    I'm tired of the mirror cover tabs breaking on my '99 Passat's visors, so I'm swapping for a set of visors from an '00 model. (they switched from flip-up to sliding mirror covers that year.) Passenger side visor is nice and clean, swap worked great. Driver side visor has what look like rust...

    I am getting rust underneath and spreading on the black molding on the b-pillar of passenger front door. Does anybody know if this molding can be removed without wrecking it?

    Anybody have any luck with the rust warranty? I have rust around the rear liscense plate lights on a sedan, lights no longer work, and obviously not from a stone chip. Is basically full perforation now, so I'm taking it to the dealer this evening to get photos taken to send to VW. In Canada by...

    I have these all over my light silver truck. I can get them off eventually with enough elbow grease from the chrome and usually the painted metal, but they are a real bear to get off the painted plastic surfaces. I found a link in the "Look here first" post on the topic, but it is broken...

    A little history: I bought a used 2001.5 GLX, and noticed that both license plate lights were out. I pulled out the lights and found that the clips that hold the bulbs were totally rusted out. I ordered two new ones and put them in (in late 2010). Yesterday, I noticed that one of them was out...

    So I take of my roof rack and discover on 5 out of 6 bolt, peeling paint and rust. went to my dealer, open a claim but it's 100% sure that vw would do the job and paint all my roof. So I'm wondering if a black roof on my blue wagon will be nice, and does I have to paint the top of the hatch...

    Greetings All, Just turned 177k on the odo and I was doing a bit of last-minute cleaning before the winter and I noticed a bit of rust around the hinges that connect the trunk to the body of the car. A friend of mine said that there should be some drainage holes as part of the assembly to...

    My B5 is in need for a repaint... and it has some body damage. The previous owner decided to do some welding work on the quarter panel, and it left it a bit rusty. However, the rust didn't seem to spread anywhere else (yet). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that VWs are treated for...

    So my car has a rust spot on each fender, at the bottom by the moulding. One has a lot bigger spot then the other, barely anything. THe rust does not go all the way through so its still healthy. On the trunk, only on the underside by the license plate lights is there rust. So I got quoted...

    My B5 wagon rear hatch has rust along bottom of window. I need to pull out glass to clean up rust, then paint it. Is pulling and reinstalling glass a big deal? Where might I get reflex silver paint (in spray can) and a new seal for window? Is the trim around perimeter replaceable? Thanks, Dave

    I just bought a 05 Passat and this is the first rain I've seen it in. There is a small amount of surface rust below the rear plate and on top of the bumper right below the plate. I do know the dealer had to put in large screws for the tags to stay in. Do you think this is just metal...
