  1. Brake Squeal

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, a couple of months ago I changed my front brake pads and rotors on my B5 and now about 2 months later they have started squeaking, I have tried EVERYTHING to get them to stop! Re-greasing where the pads slide on the caliper bracket, chamfering the edges of the pads, and applying CRC...
  2. Squeal during braking and turning right

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2007 2.0 wagon .. for the last several months it has been making a squealing noise when braking (only during the final stopping stages, not when initially applied) and when turning right. It sounds like a belt whining. My first thought was the accessory belt tension, though it's weird...
  3. 2004 2.0 ALT petrol engine problem (squeal noise over 3k rpm)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, what a great forum for passat owners! I have already spent a fair few hours going through everything on here but haven't come to any conclusion yet so thought i would ask... Over 3k rpm the engine makes a very loud high pitch squeal noise, it can only be heard over 3k rpm as far as i can...
  4. CV Joint Squeal - Regrease Possible?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey Everyone, Quick question, I've got my front tires, brakes (rotor, caliper, etc.) off and car elevated off the ground. Put the car in 4th gear and allowed the axles and such to rotate. Then using my hand I've revved up the car so that the speedo reads a little over 20 mph, when the squeal...
  5. Squeal when making a turn with the AC on. What the?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    When I turn my AC on and make a turn I get a really loud squeal sound. This usually happens for the first one or two turns and then goes away. I never get a squeal with the AC off. The squealing only happens with a combination of the AC on and while making a turn, once the car straightens out...
  6. Finished the timing belt/persistent belt squeal on start

    B5 Garage
    So, got everything (mechanical) back together. The closest I could get the timing was with the cam sprocket less than a half a tooth advanced. That should be alright.... right? Either way, it started and ran well for a few minutes last night. Still haven't driven it, but that'll take place...
  7. wierd squeal when in reverse with AC on

    B6 Garage
    So Like I said my '06 Passat is now making a wierd squeal when going in reverse or when just starting to go forward, but this only happens when the AC is on. And only lasts for a second I am assuming this is a belt issue. What belt could it be? Also my wife told me the car started "put...
  8. Strange Squeal at Idle

    B5 Garage
    Hi folks, I'm new here.. I have a 98.5 Audi B5 V6.. I've have been combating the strangest squeal sound when the engine is idling. I'm joining here hopefully to see if the collective wisdom here has run across this one. It's definitely related to crankcase vacuum of all things. Engine warm...

    B6 Garage

  12. 2007 2.0 FSI - pcv failed. What's the sqealing noise?

    B6 Garage
    Hello all, I have a 2007 B6 wagon with the 2.0 turbo FSI engine. The pcv failed and I have since replaced it but I concerned about engine wear. My wife drove the car for a couple hundred miles with the pcv broken and at idle the engine made a horrible metal to metal squealing noise. It only...
  13. Brake squeal, but all looks good

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    2007 Passat 2.0 Wolfsburg, 25,513 miles (just change the oil and wrote down mileage ;) ). This is my wife's car and she's been having a problem with the brakes squealing fairly loudly when applied. Only seems to happen after it's sat, and goes away after a good hard application. I just...
  14. Creak from rear brakes with parking break on getting in / out

    B5 Garage
    My 2002 1.8t wagon has this loud creak when the parking brake is applied and I get in and out of the car. With the brake on and I rock the car back and forth from the roof rack it sounds like old rusty teeter totter. It is less of a noise when really pulling hard on the parking break but still...
  15. HELP! Loud deep squeal, Not brakes!

    B5 Garage
    2004 B5.5 V6 Girlfriend got a little excited behind the wheel while backing out of her driveway in MY car :mad:. She pulled down the driveway, car dies at the bottom. Started it up again, and now I'm hearing a lower pitched squeal coming from under the car, possibly the engine bay. I got the car...
  16. W8 rear brake squeal

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ya, I know it gets boring but another brake noise thread. I've done all the search thing and got helpful tips but none directly for the vented W8 rears. I did find out about the AZ tool rental for the pistons which is a good thing. I had loosened one caliper to inspect and when I realized I...
  17. Need Help!!! Squeal noise!!!!!!!!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today I drove under heavy rainy and showy condition without skid plate. I drove about 300 miles. When I started my car at night and drove around the neighborhood, I started to hear squeal noise from either radiator or engine. As I hit gas, I started to hear louder squeal noise. Also I do...
  18. Loud Squeal at all RPM's?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I've got this loud squeal the happens in all gears at all rpm's. Sounds like its coming from the front right side. So i'm assuming its turbo related. There's a great chance it is the DV as I have yet to replace the sh!t stock one. Are there any other possibilities? A/C Tensioner?
  19. Heater fan has developed a squeal

    B5 Garage
    Whenever I run the heat on 2 or 3 (or 1 if I'm going 80mph+), I hear a squeaky wheel inside the dash. I'm guessing it's the heater fan? Do you think I can just WD-40 it and fix it? And does anyone know where it's located? I didn't see a write up on anything that would involve removing it.
  20. Can I put new pads on old rotors? My PBR Ultimates squeal and rattle . . .

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey Guys, I have a 99 1.8T. About 3 months ago I changed all of my pads and rotors with PBR Ultimate pads and Brembo plain-faced rotors. My pads are now squealing VERY VERY loud, and there is also a rattle in the front end. I took the car to the dealer and they said that the rattle was due...
