  1. US 2018 Passat Software Update

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2018 US Passat. I can set any car features via the infotainment system. There is no "Car" button. I can only change a few things via the steering wheel controls and the gauge cluster center screen. I want to change my car so the doors don't automatically lock and that feature is not...
  2. 2003 AWM Timing Belt damper/tensioner vs mehcanical 'update'

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have to replace weeping water pump on vehicle. There is about 70k on 2nd T-Belt, so I'm going to do the whole group of timing components. I see that there is an 'updated' kit with simple spring tensioner pulley with no hydraulic damper. I'm wondering if this is an improvement. I've seen...
  3. 2005 GLX V6 Manual tranny update

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Not sure if this belongs in the Garage or here. First item is repair shops. I was taking my 2005 V6 GLX manual tranny to a garage that I have been using for over 20 years. Last time I took it there, 5 years ago, my friend said he no longer has mechanics that are versed enough with the...

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hello All, I'm the new owner of the above mentioned Passat. I'm looking to update the Navigation System and I find the $120 plus $30 Shipping for the new Maps CD, a little steep. Any options? Is the disc(CD) a 1-time use CD or would they be available 2nd-Hand? Thanks, VINNY

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2016 Passat S that I thought would come with CarPlay but apparently this trim level does not have it. Does anyone know if its possible to update the system or does it require a whole new head unit?

  7. RNS 510 update... how to?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2012 Passat SEL which I really like. Zero problems (knock on wood) so far. I haven't update the RNS 510 since I bought it and have been looking around to do so. What's the latest firmware version that I can use? Currently I am on 3690 and it can be pretty sluggish at times. The HW...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It took 1 year and 4 months to make its 10,000 miles since I bought it and the report is not one single thing has broke. I've kept up all the maintenance and service which isn't too much more expensive than any other 8 cylinder vehicle that I've owned in the past. I bought the car after everyone...

    The Showroom
    I bought some used Nex coil-overs off of a fellow forum member and I have to say I am pleased with them. They may not be the best quality coil-overs out there but they do the job and they were a fun project too say the least (First time installing coil-overs). I don't have a skid plate currently...

    Hey guys, it has been a long time, but I have a bad update.

Unfortunately, it was involved in an accident, and while we thought the repair shop could do the...
