    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion

  2. Heater Matrix?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Uh Oh....looks like the heater matrix on my Passat may be leaking. My car is a 2001 facelift B5 (b5.5) Tdi . My pal is breaking / wrecking an earlier non facelift 1.8 20v 2000 model. I can have the matrix for free (or at least a few drinks) - will it be compatible? TIA JR
