  1. AWM thermosat housing cover; How to separate from hose

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just replaced thermostat, but I think that thermostat housing cover may have a leak. I could not see how to separate the plastic housing cover from the hose at plastic connector joint. What VAG trick have they implemented here? I didn't want to break the thing as I didn't have a replacement...
  2. Oil pan won't separate from block. Any tips?

    B5 Garage
    I'm changing my oil pump in response to low oil pressure warning. I've got all bolts out (8mm and 16mm), engine raised, subframe lowered etc. The pan won't separate from the block. I have used a rubber mallet, a block of wood and ball peen, thin putty knife and hammer even a thin chisel...

  5. Braided steel wire connector on exhaust - separate part?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2002 GLX V6 with 75k miles. Strong exhaust noise that I check out this morning. Seems like the left braided wire connector at the front of the exhaust has broken/torn from one end. Its roughly level with the front door hinge to give an idea of positioning. 2 questions: 1) is this a separate...
  6. Separate Fogs on 2000 B5

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm pondering putting DEPO projectors on my wife's B5. But, the OEM headlights in the B5 have integral fogs in the housing, using an H4 for the high beam/fog combo. The DEPO projectors use an H7 for the high beam instead of the H4, which means that I would lose the fogs. I've read some recent...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Wondering if its possible to get the glovebox lid cover backplate off the lid cover in a B5.5? I've seen the infobase writeup for a B5 but I cannot see any screws on the B5.5. Is it glued on or clipped on? Any ideas how to separate them (without breaking the whole thing) so as to fix the handle...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anyone else think that the General B5 discussion (Club B5) is becoming very, very crowded with questions that should be covered in the B5 Garage section of the forum? I feel as if now that the B5 garage is somewhat of a sub-section of club B5, that it is being almost completely overlooked. I'm...

  11. Do all the Passats have separate front tweeters?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am thinking about buying a 2004 Passat GLS 5spd manual/ leather, etc. I do not believe it is a Monsoon radio, although the front of the radio says Monsoon. Is that just a standard radio regardless if it is Monsoon or not? My question is, will this passat have separate tweeters up front? IF...
