  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I need to get my dead Passat a short distance from one place to another... and I'd like to do so without the expense of hiring a tow truck. My wife and I were going to tow it the other night with our pickup but couldn't find a place to hook on the Passat. I didn't take the time to crawl around...

    Hi My passenger side front and rear footwells are soaked under the carpet. Other than the 2 drain holes (one under the battery tray and one behind the brake servo) which are clear of obstructions, anywhere else water usually comes in from? Thanks Pete
  5. Wheel and Tire Forum
    After several years of running the stock and kind of boring factory wheels on my 2000 Passat, 1.8T, I wanted to upgrade a little. I'm a few months away from needing new tires; so no huge hurry and I want to do it right. What I do know is the 15's have to go, also I would like to use stock...

    (Add edit: Sorry, I meant Roof, not Rood) Searched roof rack mounting points, didn't find any relevant threads. Hi all. Trial fitting a Votex roof rack for my '99 B5 sedan, (possibly the last relatively intact one in VW dealer network). The instructions say to locate the racks at points...

    sorry for the noob question, but I need to replace my power steering rack, and several searches have yielded conflicting answers on the best way to safely jack up my front end. the threads I've found have all been fairly old and inconclusive. I gather that the best approach is to purchase a...

    I need to remove the center air vent cover. VW recommends using the Removing Wedge 3409 and simply prying it out from the dashboard? I'm thinking a few butter knives would do the trick. I've searched the forum and everything I've found relates to the B5 models. Are there any locking tabs on...
  9. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have recently bought my first v/w, a 2008 Passat and have been having intermittent problems with my Electronic Parking Brake. It eventually will engage and disengage but not until I have pressed the button several times at each attempt. Given that a diagnostic check will cost the same as if I...
  10. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Can anyone advise what the optimum RPM shift points are in a 2012 Passat TDI 6M for maximum acceleration? Perhaps someone with a DSG can advise at what RPM it shifts under full throttle.
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, my Passat is acting very odd and different from most threads I have searched. It upshifts at higher RPMS and downshifts equally as weird. BUT ITS ONLY IN AUTO MODE:crazy:. Down shifts in Tip are normal and it upshifts on command. It does this everytime we drive it. :mad: Here are...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've looked at the coolant flushing DIY and it shows two coolant bleed points (3/16" hex screws). My B5.5 '02 Passat GLX V6 has the front bleed point, but not the rear one (under the reservoir). In fact, many things in the pictures are different. Bentley manual is unhelpful as well. Does...

    SO I went out to jack up my car to get the Belly Pan off so I could drain the coolant. Turns out I only have a 2 ton jack and 2 ton stands lying around. GVWT (weight of B5.5 Passat) is something like 4100-4200 lbs as listed, meaning that I'm over my stands limits... Didn't bother trying, not...

    Hello all…long time no post lol. I have a 03 Passat gls 1.8 sedan and I have a question about jack points/jacks. I looked all over and can’t find a solution to this particular problem. After years of borrowing other peoples jack stands I headed out to sears to buy a pair of my own. When I was...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, I have a 1998 Passat saloon and am wondering if the car has any pre-drilled holes in the chassis to attach bolts to act as child seat restraint anchors for a top tether strap? I cannot see anything in the owner's manual and my local dealership does not know what I am talking about! Any...

    I am looking at doing my brakes rotors and bleed the system. I have the mityvac to do the self bleeding. I am thinking of ordering the PBR deluxe pads and solid brembo rotors from import rp. I'd also like to paint my calipers all at the same time. I have tried to figure out how to jack up the...
