  1. Pipe broken near oil dipstick tube under intake manifold b5.5 1.8t

    B5 Garage
    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...
  2. 2.8 Flex Pipe cutting angle

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It is really difficult to cut the top portion. I've managed to remove the other end post-cat and replace the band clamp, cut the side of the flex pipe closest to the cat with a sawzall, but cutting the other side is damn near impossible. I've managed a cut most of the way through but the sawzall...
  3. How to lift a dropped exhaust pipe?

    Trying to lift a B5 4-Motion wagon as seen here. The exhaust basically dropped in the middle and scraped on the road for a while until I removed the rear section. I now have it look like in the attached picture, and was wondering how to temporarily lift the remaining exhaust section so I can...
  4. Heater core pipe leaking!!!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I have the dreaded heater core plastic pipe leaking :( It's leaking from the pipe that doesn't have the bleeder on the hose (The inlet pipe)? It looks to be 2 pin holes between the rubber boot and the hose. I know the fix is to replace the HC but I don't have time to do that now. There was...

  7. 2006 2.0T - broken flex pipe

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The flex pipe (back of engine) is broken. While cheap downpipes are available for other 2.0T (recently bought one for my 2006 A3 FWD 2.0T), i can't find a reasonable (i.e. cheap) downpipe listed for the 2006 Passat 2.0T. Or I am not looking for the right model. Is the there a model that cross...

    New Member Introductions
    I went to a repair shop to get the drivers side down pipe replaced. They wanted $1600 just for the one with single cat & flex. He told me the transmission had to be dropped in order to get at the manifold to pipe bolts. I left. How hard is it to replace the first drivers side pipe? Auto trans...

    B5 Garage
    Last October I got a 2001 Estate with a 2.0L AZM engine. Never had or fixed cars before, but just in case when I got the car I bought a VAG-COM from ebay. A couple of weeks ago it started shaking at idle. I already had a CEL from SAIS before (since last year already), but when I connected the...

  20. Flexi Pipe Gone Cat Good

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

All the garages are quoting over £300 to replace the Cat, they say it's a full front piece flexi and Cat. Is it possible to splice in a new flexi pipe?
