    Hi, I have a 2000 Passat B5 1.8 Petrol, which currently has the MFA instrument cluster (i.e. the half height screen which displays distance travelled, time travelled, instant MPG, average MPG, average speed) which is backlit blue. Using VAGCOM I have determined it is part number: 3B0 920 922...

    To start; 2002 Passat 1.8t, 5sp auto, 53k miles. So I bought this little cream puff at the end of February. It is not a daily driver as I have a company truck right now, so with that in mind I am trying to do what I can for her (Frauline Inga). I have a CEL with code P0441 Evap Emission...

    New 1.8t passat owner. 126,000m TB and O2 sensor replaced at 110,000 That's the only car fax listed repair. Although there are some newer vac lines. I need to replace the remaining two. Besides the obvious oil/filter change what else should I be doing to maintain? My car has been having...

    Hi, I've got couple of questions which I believe are may be related to the same issue. I recently bought a Passat 1.8 B5, and when I bought it the remote locking and electric Windows did not work. I discovered this was due to corroded wires going to the CCM in the passenger footwell, so I...

    Hello all, I've got a 00 2.8 v6. I just installed a vacuum gauge tonight and I'm curious about my numbers. The car has 230,000 miles. At an idle it sits at 19 inches vacuum. Snap the throttle and it will hit 0, snap back to 22, then settle back to 19. It is plumbed closest to the manifold. What...

    I recently purchased a 2003 W8 Sedan and I am super pleased with the sound it makes. I want to make it louder and I have seen some really sick videos of the car straight piped online. Even though I am really in to cars I have many friends who are not and I do not want to be seen as that douche...

    I just got a 98 golf gl with 221,XXX miles on it. Engine runs like a champ but I made the mistake of opening the coolant reservoir while the engine was still hot. Coolant splashed everywhere and I noticed it was a burnt orange color so I'm thinking of taking the tank out, cleaning it, refilling...

    A few questions: 1) My car is loud. 2000 GLX, AWD. Not necessarily odd noises, but the regular vrooom of the engine is much louder than other cars. My VW service station says it's normal. Not sure how to let you all know what it sounds like. But, in general, to people find this car larger...

    Been looking at some 2013 GTI s. I found one at a good price, and if I could get them down a bit more it could be a deal. It's a two door which is a little annoying but drives great, and the hatchback means more cargo room than my b5.5 sedan. However, I can't find a record of the 40K mile oil...

    I have watched FCP's videos on how to do the control arms upper and lower and outer tie rod ends. I plan to do this work starting tomorrow. A few questions. First, I am aware of the FCP nut size problem. Second I know what a PITA the pinch bolt is. I've taken the strut tower out before and I...

    Hello Everyone! I can't say I'm a newbie on here because I was on the site probably 8 or more years ago when I had a 99 Passat with the 2.8L 30V engine with manual tranny. Now, I am back and wanting to buy a 08-13 CC. I just want the 2.0T engine. What I want to know is; are there any bad...

    Hey there I'm a Passat wagon owner (2004 b5 wagon 1.8t). I just bought the car from a friend about 6 months ago and I'm curious about suspension mods. Can I buy a coilover set only (looking at FK Streetstyle right now)in order to drop the suspension to a minimum of say 1.6 or less or will I need...

    I"m changing both of the post cat O2 sensors on my 2005 B5.5 ATQ V6. 1: there are four O2 sensors but I only see 3 plugs on the passenger side when I open the hood. Shouldn't I see 4 plugs along the cowl? 2: The bank one sensor plug in the engine compartment is a different shape than the bank...

    I am coming closer to my 30K warranty period (at 22k) and I am having some quirky things going on mainly with my transmission. I thought this would be the best place to get some insight and see if anything is actually wrong. The main annoyance I am getting is the erratic "feel" of the 15-20mph...

    2000 sedan 1.8t I wanted to know if I have the proper sunroof panel as in late or early VIN. I have checked other threads and all the pictures are missing. And would look like the proper part number for the Pearl grey panel because VW says it has about 6 different listings. Do I need to...
