    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Searched, found nothing. It's the light that is only supposed to come on when you slide the visor mirror's cover to the left.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well I'm pretty sure the two previous owners of my 02 Passat were women because the drivers side vanity light is broken/worn out. ;) Since it's not the bulb I guess it's the switch? Is there any way to get to it? Could it be something else? I never use it but I ordered a Zenon bulb kit and...
