    Hi everyone, After I bought my 08 wagon, I noticed that it somehow was missing the rear passenger seatbelt. I've purchased an oem seatbelt from the dealership and am now looking to install it. Does someone have step by step instructions on how to install the new seatbelt (preferably with...

    We've been doing some interior upgrades on my daughters winter car, and we picked up a set of B5.5 leather seats for her B5. I've got the pigtails for the floor wiring and I know I have to splice in the airbag connector. The problem I'm having is with the seatbelt. The B5 seatbelt has two...

    We've got a 2004 Passat Wagon. This morning I discovered that the front passenger seatbelt won't extend. It's retracted, and if you pull on it, it instantly locks. You can pull gently, hard, down, sideways - Doesn't matter, the belt doesn't extend. Anyone seen this before? We've had the car...

    I do not believe that there is a difference between B5 and B5.5, but if there is, I will need it for a B5.5. Specifically Grey in color with a working wiring harness attached. Airbag light is on, and it seems to be pointing to a faulty harness.

    Passat estate TDI 00 - swapping out rear seat with later model I have a Passat estate TDI 2000. The rear seat, which splits in two and folds down, has a lap belt in the middle. I want to have a standard seat belt in the middle rather than the lap belt. My understanding is that from 2003/2004...

    Daughter got tangled up in her seatbelt at the end of a long trip, and we couldn't get it to release so had to cut it. This is for a 2005 Passat GLS wagon, right rear belt. Will VW cover a new seatbelt in a case like this? If not, how do I identify a proper replacement part, it sounds like...

    I know on most cars (my 97 jeep gc) my friends 03 toyota tacoma and others I've been in when you turn the car on the fasten seatbelt chimes and/or the dash light blinks till you buckle up. My 02 passat glx only gives me the "fasten seatbelt" on the MFI and then thats it, whether I buckle up or...

    I have both of these lights come on when I start my engine (airbag fault is somewhat delayed). I just had some upholstery work done on my driver's seat (outside edge that gets all the wear). Is there a chance that the upholsterer pulled the seat and did not do a good job of "hooking" the wires...

    I have a 04' passat and my female end is broken. If you are parting out a passat or any VW that has the same seatbelt (the whole part that bolts to the floor), Please PM me. I live in Richmond, VA 23231. Please figure in cost of shipping. Thanks.

    This is a summary of the "repair" of my drivers side seatbelt. First, there are numerous post including this forum, over the dangers of the pyrotechnic explosive used in the pretensioner of the seatbelt tensioner. I used a lot or precautions (gloves, goggles, long screwdriver, etc) until I...

    We bought my wife's 02 B5.5 Passat V6 4motion wagon from a VW dealer a few years ago. It has a seatbelt chime that dings once when you 1st start the car and thats it. Nothing after that, even if the seatbelt isn't fastened. Is this the correct functionality? On my 02 Jetta GLI there is a...

    It just stays as far out as you pull it, in order to make it fit around your body, you have to manually push the seatbelt back into the side door panel. I tried taking a good look at it today, seems like something is holding it down, is there anyway I can remove that so it will retract? I don't...
