  1. What is the most painful thing you've ever had to do to your car?

    Anything Auto
    Here's mine: Anybody who's ever had to replace ball joints on an older car knows it can be a real pain in the neck. My B5.5's wheel bearing went, so I had to pull the steering knuckle to press out the old bearing and press in the new one, and since I'm doing one side, I might as well do the...

    no problem finding parts, lots of problems finding a manual for my 2012 TDI.
  3. 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?
  4. Worst thing you've ever hit while driving?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  6. What is this broken thing?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello All! While working on my haunted 2000 Passat V6 I discovered/broke some other wire. If you could help me identity what it is I would be greatly appreciated. I know the pics are not very good and lack arrows but I do not have access to powerpoint or editing software. If needed I can go...
  7. I don't get the whole Patina thing.......

    Anything Auto
    A few weeks back, I went to the annual VW show put on by the Stateline Volks Folks in Rockford, Illinois. I still can't believe what won Best of Show. The prize went to an old, dilapidated-looking Beetle from the mid-1960s. The body had more rust than visible sheetmetal. It had a roof rack...

  9. The intake valve thing

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I put this job off for a LONG time......our car has 125k miles now and the intake has never been off. Finally was getting some misfires in January, so I set up an appointment with a recommended local indy to clean things up. Picked the car up this afternoon. He said, "On a scale of 1 to 10...
  10. What's the weirdest/most annoying thing your Passat does?

    New Member Introductions
    I have an 03 Passat with 237k+ miles on it, so obviously it has a few problems. A buddy of mine has a 00 Passat and I swear as soon as one of our cars had a problem the other one decided it also wanted to have the same problem. So with that being said, what's the most annoying recurring problem...

    Off-Topic Forum
    Hey yinz guys. Been a long time since I've been here. Just wanted to drop a line and say hello. I still drive a Lincoln MKZ and have a Passat 2005, but have a work car that I drive 1000 miles a week that's a Toyota Camry. That car is a work horse. I have to say, that while I didn't know it...

  13. Help me fix this thing

    New Member Introductions
    Well I'll proabbly post this in the garage section when I can but my Passat runs like crap, if it even Runs at all. It shudders, the CEL flashes, coolant is leaking because the CTS doesn't have the correct o ring (or even the right coolant) plus some vacuum diaphram under the throttle body is...
  14. Name This "Thing". Cuz I have no idea what it is.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So yesterday while washing the Wagon, I accidentally pulled out my "coin holder" (at least that's what I thought it was), and underneath was some random hole. What is said hole? And is the rubber part covering it actually a coin holder or something else much more awesome? Here's the "Coin...
  15. Funny thing about a dead AGM battery

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi! I thought i should share my experience, so no need for help or anything. So the car came with an AGM battery since it has an Eberspächer installed (a diesel block heater). One day i realised the radio (RNS 300) hasn't been playing anything. The only volume i could adjust was telephone. So...

  19. Almost there, one last thing the damn sun roof won't close.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So it's been a while. My passenger side cylinder head took a dive during a tensioner failure. Replaced the cylinder head and associated components, timing belt, water pump, tensioners and pulleys.. you all know the deal. So I crank it up, it purrs like a kitten. Rides really nice on the road. So...
