  2. Aren't lock nuts supposed to be crimped or deform or somehow lock?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I ordered some 8mm OEM lock nuts from Europa Parts (N90894601) for a downpipe replacement. The nuts are copper (or copper coated) and easily go on and off the OEM 8mm bolt which appears to be 10.9 zinc. Even when I tightened to 30ft-lbs as a test once I loosened the nuts they were loose, the...
  3. Has anyone used the newer B5 rear door lock mechanisms in the older (99) cars?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a rear right door lock mechanism that is not opening from the outside, even directly pulling on the external handle metal cable with my hand. I believe the part# is 3B4839016B, but I cannot verify without tearing the door apart (and that would take considerable time and swearing). My...

    Weird part issue. I received my replacement passenger (and driver) lock mechanisms for my 1999. I went to install the passenger side, and tried to slide the lock cylinder back into place, and no go. I look in, and there is no slot for a lock cylinder connection. I verified the part# matched...

    So sometimes I will unlock the door and I can see it physically pop up but the door does not unlock. I will generally have to cycle through locking and unlocking it a few times before the door actually unlocks. Is this a security feature and I just need to wait for it to time out or am I...

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2005 tdi wagon. Like many people, my door handle stopped opening from the outside.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is one of those things, where I wish I had a vag-com. I have just inherited a 99 1.8T. So door lock buttons or key fob wouldn't lock doors, so I replaced actuators in both doors, still have to lock and unlock manually. I replaced power mirror switch since old one wasn't working, nothing...
