  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As I mentioned earlier this week, my youngest son crashed into the back of a bus with the old Passat. He's fine, nobody injured at all. Just found out this morning that the insurance company declared the Passat a total loss. I don't have the value of settlement as yet. The Canadian Black...

    I've been with USAA for years and always had a good experience with them. But now, they're going to be losing a customer. In short, my Passat was damaged during transport when I moved to Arizona from Oregon. When I got the car back, it had a giant dent in the rear hatch and the rear bumper...

    So I get the grey vs blue envelope icon indicating new/no new posts. What is the red one for? At first I thought it was stickies, but that wasn't it, then I thought polls...but that didn't make sense. Someone drop some knowledge on me, please!

    I was driving to the store last week and I noticed a lot of resistance driving up the hill I live on, so pulled over to find my front left caliper siezed. Pried it open, drove back home without using pedal. I decided to replace the pads, rotors and calipers since it's been a while anyway ( even...

    Hi peeps, Just bought a used, 2000 Passat GLS. Good looking car, with a lot of miles, but it runs great. I'm on here to see about mods, photos for ideas, and help in locating some parts. Thanks, and I look forward to chatting. Ted

    I know it sure was asked before but after 1 hr of research I could not find the code for my B5 1998 that I bought yesterday and I need to order a part. I could not find any sticker on the trunk. The sticker in the drivers door reads: and I found this sticker under the hood: Any body help me...

    Hello all, I'm a new passat (2002 GLS 1.8T B5.5) owner and forum member, and I first just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts here.

    Someone backed into my car, so now is as good a time as any to replace the headlights. I used to have a great set of I think DEPO ones on my 97 VR6, but now all sites are flooded with these cheap headlight assemblies that are of poor quality, cheap plastic in place of metal and apparently most...

    I'll be doing an engine swap in the 2001 B5.5 sedan I just picked up (with a blown engine). As a result, the torque converter will be off the trans. I figured it makes sense to drain as much fluid out of the TC as possible while it's removed. I'll also be dropping the trans pan and changing...

    So, I dropped the beast off at the shop today to get a ton of new parts installed. I provided all the parts, so I'm just dealing with labor here. The ridiculous indy I take it to charges $95 an hour. I'm taking bets on what the total labor will be for the following... First person to guess...
