  4. 2005 wagon door wont open from outside, child safety lock set. What to do?

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2005 tdi wagon. Like many people, my door handle stopped opening from the outside. I read online that the mechanism gets caught and by slamming the door and/or fiddling with the child safety lock, you can get the piece to pop back into place without taking the door apart. I tried this...
  5. My rear door won't open, and multiple doors take multiple pulls to open ...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    .... and I don't care!! :) I dread the Passat doors, and only a regulator or regulator clip breaking would force me back in. Properly dealing with the water seal is the biggest bitch. I use that 3M strip caulk, which works great, but is horrible to manage. It's such weird behavior, it used...

    I just recently ran into the problem where I turn ON the heater and it heats up but then you cannot turn the heat off. The temperature knob has not effect, it stays hot. The fan control works fine, the A/C works fine. I have to either turn the fan all the way OFF or turn the system OFF. If I...

  14. Horn and turn signals wont go off after wiper switch replacement

    B5 Garage
    My wife broke the wiper switch off at the stalk on our 2003 Passat 1.8t. Evidently she was very angry that it was raining. So I went and got a new switch from the junkyard (since its the "multi function" switch with the switch on the side its $250 new or $10 from the junk yard), got the airbag...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Heh-Lur! I own a 03 Passat wagon and my rear hatch/trunk wont open from the inside when I hit the trunk switch on the door. I always have to turn off my car and open the back manually with my key which is annoying as heck especially after I've driven my car and I have to immediately remove...

  17. Passat 3B rear left door won't open

    B5 Garage
    Hello everyone, I've joined here to get some info. The rear left door on my 1999 Passat variant won't unlock, there's no way to open it. It once got locked, and never unlocked, just so. I've tried some tricks, but none worked. I wish I could open it with any kind of trick because when you...
  18. Car turns once, thumps(?), won't start

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I say thump for lack of a better word. It shakes the car but only once, just like a misfire, but one time. I've spent most of the past two weeks trying to figure this out, but with no luck. I've searched these forums as well as other VW forums with to avail as well. I got the codes pulled (I do...
  19. Rear CD Changer won't come out

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2003 Passat GLX Wagon with a rear cd changer -- owned for about a week when I discovered it has a cd changer in the back above the wheel well. It didn't have a changer cartridge which I found online, loaded it up, but it doesn't work. I think there is no power to the changer unit so I...
  20. Car won't rev correctly

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, once again here with my noob self. I have a 1999 passat 1.8t that loves to give me a headache. I'll give the car gas and it'll rev up to like 1.5k and then drop back down to like 500. If I repeatedly press the gas, it'll occasionally go past the 1.5k. The higher I rev, the lower it...
