    This thread may be something like a follow-up to my MFSW Retrofit novel which may or may not have a nice ending. Whatever. A couple of weeks ago, while fighting with the i-System module, I could not avoid staring at my door cards which look TERRIBLE. These doors were kinda rebuilt back on 2007...

    Good evening gentlemen, After lots of digging, searches and googling around I finally took the courage to proceed this update on my car. Here are the details about the vehicle, the radio and of course the main goal: 1998/99 AEB 1.8T Sedan: No Cruise Control, just the regular switch for turn...

    I really enjoy my 2012 passat purchased new. Everything but the road noise. It's a loaded v6 sel premium that passes through an incredibly large amount of road noise to my ears. If I had good hearing I am sure it would drive me further crazy. So. I started looking into what it would take to hush...

    Hi everybody, I am driving a 2002 VW Passat and facing the repair of the air condition system. The damn thing won't cool the car anymore, which is getting pretty annoying. Florida weather+black leather seats+nonworking AC = not so comfortable :( Driving naked and with all windows down is an...

    My wife's '03 V-6 Passat will occasionally have it's CEL come on on a long trip. This has always turned out to be a Cat-out-of-spec issue. This last time, was attempting to check but the device will not connect to the car. I plug it into the OBDII socket but the display does not illuminate the...

    Hello all, B5, 1.8T I was able to remove 3 of the 5 broken exhaust manifold studs in the cylinder head. Two of them are now chipped off after attempts of extraction. As you can see in the picture, half of the stud is 1/4 inch inside the head. The tread is somewhat damaged but I will have to...

    Whomever the dumb Gunter was that designed the 1.8T and placed the filter where it is deserves his own special place in automotive hell, maybe driving a Trabant or something similar. There really isn't a good way of cleanly removing the filter without oil going every-damn-where is there? I...

    My 2000 V6 recently developed a coolant leak from the heater return hose quick connector to the engine block, and was getting worse by the day. So, having confirmed that the leak was from the joint between the quick connector and the fitting on the engine, I bought a couple of o-rings (I...

    I bought a notto se xenon kit for my 06 and I've literally installed turbos that were easier. Im lost. The "instructions" arent even instructions and I am getting pissed by moment. Does anybody know of a youtube video or something similar that shows you how to do it on an actual passat,not just...

    Sooooo... to make a long story short, a very good friend of mine is going through some rough times... personally and financially... her S.O. bascially ended up screwing her financially, cheated on her, left her upside down, and it's just not a pretty picture. She's driving a loaded '07 maxima...

    So Pson and I wanted to ruin our weekend. What better way than to work on the Passat. I got a set of tie rod ends from PZ, (Thanks PZ!), passenger side headlight, rear breaks, and the 3rd break light from the Autobarn (another Club B5 sponsor) at $600 less than what Three River's VW wanted for...

    Hi guys, I call upon your infinite wisdom once more. I'm having a pretty serious issue with my car right now. On a cold start everything functions FINE! No stutter, no hesitation, normal start. Once I drive whichever 3 - 4 miles I do and then attempt to start the car again it's impossible. I'll...

    Custom tail lights for 2001 sedan...is it an impossible task? Since owning my new '01 Passat, i have become quite jealous of the 2001.5. :banghead: it has all the good shizz. Chrome trim, dusted steel tach's, 20 more horsepower, & LARGER CUP HOLDERS! but one thing that i CAN change and is...

    Hey Everyone, I have posted about this one time a long time ago, but my problem is getting worse and I don't know the solution yet. Whenever filling up my '99 B5, the gas nozzle "clicks" off after every litre or so of filling. This is extremely annoying because it takes me like 10 minutes to...

    Considering the fact that we have so many threads about blown trannies, chronic electrical problems, and engine sludge, I thought I'd share a piece of VW lore with you. Although my wife and I have been married for well over a year, we haven't gotten around to consolidating our auto insurance...
