  1. Revert back to VW stereo - which one?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    When I bought my Passat (B6/2008 model) it had a Xtrons system in it that I really don't like. I was going to revert back to a standard VW stereo but are unsure which one to go with. It needs to take a USB stick and ideally I would like DAB if possible. My first thought was the RCN210 because...

  3. *sigh* Strut question with one key detail (yes I searched)...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, first-off yes I have searched. My 2003 Wagon has 120,000 miles on it and the struts need to be replaced. I've pretty much settled on Bilstein's for the struts so that's taken care of. But unfortunately in my search results most of the threads are quite old. In one of those old results...

  6. UK spec B5.5 crash sensor replacement.....how to buy the right one?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all! I have had a good search of the forum but I have not come up with a firm answer to my question. I currently have a B5.5 pd130 5speed that has been showing airbag fault warning. Codes read using a cheap reader..01222. Swapped the passenger side crash sensor with the drivers side and...
  7. Does the 1999 V6 thermostat have one or two orings?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This deserved a separate thread because AndreasPassat and I are discussing an issue that is puzzling. He's convinced that there are two orings, and I only have one. I have one on the old one I removed, and only one came with the new one I'm about to install. It mounts on the outside of the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, Just finished the tb but the crank is almost one tooth off. Is it bad? No matter how many times I tried, it ends up being one tooth off.
  9. One picture, one question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My cruise has stopped working. I replaced the switch on the steering column and found that connection burnt. What may have caused it? ( cruise still not working. Replaced the box behind the globe box with a unit from junk yard. Of no avail. )
  10. Another One Down

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My daughter was driving the 99 tonight to her brother's apartment. I had just put the new tires on the front this evening, and last week I did a complete brake job including rear calipers--about $500 and a bit of my time. All this was to get the car to pass NYSI. Well, something happened...
  11. Wife's 2004 Passat GLS Wagon needs fuel pump, what's a decent low cost one? Started

    B5 Garage
    My original post won't open, so I'm trying again. We were selling the car anyways to make room for a new Passat or Audi A6 then the fuel pump craps out. Changed the fuel filter, which was filthy, which probably helped the pump die an early death. Started searching FCP Euro, ECS, Parts Geek, and...
  12. Wife's 2004 Passat GLS Wagon needs fuel pump, what's a decent low cost one?

    B5 Garage
    We have been actually looking for a newer Passat or Audi when her current VW died the other day. Thought maybe I'd get lucky and replace the filter and be done with it, but not this time. The filter was terribly dirty inside, which probably led to the early demise of her fuel pump. Started...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi Everyone, So today i went to pick up my driver side window on my 2012 Passat SE by just pulling the button once like i normally do and for some reason it didn't go all the way up i had to keep holding it in order for the window to close. I've been reading a bunch or forums and ran across the...

  15. Where were you my B5-owning years? The One True Ratchet

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On a recent trip to the Toy Store for Men, Harbor Freight, I was on a quest to obtain a nice 3/8" ratchet, as my new chariot, a '17 CR-V, uses 10mm bolts for nearly everything, and a 1/2" drive is overkill for that, if I even had a 1/2" 10mm, which I don't. Like many DIYers my only 3/8"...
  16. here's a good one on a Monday

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I did the rear brakes yesterday and I'm driving to work today. About halfway to work I start to hear this horrible dragging / rubbing sound, fearing that I totally messed something up with brakes :rolleyes: I turned around and drove home. Examine the car in my driveway and my engine splash...
