  1. 2008 B6 Passat power seat not working

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My driver's seat has an electric switch to adjust the seat angle. The switch is not working and the seat angle is tilted too far forward to drive comfortably.

  13. Battery Disconnect Switch

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Does anyone use anything like this? I wanted to get one for our Camry, because it's lucky if it's driven every few months (and I know it has some sort of very low parasitic drain). I have no interest in trying to track it down. Then, I was thinking, maybe one for the Passat would be nice too...

  20. Ignition switch broken?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I believe my ignition switch is broken. Ignition will not turn with out a great deal of force. It spins freely then and will not start but the radio will come on if left in a certain position. Unfortunately the steering wheel is locked out as well. Locked out straight and I can't unlock it...
