    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The front passenger tire area seems to be making a strange sound. Visually nothing appears to be wrong with the tire. At first I thought it was a flat tire a couple days ago, but that was not the case. The sound is constant and best heard at lower speeds, though I can hear it a bit at highway...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Went into my fuse box yesterday to see the state of an A/C fuse. When I took off the cover, this cable poked out. Any idea what it is to, and what it attaches to? Don't like the idea of having this metal ended thing flapping around inside a fuse box.
