  2. Anyone have the ECU pinout image?

    B5 Garage
    Title says it all... Narrowed down my issue in the car to needing a VAG COM to reset the TCM out of limp mode. Didnt need any sensors etc. I have noticed some wires were spliced or something near the ECU harness. I need a pinout diagram so I can trace the wires down and track their location...
  3. What happened to this timing belt? (Image included)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Removed my timing belt this weekend on my 2.8 V6 to eventually get to the cam chain tensioner gaskets and found the belt looking like this. A friend and I changed the belt (along with the water pump/thermostat/idler pulley, it came in a kit) only about 7,000 miles ago. However, I noticed the TB...

    Hello everyone, I own a 2003 Passat GLS and I have an issue trying to figure out what a part is called. It is currently broken and when I noticed it for the first time, I noticed pressured air blowing out of it. it's like some type of coupling connecting to a hose on both ends. If anyone knows...
  5. About using image host vs attachment manager

    New Member Introductions
    I decided to read the rules before posting pictures and it looks like we are asked to use photobucket. Not a problem. But there is an attachment manager in the text boxes too. Is it okay to use that for car pix, or is it just for custom smileys, etc.? Or are we not to use it at all? I never...

    We should have more friends, less enemies. Therefore America should be a bit safer.
  8. Mechanical seat fail, repair or replace (100k image)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Seat is loose and freely tilts back and forth; I guess a picture explains it best, this is the rail the seat normally rests on (apologies for the grime :icon_eek:) This is a 2000 B5 GLX; I am looking for advice as to bring it to the shop for repair or replace the seat. I found a 2002 seat...
  9. Image request!

    The Showroom
    I'm looking for pics of HP Evos on B5 Variants. HP and EVO are both too short to search for. How about a pic on an A4 Avant? I have my eye on a set of these locally and they could go on either of my cars.... Just want to see some fitted before jumping on it.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  12. Passat image gallery site?

    Anything Auto
    Hey everyone, I was thinking about a possible idea to create a passat gallery site. Each person could have a profile page for themselves, and people would be allowed to browse the pages. I have a pretty good idea in my head what I would make the site look like, but Im looking to see peoples...

  14. Oil analysis (large image warning)

    B5 Garage
    Oops. Sorry. I had originally posted the results of my Blackstone Labs oil test and couldn't for the life of me figure out what the deal was with the high Magnesium reading. Turns out it's a detergent agent in the oil. Much ado about nothing. Nothing to see here. Please move along. Unless...

  16. VW brand image???

    Anything Auto
    When the Phaeton and Touareg (sp?) came out auto magazines wondered if VW was moving too far upmarket. I was just wondering how many of you felt the same way. I have always considered VW, while for the most part, an affordable carmaker, but fairly upscale and something to strive for. Just...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Its a little covered in color sand wash and buffing compounds but im glad to have it back from the painters. Not to mention the warehouse full of parts that fill all of this up.
