    You know the feeling you got when you spotted your future wife / husband.......Same thing happened when I saw this Passat. I have owned VW's for the past 10 years (i'm 32) from Golfs, Jettas, CC's, but the B5.5 passat grandpa has always caught my eye. Long story short, I'm going to look at the...

    My back passenger door electronics stopped working this weekend. None of the buttons work and the interior light does not come on when I open the door. The window does go down an inch when I open the door and back up when I close it. Other than that nothing. The battery also had a...

    Is there a way to pull up the carpet from the back on a 2000 Volkswagen Passat? My car recently had a leak on the rear passenger side because I didn't clear the drains under the battery. The carpet is bone dry but when I press on the carpet I could still hear water squishing under it. Is...

    So rough idle on my 2004 passat 1.8t, especially in the AM. Been getting P300, P301, etc codes to my OBDII. Was planning on changing plugs this weekend, but while taking cursory look at motor, I spotted this: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet I can't seem to get the two ends to...

    My driver's axle is due for re-booting and I pulled it today to send off to Marty. I have a decent-quality 3/8" 10 mm triple-square, the splines were clean, and I know they were torqued correctly. Nevertheless, I very nearly stripped the splines of the first bolt. With some P'Blaster and...

    Hello! 2003 V6 Passat GLX 125xxx Miles I have recently acquired a 2003 v6 passat and while it is running it runs pretty rough and loses a lot of power while accelerating. I have replaced Valve cover gaskets and spark plugs and cleaned what i could out of the vacuum lines. The car sat for...

    I just picked up a 99' Passat 1.8T 5 Speed manual the other day. When I run the engine I faintly smell oil sometimes, this might just be my imagination, and I have not ran it long enough to see if it is burning off.. To my good luck though the oil in it right now is pretty old and does not...

    Hi, we just bought a 2007 3.6 4motion wagon. Generally we are pleased with it, but I might be having a problem. When traveling about 50 to 60mph, if you lightly step on the gas, the wagon pulls to the left. You have to cut the wheels slightly to the right to compensate, but remember to...

    Hi all, I recently traded in my 2002 Passat sedan for a 2008 Wagon 2.0L FWD. I also have the 2004 Wagon 1.8L FWD. I have noticed that during heavy acceleration like when passing someone on the highway, steering becomes erratic. I'm not sure if this is from crossing over the crest of the...

    My 2002 V6 wagon fwd has just started within the last week making a thud noise when taking off from a stop. I had first noticed it when it was a little wet out and I pulled off from a light and I had thought my tires had lost traction. But now every time I take off it feels like a bad engine...

    This blows. Bad rattling sound and a bunch of coolant shooting out of car this morning. Almost positive it's the waterpump. It has 140K on it.

    Hi, First "real" post on PassatWorld so I apologize if this is in the incorrect section. I have a 2013 NA Passsat SEL TDI, but this shouldn't apply specifically to the TDI line so I'll post it here. Does anyone else have an issue with the stock wiper blades pulling water back into the middle...

    Hi guys. I had my tie rods replaced back in June. I don't drive the car very often, so I've put very little freeway miles on it since then. Yesterday, I was on the freeway and it felt like the wheel(s) was/were riding uneven - there seemed like a wobble at higher speeds (>50), and it was...

    Hello all, I read almost all the threads on this issue but I could not find any satisfactory solution. I have had the problem that my B5, 1.8t, SW is pulling to right. I got the alignment done at Sears. The results came fine. But still it pulls to right so much so on highway it feels annoying...

    Looking for some help. I am trying to repair my sons car, as inexpensively as possible. I do not have vag-com, but willing to get if someone can tell me exactly what i need! Here is what the car does (seemingly only when ambient air temp is above 73 (but does not happen every time it is above...

    I am rebuilding the front suspension on my 03 FWD Passat and want to replace the front bearings on both sides. I can't for the life of me figure out how to pull the front hubs to begin the process. When using a puller, where does the center screw implement on the puller impact. I have tried a...

    On my newly aquired FWD 2000 Passat GLX wagon I was originally planning to do the very common 19x8.5 front, 19x9.5 rear but am having trouble finding the wheels I want in the offsets I want without paying a hefty premium. I have one lead but it is still up in the air. I have an apportunity to...

    Ok, I replaced the engine in my daughters 2005 Passat V6....put it all back together...started the car, put it in reverse....nothing.....nothing no matter what gear. Ck'ed the trans cooler lines with the engine running and no flow. So, I pulled the motor and trans back out and cracked them apart...

    So due to the usual water ingress issues, I'll be pulling out my seats/carpet in the coming week or so to further diagnose the issue. I've clipped the sunroof drains and checked the drain under the battery and they are all clear. It seems to be coming accumulating under my driver seat only...
