    My trunk lid does release when I press the button but the lid stays in place: does not lift, does not pop open. It was like this since I got it in May, not sure how it supposed to work. When I lift it by hand I feel resistance, tried WD40 in places I could spot rust but that did not help much...

    So on Sunday I needed to get into the trunk on one of my Passat's. Push the trunk button on my FOB, grab the trunk lid and it won't move. Climbed into the car through the rear seats and the manual release doesn't work either. :banghead: I get out of the car and try FOB again. This time the trunk...

    I broke mine just now with a pretty loaded trunk carrying parts. Its the hard plastic piece that you usually grab it when you close it. It broke into a couple of pieces and was wondering if you can just replace the handle without the liner. Any ideas appreciated.

    I have had this problem whereby the boot lid won't stay shut, seemed to be particularly the case during cold weather. I fixed the problem for free so thought I would post in case it helps anyone else. The boot lid catch or lock is motorised to open and spring return to prime for locking. The...

    Hi, I don't know is it just me or there wasn't such a topic. So my question is that is it 1:1 swap to put B5.5 trunk lid on B5? Has anyone done that? Does anyone have pics with it done?

    Hello PassatWorld! I've got a strange electrical problem here so hopefully we can figure this one out together. I'm sure other people have had this trunk failure before. Issue: The trunk release button (down by gas tank button on driver side) suddenly stopped working a couple weeks ago. This...

    Got into a minor fender bender and need to replace the trunk lid and tail light assembly. Trunk lid is pretty dinged up and the rear bumper has bulged out a little from the side. Is there a DIY on trunk lid replacement and rear bumper removal? Thanks in advance for your help.

    So yesterday I noticed the rear jet nozzle of my 2001 Passat B5.5 wagon doesn't sprinkle any water. I also noticed there was water pouring from the rear lid.. So I took off the rear lid interior trim peace and noticed the small water hose was disconnected from the nozzle.. I attached it back...

    My original symptom was that my car would be dead in the morning. I took it to Autozone, and they told me that the battery / alternator appeared fine, but the alternator was roughly half a volt low. Nothing too crazy. I take it to the stealership [I'm in the Navy, and short on time or space to...

    Hi all, I just got some new leather for the armrest lid but I'm having a heck of a time getting the lid off the slide mechanism. The limited threads I found didn't help. There was one that looked promising but the last picture showed the lid already off the slider. And that's the point where...

    Anyone have tips for accessing the trunk lid auto-opening mechanism above the rear opening? My lid has recently started creaking a bit when opening/closing, and I'd like to lube it before it causes damage. I pulled the little plastic hinge covers and added some lube there but the noise persists...

    Hey! As the title says, I'm looking for a b5 trunk lid handle moulding piece. Preferably in silver, but colour isn't an issue for me at all. Chris
