    I have a 2004 B5 1.8t. Early this summer I had to have the heater core replaced. I was driving on the interstate and bam, mist starts coming out the vents. It was a hot day and the air was on. First the dealership replaced a coupling to the heater core. I made it 20 miles and mist started again...

    My A/C is not blowing cold air until about 10-15 min into my drive most times. I can hear the compressor come on and then blows cold air. I replaced the compressor less than 1 year ago. Im thinking maybe its a relay or electrical problem and not the compressor. Once the compressor comes on it...

    I watched a few videos on youtube, and it seems like very simple job. Each turbo has 2 bearings and 4(?) seals. rebuild kits are pretty cheap. I bought a dead 04 Passat today 1.8T and getting ready to fight it.:lol: Where to download service manual?

    I checked the refrigerant, but it's ok. I start the car and after running and blowing cold air for a while, the cold air stops. Air still flows, but it's not cold. Then after another 15-20 minutes, it's starts blowing cold air again. Any leads will be greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

    I purchased a "GoPro" video kit back in early October. Had time to mess with it and decided to post a short 5 minute vid. of me leaving Alices Restaurant at the junction of Hwy 84 and Hwy 35. The original footage is actually good quality but the transfer to MPEG2 really blurred it as you'll...

    Even at the min setting, the volume is a bit too loud. With VagCOM, is there a way to set the volume for '00 Passat GXL Tip Monsoon radio?

    Some of you know that the Passat is a workhorse in our family. They tell me "Fill the Panzer with stones" and I'm on my way ... We live in a rural area near Hamburg and the only way to our house leads past a farm over a dirt track. Thus, lowering or buying nice rims - or even cleaning her...

    I have had oil-like leaks from near driver's wheelwell for months now (anytime it rains), and I've yet to determine whether it is PS fluid, oil (from VCG leakage), or other. Did some fluid checks today, and need some input. 1. What would be the consequences of the power steering fluid being...

    I have a 00 Passat 1.8t 51K that is driving us nuts. :mad: When you first start it up cold, it will stumble around & misfire for about 30sec to 1 min. then instantly clear up and run perfect. This is what I've tryed, new bosch plugs(from dealer), temp sensor, We also did an secondary air pump...

    For those of you who have the single din Monsoon sound system with the in dash CD player- When you turn your radio to Min volume while in CD mode, and then turn the radio off, does it get stuck on the MIN setting? Mine does, and I think it is ridiculous that they can't fix it.
