    B6 Garage
    The bolt to the hinge on the left side of the lift door / tailgate / hatch on my 2008 Passat wagon sheared. I have been using the tailgate and just making sure I apply pressure when closing it since that is when the pressure seems to be exerted and when it sheared. So.... How does one replace...

    B5 Garage
    so I bought a 2004 wagon recently, got a great deal on the car runs and drives great.

  8. Rear Hatch Fuse

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I got my wagon back from the paint shop after having a new hatch installed under the corrosion warranty and now the hatch will no longer open neither with the key button or the door switch. The paint shop claims it is probably a broken wire in the harness and since they are a paint shop and not...

  13. Rear Hatch Glass Replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I came out today to find my rear hatch glass broken on my 2002 wagon. The glass place wants almost 300 bucks to replace it. I can get one from my local salvage yard for 45 dollars.

    I've got a 2004 W8 6MT wagon that the hatch has frozen shut on. I've done a fair bit of reading on the hatch and actuator issues that folks have, but nothing seems to quite fit the bill for what I'm experiencing... so hopefully someone might be able to help me here. So - I opened the hatch...
  15. 2008 wagon hatch button problem

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The button to lower the hatch on my '08 Wagon works sporadically. Sometime I can push it over and over and over and the hatch won't lower, so I close it manually. Next time I hit it once, and it closes. I assume it's a flakey button. How tough is it it to replace? From what I gather, I...

  19. Rear hatch not unlocking - B5.5

    B5 Garage
    Hi all! I am having a strange issue on a 2002 B5.5 wagon. The rear hatch will work fine with the key. At least I assume it does. With the key, you can open a locked hatch - it pops open and you can lift it. If you close it, you must use the key again to open it. It does not stay unlocked...
