    My CEL came on and im getting code p2181. from what i've read it has to do with the coolant system. Replacing the coolant temp sensor is cheap and easy so i figured i'd start there. A friend of mine works at meineke and said that their infromation says the CTS is underneath the car near the...

    So I've bought a parking sensor set off amazon and want to install it on my 2001 Passat B5.5 wagon. Hwever, there's one thing bothering me - where to put the sensors? I wanted to align them about where the red line on the photo is (not my car on the picture though): However, I just noticed...

    Anyone have any luck with them? I ordered a $12 ebay special. It has a one year warranty and a 30 day full refund policy if it doesn't work. Figured I'd give it a try. But I have my doubts at that price.

    Hi everyone, I have a base line 2010 b6 which comes without parking sensors. I have a brand new genuine parking sensor box lined up part no 1K0 054 630 B, but the seller is saying it would not fit the passat while it would fit other VW i.e. Golf V/VI, Golf plus, Touran, Scirocco, Jetta, &...

    Hi all, I posted on here yesterday asking about coolant temp sensors and since then I have replaced both and my problem seems to be sorted. I see the majority of models covered on here are the 1.8t and the 2.6v6 which must be the main models distributed in the US? Mines a UK model and therefore...

    This is my first Passat, it is an 04 glx with 75,000 miles and I am assuming the breaks are the originals. Last night the check breaks light turned on and I am wondering about how much time do you have before you have to change them (I know it all depends on how much drive)? Thanks in advance...

    Has anyone ever heard of or seen the rear wheel speed sensors rot and fall out of their housings on the FWD models? I'm hoping all I need is a hub and sensor and not the subframe. Anyone with any info please lmk

    My neighbor has a Passat and it is losing coolant. We didn't see anything above but under the car the plastic cover was coated in either coolant or oil or both. I can't see where the source is. Everything looks relatively clean above but there are two sensors which are covered in something. It...

    ok, bently shows a picture of passat exhaust system with post cat 02 sensors clearly behind the cats, makes sense. Under my 03 4motion v6 I have sensors coming out of the front of the cats themselves, with two more sensors in front of the cats in the exhaust pipe visible from the engine...

    OK - so last weekend I went to replace the Bank 1 Sensor 2 O2 sensor. Because of the cable ties, I ended up having to remove both sensors, and it turned out that the brown connector was connected to the O2 sensor on the passenger side, and the green connector was installed on the drivers side...

    The check engine light (CEL) comes and goes off and that has happened for last 6 months. The CEL is on for a week and then turns of and does not come again for a few weeks. Yesterday I checked the code and got P0135 ( bank 1 sensor 1) could be bad. The CEL went off afterwards and is currently...

    For the 2003 V6 Passat, there are two cats (left and right). Each cat has a pre-cat O2 sensor and a post-cat O2 sensor. Thats 4 sensors, total. I remember reading that some of these sensors cannot be fixed by using the O2 Spacers because some of the sensors are used by the ECU to determine...

    I know this keeps repeating but I am stumped. When I bought the b5.5 2004 1.8t, it had the cel/check engine light on. After getting it vag'd I replaced the crank speed sensor. The cel never came back and runs great except for the feeling of motor holding back (like its governed) and wont let...

    Like title states....I want to use a larger diameter map sensor on my 2005 that came with the smaller diameter sensor, as I'm getting an intercooler with the bigger flange. The harnesses look identical, and the physical layout is the same.
