    Ladies and gentlemen, here's the deal. I have a working VDS-PRO setup here, so I can do low-level coding work on B5 / B5.5 CCMs. Things like "window operation via remote", or (for the B5.5 wagons), "tailgate 'unlocked' with all doors unlocked." ***If you have any other coding changes that...

    Hello dear forum members, anybody has experience with connecting an AUX audio (3,5 Jack) to RCD300 audio system via the CD Changer Port? (perhaps other connecting solution?) I want to play the music from my phone via the RCD300 unit. I have seen on internet they sell several types of adapters...

    My Passat b7 did not come with LED headlight and xenon (optional packages), and now I want to install/convertion DIY DRL LED's inside the headlights. The LEDs B7 without LED and factory xenon have a separate light for DRL, near the fog lights, as in the photo...

    ok so my cable arrived and ive set up and run the modules, mostly the Air bags as i keep getting a light pop up on start up and then it goes away. So the codes pulled 01221 crash sensor side airbag - drivers side (g179) 28-00 short to plus as well as 01217 21-10 but no description (vcds-lite)...

    I'm trying to buy a transmission but for my 99 auto B5 1.8t but apparently there are different types of autos for this year so I was wondering how I can find a tranny for my specific car. I don't have the car with me but I do have the vin. Anyway to look it up? I've checked google but no solid...

    I'm replacing my left (driver) engine mount right now. I'm thinking about the engine lift method instead of the subframe drop. Since right now the VW dealer is closed until Monday and I do not have new subframe bolts lying around, and I'm not too excited about a subframe drop in general if...

    I booked my 2005 Passat 1.8t in at a local shop that specializes in VW/AUDI. I asked him if he can completely remove the SAIP from the ECU. He quoted me at $350-650 off the top of his head. I was wondering if anyone knows how much work REALLY goes into this. I know they'll have to do some...

    Hey guys, like many others I was battling the p2181 code. I changed my CTS and thermostat in the same week, about two weeks ago. CEL eventually kicked itself off and everything was great until this past Saturday I noticed a tiny drip leak of coolant. The leak has gotten quicker by the day and...

    For the 2003 V6 Passat, there are two cats (left and right). Each cat has a pre-cat O2 sensor and a post-cat O2 sensor. Thats 4 sensors, total. I remember reading that some of these sensors cannot be fixed by using the O2 Spacers because some of the sensors are used by the ECU to determine...

    Hi, I recently got VCDS and enabled my car to open/close windows via remote. I have two remotes (FOB's) and one opens and closes all widows while the other one opens/closes only drivers window. I put in both FOB's and went over the procedure and it all looks the same. I checked/uncecked all...

    My father wanted me to post this for him. He would really like to be able to stream his music off his iPhone to his B6's stereo via Bluetooth. He already got the VW Bluetooth accessory installed, but it seems his stereo may not support the music streaming like the newer CC he got as a loaner...

    i was thinkin of venting VC to IM solely via pcv valve line therefore removing pcv valve line from crankcase and run that line solely to PRV. ive already fabbed normal aeb pcv just with bigger ID hose but thought this might be a good way to releive any extra pressure but wondering if this would...

    I could've sworn I saw references a while back to an option via Vag Com to have the instrument cluster needles (speedometer, tach, fuel and coolant temp) stay lit even when all other lights are off. Does anyone know about this? I can't find anything via search.

    I'm looking at buying a chipped ecu for my 1.8t. It's from a 99 AEB and mine is the same. Only thing is it's for a tip and I have a stick. Can this be changed? I picked up a vag-com, but it didn't come with any instructions. I hope someone here knows how to change it. I searched already...

    I drive a 99 passat (4-cylinder) and am near my wits end on this problem. Actually planning to sell it... this is my last ditch effort. (1) the smell is very similar to the general engine smell. To me, it seems much more like exhaust than like fuel or burning oil. The car is also not losing...

    Just wanted to share some info. I installed a Reflex today from AutoWindow. http://members.shaw.ca/autowindow/products.html#SEC5 Very time consuming but VERY easy if you can follow instructions. The job consisted of removing both door panels completly, removing lower dash driver side, pulling...
