    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was under the hood today and by sheer coincidence I saw couple of bolts are missing from a part down under the engine (see the picture). Does anyone knows what that part is and perhaps what causes the missing bolts?

  3. Coolant Light is on (+pic)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Tried unsuccessfully to change the coolant tank today. I have put the old tank back with full of coolant. But when I started the car I get this alarm light on. What would be the cause of this? Could it be that there is air in the system preventing coolant to freely flow? If so how do I get the...
  4. Coolant Reservoir Question (+pic)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have recently noticed some cracks on the coolant reservoir. I think the age is taking its toll on it (16+ years). Is this something that I need to worry about in terms of exploding due to the heat? Or just some plastic glues on the cracks may protect it? In case I have to replace it, I may go...

  10. Cam Cap 7 T30 bits, special tool to access? (pic)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all - I am working on the pax side bank. I managed to remove all cam caps and the camshafts, but the T30 fastener on cap 7 is going to be impossible to torque back down properly due to the proximity to the body metal. I just about ruined the bolt extracting. The gap is too small for a T30 bit...
