    Hi all you VeeDubbers! Thank you for having me. It's great to be back in the seat of a fine German automobile. The last VW I had was in Augsburg, Germany while serving in the U.S. Army there. It was a fine little '57 Bug that took me all over most of Western Europe in 1966-68.:salute: Glad...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is just thanks to all in this forum. I acquired this Passat wagon that was oozing oil, had a nasty knock and had no boost and due to the input and motivation provided here, I now have a Passat that is clean and reliable. I feel that the contributors to this result need praise, however...

    My RR door wouldn't lock/unlock with remote, and the woofer was not working. I opened the rubber accordion between the B pillar and the door and found a broken wire plus corroded terminals on the plugs. Soldered in a few more inches of wire and sprayed with contact cleaner. Back in business! You...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    of pulling the cockpit vs disassembling the instrument panel? Or is there only good access to the heater core that way?

  9. Saying Goodbye is harder than you think

    B5 Garage
    1998 sedan 1.8T 5spd manual. I love this car. I've loved it since I bought it gently used 10 years ago. I've loved getting to know the B5 - AND you the B5 family. What do you think is a fair price to sell my baby? It has some minor interior/exterior blemishes and the ABS module needs to be...

  11. You must replace rotors every brake pad change?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    My 2015 is already hitting 50k miles and needs some new pads. So I called two shops today and both of them told me they had to change the rotors out when the brake pads are changed. Something about not being able to turn them and something else about a wire. Both shops quoted me around 350.00...

  15. Do you keep the belly pan on your car? (under car shield) (engine protection shield)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Do you have a belly pan for your car? If you have a belly pan, do you keep it on? Sometimes after changing the oil I question whether I should replace the belly pan or leave it off.
  16. Would you buy a 2 year old car sitting in show room?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Looking at maybe selling our minivan for a 2015 Passat V6 SEL. Supposedly brand new in a dealer showroom. So I have a few questions: 1) How much should I pay for it? 2) What should I look for in terms of issues for a car sitting in a showroom or lot for 2 years? 3) Would you do it? 4) Should I...

  19. How do you undo window from clips for changing lock module

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My daughters 06 Passat has a bad lock module on the front passenger door I am trying to replace. I took off the trim and removed the 2 plugs where I could see the 2 clips that hold the glass in place but i am unsure how to loosen them. It is not the 10mm bolt that I have encountered doing this...
