  1. Daytime running light on Drivers side seems either too bright or misaligned

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After following my daughter's car in traffic for a few miles, she stopped to let me know that my driver's side light seemed too bright and aimed differently from my passenger light. It was still daytime, so these were my daytime running lights (DRLs). I sort of confirmed her observation next...
  2. No pwr windows or mirrors and no auto locking doors but everything else seems ok

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have a 99 Passat sedan GLS with AEB and 5sp ... went out to go to work this morning and my windows weren't working. While on lunch I pulled fuses for locations 5, 14, 37 that were shown in a couple of searches on here and put in a good test fuse but still no windows. I also...

  5. 2000 Driver's Window Seems To Have Come Loose...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 GLX AWD. The driver's window seems to have come loose from something. It still goes up and down with the window mechanism. But if the window is rolled down and i shut the door, it rattles a lot. Much more than the other windows. I found the video on repairing the mechanism on the 2002...
  6. '03 Passat with 45mph surging / seems ok with cruise control

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    New to VW, like it so far, but I need to get it running right. I have read a few threads that have a similar problem to mine, but don't seem to have a good conclusion...
  7. Passat World seems to be quite idle.....

    Community Help
    I've technically been a member for a few years, but was unable to post until recently. I was excited to finally be able to post thoughts on here, but I've noticed that many posts are quite outdated. This is disappointing in light of the fact that the Passat is Volkswagen's 2nd-bestselling model...
  8. Turbo responsiveness seems to fade on longer drives

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've recently done a couple of drives at two hours or more, and I suppose it could be my imagination, but it seems like after the first hour and a half or so, the turbo doesn't seem to respond as much or as quickly, for instance while going up longer hills or pulling away from stops. I'm sure...
  9. Play in shift rod (not in shifter, it seems)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey how you guys doing today? I have a 2002 b5.5 1.8t 5 speed and the slop in my shifter drives me crazy, doesn't feel precise and german like it should :) I went under the car to look at the shift linkage bolt, and it was tight. That is when I noticed that the play isn't in the shifter, but...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  12. 05 A4 1.8T mid-range acceleration in 5th and 6th gear seems slow...

    Anything Auto
    like the title says - it seems like the mid-range acceleration in my B6 is a bit off. I should be at the lower end of boost, but should easily be able to get into that area - but the acceleration seems a bit slower than normal. suggestions on what to check?
  13. 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...
  14. newbie, b6 owner, wagon seems have some electrical gremlins lately

    New Member Introductions
    flasher goes randomly and trunk release on the dash or the tailgate itself seems to be acting up.
  15. Shifter seems loose/wobbly.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is it me or is everyone else's b5 shifter wobbly and feels loose. When it's in neutral and I move it side to side it moves freely instead of having that stiffness to it. Is there any adjustment and if so will it hurt anything?
  16. Sorry if this seems like spam.....

  17. What part is this that seems to be leaking on my 2002 passat 1.8t AWM?

    B5 Garage
    I looked under my car, from Passenger side and took these pics. There is a small puddle of something that I'm hoping is coolant dripping off this...I'm not sure what it is...It looks like its near the passenger side axle....any ideas??
  18. Outer tie rods replaced, feel uneven wobble, seems slightly pulling right

    B5 Garage
    Hi guys. I had my tie rods replaced back in June. I don't drive the car very often, so I've put very little freeway miles on it since then. Yesterday, I was on the freeway and it felt like the wheel(s) was/were riding uneven - there seemed like a wobble at higher speeds (>50), and it was...

  20. Car running but leaking oil, seems like something is missing?? (Pic)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey everyone, Finally go the passat running with the new turbo but it is leaking oil steadily from the oil filter housing area. Next to the dipstick there is a very obvious hole that looks as if something should go there. I'll see if I can get a better pic as this one is not very revealing. I...
