    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    2008 Passat 2.0. Just got done replacing most of the AC. Everything but one line and evaporator. All seems to be working okay with the exception that the recirculation button will not stay depressed and does not light up. You can tell that the AC is allowing fresh air in and keeping it from...

  4. Passat B5 wagon in the news; not necessarily a good thing

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So maybe you've see pictures of the apparently nice Passat wagon, owned by the guy whom the court kicked out of his parent's house in New York. The story I read implies that he has other Passats in storage, so he's perhaps a PassatWorld B5 forum member?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The ignition key has been getting more difficult to turn when the steering wheel is locked. I must pull on the steering wheel quite a bit and then the key turns nicely. If I shut the car off with the steering wheel unlocked, the key turns fine. This makes me believe that the ignition key...
