    New Member Introductions
    Hi Everyone, So today i went to pick up my driver side window on my 2012 Passat SE by just pulling the button once like i normally do and for some reason it didn't go all the way up i had to keep holding it in order for the window to close. I've been reading a bunch or forums and ran across the...
  2. Problem of the week (it's always something, isn't it?)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The tabs on my pass side front marker light were busted and so the assembly was popping out. I bought a new one on eBay, was putting that in, changed the burnt out bulb, got her all buttoned up and tested the lights. Nothing. All four marker lights on the bumper tub strips don't do a darn thing...
  3. Engine isnt turning over

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I have a 99 automatic wagon with an AEB 1.8T. I'm baffled as to why the engine will not turn over. 3 months ago I cracked the oil pan on a speed bump. So the car was sitting for the past 3 months in the freezing cold. Fixed the oil pan last week jumped started the car. Ran fine. So...

  6. The heater isn't putting out hot air...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I've got a '07 Passat Wagon 4Motion 3.6L auto. for quite a while, the heater has not been working optimally. My daughter's '00 Honda Accord blasts heat infinitely better. Also, if I put my hand right above the ash tray, that dash area is quite cold. Any thoughts on what may be going astray...
  7. Left Blinker isn't Working?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I was driving the other weekend and I flipped my blinker down to turn left. The left green indicator arrow on my dash blinked very quickly about 2 times then stopped, and I heard the "blinker sound" quickly coming from the hazard switch relay. I thought to myself that it must be my relay...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello everyone! I have searched religiously and have tried just about everything everyone has suggested on here for my problem. I have a 2002 1.8 and it keeps throwing codes P0203 & P0303! The worst is in the morning, it starts pretty rough, will sometimes smooth out and when I drive off the CEL...
  11. Why isn't there an Audi or an A4 forum?

    Anything Auto
    I mean, even one for all generations, the Bx cars share so much, even a generic Bx forum might help other cars that are built on the platform (Seat Exeo/Skoda Superb), and no, I don't consider the "audi news" forum as counting...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well I hope nine of ou ever have to have your seat stop working when your mom takes your car for a drive how is like 5"1 and you are 5"11 and can't put it back for your legs.

  13. Just did first oil change on my Passat 1.8... it's impossible not to spill isn't it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  14. Isn't there suppose to be a Black Nipple here? (Nipple check)

    B5 Garage
    bought some CA's from ECS Tuning. Febi-Bilstein to be exact. My 2 Front Uppers (Curved) don't match. Please verify i'm not losing my mind, and its a mistake on either Febi's end or ECS's or me? According to ETKA OEM VW/AUDI P/N's 8E0 407 510A = Front Upper Right (Curved) 8E0 407 509A = Front...
  15. Rear Door locks now -- but isn't really locked....?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just did the DIY door lock "repair" because the right rear door lock had not been working via the central locking. If manually locked/unlocked it was perfect. So after doing the DIY repair and reassembling the central locking actually operates the right rear door lock! However: after...
  16. Non-Fouler trick for Cat Codes, why isn't it working?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    And I don't mean why the ECU code isn't going off, I mean why don't the non-foulers fit on the O2 Sensor?! For those of you who don't know about the 'trick': http://forums.evolutionm.net/3343564-post1.html and...
  17. Why isn't the GT2X a 2560?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So something I've often wondered is why on earth didn't ATP use a BB 2560 cartridge on the GT2X instead of the oil cooled, journal bearing 2056. I realize that it may have brought the price of a GT2X up a bit, however it would have been a better matched cartridge for someone who wanted to have a...

  19. B5 Sunroof Isn't Working

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I checked fuse #30 inside the car (supposed to be the sunroof fuse and it looks fine), I even switched it with my 20amp radio fuse and still no success. The sunroof won't work at all... is there anything else I could try or is the motor bad for sure?
