    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  2. Saying Goodbye is harder than you think

    B5 Garage
    1998 sedan 1.8T 5spd manual. I love this car. I've loved it since I bought it gently used 10 years ago. I've loved getting to know the B5 - AND you the B5 family. What do you think is a fair price to sell my baby? It has some minor interior/exterior blemishes and the ABS module needs to be...
  3. Whoever did the last timing belt job goofed it I think. How do I fix it?

    B5 Garage
    Today I started the timing belt job on our 02 V6 Passat that we picked up last spring. I know it's had it changed previously but I'm not sure when, so doing it to be on the safe side. Here's my problem, I'm at the point where you set the crank at TDC and attach the cam locking bar. Well, one...
  4. I tested and think starter is bad - help confirm?

    B5 Garage
    Yesterday I was running errands and (after the second stop) my car would not crank (turn over). All other electrical items were operational. I had it towed home. 2000 VW Passat ATW 210k Once home, I charged the battery, cleared codes, and then followed this guide...
  5. What do you guys think my b5 votex lip is worth?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok so. Here's the story...I found. In a junkyard. It was cracked. I had it professionally repaired by a body shop and it :thumbup: extremely good. As far as I know these are not common at all. And I just can't seem to figure out what to ask for it? I know it's bin repaired and that hurts the...

  7. Welp, I think I messed up

    B6 Garage
    I had bypassed my n75 valve and boosted a little too high then all of a sudden misfire, and all of these codes.. So here's all the codes I have, with a ridiculous amount of misfires... 008487 001618 000400 000051 000835 008966 000768 is there a relay or fuse that controls all of these? Car...
  8. I think i got a blown head =(

    B5 Garage
    This morning, i turned my car on and heard some valve rattle, then it went away right away. But i was like, Im going to check my oil real quick. Pulled the dip stick and it was super frothy, i figured, ok i have a bad PCV system its cold and moist out, probably just little moist. Let it warm up...
  9. OBD Eleven (Bluetooth)...Let me know what you think

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My nephew in England had this OBD Eleven adapter for VW, Audi, Skoda and such. He no longer needed it and mailed it to me last week. I got it this morning. Downloaded the app on my phone and plugged it in. It seems pretty good. There were a few faults that my OBD2 Scanner, or my mechanics heavy...
  10. Stubborn axle flange 10mm (I think) triple square bolt

    New Member Introductions
    I am doing a CV axle replacement and have read all the forum posts and write ups on this. I am very clear on the procedure, but am just having a sticking point with a triple square bolt on the axle flange. It's the last bolt I need to remove to remove the axle. I have sprayed all the axle...
  11. Vibration and tire question (I think I know? Please confirm)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Before I had my rotation done, at 55-65 mph it would shake a lot and vibrate, I had the tires rotated and now the vibration is kinda gone-ish, but now it's more towards the rear rather the front. I need the two new tires, get all four tires balanced/re-balanced, and the alignment in my car is...
  12. Anyone here think the CC could be on VW's chopping block?

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I've never driven or even set foot in a CC, but I always liked the looks of them, but this model's sales numbers are awful here in the US. Does the CC sell better elsewhere in the world? Thanks largely to "Dieselgate," VW is said to be planning on killing approximately 40 of its 340 different...
  13. Knocking I Think? It doesn't sound normal whatever it is

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys, I don't have a video yet but will get one tomorrow (later Today I should say lol) it's been sitting the past 22 Days. I started it a few times and backed it up and down the driveway and Kermit warm up to temp. I started it yesterday and there is a very strange sound coming from the left...
  14. Well, i think its totalled this time

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hit a curb. I finished a long day, with back to back gigs (I'm a musician) was driving to the other end of a church campus to load my gear. Was going about 40, took a left hand turn, there was a small median, poorly lit at a 3 way intersection. Front right wheel smashed. Ripped the bumper cover...

  18. I think I have a coolant leak?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I don't know if I do or not. My coolant level is low, but no warning light yet, and I can't find any leaking coolant anywhere. Could my heater core have a slow leak? My heat only works at idle with the fan speed on the climatronic on the lowest fan setting and the heat turned all the way up to...
  19. whatcha think

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Received these from ECS today. 17.7.5 and they use round ball seat bolts, 100 bucks per, or 460 delivered. I would have preferred a hyper silver finish, but the mat gun metal will hide brake dust well. They will probably get Conti DWs in the spring. I'll rest the Conti DWS06s 'til the fall. They...
