  1. Passat does not swing

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi I dropped my kids off at school and when I wanted to leave, my car refuses to start. It started earlier. There is no click from the starter, just silence. I have replaced the solenoid last year, could it be the solenoid?
  2. Hoping for some engine swap tips

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello Everyone, just joined for help with an 03 passat wagon. I've read SoundGuyBob's thread re: TB failure and head rebuilds twice so I'm suitably warned about the craziness that might ensue. Need to know a little about checking out a used engine and what to expect with an engine swap. It's...

  4. Does anyone have a Swing wheel to get rid of?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My wife has OEM 16" Swing wheels on her Passat. She had a flat tire a few days ago and the rim is toast. I have checked a few online places for used wheels but they have not been able to locate one so far. Does anyone have a Swing wheel they'd be willing to sell? If so, please e-mail me at...
  5. Swing Control arm

    B5 Garage
    Recently my 99 Passat has been making a clunking noise when hitting a bump, took it in to my mechanic and he said the "swing control arms" are bad on both sides. Has anyone else experienced this? Where is the best place to buy these? How much of a job are they to replace? Any useful info would...

  10. Wha are the chances that my rear swing arm bushings are worn on an 02?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I feel like there may be some lateral free play in the "rear end" of my 02 FWD with 61K on the clock. I'm not at all sure that's what it is but I'd like to rule it in or out anyway. I sometimes think I feel some side to side movement in the back of the car, especially in a bumpsteer, wheel-hop...
