    Do they have intakes for a 2014 2.5 turbo passat? I have found nothing on the internet. Is it worth doing an intercooler upgrade? What would have to he changed to upgrade to an intercooler & bigger turbo? How easy is it to swap in a bigger turbo and what's the best computer to install for these...

    So my sister got into a fender bender with her 99 v6 passat the other night and now we are trying to fix it. She hit the bumper of an SUV and pushed the grill part of her car in, damaging the radiator and the part that holds the radiator onto the car (that metal support thing). Does anyone know...

    My car sounds like I'm riding on scalloped tires, but no vibration. What could it be? I replace both front wheel bearings, all 4 tires and front axles within the last year. Again, sounds like, but no vibration. Been living with this annoying sound for a few years now. Definitely coming from...

    The idler pulley on my PES G2 supercharger is going again. I am having a hard time finding a replacement that matches specs, but I have the alternative of replacing the bearings in the current pulley. I have found a bunch of bearing suppliers online, but none that have a specific automotive...
  6. Wheel and Tire Forum
    This is a seemingly random question but I recall my B5.5 having black wheel bolts and black lock bolts (the version where the key is a multi-faceted star vs. what is being sold today). I received a set of what was described as OEM VW branded lock bolts (same multi-faceted star) in silver with...

    Hello, Been a while since I've been here. Posting this here as required, but it may actually belong elsewhere. I've got a 2008 Passat that I'm looking to install a hitch and bike rack on. I've looked at bike racks that mount on trunk lids, but really don't like them. So, I'm thinking of...
  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I've searched around the forum but haven't found any thread talking or explaining this. Ok, so I have an 02 Passat 2.8 V6 with an auto tranny, but the trans leaked too much oil and it got screwed (burned the oil pump and converter). However, I have in my possession another Passat 2.8 V6 with...
  9. B5 Garage
    Background: I discovered the coolant system was filthy (brown liquid) when I changed the oil in my 2003 V6 Passat. I also discovered cracks in the heater core outlet pipe when I was flushing the system (tough luck, oh well). I've replaced the heater core, and ran several gallons of distilled...

    Hey guys, first-off yes I have searched. My 2003 Wagon has 120,000 miles on it and the struts need to be replaced. I've pretty much settled on Bilstein's for the struts so that's taken care of. But unfortunately in my search results most of the threads are quite old. In one of those old results...

    In the midst of a diesel 5 speed swap. Forgot to grab the car harness side of the reverse sensor plug...doh...and have already scrapped the donor car. The 5 speed has the sensor plug on the drivers side and then the wire extends across to the pass side where it goes inside the transmission...

    Is it possible that a bad cam chain tensioner can cause oil starvation to the cam journals?
  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So bought a b5.5 for parts guy said it had a rod knock, started disassembling the motor wanted to get the head off to check for internal damage after finding it was out of time. So my question, when I go to reinstall and do the timing since the cams are out as well, do I just have to get the #1...

    Is there no other place the HC can go?? Maybe moving the Battery to the trunk and putting it where the battery was? Is there any reason why it has to go back where it currently sits? Just curious as it is a decent sized project when replacement is called on. Thanks

    looking for someone to confirm or deny! Bought new Jan 2017 and after driving home 20miles everyday what i thought was the fuel pump continues to run after the ignition is turned off for 3 to 10 min's in my garage. Turns out to be a vapor pump. Dealer claims this is normal- to run after engine...

    So I'm looking at buying these wheels but concerned about fitment. Just wondering what needs to be done to make them fit or if they will fit as it. They are 17x8 ET30.

    I read today that the Euro W8 has a 334mm rotor, and it's exactly the same setup that comes on the Audi TT 3.2. So I got looking at the rotors, to see if they would work for my 17z brake upgrade, but they are VERY different rotors. And now I'm mostly curious why, and hoping someone could explain...

    When replacing the outer joint after disassembly and cleaning Im not sure which orientation the cage ring was in. I could only get it to go back in one way but just wanted to be sure its right. I know the star shaped inner piece has the notched edge toward the transmission, but the cage ring I...
