    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion

  2. No disrespect intended, won't have Passat much longer...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, I'm actually joining at this late stage (having owned this B5 for a few years now) to sell my Passat to someone who understands these cars rather than just some shmo on craigslist or whatever. Anyhow, my question is how many posts do I need to have to post in the classifieds? Thanks.
  3. 2000 VW Car Alarm No Longer Honking.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my car alarm no longer making any noise. I've read everywhere online that it may be the doors/hood/trunk if they're not closed properly. I've checked all doors, hood, hood latch, trunk, and trunk latch. All close properly with no problems. I even tried...
  4. Cabin heater no longer working.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So the other weekend I noticed that my cabin heater is no longer providing any heat. The A/C blows super cold so I know the blower is still working. I checked both heater hose at the firewall to see if they both are hot, which they are, so I don't think the core is blocked. I have a feeling that...

  6. Turbo responsiveness seems to fade on longer drives

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've recently done a couple of drives at two hours or more, and I suppose it could be my imagination, but it seems like after the first hour and a half or so, the turbo doesn't seem to respond as much or as quickly, for instance while going up longer hills or pulling away from stops. I'm sure...

  8. Rear door speakers no longer work (monsoon amp problem?)

    B5 Garage
    I have a B5.5 Passat wagon with the monsoon sound system. A year or two ago, I noticed that the speakers in the rear doors were very quiet. I checked my fader and balance settings, and i found that the left one is about half the volume it should be and the right one is gone all together. My...

  11. Need a new wash mitt, and/or suggestions on how to make a sheepskin mitt last longer

    Wax On, Wax Off
    I usually use a sheepskin mitt but I find they start to fall apart after a few washes. I washed my car yesterday,a and had a difficult time drying because all my other towels were covered with the hairs from the sheepskin mitt, after I last washed them (I tend to wash them all together in cold...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    :banghead:? Spent months working specifically on the electrical connections following advice on the site. I thought I'd finished (stupid) all that I could manage. Now it won't start - it tries (cranks?). I connected simple AudiVW scanner but it will no longer communicate with 01-...

    Hey there passatworld. Trying to pick up a used half shaft for my awm manual. The place pulled both sides but I need only the passenger side.

    B5 Garage
    My remote start stopped working recently and I was investigating why and I found that the brake pedals sensor or something is no longer reading that the brake is not pressed in, the little light next to the shifter is not lit up and I can press the button in on the shifter and move it from park...
  18. Visor light no longer working

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The mirror light no longer turns on in the driver-side sun visor. Does anyone know how to change the bulb/battery in the visor? I'm assuming it's a quick and simple fix. Thanks.
  19. Holding the key turned no longer rolls windows down/up. Locks also hyperactive.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey you all. On my 2000 Passat, I used to be able to stick the key in the driver's side door, turn it, hold it, and all the windows would roll down, and eventually the sun roof would open. Great in the heat of summer. The reverse also worked when turning the other way. It stopped doing that a...
