  1. Info please (Searched). Wagon cargo/hatch trim pieces for purchase?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I think I'm using the wrong terms for my searches but I am looking for the plastic interior trim pieces that are in the hatch/cargo area.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, first-off yes I have searched. My 2003 Wagon has 120,000 miles on it and the struts need to be replaced. I've pretty much settled on Bilstein's for the struts so that's taken care of. But unfortunately in my search results most of the threads are quite old. In one of those old results...

    I think I'm just being a dumba**, but I can't seem to find where this pipe/hose goes to. I'm getting misfire codes in all cylinders/very rough idle. There are probably more vacuum leaks as well. The brutal cold doesn't fare well with the hard plastic 90* fittings. If you could please...
