  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Curious to know if anyone has done the one touch rear window up/down mod on the B5? My guess is only the veterans will know about this one. I found a couple of spare master window controllers laying around and thought I'd give it a try. To the best of my knowledge this was only done on the B5.5.

    Does anyone know if there is touch up paint available for 2017 Passat R - Line rims? Closest match? I've contacted VW and numerous parts stores and they say they do not have touch up paint for this particular cars wheels. They have all directed me to wheel repair shops and all the quotes I've...

    Has anyone recently bought/used a touch up paint that actually matches our color? Did some searching and saw that apparently the OEM VW touch up paint doesn't come close to matching. Saw a post on the forums that said paintscratch.com matched perfectly, but that was from 2013. Sent from my...

    Hi Everyone, So today i went to pick up my driver side window on my 2012 Passat SE by just pulling the button once like i normally do and for some reason it didn't go all the way up i had to keep holding it in order for the window to close.

    Bought the car used and noticed the driver window control switch would only roll right rear passenger window down and not up, so I purchased a new master control switch unit and installed it easily enough, which fixed the issue and gave me full one touch usage for all four Windows from the...

    I'm about to upgrade my 2005.5 1.8t AWM Passat with a Kenwood DDX271 Double Din Touch Screen Receiver. Can anyone comment on how these or any stereos with a touch screen react in large temperature ranges. In Calgary we get -28 C to +33 C. I have an underground parking stall at my condo so that...

    PW Swamis, Please shed some light...I know there's supposedly tons of places online to get these types of things but sometimes when you want it you just don't want to wait for snail mail or UPS or the like. Long story short...I just bought a 2005 GLS Wagon with the Stonehenge Gray color and...

    I know I am not alone in finding out the dealer touch up paint does not come close to matching the actual car color. Unfortunately, I wish I would have read that prior to applying it. Touch up paint I have bought from dealers for other cars was always a dead match so I never thought to...

    I have a local mechanic who has earned my loyalty over the years but he's no VW specialist and hasn't yet worked on this new-to-me '08 Passat. Today I had him swap out the summer wheels for snows and he said the car needs new rear brake pads. Will I be asking for trouble if I have him do the...

    No really though, my car just breaks when I look at it. Alright, I was hand tightening/checking my subframe bolts and one of them sheared right off, like the whole head just came off inside the bit. I wasn't using an impact wrench or a breaker bar or anything and I'm not that strong so I don't...
