    Hi all, This my first post here although I've found lots of helpful information on this forum since I bought my Passat about a year ago. When I bought my 2001 Passat TDI 4-speed automatic with 262K kilometers on it it was running great. However, not long after I bought it I noticed a slight...

    2003 B5.5 1.8T Passat Wagon 92,000 miles; very light usage .... During the last two months or so, about every week and a half when I take a right-hand turn, red lights on my dash come on saying there is a brake fault and to get service (the brakes are working fine). I suspected low fluid and...

    07 B6 Passat Wagon. 40KM. I have checked the rotors and the worst is .002 out of true. The brakes work fine. If you stop hard from 60MPH it is uneventful. However, if you are slowly stopping for a red light, lets say from 30MPH, there is a very slight pulsation (lurching) . You cannot feel it in...

    Hey, I'm new to the forum, I searched and didn't find anything on my problem so: Is anyone else's lighting system slowly frying itself? I had the pass side lo-beam go out last year. When I went to replace the bulb I found the plug was fried. I ended up having to replace the wiring harness in...

    Is this just by coincidence or is there a built in safety mechanism that slowly locks your brakes up till you can't drive if your coolant level drop dangerously low. The pedal was as hard as a rock. So I pulled over, noticed there is a pretty bad leak coming off a plastic piece that bolts up to...

    I've had this problem with the pass seatbelt for some time now and was hoping someone with a bentley could shed some light on how to fix it. The pass side seat belt needs to be fed in so it will retract. What do I have to do in order to fix this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated. Dave

    I have searched for people on clubB5 with this problem and have not yet found a post. It all started over the summer. One day my gas cap door wouldn't open with the button. So i brought it to my mechanic and he said the motor was fine, but it wasn't getting enough current from the battery. He...

    Do you ever notice how long it takes the car to slow down after you have taken your foot off of the accelerator. It seems like the throttle is delayed by the computer. Is this from drive by wire?

    I have a question for anyone who has their passats hooked up. :crazy: I recently purchased my '03 Passat 1.8t, and I love it, but there is only one thing that's wrong with it, whenever I floor the pedal from a complete stop and it accelerates very slow, now I don't know if that's normal, but...

    My door locks seem to be slowly getting weaker when locking and unlocking car. It started with the back door locks and now the only door that will lock and unlock using the remote or the button is the driver side front? What could this be? I charged my battery yesterday and it didn't help...
