2003 Passat 1.8T tiptronics FWD with ESP
I was changing brake fluid with Motive pressure bleeder. I let the reservoir fluid level dropped too low so air traveled all the way to my rear passenger side caliper. Afterward, I did two full flushes, but brake pedal is still very mushy.
Today, I found that I can replicate paddle stuck as many times as I want while my 2001 FWD B5 Passat (tiptronic) is parked.
It is a stock paddle with stock interior setup, including a stock VW floor mat which is hold to its factory position by 2 "buttons" toward the rear...
I've started to look at CCs to possibly step in as my daily so I can give my old B5 a rest, but was curious is there is a paddle shifter option for the CC, or perhaps a euro option that can be installed with the right parts (like the Touareg)?
I just purchased this wheel from a member on Vortex, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I can no longer afford to buy what's needed for the swap. I'm asking for $350 shipped OBO. The wheel is in pristine condition. Part number is 3C8 419 091 AKE74.
So, I have been thinking a lot about this lately. How to make a MK5/6 GTI DSG paddle shifted steering wheel compatible with the TIP transmission. I know that you can just solder the leads from the TIP board to the + and - and you get to use paddle. What about using an Arduino board and...
alright guys, in the b5 garage I found a thread about swapping the stock steering wheel for one with paddle shifters and then changing up the tcu, but is this legit. I haven't heard of anyone doing it and I think it would be an extremely cool mod to do. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas...
a friend of mine at the vw dealership was telling that their are paddle shifters out there for the B6 passat. has anyone else heard about that or has anyone bought any and istalled them? if so where did you get them and how hard was it to install them?
I'm starting this project... Currently have a metal shop machining my aluminum paddles with mounting brackets. I'm hoping to mold some illuminated + and - into the upper wings but the prototypes don't have it yet.
removed center console
removed chrome shifter plate
removed hall sensor...
got a 2006 passat DSG (automatic) if i wanted to put on a paddle shift steering wheel, would it work with a straight swap or would i have to do some programming?
any help will greatly be appreciated.
Audi A3? TT?
The 2008 A4 is not offered with sports seats, correct? Will the 2009 A4 have optional sport seats?
Is the VW GTI the least expensive European car sold in the U.S. with sport (non-Recaro) seats and paddle shifters?
whatever happened to the guy who figured out how to use relays to where you paddle shifted with your wiper/turn signal stalks when you engaged tiptronic mode? I know he is trying to patent it, but any other info on this would be great.
