    I have a 2000 V6, 5 speed manual, front wheel drive variant. I am confused about whether this car has a CAN bus wiring system; I think it does, but can anyone say for sure?

    Mobile Electronics
    Looks as though our Passat is headed to the wrecking yard. Before she goes though, I would like to take the stock sound system out of it and install it in my VW Eurovan. Is this something that can be done, by someone who knows little about sound systems (me!), without too much trouble or money?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys My OG fuel pump went out in my A4 last year (cross posting to this forum because didn't get any response from Audizine). Replaced it with a used one from a parts car I had, and low and behold the check valve in that pump doesn't work (rest of the pump works great). Car takes multiple...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I finished my timing belt/tensioner/rollers/coolant pump job on my '05 A4, and man does it feel good after driving a worn-out F-150. It may not be as perfect as AndreasPassat's engines, but still took almost a month to complete, working on it very part-time. Yes I know this engine is B6, not...

    Mobile Electronics
    I recently purchased a 2003 wagon. It had a CD/cassette/radio head unit--nothing said Monsoon on it. I just installed a Sony double DIN HU and like it so I started thinking about adding new speakers and maybe a powered sub. The challenge is that Crutchfield says that I should not have...
