  3. I want a 3 page thread, nothing less !!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    FIRST CONCEPT: I was wondering the other day, the blue cap on the windshield washer tank is so hard to open & it gets in the way when you pour new stuff into the tank. So I figure you could refill it by wiring the pump to work in reverse and suck in new fluid from the sprayer nozzles on the...

  9. A front end noise that is more prominent when veering right, less when veering left

    B5 Garage
    I have read a lot on this subject withe the most likely culprits being CV axle or bearings but I was hoping to narrow it down with some road test diagnosis. The noise comes on at about 30-40 miles and is less obvious at higher speeds from there. At those speeds, if I turn the car slightly to...
