    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...

    Apologize up front if this answer is somewhere - I searched and couldn't find anything. I'm pretty sure I have the optional HID bi-zenon headlights on my '07 3.64Matic Wagon. (is there a way to verify via VIN?) The car has the steering side lights at low speeds and are pretty bright. My issue...

    I looked around and didn't find anything on it. Is there a place online or on this site, that will decode the options tag in the rear spare tire well. I have read it list all the options just dont know the codes.

    Looking for what's in each option package. -This information isn't in the VW brochure (i.e. broken out by content of each option pkg.) -This information may be at other sites like Edmunds or KBB, but there's so much "ad trash" on those sites, it's hard to discern the content of each pkg. Site...

    I have an O2 passat wagon. I've upgraded my front brakes with aluminium uprights and ATE calipers from a 2.7t Audi A6. Fronts look great but the rears are so small it looks like there's nothing there. I know of people that have upgraded thier 4 motion rears with Audi components but don't know of...

    Hi All: I just purchased a new to me 2012 Passat with cloth seats. I'd like to heat the seats and have seen very positive reviews from people adding aftermarket systems. My quest is to do this but to utilize the factory seat heater switches. My existing system has blank covers in place of the...

    First and foremost, I hate black unless you just finished washing it at which time it is amazing. Washing it in the sun in the south sucks, it looks dirty the next day, and it shows every imperfection and swirl mark but that's not why I'm here. I was just looking at an Escalade, Grand Cherokee...

    I used the options decoder for my codes listed on my sticker in the owners manual. All are self explanatory except this one: L03 = Suspension range 03 installation control only, no requirement forecast :confused: What does it mean? Any help would be appreciated! B0D = Component parts set...

    My 1.8L Turbo began making a sound like a horse sneeze about 3 months ago. Thought it might be the turbo waste gate. Found out from this forum it is most likely the CCT. It has become very loud since an oil change yesterday. I realize the best way is to change the CCT. Money is an issue, so, has...

    Hey all, my wife's 2000 Passat wagon is in dire need of a timing belt now that she's hit the 200K mark. I spent the $200 something for an ECS kit around 90K (when we bought it). But I see what looks to be a decent quality kit on ebay for a mere $99 (no water pump [$25 extra], but with cam...

    I'm considering buying a used 2007 passat wagon 2.0t from a non vw dealer. They claim it has leather seats but i can't figure out if it has leatherette or not because it doesn't sound like it has the right component mix for either of the common packages on the vehicle. It has leather steering...

    Attached is factory information on the extended service interval option. I see no mention of this on the forums or in Bently service. Is this option not available in US? VW launched this in 2000 so I would have thought all vehicles after 2001/2 would have this. Basically it extends service...

    for cryin'g out loud... I'm really fucking tired of partisan politics. The Republicans are playing fucking games, playing brinksmanship, all in an effort to say they tried to curb spending. :mad: The economy and the national debt didn't get to where it is overnight, as it took both sides to...

    Just thought I'd let you guys know about my new reflashed ecu. I found Mark Malone of malonetuning on vwvortex and started chatting with him. After some consideration and debate I decided to take the plunge on his stage 2 reflash for my 1.8t. The experience was Phenomenal in dealing with Mark...

    I bought a '99 passat, and I just realized the only key I was given is a valet key. I'm pretty sure I don't have an immobilizer and I would like to avoid paying roughly $200 for a new non-valet key. What can be done? edit: It does come with the banjo remote, so I don't need the switchblade...

    My dealer came through with an owner's manual for me but the audio section does not have my radio included. I believe I have the premium 7 radio (satellite, 6 CD in dash changer). It has no menu button that I can find. Is there a way to access the menu to adjust the default volume (when...

    In a few months I'm expecting my 3rd child, I know that I can fit 3 child seats across the back bench (I have to buy narrow seats). I will be putting my oldest, 4, in the middle seat, since she can operate the buckle. The thing is, the console/armrest will be in her way, and will be...
