  1. Front brakes crunch after pad and rotor change

    B5 Garage
    So this is the second Passat I’ve had with this problem. 2003 GLX 4 Motion. I changed pads and rotors last month. Was pretty careful, used the pink brake quiet stuff. The problem is when I brake everything works fine up until the last second of completing my stop. At the last moment there is...
  2. 2012 Passat SE front rotor and pad replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Tried to find a video without success. Biggest question is the pads. The ones I've seen have a wired sensor attached, but I can't figure out if my car has any type of active sensor. I've crawled under the car and couldn't see one. The tools needed are basic, but want to confirm that a #7 hex...
  3. Cam sensor cup rotor

    B5 Garage
    2002 Passat 2.8 l V6 changed the cam seal and cap and now getting a p0346. I think I put the rotor/ cup thing under the CPS on wrong. Can someone tell me how the cup/rotor is supposed to go on? Thanks
  4. Hall sender rotor

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all I am trying to check my valve chain timing to see if it is correct. I have just replaced and sealed my valve cover and it is sealed good. Really don't want to take it off again as this was done 2 months ago. I was looking at the hall sender rotor which is bolted onto the end of the...
  5. Brake Pad and Rotor Recommendations

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Looking to install my "last set of pads and rotors". Not concerned with aesthetics or price(within reason). Also not looking to upgrade to a bigger system. I am hoping to eliminate or reduce; rainy weekend rust buildups and premature warping. The car is a DD with heavy use, city and freeway, no...
  6. Binding Front Brakes after Rotor and Pad Replacment...Wierd Situation

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all I have read through many threads here about sticking brakes but my experience has me totally baffled. I have done lots of brakes both for street and track driving so I am not new to this type of work. My car is a 2005 Passat wagon, AWM 1.8t, 5 speed, 160,000 miles. It needed new front...
  7. Right Rear Brake Dragging or warped rotor.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    A little more than a fortnight ago I changed out the rear shocks and brakes on the 02 GLS variant 1.8T with Lucas rear calipers. The back brakes were working just fine for the first week driving around town. No noises, no issues at all. Then I started on my front suspension refresh saga that...
  8. FS: (2) Meyle 8D0698601A B5/B5.5 4Motion/Quattro Rear Rotor

    Parts For Sale
    I am selling two brand new Meyle rear rotors for a B5/B5.5 Volkswagen Passat 1.8t/V6 4Motion or B5 Audi A4 Quattro. The part number, which is a bit hard to read on the box, is 8D0 698 601A. I mistakenly bought these even though I have a FWD. When I realized my error I tossed these on the shelf...
  9. Rear Rotor Size ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I need to do the rear brakes on my 2002 2.8l 4motion wagon this weekend. Does anyone know how to tell if I have the 2" or 2 1/2" sized hub before I tear it apart. The parts supplier says they need to know for the correct rotor. I want to have the parts before I take it apart to do the job.
  10. driver's side rotor will not come off.

  11. Pulsing in passanger front, (not warped rotor)

    B5 Garage
    So what I thought was a warped rotor turn out to not be the problem. I have upgraded from stock to EBC slotted rotors and EBC red pads, just last spring (2014). Started gettting a pulsing from the passanger front upon braking. Shop suggested was warped rotor, seemed odd as I had upgraded to...
  12. Replaces CPS and Impulse Rotor

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Keep getting the code for the Bank 1 Cam Position Sensor even though I replaced it. I finally got time to investigate and found the new CPS mangled and the impulse rotor bent. Here is the image: So I need to replace the sensor and impulse rotor. I have a couple of questions related to this...
  13. Rotor and Ceramic Pads

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My front rotor and pads are still factory installed (after nearly 15 years). A few years ago, I had a torn CV boot and took the car to a shop. He replaced the boot but forgot to tighten a bolt on the protector. The loose bolt make a deep groove on the inner side of the passenger side's rotor. He...
  14. no rotor retaining screw for b5.5?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I was doing my brake job earlier.. Replaced the rotors and calipers... And I found this during the process.. Like the title said, I didn't see any screw to retain the rotor on both sides. And apperently there is actually no place for that at all... Seems like the rotor is hold by 5...
  15. 2012 Passat Front brakes and rotor replacements

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I was trying to change my front brakes and rotors tonight. I got the pads off and caliper, I moved to remove the set screw in the rotor got that off. But I could not remove the rotor at all. Does the middle nut inside the rotor center does that need to come off? Is a big nut like a torx, maybe a...
  16. Rusted or pitted rotor. Opinions?

    B5 Garage
    Here's a pic of a rusted rotor on my 2003 Passat Wagon 1.8T AWM. This is the front driver's side rotor. I searched google for pictures of rusted and pitted rotors but I'm not really sure what mine qualify as and if I will have any problems in a few months when I get an inspection. Here's a...
  17. Front brake pad noise after rotor & pad replacement...........

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 1.8 tip I replaced the front pads and rotors and used Napa premium ceramic pads and premium rotors. I bedded the pads after installation. At higher speeds ( 60mph) when a just gently apply the brakes, it sounds like the drive side pad is making a vibrating noise. When a I apply the brakes...
  18. Both rear brake pads grinding against the rotor. Seems like caliper not retracting

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently bought this car from a friend. And has been fixing it. It wasn't driven for 2 years. I drove it a few times and there was a grinding noise from nearly all the wheels. So today I took out both back tires and checked the brake pads and they have at least half life left. They are all...

  20. Brake rotor confusion

    B5 Garage
    I bought a 2005 1.8T 4Motion Wagon last summer. Just had it in to get new tires (thank you Philadelphia potholes) and I am going to need to redo the brakes soon front/rear. Looking in the Bentley book for specs and I have some confusion. The book only lists specs for 2001 model year and later...
