  1. What would you do? the love hate relationship with VW Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If you happen to catch any of my latest posts; between being an idiot thinking you need to remove the crank bolt to change a timing belt (forgot about the 4 small bolts), to buying a $300 Passat on a whim, thinking i'll either use it as a parts car or fix it eventually for the 15 year old in the...
  2. Cold air intake idea - Please don't hate me

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ok. So we all know how much we all hate the aftermarket CAI idea because "the car already comes with one etc etc", or short ram that "if anything you suck in the hot air" i've looked around on this forum (maybe not extensively but i did), and I have not seen anyone trying to guide the cone...

    Long time lurker here and I want to thank all the posters for the valuable information I have used/needed. I have been slowly getting a 2003 4motion back to top running condition. In the last year I have replaced a timing chain and both tensioner's, fixed the oil leaks, abs module rebuilt, rear...
  4. This is my rediculously unlucky love hate relationship with my b5

    New Member Introductions
    I own a 2001 B5(not B5.5) sedan. when i got the car it had oil pressure issues. I ended up putting rod numero uno through the side of my engine. Followed by a massive trail of oil about 4blocks long stopping at my garage. After i pulled the motor it definitely wasnt sludge caused. Clean as a...
  5. Damn, NY Inspection Sticker! I Hate You!

    B5 Garage
    Sometimes I just hate the hell out of living in NYC. I had my '02 Passat serviced and tuned up in Jan., drove it 14 hours straight, and have had zero problems since. My check engine light came on and the damn machine says something about the catalytic converter and a misfire error. So, now I...
  6. What do you hate the most about German engineering?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I thought my frustration today would make for a cool thread. Just like the title asks, what do you hate the most about the engineering behind our cars? This morning on my way to work, my Suction Jet Pump blew. I lost my brakes, had sputtering and jerking, and car eventually died when I...
  7. Damnit.. I hate getting work done...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just brought my car in to get the tires rotated and do a general inspection (brakes, hoses, belts, etc). I've always brought it to this one tire shop I've worked with for tire related work. I remember they always ask where the lug key is, so I figured I'd be proactive and grab it and bring it in...

  12. Man I hate my 2001 Honda Accord.

    Anything Auto
    While my A5 has been out of commission, I've been commuting to work in a 2001 Honda Accord that is my daughters car (but she's in Philly for 2 years). I have to say, going from the A5 to this makes me really appreciate my A5. 1) Power... um, none really. The gutless wonder of a 4cylinder with...

    New Member Introductions
    I am the new guy from Maine and I thought I would share some info If you know what it is you feel my pain if not then here is a quick tutorial Your CCM or comfort control module controls almost everything in your passat and VW placed it under the carpet on the drivers side(us cars). When the...

    The Showroom
    :P Don't worry, more pics to come. One of the threads on the passenger rear hub is stripped, so I decided to finish installation tomorrow. At least everything is mostly installed now... :wrench: Also it looks like there is a lot of wheel gap, because I took the picture after only one...

  17. I hate "all-seasons", should I buy all-seasons?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I've always been an advocate of running summer tires in the nice 9 months of the year, and winter tires in the winter. I have Toyo Observe winter tires on the OEM 16" wheels now. The 18" wheels are going on in a few weeks (hopefully) but the Toyo T1Rs on them are shot and I need replacements...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    made it through an ice covered day in ohio with no accidents or real problems. at the end of the day stopped to get gas, and my fuel door was iced over with some pretty thick ice (as was most of my car :thumbdown). so i hit it in order to break the ice and open it up, and well... ...hope...
  19. I hate this forum for ...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ... making me spend money like crazy the past two weeks on my Passat! :D First, I spent $500 on the APR tune, but why not, it was on sale for half price. 2nd, I bought a new DV. 3rd, I bought 3 coils out of necessity. 4th was a N75J valve for a great price, so I shouldn't complain. 5th...
  20. I hate the cup holders. How to remove them?

    B5 Garage
    Yeah, it's a silly topic, but I absolutely hate the setup of the cup holders in my B5. I recently got a really good deal and bought my first Passat, and although everything works perfectly mechanically, the one thing that doesn't is the cup holder. It always sticks out because it doesn't lock in...
