  7. CEL diagnostic help requested

    B5 Garage
    Here is my VCDS scan, following a CEL last week. (For what it's worth, triggered on a very low-speed parking lot drive following a cold start.) The airbag B+ intermittent has frequently appeared in past scans (true on my 1996 A4 as well), so it may or may not be related to the cam position...

  11. Coilover adjustment- opinion requested

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After putting on the new wheels it's much more noticeable to me that the rear is a tad lower than the front. I'd like some opinions. Should I lower the front a bit, or raise the rear a bit? I'm kind of leaning toward lowering the font, but I already have to be pretty careful driving over bumps...

  13. Volkswagen Repair Wiki (Help and Input Requested)

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    All, I have been a loyal reader of these pages for several years now. However, I still get frustrated, as I know you all do, when great writeups on DIY are posted, but then the photos go away, because somebody moved providers, or they forgot to update the storage locations, or whatever. I have...

  17. Taking the plunge into self-maintenance - advice requested

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First I will admit I have not been the most careful, kind, and loving car owner to my 2001 Passat until recently. This was spurred by the oil pump failure on the 1.8T that happened about a year ago. That repair and the costs motivated me to take better care and maintenance. Since then its...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know the OEM air box on the 30v is about as good as it gets, but I've been wondering about the CAI and the benefits the turbo guys talk about. Is there any advantage to putting a CAI on a 2.8? Any disadvantages? thanks
