Hello fam, I have a B5.5, AT, 4mo. The shift lever won't go into TIP. It has never been able to go to Tiptronic since I bought the car. Any help with how I could resolve the problem?
Thanks in advance

You need to remove the shift lever and then the front section of the console.
This should help, but no pics: Floppy Tiptronic Shifter Repair - PassatB5

Even though it claims you need to remove the whole center console, I have just removed the front. 2 bolts are at the sides, on the bottom where it meets the seats. Then 2 small screws (torx) at the front, under the dash holding a 3x3" part at the front. I think there are more under the ashtry. Then lift the back just enough to clear the rear cover and slide the front part back until the 2 center prongs that go under the climate control are clear.
