    I went to the VW dealership last week and they couldn't figure out which part it was. The connector that snaps onto the oil pressure sender is the part I need. I assuem this connector comes with the wire too. Can someone help identify this part so I can get a new one ordered? The car is a 1.8T...

    Something is seriously wrong with my car (AND PASSATWORLD - I'm locked out of my own thread!) Is someone available to help with critical timing belt question??? I went in to grease the dowels on the tensioner pulley and the tensioning lever. Didn't think I did anything to change timing, but...

    Noob 2008 Passat Owner....well, it's my kids car at college. I am well-versed in working on cars, American Late-Model cars lol, but this one is puzzling me since I can't find any parts diagrams for the Passat. Daughter came to her car a few times in the last week to discover that the battery...

    This is an addendum to JayTheSnork's B5 sticky about cowl area leaves and debris. LINK I posted a Mk3 GTI pic there but thought I'd update with a pic from my B5. Referring to that post it is important to also clean the leaves from your front inner fenders. I would do this AFTER you clean the...

    So I think I successfully replaced the gasket and sealed my pollen filter against leaks, but in the process I lost one of the round plastic grommets or whatever they are that go under the wiper shaft and the plastic cowl that clips in under the windshield. I saw it fall in one of the gaps...

    Our '99 1.8T wagon just keeps going despite my son's casual attitude towards maintenance. We recently changed the OE turbo for an Ebay $110 unit that seems to be working fine, so-far. Now it's time to change the 18-year old control arm set. This is the same kit from CXRacing that I installed...

    A/C not "that" cold anymore. Bad expansion valve? Pressure readings/diagnose issues! Guys, The weather down here in a JOKE, it's something like 40ºC by midday (105 ºF). Only now I'm realizing how weak my A/C system performs, I can't get that nice iceberg breeze from the vents as before, only a...

    After about 13 years of ownership, 162,500 miles, and waaayyyy too much time spent here (with over 5,000 posts!), my period of B5.5 ownership is soon coming to an end. Hans, my GLS 1.8T M/T Anthracite Blue Wagon will soon be headed out of my garage. I had decided that while he may (or may not...

    I did the basic parts of my 160k yesterday (new cabin filter, engine air filter, spark plugs) and put in a new set of PFR6Q's, same as I've always used. When I cranked the car afterwards, I immediately noticed that the engine is running smoother. (And this is not the placebo effect; I had...

    Hello, I've just bought a 2015 Passat Limited NMS and have learned through this forum that many features are disabled from the factory. I want to enable the rain sensing wipers, convenience windows, and any other cool tricks you can do using the Ross Tech cable and software. I was wondering...
