  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings everyone, it has been a while. Since I last posted, my 'baby' [2000 Passat 4motion V6 2.8L] left Maui Hawaii 2 years ago at 106k miles, and is now outside NYC with 123k miles. For a while I was tolerating my Pre-mature Warm up of catylyst on banks 1 and 2. I simply cleared them now...

    I'm in the middle of doing a bunch of work on my car and am at the point where I can do the transmission output flange seals with all the suspension stuff out of the way. I got the passenger side flange pulled an the seal ready to go. I know the little spring clip that retains the flange is...

    Hello, as I finished closing up my transmission today after swapping differentials, I noticed that the output flanges for the axles have a little bit of play to them. Not much when pushing in an out, but in a orbital motion (looking at the transmisssion from where the axle would be), it moves...

    As i plan out the build for my b5 wagon i have realized very few places make High output alts, so i am curious: What is everyone running here? I am looking at a full 2KW RMS at the subwoofer amp, with another ~ 75w on the fronts, so ~240a would be the minimum i would be comfortable with, ive...

    In my 03 Wagon with double din monsoon I have a strange issue. Front speakers are fine. The rear door speakers only put out 1/4 of the sound on the right and about 1/2 on the left. For a rear seat passenger to hear the radio I need to turn up the volume to the point where it's too loud in the...

    Faulty Head Unit or speakers. Ideal output for stock speakers? I started this thread when I thought I had blown my driver's door tweeter. I replaced it and it seems to be good now but I have since been going out of mind trying to determine the source of more crackling coming in particular, it...

    Hey guys, My 120 amp alt isnt cutting it with the draw that I can put on it with the speakers I bought and I'm not excited about forking out $500 on a mechman alternator but I cant really find anybody else who makes one for the 01 v6 passat. If you've got any alternatives then give me a shout...

    Hi all, I am chasing down an issue with a 2000 Passat V6. It is throwing a P1519 Camshaft Adjustment issue. I performed the Output Test today...running through all components. The one I cared about was the Camshaft Adjustment. On this test...the bank 2 Camshaft Chain Tensioner solenoid was...

    If the codes say misfire in cylinder one, is it more likely to be the ICM (which looks like it has been replaced once before) or would it be the actual coil pack for cylinder one ? Just trying not to overbuy since you can't return electrical parts. Thanks 99 1.8T AEB

    I am installing the engine FWD tranny combo into a Porsche 914. The Porsche axles are 100mm, the transmission is 108mm. Is there a bolt on stub flange that is 100mm? The Jetta/Golf has one but the tranny is sideways. Can anybody shed some light? Otherwise it's a custom hybrid axle.

    Just installed DDM HIDs in depo projector housings, and the results are very disappointing.. For some reason the light output is not good at all, and very blue/purple looking. I got the 4500k kit because I want a lot of light, not a blue light look. They seem to fire up fine, bright for a...

    I have a 2004 vw passat 1.8T with five speed manual transmission. I am looking for a used or new transmission output shaft. The part number I got is 012409343T.

    I'm trying to shore up a few things before our long cold winter. Last year I had heat but certainly not enough for northern Minnesota. It get's pretty warm after about twenty minutes of driving in town but never what I would call hot. And if I remember correctly a short drive on the highway...
