  1. Back window SUN SCREEN / "Parcel Shelf" installation question

    B5 Garage
    I've searched this forum but didn't find anything... So I'm interested in installing the Sun Screen Shade / Screen in a 2004 Passat sedan -- the screen that you pull upward through a slot in the parcel shelf, and then, when the screen is fully extended to the top of the back window, you secure...
  2. Front sunroof drains - weird leaks near sun visors

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On both sides of the car water is somehow getting between the roof and the headliner, mainly around the sun visors. Heavy rain is certainly enough to make this happen, but over a long enough period of time, light rain is also sufficient. The two front sunroof drains work well enough that water...

    What black sunvisor will fit my b5 Passat, from which car/cars?
  4. Sun or moon roof problems

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I came to discover that the moon roof cover sounds very broken on the inside. Opening it sounds okay. But closing it is a different story. First the actual glass closes fine, but the shade/cover for it sounds screechy and sounds like the motor is working to hard to close it. When I manually...
  5. Folding windshield sun blockers

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking at the things that you unfold and put up in your windshield to keep the sun out and the temperature down. Are there any differences in the ones you get from like Auto Zone compared to others Online or from the dealer? I don't need it to say VW or anything. I just want to keep the...

    WTB/WTT Section
    I need a driver side sun visor for a 99B5 with a functioning mirror cover. My cover is broken and falls every time I open it. I'll take a home link visor too if it's compatible.
  7. Sun roof drains? I see no sunroof drains..

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So the rear passenger side of my wagon has started to fill with water every time it rains. Did some reading on here and general consensus is that the drains are blocked. So I rip into the rear section looking for these so called drains. Apparently accessible behind the CD player ect. Not a damn...
  8. 98 Sun Roof Replacement - the whole shabang, now it no worky

    B5 Garage
    A quick history as to why I'm at this point - also contains pertinent information along the way. This last winter we had a crap ton of ice for like 2 consecutive weekends. While at work late one night, I inadvertently hit the sun roof switch while going for the dome light switch. Seeing as...
  9. Sun Shades & Cell Phone Holders

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I've been on here trying to get together some information on stuff that I NEED to fix and replace. But I feel now is a decent time to get some extras. Does anyone on here suggest a certain sun shade for the windshield? The current one that I have now (worked fine on my toyota) is way too...
  10. Sun damage in tail lights?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 2003 Passat has what looks like a ton of tiny little cracks all over the inside of the lenses. Both sides are like this (I'll get photos later). I'm wondering if it might be sun damage? And is there something I can do to "fix" it without buying new assemblies? If I took the assembly out and...
  11. Almost there, one last thing the damn sun roof won't close.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So it's been a while. My passenger side cylinder head took a dive during a tensioner failure. Replaced the cylinder head and associated components, timing belt, water pump, tensioners and pulleys.. you all know the deal. So I crank it up, it purrs like a kitten. Rides really nice on the road. So...

  14. Retrofit HomeLink sun visor garage door opener on 2013 Passat SE

    New Member Introductions
    Has anyone tried to retrofit or install the HomeLink sun visor in a new Passat that didn't come with it? Local VW service center is of no help. I've seen discussions in various forums on older model VWs, but nothing for the 2013 Passat. Still can't believe this isn't standard. Thanks.
  15. WTB: B5 beige passenger sun visor

    WTB/WTT Section
    Would prefer one that has the sliding mirror cover (would also be okay with one of the newer ones with the flip-up cover). it broke a while back but it was very costly new, and there was no need at the time. Currently there is a regular passenger, so it would be nice to have something that...
  16. Sun Roof/Shade

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have just gone through a disaster with my headliner falling. There is a shell held to the roof by various devices. The headliner is glued to this shell. The shell has to be removed, and new headliner material must be glued to the shell. I had some guy do it for me who claimed to know the...
