  3. Interior dash lights out - Huh?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    About a week ago my dash lights all started to dim and then eventually died, all at once. This includes the speedo, and all of the gauge and whatnot, along with the center shift console. Turn signal lights and low gas and whatnot still all work (all the blue and red lights are out). I have a...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    i called the VW Dealer to ask how much is the 60K Mi. Tune-Up and the Service Advisor said $510.00 is base cost and if there are any additional parts they will let know.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I'm chugging down the freeway at about 70 or so and my left front corner light just flew off the car, taking the bulb with it. I had a look at the other side and it seems they just slide in, held in place with a pretty weak clip. BOO! So now I need either: A set of clear corners (pref) Or a...
  9. Rear license plate threaded inserts -- huh?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Apparantly the dealer where I bought my 01 sedan did something kind of non-standard when putting the plates on the back of the car. There were just some nuts that had been held on the inside of the trunk lid with masking tape. When I removed the license plate screws the nuts fell down between...
  10. DRL's in a 2004.5 --not the TFL pin? Huh?

    B5 Garage
    So I thought my first mod would be the euroswitch. Simple enough, and I popped it in with no troubles. I covered up the TFL pin, thinking I was being the good B5er and killing my DRLs. Well, it didn't work. After comparing the pins to the harness, the TFL pin socket isn't wired. Now what? Has...
