    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, I'm trying to drain out my gas tank due to it having possibly bad gas. I saw how much rust was around the area. It's gotten to the point where the clamps cracked off and the hoses are completely tight on it and I can't budge the large cap off. I think water / snow snuck its way up...

    While I was cleaning the leaves out of the drains I realized that the heater tubes aren't even connected. The heater has never worked and I never really looked into it but this was pretty obvious when I noticed it. Is there some reason somebody would do this? I bought the car like this so I...
