  3. EPC light and Crank Position Sensor Change

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday I was caught by surprise when tried to start the car (1.8T 2002). It took several attempts to crank the engine but then instantly got the EPC light and high idle. Based on what I read in the forum, the culprit should be a bad crank position sensor. Is that a right assumption? Or should...

  10. Rear Seat Arm Rest stuck in up position

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2002 GLX Wagon - Rear seat arm rest will not fold down in to the open position. Arm rest moves about 30-degrees and then gets stuck and will not fold down into the open position. Is there a trick, or hidden release button that needs to be pushed?

    In the process of replacing my Snub and read somewhere here that another person positions it slightly high and center. To reduce the engine movement even more upon acceleration. Is this acceptable or am I best to simply center it like others have done? Thank you
