  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On my 2005 passat GLX - 4 motion with Audi V6 I replaced my right headlight yesterday so I had to remove the black plastic housing for what I assume is the air. There is what appears to be a fine screen mesh filter under there. This is directly to the rear of where the head light cap is...

    I would appreciate if anyone with the knowledge would shed some light on this issue. What are the body shell (and hardware related to body shell) differences between an 1.8T wagon, a 2.8 V6 (FWD or 4Motion) wagon, and V8 (or W8 as it is referenced) wagon, if for that matter are any? I am...

    Prices at the usual auto recyclers around NYC are not great. Would love to visit a pick-a-part and get some replacement leather seats for my car, but they all seem to be over 3 hours away from here. Can anyone recommend a junkyard with a good selection of Passats? Yes I know about car-part.com.

    hey everyone! Thanks for the great 5 years of celebrating how we love our Passats and for the inspiration to infinite possibilities that we could do to our cars to make it look better and ride better. Sadly, it was time to move on and venture out to new territory. I was thinking of a CC and I...

    This all spawned when I was looking for a cheap import car to drive daily and not mess with. I mainly look on craigs because we all know dealers overcharge like hell. Then I wandered from the Ohio CL to the LA CL and it made me sad - cars with NO rust, no damage, etc going for same prices as...
  11. B5 Garage
    I'm going to have a go at working on my wife's 2002 Passat. The driver's door is always registering as open. For a while we were able to slam it a time or two and it would register, but it's pretty consistently hosed up now. I had it in the dealer this morning for a recall, and they said they...

    Defective Master Cylinder causes brake failure, which in turn causes this. I am 6'7" (Not a small guy) and I walked away with an airbag burn. This passat saved my life %100. *Note, notice in one of the pics where the seat ended up UNDER the parking brake. Background: Brakes failed, rear ended a...
