  5. Door lock mechanism problems? It may just need cleaning.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all! Last month, I noticed that the driver's door lock mechanism was acting up on our '05 wagon. The door lock button would lock all but the driver's door, and no lights or buzzers would come on when the driver's door was opened. Sometimes everything worked as it should, but most of the...
  6. Looks like my MAF is shot. May I just disconnect it? (for a while)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yo there. Yesterday I was getting back from the grocery when my IDLE became pretty rough. The engine didn't stall but it was amazing how nuts the RPM gauge on the cluster performed. I pulled over for a moment and when I tried to get back to the street the car was completely out for power. As...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My control arm broke as i was coming off the highway. Luckily nothing bad happened. I was a little shaken up. It was totally my fault for not fixing it right away. I knew it was making sounds for awhile now. I'm a little bummed because the wife does not want me to fix it, and she wants me...
  9. VW may axe Beetle after 2018

    Anything Auto
    I don't know much about the authenticity of these reports. It could be that one journalist stated his opinion and others just copied for clicks, but allegedly, rumor has it that VW may kill the Beetle after its current production cycle comes to an end in 2018. A similar rumor came out about a...

  15. Would love some thoughts on two topics (and one of them may prove I'm an idiot)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, Last August I had a 2003 GLS 1.8T B5.5 wagon with ~146,000 miles fall into my lap for a song. It ran just fine, but the original owner wasn't much for maintenance (among other things, he'd never done the timing belt). So needless to say, I've had this car in pieces in my garage...
