    .... and I don't care!! :) I dread the Passat doors, and only a regulator or regulator clip breaking would force me back in. Properly dealing with the water seal is the biggest bitch. I use that 3M strip caulk, which works great, but is horrible to manage. It's such weird behavior, it used...

    Bought the inner axle boot replacement kit to have it changed ON A RAXLE and for the hell of it it does not want to come off. I already destroyed the whole thing and it wone come off. Supposedly original caps are press on and should come off but this is not the original one so who the hell...

    Hey guys, I'm finally finishing up all the needed maintenance on the Passat (full timing belt job, valve cover gaskets, PCV system) and I'm wondering what I can do before filling with G12. The previous owner ran the car with green coolant for who knows how long. Is it enough just to fill the...

    I've had the car for about 5 years. Only maintenance I remember doing was.... Brake pads + rotors, changed oil + filter twice a year. Planning on getting my timing belt + water pump replaced in the near future/long past due? I would really like to get this car to 250-300K miles guide me...
  5. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    So I purchased these new headlights for my car. I bought them in black instead of the stock chrome (or silver or whatever). Anyway, I am having a hard time getting these suckers out. I couldn't figure out how to remove the front bumper, which seemed the easiest way to remove them. Any direction...

    I am not having fun with my first vw Bought it wrecked but it was sitting for a while Changed gas got it running smooth but wouldn't idle Came back two days later and the passengers floor was wet and we all know what that means ccm Took it apart and the whole computer was submerged in water...

    My drivers windows will go halfway up and it won't go up farther with the motor or if I try to pull it up. Can I pull the inside panel off while the window is halfway up? Or, do I need to raise the window and disconnect the clips before I can take the door panel off? If I need to raise the...

    This is just a FYI for anyone who has to crank excessively to start, and the usual things like CTS or purge valve were not the cause. I recently posted about my A4 loosing power infrequently, then totally quitting on the road. It turned out to be a fuel pump wire, in the tank, that had broken...

    My 02 Passat GLX 4mo Wagon has an exhaust leak, but I think it might be very early on, possibly still in the engine bay since my AC vents suck in hot air, I can feel warm air coming in around my knees/kickpanel area with the air off, and it just sounds like it's toward the front. My question...

    I have BMW wheels for a 1994 BMW 318i that take a 225/50/R16 tire, can I mount the Passat's (2013 Trendline) tires of 215/60R16 and if they can will my MPH and odomoter be affected?

    After being fed up with paying the dealership way too much money I have decided to do the work myself. 2005 GLS 1.8T 4 Motion. 85K miles. At the end of March I will be doing a timing belt install (along with all of the various other things. I am getting a kit from Blauparts) I will also be...

    02 30v v6 tip automatic. No cell. From stop if I don't push gas very easy jerks before it gets moving. I can't just push pedal and go have to ease into it. I do have trouble with shudder while cruising below 2000 rpm with cruise control off. Would that be same issue as my take off? CTS? Thanks.

    I repairing my 30V V6 in a 2001 B5.5, and part of that involves new cylinder heads. I'm reinstalling the cams, and want to double check the timing on the cam chain. It comes down to 'how to count 16 links'. As you know, there are supposed to be 16 rollers between the notches. As you can see...

    I was trying to take out catalytic converter from the passenger side to solve long pending P0421,P0431. Looks like top nut got completely fused with the bolt. Even after soaking the nut with pb bluster for good 2-1/2 hr it came out with piece of broken bolt. Other 2 did not try yet. I am...

    I figured that I might need to use my friend's presser, but is there any other way? What's the best method to take this sucker out? Thanks for the help!
