I am trying to figure out if I have a Monsoon sound system in my car but I dont know if it has one or not. Is there an easy way to tell :???:

Look at the radio. It will have a Monsoon symbol on it. If youhave a sedan the Monsoon amp will be under the rear deck, if it's a variant it will be in the changer area on the driver's side in the rear. Last, if it's a Monsoon system the display will say "Monsoon" in the display when you turn the car on.

As Paul said... if you look at the slot where you insert the cassette, it says Monsoon on the cassette door. It also lights up Monsoon on the display every time you turn on the stereo.

I'm guessing you don't have a Monsoon... otherwise you'd have noticed these things.

I believe only the newer Passats have the Monsoon logo on the cassette door. My 2003 does not, but 2003.5 seem to all have it. 2003.5 also do not have lights in the air vents like the 2003 do.

They all come with the booklet.
I just bought my Passat about a month ago, and it came with 3 stereo booklets. One for the double DIN stereo that I have, one for the double DIN Monsoon that I don't have, and one more for the single DIN unit that I also don't have...
