  1. W8 from Hell

    New Member Introductions
    My main goal on this forum will be to save my passat w8 from the grasps of Satan himself. I bought and scanned the old boy with VCDS and he has some faults. If anyone can figure out what exactly is wrong, please message me or reply, I'll be going to the B5 forum after I post this.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have a 2005 Passat GLS Wagon, 1.8T AWM, front wheel drive, automatic trans, 165K miles, I purchased for my daughter. Had clicking on turns. CV boots broken.

  7. Stuttering sound at 1800-2200 RPM. What the hell is this...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys. Yesterday I posted about an issue I was having with my B5.5 drinking coolant. I've since topped up the coolant and will respond in that thread in the future with updates about that. But this might be a whole different problem. Around the 1800-2200 RPM range, the car has an audible...

  9. Weird vibration issue. Annoying as hell

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I have this weird vibration issue that happens whenever I gas or accelerate the car. It does not happen when coasting, cruising, or braking. I do have 15mm hub and wheel centric spacers in front and 17.5mm in the rear. I made sure they fit and they have no play in them when being mounted. I...
  10. The broken check valve from hell!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Full disclosure, I'm a total noob when it comes to working on my 03 1.8T AWM Passat! I've done a lot of research but tend to be a more visual person when it comes to my passat because, well, I just don't get it sometimes. Anyways, I switched out my coolant flange following a guide I found here...

  19. LED Help!!! Looks coold but annoying as hell...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I have installed LED turn signals and obviously they blink fast, I know I know put a resistor and it solves your problem. We dont really have an easy way to do that since there is no wire going straight to the bulb, goes to the headlight all together. What I want to know is if there is a...
  20. What the hell was Obama thinking?!?

    The Black Hole
    You can use the other thread to argue if it should be built or not. This is about Obama commenting on it. WTF was he thinking?!?!? It's a local issue that he can't win commenting on, even if he was right. Whoever failed to tell him to shut his yap about it should be fired.
