  1. 2003 B5 ate a spark plug - rolling value?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, the title says it all. #5 cylinder was hungry and ingested some or all of the spark plug. Needless to say, the engine runs like cr*p. Borescope shows a pretty beat up piston head. No idea what other damage may exist. Any ideas on value as a donor body?
  2. 2016 Passat - Coin rolling around in drivers side defrost vent

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Just purchased a new 2016 Passat S a couple weeks ago and there is, what I believe to be, a coin rolling around in the front drivers side defrost vent. Any idea if the vent can come out and/or how to get the coin out??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok so I picked up this 1998 1.8T Passat about 3 weeks ago. It was my best friend's uncles' car. He said he didn't drive it anymore and to come get it for free if I wanted it. Needless to say, I grabbed it quick. I bought a battery for it recently, installed it and the next morning I went outside...
  5. ABS / Grinding Noise at Rolling Speed

    B5 Garage
    So after having new front arms fitted yesterday my car now makes a grinding noise when you apply the brakes softly at rolling speed, the brake pedal also judders and sinks a little as if the ABS is kicking in. This has never happened before, present as soon as I left the garage. I took it back...

  9. coasting / rolling to a stop....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Maybe I am just used to other cars but for some reason my 2000 1.8t seems to have a slight bit of resistance when rolling to a stop. Almost like it is downshifting too soon or the brake is stuck on slightly. When I release the brake while stopped the car moves so I know that the brakes are not...
  10. Fender Rolling Question

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    When rolling the front fenders on a b5.5, there's a screw at the 12 o'clock part of the fender. How did you guys roll it there? Should i just toss that screw or roll it with the screw there? Thanks!

    Hate to say it, but if American automakers had some decent cars ready, this would be a big opportunity to get back some market share.

  16. Rolling fenders on a b5.5

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    For you b5.5 guys, how did you roll the front fenders? Mine rubs right where the bumper meets the fender and I think that part can't be rolled correct? I want to lower the front more, but it's already rubbing sometimes at this height.
  17. Rolling Fenders

    B5 Garage
    So I have a dilema... At the last Waterfest, Speedy and Bluebayou convinced me I needed spacers. Indeed they were right, and a set of 10mm for the front and 20mm for the rears did the trick, my B5 had a sick stance. However, with my car being so long, as I go over bumps, my tires push out my...

  20. Coins rolling around under shifter

    New Member Introductions
    Just got a 2006 2.0T love it. I can hear coins rolling around under the shifter. I am pretty sure it's coins because the cd player was not working. When I took it to the dealer, they told me coins were inside and it voided the warranty on the radio. Then I noticed the noise when I had the radio...
