  1. Snow Chains - Who uses them on their Passat

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Do any of you run snow chains on your cars occasionally? What wheel/tyre combo are you running? Do you get intereference issues between the added snowchain and your suspension. Here in NZ we are fond of snow chains for getting up ski fields and across the alps during mid winter. I currently run...

  6. MAF Wires damaged. How do I change them?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had taken out the MAF over the weekend to clean it. Apparently, I haven't been very careful with the wiring and they are damaged. Have had several issues in the past couple of days and now I am convinced they were all related to the damaged MAF wires. Today I cranked the engine and went on to...
  7. Mechanic giving me a hard time with the ABS: Had them fix my CV axles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I recently got my CV boot repaired by a local mechanic. This was the second time in 6 months that I have had to take it in. The mechanic messed up my ABS the first time and refused to fix it since he could not scan the car (Aftermarket radio problem) to see where the ABS was acting up. I told...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Thought it would be an easy swap cause they looked so similar. boy was I wrong! Got a set of cheap headlights with ballasts out of the yard. Thought a simple lens / housing change would be in order but found out they were completely different so I had to go another route The question became how...
  10. Would love some thoughts on two topics (and one of them may prove I'm an idiot)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, Last August I had a 2003 GLS 1.8T B5.5 wagon with ~146,000 miles fall into my lap for a song. It ran just fine, but the original owner wasn't much for maintenance (among other things, he'd never done the timing belt). So needless to say, I've had this car in pieces in my garage...

  12. Dual intercoolers. Anybody run them?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My local yard has an a6 and a b5.5 passat almost next to each other. It is amazing the similarities between them. I ended up pulling some parts to swap over in my passat and noticed the pass side intercooler. I know this one is setup for the 2.7t but I'm also aware that b7 A4s and the high...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I accidentally left my set of keys on my mailbox door. Went back to retrieve them and the keys are gone. What can I do to prevent the person who has my key from taking my 2005 Passat TDI? Is there a procedure out there to activate the immobilizer for that particular key? Thanks in advance.

  19. Breaks, how long do you have when sensors say to check them?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is my first Passat, it is an 04 glx with 75,000 miles and I am assuming the breaks are the originals. Last night the check breaks light turned on and I am wondering about how much time do you have before you have to change them (I know it all depends on how much drive)? Thanks in advance...
