower speeds, though I can hear it a bit at highway...
  10. 2012 Passat SE front rotor and pad replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Tried to find a video without success. Biggest question is the pads. The ones I've seen have a wired sensor attached, but I can't figure out if my car has any type of active sensor. I've crawled under the car and couldn't see one. The tools needed are basic, but want to confirm that a #7 hex...

  14. 1998 1.8T Front Wheel Bearing

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My son's car has a bad front (passenger) wheel bearing. The wheel is flopping around. Problem is, his pinch bolt is seized. Tight. And I have neither air tools nor a real blue wrench. I know we can get the axle out without removing the pinch bolt, though it isn't easy. And it seems we...
