    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As the title says, my ABS light and the ASR light came on the other day and stayed on. This has never happened before but I have a feeling that I may have dislodged something when I removed the bumper (to remove the headlights, stupid system but whatever). As far as bumper removal, I had to...
