  1. New custom window regulator!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ;) Positives: Your window won't suddenly fall into the door after the POS dowel breaks Your regulator clip won't snap (and window fall into door) Both handles still work The door will never permanently lock itself (without access) Upholstery door panel can be installed in 10 seconds to cover...
  2. Door lock mechanism latch is corroding - pulled regulator panel and lock

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok, so all my doors have this happening now, where they don't open on the first pull (mostly after initially unlocking). I know how each door has to reset back to its original position before the door can be re-opened, and about the indexed cable on the outer door handle, and have played with...
  3. 2010 Komfort Wagon, Right Side Rear Window Regulator

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    A few days ago in raising the right rear window I heard what I would describe as a muffed snapping sound. The window stopped lifting, yet the motor was still turning. I tried the switch both ways, but no movement. I was able to close the window by hand. I have not removed anything yet, but I...
  4. Bad ground or voltage regulator?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Using accessories, like hazard/flashers, causes other lights to dim, or wipers to slow. At idle, hazards cause a faint whining sound, WAAA-aaa-WAAA-aaa-WAAA-aaa, lower pitch when the hazards are lit. Also, sometimes the car doesn't want to crank. It randomly won't want to crank on the first try...

  7. Removing rear door glass from regulator

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    How in the world do you remove the rear door window from the window regulator assembly? I've searched my Bentley for all years. It only has a 5 sentence blip on how to install the lock pin (window to regulator) but that's it! I'm not at all sure about removal.
  8. Preventing Window Regulator cable rust?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Any one got any ideas? About eight months ago I had to replace the drivers door window regulator as the cable had rusted to the point of snapping. The new one just did the same thing. Do i need to be putting any grease on this thing? I have a tube of white lithium I could smear on there. But...
  9. Is there a better window regulator out there?!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, I've had my 99 Passat for 4 years and have had to change all my window regulators at least once in that time frame. Now my driver side front and passenger side rear window are broken again. Every time this occurs I can hear loud popping once or twice before it completely fails...

    B6 Garage
    So I'm helping a friend replace the fuel pressure regulator on his 08 Passat 4motion 3.6 and after finding the location of it, can't seem to figure out how to unclip the harness. Is there some sort of special tool or way to remove it? Seems like a stupid question but I don't want to break...

  12. Success!! Replaced the drivers side front door regulator.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I replaced the drivers side front door regulator on my 2002 Passat. It took me about three hours and 8 slices to my fingers from the sheet metal inner door skin. I think if I had to do it again I could do it in under 90 minutes. I bought the part on Fleabay for $36. 98 05 VW Passat Window...

  14. Faulty wastegate bypass regulator valve?

    New Member Introductions
    My daughter has a 2003 Passat that has recently been cutting off while idling. Usually it will restart, but recently it's had to sit for a period of time before I can restart it. I took it to Autozone and got a P0299 code which the guy said is the wastegate bypass regulator valve. Would this...
  15. P2293 (regulator) code on NEW HPFP

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    P2293 (regulator) code on NEW HPFP (2.0t TSI) Howdy all, I just replaced the HPFP on my 2009 Passat (2.0T TSI) after getting the 04506 (Fuel Pressure sensor Intermitent) and 00369 (Lean Bank 1) code (yes I know different code formats, had it diagnosed at different shops lol). SO anyway, after...
  16. Window regulator blues.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This past week the window came "off the tracks". Would go up cocked sort of. Finally got it in the up position. Bought some E-bay clips to replace the broken clips I thought. Pulled off the door panel, and only broke 4 of the 6 fasteners :banghead: The clips were not broken, the pulley system...

  18. Replacing Window Regulator Clips

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My drivers side window has been binding over the last 6 months or so making it difficult to go down. Well, it finally got to the point it will only go down half way. So after taking off my door panel and pulling back the metal panel, I can see that it is definitely the binding of the plastic...

    I have a Left Rear window regulator w/o motor but have no use for it. I sold my 1999 B5 Passat some time ago so I have no need for this part. I am moving and was cleaning out the garage when I found it. It's a genuine factory part, number 3B5 839 461 A I don't want money for it, I'm just not...
