    I have a 2002 VW Passat V6 4Motion and I can't open my trunk. The buttons on my keys as well as inside the car don't work. They used to work but when pressed they would open the trunk but blow Fuse 14, so I stopped using the trunk, now the buttons do nothing at all. The manual key on the trunk...

    I've been trying to find information about how the auto transmission works on my 2004 GLX V6 B5.5, does anyone have a link to a transmission manual? There is a harsh downshift into first (only occasionally) and because it's not doing it every time i'm starting to wonder what is causing it...

    I was replacing my valve cover and cam chain tensioner gaskets on my '02 Passat 1.8L GLS and I'm almost 100% sure I dropped a 1" hex bit into what I'm assuming is an oil passageway right under the exhaust camshaft-side of the drive chain. I removed the cam chain tensioner and the intake...

    My threads are unaccessible. Unbelievably bad timing.
  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Something is seriously wrong with my car (AND PASSATWORLD - I'm locked out of my own thread!) Is someone available to help with critical timing belt question??? I went in to grease the dowels on the tensioner pulley and the tensioning lever. Didn't think I did anything to change timing, but...

    A search through the archives wasn't fruitful. Anyone ever successfully installed the B5.5 cowling and cover into a B5? Time for a windshield and I'd like to upgrade!

    My 2002 vw passat 1.8t came under alot of work recently. I had put a used motor in because the old one had lost all compression. I as well put a good used transmission in and brand new steering rack. Everything went good until I went out to test drive it. I took it down the road and it shifted...

    Hey Guys I have a 2001 B5 1.8t with a 5 speed. Bought this car with 265K on it in march and have put like 6k on it since - not any significant problems - runs great I love it for a commuter car. In the last like 400-500 miles though it has all of the sudden become hard to shift up to down to...

    Hi everyone, Last night, I pulled into a friend's very steep (25%) driveway, and when I tried to back out, I could not get the car to shift into reverse. Double clutching didn't help and I coasted down and shifted into the forward gears no problem. Today, I had a repeat of the problem, and...

    As mentioned, the car will shift down to neutral, but wont go further. When its running, reverse is fine, neutral is fine, stepping on the brake works fine to release the shifter out of park, it just wont go into drive. Feels like it wants to go, but will snap something if I force it. ( freakin...

    My son's 2001.5 B5.5 RR door window does not work, nor does the lock. There is power to the motor on the 1 red wire and on one other wire (yellow/red), so I expect the module attaches to the motor is bad. The ground is good. I do have a spare 2001 B5 motor, but I don't know if they are...

    Started looking for a car for my 15 year old. Wasn't looking to spend a whole lot and a project car was okay. I wasn't dead set on having to do major work to it but if I had to pull a motor or something that would be okay for the right price. Well today I brought home a non running 02 Passat...

    Just put new o-rings on the fuel injectors (dry as a bone now, thank you password community for the thread explaining what to do). So, fuel all over the engine bay averted for now. However after putting everything back together I noticed that one of the lines going to the fuel rail has brown...

    2005 Passat wagon tdi is going to get a gasser 5sp manual transmission for starters. Those of you that have the 5sp & v6, what rpms are you turning at 65mph in 5th gear? Thanks in advance.

    Hi All, I have been experience some weird problems with my transmission lately that I can't seem to figure out what would cause it. Here are the major two issues: Hard shift into third when car is completely automatic Sometimes when car is decelerating it begins to "kick" where it's like...

    I've had my 2008 VR6 4MO Wagon for 4 months now and it recently has started to shift into 5-6 gear at 30-35mph. Then when there is light pressure on the accelerator it lugs the engine at around 1000-1500 rpms instead of downshifting. It basically feels like its in one gear too high for these...

    Is this possible? Are the engines identical? I have a wrecked Jetta and I'm trying to figure out if it would be cheaper to put the motor from it into a Passat with a bad motor. Also! This forum is great thanks for having me!
