  1. The nozzle on the top of the coolant tank broke off, is it safe to drive?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The nozzle on top of the coolant tank broke off as I was moving the tank out of the way to disconnect some sensors. Attached is a stock picture of the tank with the area that broke circled in red. There's about a 1/4in piece left that's reinforced with plastic bars on the top and bottom and that...
  2. top of windshield trim?

    B5 Garage
    Excuse this Passat newbie question! I've recently taken over a Passat and the previous owner has had many missing parts including trim. I've searched the parts catalog/dealer-sites, and have tried to find a close-up of a passat on the webs but to no avail... Is there a molding/trim piece that...

  7. Need to top off ATF for my 2001 Passat V6 30V

    B5 Garage
    I made a mess when I tried to replace the electric auxiliary cooling fan behind the radiator on the passenger side.

  8. Broke off top of coolant temp sensor.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 passat V6 260,000 miles. Recently my car has been refusing to start when cold, the only way to get it going is a lot of cranking and starting fluid. My first thought was coolant temp sensor, it was only a few bucks so I picked one up. Attempted to replace it but the retention clip...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've posted on this before, and I have stated that changing out the clutch master cylinder is definitely in the top 5 list of most undesirable jobs to do on the Passat. Well today, I've come to another conclusion and a new top 5 worst addition. Changing out the rear wheel bearing hub with a non...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After a top end rebuild on a 1.8t 2003, as I was filling up the car with water, I got a steady stream leak, leaks when off and when running at same rate. The leak looks to be coming from behind the power steering pump and leaking down the oil pan. I cannot see the leak looking down under or...
