  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It just so happened that I recently became an owner of a 1998 Passat 1.8t. The vehicle belonged to my brother in law, and since he borrowed money for a new car from my significant other and I, we got the Passat as the first down payment. So, a few words about the Passat then. I have never owned...
  2. B5 Garage
    This is a picture of part number 035133989A (superseded by 06B133989C). It connects the air intake hose to the diverter valve via the smaller attached hose, on the B5 ATW engine. Is the depression in the top of the plastic elbow by design? My gut feeling is "no". It looks like the clamp...

    My local indy shop wanted an hour to change the coolant temp sensor at the rear of the head, plus 1 1/2 hour to bleed the coolant system afterward. So I figured I'd try and replace the CTS myself. My first noob mistake was trying to release the connector before pulling the sensor, as I...

    These were taken off my car when she had only 73k miles. Both work great and are in basically pristine condition. I believe the monsoon radio has a slightly stronger amplifier than the stock radio, so upgrading to this radio may yield slightly better sound from your speakers. Pictures speak...

    As the title states, I am looking for front fender liners for a B5, not B5.5. Mine have been worn through in the forward part and I am looking for a pair, or even just one side that has no holes in it all besides the mounting points.

  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had been noticing the bit of purple fluid on the mount bracket each time I changed the oil. I never felt that it was serious so I let it slide for several years. Recently, I found I could buy mounts pretty cheap from Autohauaz. I put them in today. After removing all the bottom hardware and...

    I thought I had a wrong set of mats in my car but when I checked at the dealer, all mats seem to be shaped that way. Why is the skinny portion not covering the floor properly, any ideas?
