  1. SAIP O Ring Size(s)?

    B5 Garage
    Anyone know the size of the O-Rings for the two flanges on the Secondary Air Injection Pump? I've got a 2003 down hard in the garage, and my 2001 DD has a SAIP problem. I checked the hoses and vacuum lines to the combi valves, and those all look good, so since I have one that I'm not using, I'm...

  3. Torque Converter Seal and Bearing Ring

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Behind the torque converter oil seal there is a type of thrust washer the shop manual refers to as a bearing ring. There are two flat edges and other parts are contoured round to fit the circular opening. There is an oil passage hole on the right hand side where the seal and Bearing install...

  5. Audi RS Rims - Hub Centric Ring Size?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Purchased a nice set of Audi RS rims off Craigslist for my Passat B7 to replace the crappy hubcaps, but when I went to have new tires put on them the shop told me there were only two hub centric rings. I didn't have time to ask the questions I should have, so now I need to know what size rings I...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is the first year in a while that I haven't seen multiple posts about oil cooler o-ring failures during the first really deep cold snap!

  9. Snap Ring Pliers as an Alternative to the VAG 3387 (pin wrench)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I got a coolant leak that is almost certainly coming from the water pump (or O-ring). So essentially, I am preparing to do a TB job without actually replacing the TB since I did that about 50K miles ago (Aug 2012). Since I'm not replacing the TB, it follows that I won't have the specialty...
  10. Loose ABS tone ring? Any ideas fellas??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Been having a weird issue with my ABS, front right sensor code. Got the new sensor and installed today, same code. When cleaning the hole I noticed that the thin metal ring (TONE RING?) was loose as I could move it back and forth with a small screwdriver, and that would clarify the noise I've...

  12. Inner tail-light LED ring

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I replaced my B5 with a 2009 B6 wagon and I'm puzzled by the inner tail-lights. The center is obviously the reverse light but what is the ring of LEDs around the perimeter for? I can't find any switch or level which enables these LEDs, not the brakes, not the running lights, not the turn...
  13. Clicking noise from steering column, slip ring suspected

    B5 Garage
    So the other day I just heard a strange clicking noise coming from the steering column. Sounds are difficult to describe, so I made a short video showing what the problem is (you may want to increase the volume on your pc speakers, sorry for that). When spinning the steering wheel completely...
  14. Key Fob Question - Broken key ring portion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I obtained a key fob from the last owner as he believed that the fob was the backup for my 03 passat. My current key that I've been using has a broken clip portion so I can't actually attach it to a key ring. I attempted to use the backup fob to open my car and it would not work, nor did it...

    Hi all: I bought some 17 inch wheels second hand. They're Sport Edition. I do not know what the model name is. Stamped on the inside of the wheel are various lug specs including the VW 5 x112, the Made in China thing and this number "WK18817X7JJ". I googled that number and got zero. They fit my...
