  3. My 1st Passat and 1st/2nd post thread

    New Member Introductions
    Another Passat owner from the Pacific NW. 2012 TDI SEL Premium, Opera Red Rather than a luxury rocket (my usual) or a hybrid economy car (Ioniq?), I got a diesel Passat. Seemed like the perfect mix of what I want. Comfort, size, economy and well equipped. My 1st VW, my 1st diesel.
  4. URGENT (NEED HELP!) - I can't even get into my other thread that I just created

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  5. A new LED/HID thread - B6 2010 Passat - LED too fat

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I've read a bunch of threads about HID upgrades. None helped much though because they were written back when the kits were only HID (no LED info) in the $300 range. One thread that might have helped has some crazy icon in the place of pictures saying I had to join photobucket at a cost of $400 a...
  6. Probably not the place to post this, but my thread just went POOF!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anyone experienced their thread disappearing? My overheating thread is completely gone???
  7. Can't get snub mount bracket bolts to thread

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is driving me crazy. I've spent the last 3 hours cursing/trying to unsuccessfully thread on the three snub mount bracket bolts to the radiator carrier. Are they captive nuts in the carrier because it seems like whatever the bolts thread to inside have come loose? I may have managed to...

  9. I want a 3 page thread, nothing less !!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    FIRST CONCEPT: I was wondering the other day, the blue cap on the windshield washer tank is so hard to open & it gets in the way when you pour new stuff into the tank. So I figure you could refill it by wiring the pump to work in reverse and suck in new fluid from the sprayer nozzles on the...

    I have a b5 Audi a4 1.8tq with icm delete and FSI coil conversion kit from Integrated Engineering. One coil adapter have started to fail (bad connection, needs to be wiggled every now and then), so I want to fit the 4 point connectors to my 3 wire aeb harness. Which brings me to this thread...

    B5 Garage
    Hi folks, Replaced my coolant tank and motor mounts this weekend on my '02 B5 V6 GLX. Accidentally un-clipped the little power wire to the starter and had to reconnect a couple times to get started but it runs fine now. However: Started the engine, no ac/heat coming out of vents. Coolant level...
  15. and another ABS thread

    B5 Garage
    I think I know what is going on here, but wanted to double check here with the experts... My 01 A4 B5 started putting on the ABS light and flashing the brake light whenever it is driven. Brakes work fine, brake fluid level is good. When I pull the codes I get something like: 18014 ABS...
  16. Yet another B5.5 Auto/5M Trans Swap Thread

    New Member Introductions
    I scoured the forums as best as the slightly clunky search function here would allow, and didn't really find an answer. It seems most people have an auto Passat and scrounge the 5m parts from here and there, and need to know what they actually need. The responses range from "For God's sake...

    Picked up a 2008 Passat 2.0t fsi with 166k miles. It has been neglected for some time and I am trying to get it roadworthy again. Here's what I've done so far: 1) Replaced the HPFP and cam follower. The cam follower in the car was completely worn though and spring was floating in the cam...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everybody. I wanted to take the opportunity to share a project that I have been dreaming of working on ever since I had my first Passat back in high school….a big turbo 4motion B5.5. But first, a little about myself… I grew up in NJ, went to school in PA for mechanical engineering, and...
