  1. Front Door Latch - Removal while Door Closed and Locked...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ...never heard/read of the door lock/latch mechanism failing (locked) quite like this. Think it's a Rockwell design. It's the '99 Passat. Regardless of door lock rod position, the passenger's front door won't open, from the inside or outside. Interior panel is off and about to loosen those...
  2. Slight Vibration Noise While Driving

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have been having this problem with my 2002 Passat 1.8T. It has 106k miles on it and has not had any major issues with the engine or transmission. I have been having this strange vibration noise that will only last a second or so around when my car shifts. It will happen in any gear. For...

  8. Locking while "warming up"

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2013 Passat, my old buick I could start and let it warm up because the key and locking fob were separate pieces. The Passat has that idiotic "switchblade key/fob" (only thing I hate about the car). Is there a way I am missing to start it and get the heater going and lock it while it is...

  10. B5, RPM blips while braking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    '00 Passat 4Mo wagon, 2.8L, ATQ, 134 kmi During routine braking, I notice when the tach drops to ~900 RPM it momentarily bumps up to 1000, then it smoothly drops to ~630 and quickly bumps up to 680, where it remains. The warm idle speed is 680, which is within spec for the 4Mo. I don't feel...

  12. Car jerks while decelerating

    B5 Garage
    Alright so my 02 glx 2.0 5 speed has around 134 on it. I replaced the water pump along with the timing belt and serpentine belt not too long ago. I've had a problem that only occurs every now and then. When I accelerate it jerks forwards and when I let my foot off the peddle it jerks hard. I...
  13. Worst thing you've ever hit while driving?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...
  14. 2015 Passat ac stops blowing air while on long road trip

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hello everybody, this is my first post so I hope I have this in the right place. We have a 2015 Passat Wolfsburg edition and we live in Las Vegas, so crazy hot summer temps. Last summer, the ac started blowing warmer and it would take a while for the ac to start cooling. I took it to an ac shop...
  15. Scraping sounds from brakes while driving

    B5 Garage
    Got a very neglected Passat, rusting outside with no driving for three or more years... I knew sooner or later I will need to do brakes, because rotors looked overgrown with rust and I had to un-stuck after finally starting the car first time. I was hoping the pads will make rotors more shinny...
  16. Uh oh! Help needed while doing vcgs

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, I accidentally broke the guide for my cam chain tensioner for the passenger side whilst trying to access one of the seals on the backside… Is there any way to get that plastic guide as a separate piece, or do I have to get a whole new tensioner? I sure hope I don't have to get a whole new...

  18. Big Intermittent Voltage Drain While Off

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 Passat GLS V6. 120k miles. The car seems to use battery while sitting. Typically I come back to it and it's at about 3-4 V between battery posts. I heard something sound like it was kicking on when I hooked it to a trickle charger. Came from somewhere near the brake proportioning valve...
  19. Front End Vibration/Shudder While Under Load - Axle?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello! I have a 2007 Passat Wagon (2.0T, A/T). When we bought it, it had a bad front right wheel bearing, and there was this slight vibration/wiggle/shudder in the front end. I thought maybe the wheel bearing was that bad and was causing it. Replaced the bearing, noise is gone, shudder still...
  20. Looks like my MAF is shot. May I just disconnect it? (for a while)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yo there. Yesterday I was getting back from the grocery when my IDLE became pretty rough. The engine didn't stall but it was amazing how nuts the RPM gauge on the cluster performed. I pulled over for a moment and when I tried to get back to the street the car was completely out for power. As...
