  4. If you have to slam your door handle to open your door, read this simple fix

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Many moons ago, two mostly used doors, driver door and rear right passenger door, on my 2001.5 Passat won't open from outside after unlocking. I had to slightly slam the outside door handle after unlocking each time to open them. I thought the locks were worn out so I replaced them with locks I...
  5. The coolest car I have owned

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought my 02 1.8T sedan from a coworker six months ago. I got it cheap ($900) so I put some money into it right away. The plugged heater core in the middle of winter wasn't working for me so I got a bottle of CLR and slowly but surely got the thing blowing heat again. With 425,000 miles on...
  6. Passat B7 tdi 170 HVAC not working. Have I messed it up with VCDS?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    As the tile suggests, I have absolutely no HVAC, no cold air at all, just outside air (blower and flaps all work fine). It could be a few things I know but what I wanted to know was how do I check with the VCDS and how do I interpret the readings to diagnose anything. (there arent any fault...

  9. Have I made a horrible mistake

    New Member Introductions
    So I've wanted a Passat for a long time, as it happened my wife and I were looking for a second car and found a nice 2003 5 speed auto Passat with 158,000miles. It has the obligatory hard downshift from 5th to 4th which I could live with until I replace the N91 solenoid. I didn't expect the...
  10. Major loss of oil, might have made a huge mistake

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Had a major issue this past week, cracked a hole in my oil pan which resulted in all the oil draining from the engine. Was only a mile from home so even though I was only a mile from home, I thought I could limp home(regret that now). Low oil light came on and major loss of power, wouldn't climb...
  11. Does anyone have a recommendation for a mechanic in the Saint Paul/Minneapolis area?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking for a mechanic or shop with experience replacing a timing belt on a V6 Passat. If anyone has a recommendation for a quality mechanic that I can trust in the Twin Cities, that would be great. I'm in Saint Paul so a mechanic on the Saint Paul side of the Metro would be a bonus. Has...
  12. Should have known better

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My son and I recently replaced the driver's side half of a control arm job, and took care of the split CV boot while at it. I didn't bother to change the retaining clip even though the joint went onto the splines far too easily. So yesterday, my son calls to say he is stuck in the road with...

    B5 Garage
    02 Passat with the 1.8t. Picked it up as a project car, daughters first car we're working on together. Previous owner did the timing belt but something went wrong and valves hit pistons. I've pulled the head with the intent of rebuilding it. This won't be a performance build, going for daily...

  20. About To Change Timing Belt - 1999 Passat - What Would You Have On Hand?

    B5 Garage
    I am about to embark on my 1st timing belt change on a 1999 AEB Passat, 1.8t. The car has 223,000 miles on it and I doubt the belt has been changed in over 100,000 so it is a ticking time bomb. My order for this project consisted of the ECS Tuning Standard timing belt kit which is the belt...
