    My 2013 Passat now has about 65,000 miles on it and is on its 4th heater core. I knew the heater core was clogged because there was no heat on the passenger side, but I didn't want to spend yet another $1,000 to fix it. The dealer claimed the heater core was a "wear item" and made us pay each...

    I have an ‘04 4motion wagon with the V6 that I had to replace the radiator/condenser and housing for after hitting a deer on the highway. Even though the car I took the front off of was the base model and this is the GLX with climatronic everything matched up perfectly. Bolted it all up and...

    Hello I have Passat B5.5 2004 1.9 TDI. The issue is known for over 2 months and looks like after close inspection that radiator is leaking from bottom. There is some kind of rubber on both sides at the bottom, and on side where you can drain coolant from radiator there is leakage, have anyone...

    okay so I did a belt job on my Passat 1.8t 2001 and while putting the car back together I noticed the lower radiator hose would not clip or lock into place. I’ve been trying for days and I can’t get to work. I need help. Many times I’ve thought it was on but just popped right off. I’m gonna...

    Hi all, 2001.5 Passat sedan 1.8t AWM, 174,800 miles. I've been working on the timing belt job from hell for the past two weeks. I first thought I had everything done, then I cranked it and the car wouldn't start (it would only crank). After realizing the belt was off 2 teeth I tore it apart...

    Hi All, I have a 2003 Passat wagon. I recently had coolant issues due to a pipe, but that was replaced and now there is coolant coming out of a hole in the radiator. I am not sure if something was removed from this hole and was not put back. Can anyone identify if something is supposed to go in...

    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...

    Hi, how difficult is it to remove and replace the radiator core support on a 2012-2015. The bottom is broken off and the spoiler screws into it . Looks like doesn't take much to break everything in the front. Spoiler, inner fender wells and radiator core support. Looks like difficult to get...

    I have a leak of coolant showing up down under the bottom d/s front of the radiator. The drip is located right under the red petcock plug. I see some whitish gunk on the backside and the fins are wet just near there on the right side edge of the radiator. I assume that the radiator is shot but...

    Hey everyone, so I just bought my 2001 Passat 1.8t manual transmission with ~145,000 miles a few hours ago and I'm apparently an idiot because I never checked the coolant or looked under the radiator cap. I checked the oil and it was a little low, but there wasn't any signs of a leak or any...

    Yea for me, my daughter rear-ended someone and ended up banging up the passenger front side of her 2003 Passat. The corner of the radiator support broke, as well as bumper cover, headlight, etc. We've removed and started to replace the radiator support, but we are unable to find the large...

    Need an opinion. Last night coming home a deer jumped out and hit me. I have a 2001 B5.5 V6. The damage is bent hood and all the plastic on the front grill is broken. Bigger issue is now the radiator is bent where the deer hit it. It looks like it is cracked and leaking at the joint on the...

    2003 Passat GLX 2.8L Climatronic When I turn on the Air Conditioning, the electric/secondary radiator fan turns on and goes immediately to High speed. It stays at high speed until I turn off the AC. Also, I think this is related, the compressor does not cycle on & off once it drops to a...

    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...

    Hello everyone, especially members well versed in the mechanical and troubleshooting aspect of the B5.5. About a week ago took one of the most stupid decision of my life, used a sealer in my B5.5 in order to prevent any small radiator/cooling system leaks in the future. (advice seen in a video...

    I have a 2007 20.T Passat, and my daughter recently ran the nose over one of those parking lot bumpers. It tore off the undertray and messed up the side skirts a bit, no big deal. But it also bent the shaft on the auxiliary radiator fan motor, such that the fan jammed against the shroud and...
