    I posted about this in the 'what did you do to your B5 today' thread but I wanted to post up pictures also. Back in 2013 when I swapped in a replacement engine, I changed out many old and worn out parts, the master cylinder reservoir was one of them. About a month ago I noticed a hairline crack...

    So I've been trying to figure out to fix this issue without buying a whole new door panel. If you go to this video, and fast forward to 0:50, you'll see him start to remove the master switch assembly from the door control panel: After I pulled the master switch module, and looked at the...

    In the process of bleeding my brakes and flushing the system I attempted to bleed the clutch master/slave cylinders. I use a Motive pressure bleeder. When I opened the bleed valve on the slave cylinder I got nothing flowing out of the clutch lines. When I pressed on the clutch pedal it went...

    2003 Passat 1.8T tiptronics FWD with ESP I was changing brake fluid with Motive pressure bleeder. I let the reservoir fluid level dropped too low so air traveled all the way to my rear passenger side caliper. Afterward, I did two full flushes, but brake pedal is still very mushy. I searched...

    it appears that selling it just isn't in the stars. It's in good shape so I figure I'll fix it. Easier said than done... I took out the dash cover and can see how it attaches to the firewall. What I can't find is where it exits the firewall... or the slave... I figure if I'm gonna replace one...

    Gentlemen- Normally I would browse Zine or Vortex, but this is Passat specific. I've heard of the nightmares we encounter getting air to leave rear lines. I'll start by saying, this an 03 AWM 1.8t Auto Trans. Last weekend a friend and I were going to mount a tire to a reman rim, and I had...

    I am slowly trying to fix or replace parts on my Passat that are warn out and/or needs replacing. Currently I am looking for a new dome assembly that was cracked to hell way back when I got the car. The only problem is, all the parts I can find on ecu are the wrong ones. They are all either for...

    I may be a f*cking idiot, but where is the master cylinder located on the B5.5 wagon? Obviously I have a 5spd, and yes I have changed out countless master and slave cylinders on cars. I pulled up the plastic rain guard in front of the windshield and saw the brake fluid reservoir...that's a...

    Looking for a little help on selecting the correct master cylinder for my car, 2002 ATQ. I keep finding masters that are listed as either ATE or Lucas, how do I determine which I have? Another site I came across listed either new or old style, again, not sure which would be appropriate for my...

    Switch cluster drivers door. 2003 Passat Wagon. 2 problems. 1. Drivers side door window switch will only go down if button is pressed all the way, and of course, that causes it to go ALL the way down. Only way to stop is to pull back up on the switch. Does this mean the switch is bad...

    I have 2006 B6 Passat.....I noticed you do not have much mods for the 3.6 FWD. I like the car, I like the power the car has but I was what else you can do to get more power of the car besides basic bolt ons and chip. I do not want boost it, more like naturally aspirated. The R32 has a 3.2 motor...
