  1. Has anyone ever towed their B5 behind an RV? Looking for options...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anyone ever towed their B5 behind an RV? Looking for options. Ideally, we'd find some kind of "attach to the front of the car" solution. We have a 30 foot Winnebago with a class IV hitch on it, and would like to tow our '02 Passat Wagon 1.8t. I know car dollies are simple, but it's seems...
  2. ‘03 Wrecked - looking at options...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Sold by ‘03 V6 4motion in perfect condition to my neighbor, whose son totaled it shortly after obtaining his license (20 hours after), and they’re looking into options. The running gear as in the engine and trans were in top shape and still are, so we are wondering what Passat we could swap...
  3. Touchscreen car stereo options for 2003, B 5.5

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did some research on this but confused. So I thought it would be best to ask you about your opinions and experiences. The state of GA and FL passed a law that bans using phones altogether when driving. I want to install a touch screen stereo that mathches the color of the cluster. Also, I...
  4. Clutch options for less than 600 for 04/05 diesel 5 speed swap

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm doing a 5 speed swap in my BHW looking at clutch options for my car The whitebread set up is top notch no doubt! Probably the best choice this side of the pond but I don't want to invest too much into my work commuter car the 1.8t gasser flywheels work and are in the 20 some odd pound...
  5. CV options

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So just as I was finishing up a front brake job, I noticed a torn outer CV boot. The car has not been driven since last June, I vaguely remember a little clicking on turns. Now I know why. I see that the general consensus on full CV assemblies is to stay away from them unless it is a Raxle...
  6. B5 Rally Passat - suspension lift options

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Rallying a 2000 Passault (B5) AWD wagon. Bad idea - no need to rehash, thanks. We've had a bunch of fun with it, :rolleye: replacing PCV hoses, replacing all three differentials' fluids (with Royal Purple 75/90 syn), tearing out useless plastic crap, replacing spark plugs, wires, and coil etc...

  9. VAG Options sticker - decode the first line

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anyone know how to decipher the first line on the VAG options sticker. Specifically, the numbers/letters above the VIN. In my case, 0000 01-6 - 7XX1 UO Im guessing part of it is build date, in this case 6th month of 2001, but haven't a clue about the numbers before and after that. Could they...
  10. Weighing My Options... Please Help

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello Passat World! I honestly don't know what I would do without this forum, so thank you all for taking time out of your day to read my thread. :) I have a 2003 passat AWD with just over 160K on it. The car runs great in general, although within the past year I've noticed a slight "clunking"...
  11. Catalytic converter replacement options?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been dealing with a P0420 for several years new, but now it's starting to effect performance and gas mileage. Mileage is down from about 28 average to 24. Car is noticeably slower accelerating now than it was before. I now have a P1556 - Charge Pressure Control: Negative Deviation. I...
  12. Replacing the turbo diverter valve and available options around Go Fast Bits

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi - not sure if anyone has run into this for their Passat B6, but I had a question about turbo boost expectations, the updated rev "D" diverter from VW, and the Go Fast Bits diverter upgrade and some alternatives I found. Last year, I had an issue where I was losing boost and power and it...
  13. Intercooler options

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was cleaning up under the engine this last week and as I was looking around I noticed one of the mounts for my SMIC had separated from the end tank. I have the entire front end apart as I was having radiator issues too so I thought I might as well drop the intercooler out and replace it...
  14. Maintenance options for my Passat

    New Member Introductions
    I have got a general automotive query to ask. I have bought a 2007 model Passat. I bought it before 3 months. I need to find a solution for its regular service. A few days back, I read a blog related to this...
  15. Fuel door options?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Was wondering if anybody has any opinions on fuel door replacement. I snapped mine in half the other day in the cold weather. Would like to replace with billet or chrome but cannot seem to find any. If worse comes to worse I guess my other option is to buy new and paint. Junkyards??????
  16. 2017 Passat SEL Premium trim - options?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I'm getting my new 2017 Passat this afternoon. I have a 2014 Passat TDI that is part of the buyback and I really like the wood trim in the 2014 model which actually looks like wood as opposed to the grey "supposed to look like wood but really doesn't" in the new '17 model. Does anyone know...
  17. Cruise control module options

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The subject part does not function in my car. Is it best to: purchase a new unit, repair my current unit or purchase a refurbished unit? I want to gauge the experiences of others across the different options. Spec: 1999 VW Passat V6, B5
  18. Car shop options

    B5 Garage
    Hey I was wondering if anyone knew any places around Louisville Kentucky to work on Volkswagen besides the dealership. I'm not sure if this is in the right place if not could a admin move it to the right area? Thanks in advance
  19. Axle options, other than Raxles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I currently have Raxles on both sides of my car. I've had them since 2009, and 2010. I've had torn boots on each side once already, and they were repaired under warranty. Just noticed the right side is torn again. Each time, I have remove them, pay to ship them to Florida, wait a week, pay...
  20. New Wagon Owner, availability of rear sway bar options?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    New 1.8t wagon owner here - been searching past threads and seems like there's plenty of enthusiasm about adding a rear sway bar. My question - is the only bar still available the autotech one? Seems like the SRS bar is long gone, Nuespeed no longer makes theirs and/or I can't find any vendors...
