  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings fellow Passat wrenchers, this would be my first thread and I'm appreciative for your help and insight. I know this is a longer post, but it is very thinking and planning intensive, and so maybe interesting to you as well. Yesterday was my 1 year anniversary with my 2004 Passat v6 30V...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This thread may be something like a follow-up to my MFSW Retrofit novel which may or may not have a nice ending. Whatever. A couple of weeks ago, while fighting with the i-System module, I could not avoid staring at my door cards which look TERRIBLE. These doors were kinda rebuilt back on 2007...

    Good evening gentlemen, After lots of digging, searches and googling around I finally took the courage to proceed this update on my car. Here are the details about the vehicle, the radio and of course the main goal: 1998/99 AEB 1.8T Sedan: No Cruise Control, just the regular switch for turn...
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I think we need to have a sticky with all of the steering wheels that will fit the B5 and B5.5 For instance I am looking at a 2007 GTI FARENHEIT EDITION wheel and would love to know if it will direct fit or if it needs modded. We should have 2 different lists, direct fit, or with mods. :wrench...

    Hi everybody, I am driving a 2002 VW Passat and facing the repair of the air condition system. The damn thing won't cool the car anymore, which is getting pretty annoying. Florida weather+black leather seats+nonworking AC = not so comfortable :( Driving naked and with all windows down is an...

    Greetings all, I'm attempting to cure a few ills on my02 v6 myself. Briefly, best to replace drive line assembly rather than cv rebuild? Cost is not most important issue to me. Ease of installation is a factor. One other issue with the car is that the throttle response can be very uneven and...

    Hi, sorry if this is boring or has been done to death - if so I'm sure it will find a quick death. I recently bought a 99 Passat which is scratched ALL over. The only thing I can think of is that they were big campers and brushed up against hundreds of trees over the years. At first I noticed...

    hey fellows, over the weekend i tried to replace the speakers - mission failed due to the following reasons: 1. i could only partially remove the door panel, because i failed to detach the followign two cables a) for puddle light at the bottom of the door, and b) for the tweeters 2. the stock...

    I took my time last Saturday and did the job. It took me 10hrs, but this includes few brakes and a lunch etc. I would say I worked on the car for 8hr including bleeding the cooling system. It was the second time working on the TB. First time on v6. The car was exactly at 90030 at the time...

    Well, I love doing DIY's on my ride. And im a pretty mechanical savy guy :thumbup: But dont really feel good about messing with electrical. I am up for almost anything motor wise, but i dont feel confident with electrical problems or upgrades. This is due to me not ever installing a stereo or...

    Hi guys, I call upon your infinite wisdom once more. I'm having a pretty serious issue with my car right now. On a cold start everything functions FINE! No stutter, no hesitation, normal start. Once I drive whichever 3 - 4 miles I do and then attempt to start the car again it's impossible. I'll...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know this topic has been kicked around a few times but I'm looking for some definitive answers this time. We all know how much the lame lock-up/alarm horn sucks, but what have you done to replace it with something better? Disabling it isn't an option as I like the audible notification as...
