  1. And then there were leaks!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've looked and looked, behind the engine, on top of my still oil-soaked transmission, all around the oil cooler, under the expansion tank, at the heater hoses in the plenum chamber, and can find no sign of leaks. I finally bit the bullet and ordered a GiraffeCam 4.0, I'll have it Monday...

  4. Where were you my B5-owning years? The One True Ratchet

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On a recent trip to the Toy Store for Men, Harbor Freight, I was on a quest to obtain a nice 3/8" ratchet, as my new chariot, a '17 CR-V, uses 10mm bolts for nearly everything, and a 1/2" drive is overkill for that, if I even had a 1/2" 10mm, which I don't. Like many DIYers my only 3/8"...
  5. My hopes were up, but.............

    USA - Central
    It's not looking good. I'm not all that surprised, so it could be worse. I went to an all-VW show in Milwaukee on June 4th and actually took 2nd Place in the class of stock B5/MK IV, and that's very likely the only trophy I'll ever get, and that's cool. What got my hopes, up, however, was a tag...
  6. Why were my headlight brakets modified?????

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Long story short. 04 Passat V6 GLX I removed both entire headlight assemblies to see if I could fix something that was broken but they need to be replaced. The lights are Hella's with the tiny bulb in the high beam area. Low beam is a projector, the high beam is a plain halogen bulb and it's...
  7. We're Gone!

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    After 33 years of owning VWs, we thought we'd look at trading our 2013 Passat on a very nice used Audi Q5 the dealer had on the lot. The salesman was very helpful and we were on the verge of making a deal when the Sales Manager stepped in and advised he really didn't want our Passat as they...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After 9 years with the silver bullet wagon, at now 178kmi, maintenance was starting to get to me and my wife and I went to look for a replacement. The interesting conclusion was that my wife commented as to why have a car payment when everything we test drove, particularly smaller BMW cars and...

    Earlier today I was driving through my hometown of Norwalk, CT, and I witnessed what I thought was probably some of the worst driving I have ever seen anywhere.

    What's up everybody? Just bought an '04 Passat GLS 1.8t 5-speed yesterday. It's got ~89k miles and the dealer is replacing the timing belt, water pump, thermostat, head valve gasket, and rollers. In the past I've owned a '94 GMC Jimmy, a '97 Saturn SL2, and a '96 Saturn SL; so this is a big...
