    I am and did some investigating and found some advise from "Mister T" that made sense and was an eye opener in terms of what can happen to some people that re-build their own units. I will be one of those, so I visited "G-POP SHOP" website and since he seems to run a very reputable shop...

    I need some time before I can take the car out of service to work on the Turbo Unit on my 2003 B5.5 Passat 1.8 Started to leak oil into the plastic tubes to the inter-cooler. It would allow me to use the car until I can find a "window" to take the Turbo Unit itself and see if I can rebuild it...

    My 2003 B5.5 Passat started to leave heavily into the pipes to the inter-cooler and I think better take it apart and rebuild if it possible. No noise, no smoke, but I think that these would come soon. Anyone that could point to articles in this forum with the pertinent information? I searched...

    What is the fuse number for the B6 manual (not climatronic) AC unit? AC light comes on when button is pressed and compressor kicks in, but heated seat and fan blower are dead.

    I removed the trim piece and the 4 t-20 screws, but the unit will not come out. The bottom of the unit is loose, but the top is caught on something. Any hidden screws that I missed ? Thanks.

    Pulled from a 2003 B5.5 with Monsoon amp below the hat deck. I know that some HU say Monsoon on the cassette door and some do not (mine does not) - that may be the difference between the Premium 5 vs 6. Can the Premium 6 HU, pulled from a car with a Monsoon amp, work in a car with no Monsoon...

    Ok, My battery Died. Put a new one in and my head unit/nave will not come back on. Stealership says unit died due to bad battery install. Now says it will cost me 3200.00 to replace. Just checking to see if this is true with these units, and can I just install an aftermarket unit instead.

    Any thing new out there for a nice "factory plus" head unit replacement? My stock lcd screen is completely faded. All I can see is the blue back light. It's not a huge deal since I use my phone via bluetooth for pandora but still just want to see if there are any new options out there since I...

    Hello out there. Been reading the forums and tech tips for a few days, and figured I'm gonna have to post and ask for advice. Here's the situation. Bought a 2004 v6 with climatronic used, and it was having the known run warm problem. Aux fan would not come on for any reason. I originally...

    Hi, My Passat is an early B7 (European) with the 2nd generation climatronic control unit and I would like to upgrade this to the 3rd generation unit. My impression is that this is a direct swap? I have used ETKA to narrow down the list of possible revisions I may have to: 5K0 907 044 GM or 5K0...

    I know there are a lot of purists on this site that would not let anything like this near their Passats, but when I got a great deal on my Passat, I was too excited about the manual transmission and turbo to realize some of the finer driving aspects didn't come with the car. So I went ahead a...

    Hi - I searched this forum, but couldn't find anything about this. - What does it mean? - How can I fix it? - Is this a common issue that will just get worse? I'd like to keep the stock CD changer, but am not averse to putting is something new. Thanks. :thumbup:

    I've tried to add aftermarket bluetooth to my daughter's '06 Passat 3.6 and ran into a problem. I have the Dension unit for an AUX input, tried the CD harness in the glove box to connect to and the sound was horrible, static, clicking etc. They sent me the harness to try direct into the back...

    I have an odd problem. My 510 will play CD's, DVD's but in the MEDIA screen the only header normally is lit up is the MDI box. I DO NOT even have the MDI cable for that. I want to add more waypoints via a SD card, only a 665kb file. I have tried ten different SD cards from 500 mb to 8 GB. Tried...

    Other than the four screws holding the unit to the center console frame, is there anything else holding the Climatronic control unit in the console? I have removed the trim piece and the four screws, but the unit seems really stuck in there. I need to remove the unit in order to remove a...
