    I sold my 2002 Passat a few weeks ago. 465,000 miles and still going strong it was time for something different. I found a 2004 V6 4motion wagon with 120K on the clock. Original owners, full service receipts, a well kept car. As luck would have it a week after I bought it we had a snow storm...

    I've been a member since this summer and only selfishly consumed the information in an attempt to fix my 2001 1.8t Passat... I'm back again. It has not gone well, and I have exhausted much of my patcience... more info to come.

    Hey, I somehow lost track of my old user account. So I signed up for a new one. I have owned my Passat since 2006. I bought it with 32k miles and it now has 140k more. I have always loved the car as it checks all the boxes for me.

    My '00 GLS is mechanically sound but the inside is falling apart. I'm not even trying to keep it nice but just to be in a somewhat respectable state. The main issue is the aged plastic parts. They keep braking. From little pieces inside the door panels, door handles even some dash parts... The...

    My 99 1.8T A/T (186,500 mile) is whining and sound exactly like a power steering pump, but it isn't. Turning wheels makes no difference. Sounds the same even in park. Changes directly in relation to RPM. Serpentine belt is not new, but seem tight. Could it possible be the torque converter...

    Looking at maybe selling our minivan for a 2015 Passat V6 SEL. Supposedly brand new in a dealer showroom. So I have a few questions: 1) How much should I pay for it? 2) What should I look for in terms of issues for a car sitting in a showroom or lot for 2 years? 3) Would you do it? 4) Should I...

    '05 TDI wagon hello to all! I like my diesel but VW's a peculiar to say the least! The water cooled EGR blew my mind, esp. when the mechanic told me of an A/M fix that deletes the water cooled part! 190K+ I like the smoothness of the engine and gear changes. It seems more like an electric...

    I have a b5 Audi a4 1.8tq with icm delete and FSI coil conversion kit from Integrated Engineering. One coil adapter have started to fail (bad connection, needs to be wiggled every now and then), so I want to fit the 4 point connectors to my 3 wire aeb harness. Which brings me to this thread...

    Hi All-- I've actually been reading posts on the forum for years and gaining a lot from them, but it never occurred to me to join until today. I've been working on a challenge in my 2000 Passat 4motion over the last few days and didn't find my exact situation in the archives so would like to...

    After about 16 years of driving pleasure, I finally bid farewell to my '99 Passat 1.8T (I bought it used in 2001). The car had about 205K miles on it and things were starting to go up on it left and right. In the past year I've replaced the downpipe, catalytic converter, turbo, engine mounts...

    Replacing front/rear struts including mounts and bearings for the front ones on a 06 Passat 2.0T. The shocks/struts came with the new nuts. Other than these are all other bolts reusable from the old assembly? If not, can anyone Pl. share the part #s for those. Just don't want to be running to...

    It appears my old account was locked or deleted so I created a new one. I have a 2002 Passat Wagon, owned since new. Only major issues have been persistent valve cover leaks for the last 5 years and now engine mounts. I perform most of these repairs myself.

    Saturday morning I take the old B5.5 to get a new flex joint welded in the exhaust. Seems fine, cost $156 CAD. Sunday evening my son tells me that the hatch doesn't open anymore.:mad: Tried the key, don't work. The electric solenoid is trying, you can feel it struggle when you press the...
