    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The gas pedal on my B5.5 is gets stuck in the floor mat when floored to depress the sport mode switch. I floored it today to turn on sport mode, then started the car, engine redlined immediately. Turned it off and noticed that the pedal was stuck in the floor mat at full throttle. Would be...
  2. Clicking/Brushing/Scrapping noise when drive, gets louder as I brake.

    B5 Garage
    So I was driving today and heard a like clicking or brushing noise. It sounded like it made a noise every time my tires did full circle. It was coming from the passenger rear side and I honestly haven't found anything useful on the internet so far. I had the brake pads and rotors changed about...

  4. Audi gets all the cool headlight designs....

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    You'd think some of that dna could pass down to the NMS Passat already?!. Might give the car a more cool factor over the Accord/Camry - look at the Mazda 6!! I should have to pay over $600 to get it either.

    The Showroom
    Hey all. :salute: Been a rough couple past years. Had my 4th child, lost my job, scraped by to pay bills for 8 months while I searched for a job, blah blah blah. Raised the car because it was making my boys car sick (lol). Stupidly sold off my side skirts. One of my winglets got taken out by a...

Seems weird because I thought I activated my account already. At any rate, here goes.... I recently...

  9. MAF gets stuck on high voltage.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So i had this issue where the car was running really rich on idle. I used vag com and saw that when you revved in idle, the MAF got stuck in high voltage as if there was a lot of air going into the engine causing more fuel to be dumped making the car run rich. So yesterday i replaced the MAF...
  10. Where Passat Work Gets Did

    Anything Auto
    I have this idea for a thread based on the Panorama feature of the new iPhone OS. Here's where I get my Passat projects did—those that don't require a garage. When I need a garage or driveway, I have to use my neighbor's or Polidori's or another friends'. Overall dimensions are...

  12. Scosche VWA-2B antenna adapter gets HOT!

    Mobile Electronics
    I put this adapter on my 99 Passat with an older Alpine head unit and that barrel gets really hot. My infrared temp gauge said it's over 140 degrees F. Is that normal? I could even smell hot enamel so I clipped the power lead, which means I pick up one station and maybe even two on top of a...
  13. Timing went while driving - it gets better

    B5 Garage
    I'm going to try to post the quick version first and hopefully get right to the point. This is a used 2002 with 71K miles. A week ago today, literally as I left the shop after a "complete vehicle inspection," my timing belt went out while driving. Bent valves, head's at the machine shop, the...

  18. SNKVNNM gets a black suite (pics)

    Anything Auto
    Well, it's actually the engine that got the treatment: I love how this all came out. Breather is also black crinkle but if you look closely, it does say "COBRA" instead of Ford Racing.
  19. HID questions - I know it gets old. lol

    B5 Garage
    So all of the HID guides or how-to's have been on the Passats that have fog lights down below in the bumper. However on my 2000 the fog lights are built into the headlight. I also think that my fog light and high beam are the same light. Is there a guide out there for this type of Passat...
