    Didn't think I was new but maybe new computer this year has done something. Any way, in the past couple of weeks a strange noise has developed in the passenger foot well between 20 - 22K rpms. 1999 1.8T GLS manual AEB 160K miles. Noise developed after i did a full monty to replace TB tensioner...

    Hi, I have a 2005 1.8t 4motion passat that I recently had a timing belt break on. I was cruising along smooth when suddenly the timing belt snapped and instantly bent all my valves. I got the thing home and pulled the head, did a valve job and got it back in without any major issues. When I...

    Fateful day last fall (about 7 months ago) my window regulator went. Tired of paying my mechanic for various problems over years with my 2003 Passat, I decided to repair window myself. Followed Utube video and successfully replaced the window regulator. However, about week later I noticed the...

    I just got a set of MSW Type 14s for my 2018 Passat SE. They look great but the center caps look dreadful. I'd like to get VW branded center caps. They are large - they measure 74mm across on the outside, about 71mm inside. Does anyone know a VW part that till fit? Thanks in advance!

    Greetings! I searched on this topic, but didn't get any good answers, so I thought I'd start a thread. The basics: 2003 GLX 4Motion Wagon, automatic transmission. The question: The wood trim on the inside door handle came off in my hand the other night. Any guidance on the correct adhesive...

    Hello, Has anyone experienced frost/freezing on the interior of the windows on the passat v6 sedan during cold overnight weather? I dont recall this happening last year and the car was parked outside the same as now. Any ideas how to combat or if there is another underlying issue? Thanks all

    Still working on my 2002 1.8T 5spd with 200k miles. The head is off and getting re-done (worn exhaust guides, bad cam lobe, and new valve seals) and figured I would pull and check the turbo (still original) at the same time. Bought the Gpop rebuild kit and seemed like a pretty easy job. Found...
  10. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion This happened ever since I replaced some PCV parts so I'm assuming I nocked a wire somewhere. The battery is fine I think. Immobilizer? I'm not sure... Third time its happened so I'm sitting here with my battery disconnected to clear codes and see if it fixes it...

    B5.5 Passat GLX 4Mo Wagon So maybe I like to sleep in my car for car camping sometimes. Fold down the 60 of the 60/40, lay out a sleeping pad, and it beats any flimsy tent. Getting in from the back is easy. Getting out is a different story. That story is, rear passengers door after some yoga...

    Heh-Lur! I own a 03 Passat wagon and my rear hatch/trunk wont open from the inside when I hit the trunk switch on the door. I always have to turn off my car and open the back manually with my key which is annoying as heck especially after I've driven my car and I have to immediately remove...

    I disassembled the driver's door, to remove the lock module and hopefully improve its operation by resoldering the internal circuit board. The lock module is now reassembled and back on the metal door panel, which is itself now screwed back in place onto the door. (Yes, I changed the nylon...

    Hey everyone, so I just bought my 2001 Passat 1.8t manual transmission with ~145,000 miles a few hours ago and I'm apparently an idiot because I never checked the coolant or looked under the radiator cap. I checked the oil and it was a little low, but there wasn't any signs of a leak or any...

    For some unknown reason, one of my headlights has got a coating of stain inside it that blurs the light. Just curious as there is any trick to remove the stain layer. I hate to replace the headlight itself. Thanks.

    Looking for a passat lowered with springs on 19's. I heard it looks lower than mine does on 18's. Im lowered on H&R springs, thinking of coil overs, i just want to barely tuck tire.

    The fan on my car has been either on or off for a while. I thought it could be the resistor on the blower motor but the problem is it either works on every setting or no setting. Also the recirc button will work sometimes and not others as well. I have bought a replacement climate control module...
