    Hello all. I am new to forums so I apologize if I miss a step. This may be my first / last post. Just received a repair estimate for my 2010 Passat with a bottom line of $10,000. I’m here looking for advice on next steps.
  2. Is Passatworld the right place for American made 2012 and up Passats?

  4. Have I made a horrible mistake

    New Member Introductions
    So I've wanted a Passat for a long time, as it happened my wife and I were looking for a second car and found a nice 2003 5 speed auto Passat with 158,000miles. It has the obligatory hard downshift from 5th to 4th which I could live with until I replace the N91 solenoid. I didn't expect the...
  5. Major loss of oil, might have made a huge mistake

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Had a major issue this past week, cracked a hole in my oil pan which resulted in all the oil draining from the engine. Was only a mile from home so even though I was only a mile from home, I thought I could limp home(regret that now). Low oil light came on and major loss of power, wouldn't climb...

    B5 Garage
    So I may have to change my heater core and I just can't fathom on spending the cost of bringing it to a shop. Anyhow came across a couple vids that made it look as if a DYI is do-able. Anyone out there with experience that can add to this? www.youtube.com/watch?v=J40bceY8mF0
  8. Made a custom snub mount

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm entirely sick of the slop in my B5, that clunk drives me nuts. I dislike the stock bracket extra space, and wasn't entirely sure I wanted to use the 034 bracket and mount as it looks much smaller than the other available mounts. So I modified a stock bracket to fit a bigger mount! Need to...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anybody replaced their K03 with the new Borg Warner K03 that's made in China? Is the quality just as good as the original BW K03 from VW?
  10. B5 - B5.5 custom made coil spring compressor - feeler / interest generator

    Group Buys
    Currently working on yet another suspension refresh and also changing out the front struts on a B5.5. I am so sick of those cheezy assed spring compressors, slipping around the coil causing the spring to bulge out one side and the fact that the acme threads are always getting messed up because...

  12. home made stealth sub setup Rockford p2d2

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I've been thinking the sound system in my 2003 Passat with Monsoon was lacking a little. I already added a bluetooth setup via the cd changer port in the back but I still wanted a little bass, nothing crazy, just a little. So I started looking for a stealthbox but they were hard to find or...
  13. B5 glove box bought from Ebay, made in Germany? I don't think so.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought this lid on Ebay for my 1999 Passat and it flat out does not fit. The back of my original lid has trox screws holding the box together. This is made totally different, yet it shows it is the replacement I need. Am I missing something? Is this made in China...
  14. New to VW... most unreliable purchase I have ever made.

    New Member Introductions
    Hi all, I live on the east coast of Canada. I purchased a 2009 Passat 2.0T with 113,000km on it a month ago from a local VW dealer. Car seemed to be in great shape, I was told it was locally purchased and dealer maintained since day 1. Original driver was a serious VW guy and traded it in when...

  20. Passat B5.5 main beam headlamp bulb replacement made easy

    B5 Garage
    Like others on this and other forums I wanted to fit new main (high) beam headlamp bulbs to my RHD 2004 Passat TDi Estate, which had not been replaced from new, despite 170,000 miles! But on initial investigation the job looked near impossible due to the poor access, and reading the experiences...
