  1. *sigh* Strut question with one key detail (yes I searched)...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, first-off yes I have searched. My 2003 Wagon has 120,000 miles on it and the struts need to be replaced. I've pretty much settled on Bilstein's for the struts so that's taken care of. But unfortunately in my search results most of the threads are quite old. In one of those old results...
  2. 17" BBS 8.5 wide 235/45... Yes or No?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    As the thread says i have a 2001.5 sedan. Will it rub on a control arm or do i need spacers? I currently have 245/45/17/8 and its close enough that i cant fit my pinky, so i'm wondering if it's going to be a super close fit? and then, will i need my fenders pulled? :hmmm:

  5. Finally after 4 years... I finally scored. Yes! Efin' A! Holy Crap!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been on the prowl for 4 years. Came close to trapping a few, but was ultimately denied in the end each time, almost to the point of loosing faith in my quest. But today I'm here to tell you I finally captured the beast. And yes it really does exist. Well, I gotta go. I'll let the avid...
  6. Yes, plastic hubcaps.......

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I am the oddball purist here. I have a 2005 Base GL, Urban Gray. Only options are leather and tiptronic. It has 15" factory hubcaps with 14 spokes. I don't even know if hubcaps have different style names like wheels do, but the part # is 3B0601147HRYQ. When I bought the car last October, I noted...
  7. Oil leaks. Yes, more than one.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 1.8 AWM. 134,279 miles. Persistent oil leaks. One of the more annoying ones is from around the flange of the oil return line, turbo end. Joy. Replaced gasket. Tightened bolts. Check it on the regular. Others... Well, my first one was easy - the dipstick tube was busted. Replaced. No...

    So I have a 2001 V6 4motion wagon, currently at the shop. I had it towed there because it was leaning to the left. (Don't ask what happened, I honestly have no idea...one day it was fine and the next day I went outside to start the car and it was sitting on the fender. I was not the last...
  12. B7 Painted Rocker Panels - Yes? No?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I "painted" the rockers panels of my Passat in photoshop - tried to imitate the GLI - not bad (I think)! * Lowered with H&R springs (Stock strut/shocks) - rides great.

  14. P0171 - yes; P0174 - no. Or, is Foam Good?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Here is the dilemma: both codes are normally caused by a vacuum leak. If there is a vacuum leak, then both codes should show up, right? I only get P0171. Here is background: wife’s 2002 Passat 4Motion, 2.8L V6, 175K on the clock. Purchased new. I do all my own maintenance. In October 2008...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2001 b5 v6 Passat. I noticed I was a little low on power steering fluid and the cap said mineral oil only. So I hopped on here and I saw that most said to use the CFH 7.1 but do not mix with the 11s or 202, cool 7.1 is mineral oil based power steering fluid. So I went down to NAPA and paid $20...
