    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok, so all my doors have this happening now, where they don't open on the first pull (mostly after initially unlocking). I know how each door has to reset back to its original position before the door can be re-opened, and about the indexed cable on the outer door handle, and have played with...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ...never heard/read of the door lock/latch mechanism failing (locked) quite like this. Think it's a Rockwell design. It's the '99 Passat. Regardless of door lock rod position, the passenger's front door won't open, from the inside or outside. Interior panel is off and about to loosen those...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    When I closed the left rear door of my 1996 A4 yesterday, the door would not close all the way and would not latch. Further inspection and comparative anatomy against the other side revealed that the latch mechanism is evidently supposed to be held in the upward position while either the...

    B5 Garage
    Like many B5.5 wagon owners in the U.S. and Canada, VW's tailgate "logic" (if you can call it that....) drove me bonkers - having the tailgate always "locked" was, well, beyond annoying. So, I set out on a research project - and, I found out how to change it! With these changes, you can have...
