    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was planning to change my transmission oil today and got the fill plug off easy, but when it came to the drain plug it was all rusted up and stripped from only a couple of attempts.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Was looking at getting the triple gauge panel (VW Mk4 Triple Gauge Panel (Black) : USRT, Usually Sideways Rally Team) for awhile but I don't want to use VDO gauges. It says VDO gauges are the only ones stubby enough to not interfere with anything behind the dash... is that true?
  8. Recommended triple square bit drivers?

    B5 Garage

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For any of you out there that are as stupid as me and think you can get by without a triple square when it's called for. This is one of the screws the holds the rear lock module to the door. One bolt came out with a 6mm allen, but this one didn't. Needless to say, I had to dremel slots in...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok so I bought this for the gauges I ordered (glowshift boost, oil temp, oil pressure). In their instructions it shows the mounting bracket for the gauges to be straight with the panel.
