    New Member Introductions
    So I'm new to this forum, I was gonna post about my car and what I have done to it so far, future plans, and end with a question as that would seem to be the best use of one of my two required post in this forum before my tangible presence is proven and I am then allowed to frolic in the other...

  6. My 2000 GLS needed some love, so I'm gonna give it..

    New Member Introductions
    So about 3 weeks ago I came across a guy who was selling a 2000 Passat. After some talks and a lot of haggling I got the car for a 1k. IMO the car needs love and the problems it does have seem reasonably easy to take care of. I always wanted a car I could put some work into and this seems like a...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Am on vacation this week and want to change the control arms and front shocks (did the rears today, piece of cake), but how am I gonna get the bolt out which holds the upper CAs together? It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but the left side of the bolt is sheared off. I did it about a...

    B5 Garage
    hiya folks, Well, I'm at it again. In trying to avoid the extortionist charges over here in norway, I've been trying to replace a brake line. The 11' nut at the lower end of the line basically melted when i applied pressure - now I have zero chance of getting it open - here's a pic: The nut...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I got a flat and pulled over to fill it back up with a DC pump I keep in the trunk. When it was done there was a big bubble in the tire and I drove it like that for about 5-7 miles at 35 MPH till it blew. When I was putting the spare on I noticed that the top bushings on my newish control arms...

  20. Are 245/40/18's gonna rub on Eibachs or H&R OE's?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I really need a 245 tire to cover my wide-ass, soft ( breakable) wheels, but not if they're going to rub. And I really don't want to roll the fenders. I know that lots of you guys say that 245's rub, but I also know that a lot of you are much lower than I am (Eibach front and OE's rear), so will...
