  1. Wheel Bearings - Convince Me Mine Are Good

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I was working on the wife's car tonight, 4 hours of just nothing but pure hell. I got the passengers side suspension back on the car, yeah 4 hours for that. (we need some new smileys - I need one with a gun to the head) I swear putting that suspension on tonight was like reeling in a 600lb...

  4. WTB - Front A6/S6 or Passat Seats; Mine caught fire.

    WTB/WTT Section
    Well, it happened today. I was driving to work and i smelled that lovely burning smell. Realized my seat caught fire under my arse. Left side of the bolster decided to light a hole right through the leather about the size of a nickle or a small cigar. So i'm now on the search for some S6...
  5. All this talk about Throttle Bodies. Let's see why mine failed!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    OK, My well published TB died a slow death and I needed to know why. Symptoms included intermittent ABS and TC lights, every couple of days, it'd go nutz and start crazy idling :icon_eek:...800, 1200, 750, 1400...since it's a 5MT, it's more pronounced. I put the last month or so of my VCDS...
  6. What symptoms did you have for ignition switch failure? Is mine bad

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 passat v6 5 speed. FWD 121,000miles. When I put the key in the ignition and turn sometimes nothing happens. Dash lights don't light up nothing. Not even seat belt chime. Other times it will crank but no light off. Like it isn't getting fuel or ignition. To fix it and make the car run I...

    Looking at replacing the SAIP this week-$500 new for OEM or $100 for aftermarket.....I was a bit surprised the dealer parts dept would want $100+ for just the secondary tube that goes to the air box.
  8. Why is mine an empty space?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought B5.5 1.8T AWM I found on craigslist. It has a solid ABS and blinking BRAKE light on so I've been watching the videos on the ABS removal. I noticed something else. I have an empty space where the cars in the videos have something there. What is it? My engine seems to run fine so is it...

  13. Introduction ... mine

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, I misunderstood the purpose of the "2 posts" rule... initially. I bought my 2003 (B5?) Passat Wagon 1.8T in the summer of 2002. I really think there's something about the wagon styling that is classic. She's about to pass 100k miles. I have done an exceptionally poor job at maintenance...
