I knew when I bought it that had been rear ended (hatch had been freshly painted, found a few pieces of glass etc.) Upon further investigation I found that the rear hatch never locks and the rear wiper isn't...

    I am having a hell of time getting my hands in there to reach the two screws. Is there anyone with some tips on reaching the screw closest to the engine? This is my third try. I can get the screw towards the firewall just fine.

    Hi guys, The chrome Tiptronic shift gate on my B5.5 is quite pitted and scratched. I was wondering if it's possible to successfully sand down the plastic chrome finish to make it look like brushed aluminum, like on Audis from several years ago. Thanks!

    I just got a B6 passat with hardly any options. Is there any parts I can buy to add a garage door remote? I've seen the older homelinks, but is there something out for a B6?

    So I was able to get everything to work w/o changing the rear gate latch motor. I put it all back together, checking the function every step of the way. So, it was all back together and I closed the gate. Guess what? IT DOESNT WORK!:mad: So, I open it with the key, flip the latch so the door...

    So I went out to replace the motor on my 03 GLX wagon. However, the idiots in charge of engineering appear to have placed the mounting screws on the backside, against the exterior skin of the gate. I dont know HOW I can get this off and get the new one on short of removing the entire mechanism...

    So I have the rear gate apart and lubed the "ball bearing" as suggested in the write-up by robc10x. I then plugged it in to see if the handle now works. HOwever, it doesnt. So, I unlocked the gate and started to open with the key when the electric switch mechanism activated. I tried it several...

    I just bought an 03 wanon GLX with 57k on the clock. The only problem is the rear tailgate. It will not open when I press the button on the gate, nor will the key fob open it. I must use the key to open it. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Thanks!

    Model: '07 2.0T Variant - United Gray Current Miles: 49444 We've been having trouble on and off for several month with the Rear Lift Gate on our Variant. It finally got frequent enough that we took it to our VW Dealer (Suds in Bloomington, IL) for service since we were sure it would...
  17. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Our '07 Passat Variant (37K Miles now) had a problem with the Rear Electric Lift Gate. It would sometimes stop about halfway during opening or close about halfway during closing. No this wasn't due to programming the opening height (read your manual) as we've always had it set for maximum...
