    Hey everyone new to this forum and new to VW’s so bear with me. I picked up a 02 Passat that needed a new cam tensioner. The guy I bought it from said he replaced it 3 years ago (did the pump and screen also) and he didn’t want to do it again. (Probably should have been a red flag lol hind...

    Hello, I have a 2003 1.8t Passat automatic. Earlier today I parked my car, and 5 minutes later I went to go move it and the starter showed no signs of life. No clicking or no turning. I determined that the starter is fine by putting direct power on it, so I began to mess with the relay. I pulled...

    For the love of mankind.... how do you get that stupid electrical connector that connects to the solenoid? It looks like it has an orange tab of some sort on the top and let me say.... it is not an easy feat. Frustrated

    My recently-acquired (last Feb.) '05 4Motion Wagon with AWM engine and Tiptronic (B5 #5 for me) recently began suffering from symptoms I've seen described here quite a few times: the starter would intermittently fail to energize. The solenoid would click, but it would not move far enough to...

    I replaced my starter. Removed two connectors on the oil pan to allow the removal. Disconnected the battery prior to the task for two days. When I completed the replacement the vehicle started fine. I didn’t drive it but let it run for 20 minutes. Shut down the car and tried to start it and...

    Having an odd starting problem that has been an intermittent issue for years, but is now becoming a more consistent (and highly annoying) occurrence.. Car will start to crank normally when starter is engaged for about a second. Then the starter makes a loud clunk, pauses for about half a...

    I still have my 1999 V6 passat, which I bought new 18 years ago. Because my commute for many years was only 4 miles, the car has only 130,000 miles. I'm in the middle of trying to replace the starter, which refused to budge after several months spent without starting (story below). I removed...

    My son was driving his 2004 Passat 1.8T (195,000 miles). He was stopped at a light. Light turned green and when he was accelerating, he said the car lacked power, then died. He tried to start it but it wouldn't start. Turn the key and it makes a weird whirring noise. The serpentine belt rotates...

    Back in the states after 18 months in Europe. My 2001 passat wagon as been sitting the entire time and I'm trying to get her started. I put a new battery in today but the starter doesn't engage. I just hear a few clicks...not sure if it's the solenoid or a relay. Any advice on what and where I...

    Electrical problems will always be my weak point, but thanks to this great , helpful community , I can usually get a situation remedied with your advice. Anyways, little backround history. Due to the Passat only being front wheel drive, I don't drive it much when the snow starts falling and...

    had a customer call into me today at work with a 99 passat GLX i'm guessing stating that water came into the floorboard soaking his ccm. now his issue is that he's not getting any power to the starter relay under the dash at the main relay board. does anyone have any wire schematics that he...
