    Excuse this Passat newbie question! I've recently taken over a Passat and the previous owner has had many missing parts including trim.

  5. Windshield replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've looked through some older posts and it seems the best bet is to get the OEM glass at the dealership and then take it to the glass installer of your choice, or pay less for the same mobile service the dealer uses to install. Am I still looking at around $300-400 for this? I'd be...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did a search, but didn't find anything related to my problem so here goes: the washers work fine EXCEPT when the outside temp is below 10 or 15 degrees. I can hear the pump, the bottle is full, but nothing comes out. Anyone else experience this? How do I fix it? Thanks for the help.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    new to the car but i'm assuming that pulling the windshield wiper stick should activate the pump but it does not. the pump does work if I connect 12v directly to it with a test lead. the wipers do work but they do not come on when i pull the stick, only when I turn them on for full time do...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm not sure if this is a thing, but.. I'm in need of a new windshield after mine cracked a while back (I don't want to specify how far back so as to avoid the grief I'm sure to get), and I have become aware of the optional Rain Sensor located in the windshield.
