  1. Bad Bearing / Fan Pulley

    B5 Garage
    Grinding, assuming the bearing is bad. Now I need to remove the fan. AC is still working, no overheating issues. Pulley has some rubber skid marks on it from the extra friction. I know it's starting to seize up. What's the easiest way to get the bearing out once the fan and pulley are...
  2. How to check serpentine belt pulleys?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I replaced the serpentine belt and the tensioner pulley. I forgot to check the other pulleys while I had the belt off. How do I check the other pulleys? Is it as simple as releasing the tension on the belt via the tensioner and then spinning each of the other pulleys to hear if they make any...
  3. Cam pulley holes don't line up

    B5 Garage
    Hi, in the middle of changing timing belt, I have the cam pulley locking bar and crankshaft locking tools. I have rotated the engine so that Cylinder 3 is at TDC. However, the right camshaft holes are perfectly horizontal but the left camshaft pulley sits at a very slight upward slope, as if...
  4. WP pulley and PS Pulley not flush...

    B5 Garage
    I have changed the water pump on my AEB and upon getting everything back together I noticed the water pump pulley and the power steering pump pulley are not flush.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So...out for a sunday drive. Alternator workshop message flashes up with the usual VW beep. No noticeable difference in the way it drove, just what sounded like a slipping belt. Thought ok...turn around head home and take a look. Opened the bonnet and was shocked to see the alternator pulley had...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The power steering pulley is making a grinding noise in my wife's V6. Is it an easy job? Does this mean something else besides the pulley needs replacing?

    Hi, I'm rebuilding the front end of my 2001 vw Passat 2.8 v6 manual. And I have a warped power steering pulley. I took out the 3 Allen bolts to put the new one on but I swear to god I can't get this thing off. The center looks pretty rusty but I have sprayed it with PB blaster and hit it to...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 GLS Wagon 2.8L (ATQ) H6 drive took out seven bolts, just spins in #8. My job to renew gaskets and seals - both sides - is stalled until I can get this out. Any good ideas? I guess I could take out the crankshaft bolt(!) but would rather leave it on (unless I see that the crankshaft seal...

  11. Camshaft pulley turned after removing locking bar and TB. Help needed.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The passenger side camshaft pulley turned about 30 deg clockwise. I read up before posting and it seems to happen occasionally when the bar is removed. I have the pin in and tried to turn the crankshaft with the pin in to ensure it was locked and it didn't move. I loosened the bots with the...

    Replaced the alternator in my B5 V6 last week, oh what a fun job that was. All was perfect until yesterday. Let the husband drive the car as I had to go get the tabs for his. Got the dreaded "alternator workshop, beep beep beep, flashing battery light" phone call. Rushed home. Have been...
  15. V6 front pulley destroyed.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I noticed the rubber sandwich section on my son's front pulley had pushed out and rubbed on the lower timing belt cover when I changed the timing belt last year (when we bought the car). I trimmed the rubber that was pushed out and wanted to replace the pulley, but I did not have one available...

    B5 Garage
