  1. Super Annoying Rattle / Vibration

    New Member Introductions
    Good evening all...I have been struggling for a while now driving my 2012 VW Passat 3.6L. There is some sort of awful vibration or rattle coming from what I think is behind the passenger back seat. At first it almost seem like some sort of blown speaker because that is kind of what it sounds...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey all, I've got a 2002 Passat. I recently wanted to start doing more DIY repair work on my car because I've been sorely lacking in car knowledge my entire life.

  3. Super pissed off! Suspension related please chime in

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I ordered a complete front suspension kit (control arms, tie rods, etc). When I bought the car it came with 4 new KYB shocks in a box, so I figured since I'm in there taking crap apart, might as well order springs. I ordered my springs and I got the wrong ones, even though I got asked for my VIN...

  7. Flushed hydraulic system with Pentosin Super DOT4 - Not happy with results

    B5 Garage
    So a couple a weeks ago I flushed out my hydraulic system with Pentosin Super DOT4, and the results are poor at best. Call me a liar if you will, but I'm giving it straight. Before the flush there was no difference in pedal feel whether the car was hot or cold. Now when the car is cold the...
