  5. Are double din switches different to single din?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have a 2001 Passat B5, and I've performed the double din conversion. However, when I install my original hazard and rear demister switches, I find they are a very tight fit and actually so much so that they get stuck on/off when pressed. I've tried two different double din center frame...

  8. 2003 B5.5 Eats Combination Switches (high beam/turn signals/cruise control)

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 B5.5 1.8T FWD manual wagon.

  12. Early- and Late-VIN Sunroof Switches?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I know I have the early VIN switch, but if I were to order a late VIN panel and switch, would it still work? I seem to only be able to find my color in the late VIN, and I'd hate for it to end up being a waste of money if it doesn't work. Thanks in advance.
