  1. Split steering rack boot on 1.8t FWD MT.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So this last weekend I discovered that the driver's side boot over the steering rack has split in two. I'm assuming it would be a good idea to replace it. Looking for input on what it would take to replace both steering rack boots. Details on the car: 2003 GLS wagon, 1.8t awm, 5sp MT, FWD...
  2. MAF sensor causes engine to cut out for split second otherwise runs fine

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am not asking for help or advice. I am posting this as a solution that worked for me in case anybody else has the same problem. My car was running fine except intermittently the engine would stop for a split second and then start again and continue as if nothing had happened. It shocked me...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  5. Alt/P/S belt has a split about 6inchs long

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Looked under the hood of my 2000 1.8 and noticed the farthest back belt had a 6 inch split in it. It's split exactly in the middle and not the whole belt. The belt and tensioner were replaced when the timing belt was done last year. So I don't know how long it has been this way since the...
  6. Split CV boot

    B5 Garage
    While doing an oil change and motor mounts, I noticed a lot of grease on the passenger side wheel. The boot is split wide open. Needles to say I'll be ordering a new axle from raxles. I was just wondering if this amount of grease was normal?
  7. Mid-2008 VIN split: FSI to TSI engine?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Does anyone know which month in mid-2008 the VIN split (for last FSI engine and first TSI engine) occurred? Prefer the TSI since it has a timing chain -vs- a timing belt. Still researching, but I think the HPFP, 'soft metal' cams and follower of the FSI carried over (with obvious material...
  8. 1.9TDI AFN Split hose in PCV system - can't identify it

    B5 Garage
    Hi I have a split hose in the PCV system which is blowing and spraying some oil around; it's blown the foam from under the engine cover to bits and made a nice oily clumpy mess everywhere - as you can see. I've done a lot of googling and searching around PassatWorld - but I can't identify the...

  10. Swap fixed rear seat with 60/40 split - can it be done?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2000 4motion with a fixed rear seat. The interior was in horrible shape when I first bought it, so I finally got around to buying all new black leather. The rear bench I received is a 60/40 split. Will it fit easily or will I have to get creative? I've done some searching and I haven't...

    Parts For Sale
    I bought these on a group buy a few years ago. These are genuine OEM from Germany--not the cheap Hong Kong junk. The blue tint reduces glare, the split/aspherical eliminates blind spots, and you lose the idiot message "OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR" on the passenger side. See...
  17. CEL was on for a split second, then went away

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Last night, driving home on the highway and going up a slight hill, my car hesitated a bit, the CEL came on for a split second and then everything went back to normal. It seemed to be driving fine the rest of the way and this morning I had Autozone scan it, but no codes came up. Any ideas?
  18. Split Fold > Fixed rear seats

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi I've just bought a leather interior for my 2001 passat. The front seats and door cards are fine. The rear is in, but as it's a fixed rear rather than split fold which I had before, I'm missing something. The headrests have a bracket type thing they attach to, it looks like there would...
