    I've searched the forum but haven't been able to find a write-up for a back-up camera install on a B5 sedan. Does anyone know if one's been done yet? Thanks!

    Hello, so thanks to John (DerhsLacidar) I now know what is wrong with my car. We found a few vacuum lines that were cracked and on vagcom, my secondary air system failed, but the pump works perfectly fine. I am pretty sure I want him to replace the vacuum lines, but I may do it myself. I just...

    Well looks like it is my turn to change out the oil pump in my 2001 B5 with 1.8T (AUG). I know there was a couple really good write ups on here that showed the easiest way to do it but of course now I can't find them. Can someone point me to them. Appreciate it.

    Was reading the V6 tensioner/belt replacement write up and the pictures seem to be missing. Just small placeholder squares for the pictures and the link at the bottom is empty. Can someone else check to see if it's just me...

    Hi all, I recently had to clean the oil pickup again. I think I know the root of the problem this time and have fixed it again hopefully for good. I took photos of the work I did this time and will do a comprehensive write up on it as soon as I get back from vacation. If I feel industrious I...

    I have an 03 B5 V6 that needs an oil pump change. My mechanic wants $800 for labor alone. Is this something that is a relatively easy DIY? I have basic mechanic skills. Does anyone have a write up for this? Thanks

    Hey all, So I've seen a few :b5:'s with different variations of lower grill fog lights, and I'm really itching to install some S6 lights on my B5. There are LED setups on either ECSTuning or TMTuning so I know where to get them, but before I get them I was wondering if anyone had a 'how-to'...

    I'm finally putting on my PSS9's, which have been sitting around all summer. I found this good write up on AudiWorld, so I'm stealing it and posting it here. The front can be ignored, as it is basically the same as our Passat's, and HermanH has a great write up that I followed when I did my...

    Ok...this is kinda cheesy but I was bored. And while I know this isn't the most technical of subjects, I thought it could be a handy remedy to what I presume is not an unique personal situation. The metal "rings" of our key fobs are made of crappy metal and frequently break off. In fact...
