    I'm looking for a RIGHT hand side one of these for a 2000 B5 Passat Wagon. I found one on ebay and then the seller cancelled. Any idea where I may be able to find a used one? Apparently they don't make the part any more. VW VOLKSWAGEN OEM 98-01 Passat Taillight Tail Light Lamp-Mount Holder...

    Ok so I've been working all of the kinks out of 99 1.8t and I'm almost back to square one. I want some new taillights but the aftermarket for the b5's kinda stink (b5.5's have better options) to do a taillight swap with another car. Anyone have any opinions on some taillights that would flow...

    I recently got Lamin-x vinyls for a set of euro tails I got from a member, not knowing how dark they'd be I figured I'd get some LED tail & turn signal bulbs to avoid getting pulled over. The bulbs went in without issue and worked good when I tested them on the bench but once plugged in to the...

    No idea where this wire goes it's unconnected trying to figure out where it connects to and if it's the reason why my bulb is not working. When I press on brakes the right rear tail light both come o and on the left rear the bottom one fails to come on. But when the lights are turned on it work .

    I need a driver's side taillight and the trunk latch from a donor B5.5 All the local pull-n-pay's seem to have broken taillights. I may be able to source a trunk latch from them, but I think I'd rather give my $ to a fellow Passat lover. Thanks!

    I replaced my drivers-side taillight assembly in my B5.5 wagon last night, and there was something odd about the replacement assembly, which was a used part from a lighting specialist on eBay. (Headlightsrus; highly recommended... it shipped fast and was VERY well packed.) In my old one, the...

    When my lights are on, all 4 "rounds" of my taillights are on. However, my driver's side lower round is only half on. It's dimmer than the others. I changed the bulb, and it still does this. What could be the problem, if all of my taillights function normally except for this one bulb being...

    I replaced my B5 with a 2009 B6 wagon and I'm puzzled by the inner tail-lights. The center is obviously the reverse light but what is the ring of LEDs around the perimeter for? I can't find any switch or level which enables these LEDs, not the brakes, not the running lights, not the turn...

    original OEM piece off of my 2003 B5.5 wagon with 101K miles on it. replaced the original due to some light condensation that would form after going through the warm water, high pressure, car wash in winter. this only happens in winter and after going through the Auto Spa Hand Wash located in...

    The taillights on my new-to-me Passat are both uniformly foggy, almost frosted looking as shown in the photo. I tried a headlight polishing kit on one of them, but it had no discernable effect. It is not moisture on the inside, but rather the plastic having almost a light frosted effect. The...

    I have a B5 4motion wagon. The right tailight doesn't work. I have replaced the bulb several times but it never look like it is burned out. Any suggestions?

    So my left (drivers) side taillight is out... kinda. If I turn on the headlights, the rear light goes on as it should, but when I press the brake, it doesn't light up brighter as it should. Even with the headlights off, the taillight does not light up under braking. The center and right brake...

    I really don't know how anyone has installed LED taillights without modifying their bulbs. As discussed in other posts, the 1157 dual filament bulb should be the correct bulb if it weren't for the two contacts nubs on the bulb base, located 180 degrees from each other. The proper base has the...

    I had oem taillights with tint I got a huge fine for them. Are there any after market taillights that are really nice?

    Okay, this one's a doozy. So I bought new taillights. They look great, that's not the problem. No, the problem is that the wiring diagram is totally wrong and they aren't quite working the way they need to. I'll mention that I have a B5.5, but these were listed as 97-00 MY tails. I figured...

    Left (driver) side. Part number 3B5945095L. Used- pulled from my '99 Sedan. If you have a broken taillight lens, here's a cheap way to get legal. $20 + shipping or pick it up in Manhattan. In good condition overall but has a 1" crack in the lens. Hard to see in the picture here (you can see...

    My 1.8T 1999 Tiptronic is keeping with the back reverse lights on when i'm going foward! I realized this when a bus stopped behind me (i saw the lights reflected). So, i removed the lamps and now i don't have any reverse light... Please, somebody knows the switch on the Gear shift? Somebody...
