    I am well underway with the heater core replacement on my newly acquired Passat VR6. I have everything (and I mean everything) extracted, so I would like to say the hard part is over now. Looks like the problem was the heater hose barb (plastic) on the core broke to pieces, which caused...

    We all dread the day when one of our cars either die/quit working, or become involved in an accident. Unfortunately for my 01 1.8t, it was the latter. I bought my 2001 VW Passat 1.8T, 5 Speed Manual from a private party as my first car on December 1st, 2012. I had just obtained my license a...

    I've decided to finally make a page dedicated to my car. I'm going to use Instagram until I get a real camera in a few weeks. I've been a member of PW long enough that I feel comfortable showing off a little. I was probably overly modest in the past, whichis probably the reason I haven't created...

  20. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After 5 years of owning my B5 I'm finally starting to make it really my own. All it took was a crushed tail light, blown tire, and some bird shit.
