    Pulled from a 2003 B5.5 with Monsoon amp below the hat deck. I know that some HU say Monsoon on the cassette door and some do not (mine does not) - that may be the difference between the Premium 5 vs 6. Can the Premium 6 HU, pulled from a car with a Monsoon amp, work in a car with no Monsoon...

  14. No Oil to Cylinder Head in Rebuilt Engine

    B5 Garage
    So here is my saga: Decided to rebuild a 1.8T engine for my '02 Passat with 300k miles. The new engine runs but there is no oil getting to the top (cylinder head).

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Working on getting the head off of my 1.8L and got stuck at the three 17mm bolts atop the exhaust manifold. The inner one has less vertical room to get a socket on - all mine are too long. Is there a good tool for this bolt? Does anyone make a short socket with a swivel built in? Thanks

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an '03 GLS Wagon, and I cannot seem to get the rear center head restraint removed.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys. I had bent valves on my AWM 1.8T head, so had a local machine shop rebuild the head. The cost ended up being very close to the cost of a remanufactured head sold by Rock Auto. Looks like a decent deal at $1400, compared to the VW price of $2200. Looks like the Rock Auto offering has...
  20. 08 Passat headliner falling off, to the point it hits my head.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The headliner in my 2008 vw passat 2.0t has begun to sag, to the point where I can't look back when in reverse because it keeps hitting my head. I can't even have the windows open anymore because it blows it off even more and makes some of the old glue fly around. Any advice? Car has no warranty.
