  6. Passat B5 wagon in the news; not necessarily a good thing

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So maybe you've see pictures of the apparently nice Passat wagon, owned by the guy whom the court kicked out of his parent's house in New York. The story I read implies that he has other Passats in storage, so he's perhaps a PassatWorld B5 forum member?

  8. Slow coolant leak at the lower coolant drain plug

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I noticed there are few drops of coolant on the garage floor. The position is corresponding to the coolant drain plug. Does the drain plug have an o-ring? I tightened the drain plug but no luck. Anyone has experienced the same issue and what would be the fix? Thanks.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was working on my 2003 Passat GLS 1.8T today to replace the valve cover gasket. I broke one of the elbow pipe during putting everything back. The pipe is near the heat shield.
