Hi guys, a VW noob here, from Europe, in my early 40s. Just bought my first non-Japanese car - an old 1996 b5 Passat, 1.8T, manual, sedan. Got it for only like 400 bucks and almost everything works fine, except for:

# the power locks - the remote unlocks only the driver's door and trunk
# the fuel release switch doesn't work, so I have to manually open the fuel door from the trunk

Otherwise, absolutely no rust anywhere, the AC is powerful and cools the car immediately, I just love the smooth ride, the sense of security, the comfy seats. It is a bit big for my taste (an ex- Civic guy here), but I'm slowly getting used to the lack of rear visibility. Happy to join the crowd and hope you can help me with my problems.
