    I am in the process of refreshing a 2003 wagon with a non 4-mo AT. It has 140k miles and the ATF is black, leading me to suspect it has never been changed. I have changed ATF on Passats many times, so I know proper procedure. What I am wanting input on is the steps people think I should follow...

  20. Hood insulation - Long term results from removing it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have found a couple threads discussing the underhood felt insulation (that inevitably gets eaten by rodents) where guys removed it entirely. How has the paint on the hood held up after this decision? Any other ill effects that make the $100 price tag worth the cost, or is going naked an...
