    Is anyone else having difficulty accessing their old threads? Mine are coming up as blank web pages when I attempt to follow the link...? :cry:
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    There are a lot of threads missing, and a number of threads that are not accessible. It seems that the thread names and addresses have also been removed from all references, such as "latest started threads" and "Likes Received" Also the most recent post is not shown correctly in some threads...

    I found lots of useful info on this site and decided to share some knowledge but am having a hard time replying to the thread I want to give input on. I have posted two new comments within "The Noob Tube" thread but still cannot post any where else. This post is a test to see if Noobs must...

    I am going to have to stop reading all of the good technical posts on the forum - as my car seems to then develop the very same problems/issue addressed in the recently read post! :banghead: For example: Left hand vent light has gone out Fold Flat side mirror switch is bad (the mirrors will...

    Can anyone tell me what the best way to upload photos is? All i see is the URL. How do most people upload supplemental photos for their threads?

    Have you noticed that the B5 forum has 101,000 threads vs 7,000 for the B6? B5 is older than B6, but there are 15 times more threads in B5 than B6. How many B5 VW sold in the U.S. vs B6? Why are B5 people more active here?

    So today I was trying to diagnose a clunking coming from the passenger side front end. I took out the shock assembly, couldn't find anything obvious, and went to reassemble. As I was tightening down one of the front upper bolts (mounting bracket to body), the bolt just kept spinning. I backed...

    I'm not really new, been on here for years. Had started a post a few months back about issue w/ my B5. Haven't checked in for about a month or so, but came today to look for it and I'm not seeing it anymore. I see my threads from years ago, but not the most recent one I started. Anyone know...

    I have a 2003 Passat with 14mm x 1.5mm lug bolts. One of the threaded holes in the hub has been stripped and the bolt won't even start. It looks like the first 2 or 3 threads have been damaged badly. I'm thinking of trying to run a tap through the threads from the back side of hole. This...

    Just curious as to whether anyone has had to go beyond a simple thread repair insert to deal with stripped subframe mounting threads. I'm entering round two with a stripped rear subframe thread and would be interested in any thoughts. A Heli-Coil held-up for about 10K miles but ultimately just...

    Is there any way to repair the threads in the cam shaft for the camshaft timing pulley bolt? Not sure why it stripped so easy but i almost cried when my torque wrench turned on around and no click from the wrench. Any suggestion besides replacing the cam? 2003, 2.8 V6

    possible solution:Updated question after researching threads - SAIP and exhaust sound So building on my previous question and after researching several posts about the following issue: On cold (it's summer in Atlanta so after it's sat overnight) start, as far as I can tell, idle is fine but...
