    Always a puzzle with these cars. I'm driving along, everything was normal up to this point. Hit the left hand turn signal, and it starts blinking at about twice the normal rate - very noticeable. So, when we get to the parking lot, I jump out and confirm that the left turn signal lights (all...

  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    PLEASE HELP!! I'm having an issue with my B5.5 2003 Passat GLX with the 2.8 V6 with 148,000 miles (I'm the original owner). The factory alternator died and left me stranded. After a tow and a lot of struggling, I replaced it with a NEW Valeo 120 amp alternator (identical to the OEM version that...

    Hey guys, So last week I was using my scan gauge 2 on a ford explorer (PULLING CODES) and decided to hook it up to my passat, and so I did. I ran out to work that night (120 miles one way), and decided to let the car idle while I was waiting for the truck to move out of the scale so I could...

    2002 B5.5 2.8 V6. Original plugs were due at 47K. As is almost always the case (even when it says they're in stock - that's worth a whole new thread by itself), Advance Auto didn't have the plugs I needed Saturday, so I went with the BKR6EQUP, which they did have. 4 tips are better than 2...

    I am all asleep enjoying my day off when all of the sudden this phone call wakes me up. "Dude I heard some noise after driving over a bump and I think my car is leaking something." First thing I say: " park on the next closest parking lot and shut the car off" I get there 30 minutes later and...

    I just wanted to get the groups insight here. I have a 99 1.8t Passat wagon that has 105K on the car, but the engine was rebuilt about 20K ago by the VW mechanic that sold the car to me. (he lives a fair bit from me) It has received full synthetic oil changes every 5K; and most recently with 5w...

    :wrench: So I talked to my local VW service manager, I'd recalling see that auto wipers were partially discontinued in 2013 and fully discontinued in 2014; as soon as I saw this I knew something was up. My service rep said the VW auto windshield wipers for the Passat don't work very well from...

    I seem to have a coolant leak, but there is no sign of the coolant leaking in the garage/floor, other than having to fill up the reservoir tank twice a month. I have checked the reservoir tank the last time I was under the hood, by feeling for any wetness and there was none. I know there are...

    I know this has been discussed, but wanted to remind all the noobs a nice shortcut to have new looking headlights. If you're headlights are cloudy, yellowed, scratched, foggy, etc... just buy a $3 tube of natural toothpaste with whitening, put a little on the headlight and scrub with a rag...

    Hi, I'm waiting to be allowed to post on the main forum but I really urgently need some help with my 1999 Passat Estate. It's an automatic 20v 1.8 and I have only had it for three days. I got it off a guy I have known for years who had the car from brand new and he has assured me that the...
