  1. Original motor/tranny mounts have to be bad by 180k, right?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My '03 1.8T 5M, w/Giac 1.3 bar ECU since ~40k, now has 180k. No barney blood. No excessive engine vibration at idle, but its not like new either. Shifts are a bit clunky and hard to make smoothly (which I was convinced was DMF failure since that's original also), especially in low gears. I...
  2. My Passat still pulls to the right after alignment, why?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Everyone: I recently had my car's tires rotated (tires are pretty new) at Goodyear tires and after that my car started pulling severely to the right while driving. I went back there to have it checked out and they said that I should get an alignment, so I did. My car still pulls to the right...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've done 2 fill ups and flushes with distilled water, emptying at the lower radiator connection. Today I tried going to remove the bolt in the block to get whatever crud may be in there from the previous owner running the wrong coolant and though I could get my allen bit into the...

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hi all, I am a new TDI owner. Got my 2005 passat with 82k last week. So far it has been running well until today. I was driving to the dog park and the car started to act weird.

  9. Front right turn signal

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

I have a working turn signal, but it is weak, rapid. Side marker turn and rear light at full brightness. Three different flasers...

    Hi all I see there are lots of threads about this. I have a 2011 Passat 2.0 TDI wagon with moon-roof. All sunroof drains are draining except the front drivers side (right side in Oz!). The problem is the drain nipple is underneath the car behind the wheel arch and is impossible to get to...
  12. Front (right side) axle replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did the left side (drivers side) a few months ago and it was pretty straight forward. Was wondering if the right side is just as easy or are there slightly different steps. Torque values would also be greatly appreciated. This is on an '04 Passat Wagon GLS automatic with 1.8T. Thx in advance

  14. Issue with heat on right side. 2009 B6 Climatronic. Air blowing cold but hot on left

    New Member Introductions
    I can adjust the airflow no problem, only that on the right side the air is always blowing cold instead of hot. All the right side is cold air only. Windshield, footwell, body air outlet.... Any ideas?

  18. Right front inner door grab handle is peeling

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Until recently, I thought the only VWs of this era that had that gooey rubberized coating on interior and dash parts were New Beetles. Not so. Passats do, too. So after discovering that both the parts that cover the power window controls on the driver's side plus the right grab handle on the...
