    Hi, I'm looking for the double DIN radio trim for a Passat B5, part number 3B0 858 069. It doesn't matter too much what colour the trim is although carbon fibre effect would be preferable. The part looks like this (ignore the colour): I can find it on eBay for cheap but it ships from China...

    Hi all, I just bought a 2016 Passat and I'm loving it, however, I am having an issue where my radio volume increases and decreases when I'm driving around. It doesn't happen when I'm sitting still, but even just a simple roll at a red light will cause the radio volume to change. It almost...

    I've got an intermittent problem with the radio I've noticed a couple of days ago. Sometimes when starting off traveling somewhere it would turn on but there would be no sound. I'll turn it off and then try again later and somtimes it would work for the rest of the day. Any suggestions to start...

    Hello, So the radio works; AM/FM, 6 cd changer, when I tap the "SAT" button on the radio, I receive this message "NO SAT RADIO". My SAT unit (mounted passenger side of trunk) appears ok, could it be a fuse? I haven't had water in trunk, and the rest of the radio unit works. Having said...

    I just talked to Best Buy and they told me the wiring harness for a Pioneer touchscreen radio would cost 149.00. Does anyone out there know of a more affordable alternative? 2008 PASSAT 2.O T LUX WAGON

    About the only remaining issue with my 2005 GL I got last October is a crackly radio. CDs and my IPod sound great, but the radio reception is awful. My mast had rotted insulation, so I replaced that first. It didn't help, so I took it to the VW dealer in town and they diagnosed it as a bad base...

    Hi guys, I guess this is the place to start - for a n00b like me. I just bought a 2007 Passat Wagon 2.0T, very happy with it. One of the first things I did was get rid of the stock radio and install a Pioneer AVH-280BT, which worked like a charm. The only issue was that it would not turn...

    Where can I learn about the antenna system for the Passat W8? The Bentley manual has nothing. I'm installing an aftermarket stereo and am having problems with it. The Monsoon worked fine. The aftermarket radio is having a hard time getting a signal when connected to the W8 dual Fakra antenna. I...

    So i read through the how to install but that was for B5.5 and not all the pics would show up. How hard is it to install a single din deck - do i need to use the illumination wire - does the stock radio come out and the after market just slides in ?

    hi all I have a 2006 3.6 model and would like to replace the old radio unit with something newer that has aux/usb input and maybe sat/nav. I have seen a lot of factory units with these options out of china on ebay and am questionable if these units are compatible. I have seen the same radio...

    I'm having a difficult time finding the wire that is only hot with the key-on for a radio install. It is a 2003 Passat W8 with the Monsoon Premium CD stereo. I attached a picture of the connection, the black connection is for power, the tan for the speakers and I don't know what the blue is for...
