  2. Lake Passat Floorboard.... or water troubles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    I am looking for input here. Has anyone heard anything about Hex Logic buffing pads and had anyone used them before? Is the quality just as good as the Lake Country pads?

I decided to see if I could identify the source of the water, this time better than my last attempt. Pouring water down the sunroof drain showed water coming out under the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The floor in the rear passenger side of my 2005 Passat TDI Wagon has been wet for probably a couple of months. As my life has been a bit nutty, I didn't have time to really explore it and was taking turns blaming it on my wife and daughter. After the last set of rains we got here in NY last...
