The B5 manual uses linkages rods, not cables. Since your's is a custom setup, it will not work unless you sit in the trunk. I thought you had an automatic? For that, it's a cable, but you would need to make a much longer one for your car. I might still have an automatic shifter and cable, but if I do, it has a bad brake lock switch. What state are you in? You should be able to find them at a local junkyard. For a manual, the Audi B5 A4 and the Passat both used the same shifter setup. For an Auto, add the B5 S4 and the C5 A6.
None of the B5/B5.5 Passats or B5,B5 and C5 Audis had cable shifters. I expect you can rig up a lever based dual cable system to work, much like the ones in the link above. The transverse system in Golf/TT was cable based and you might be able to adapt one.
I have just bought a 2013 R, and i want to change the wheels. I am looking to trade for Passat Thunder wheels. If anyone is interested send me an email at toxicsanity(at)hotmail.com.
I've been looking around for sway bars, and it seems like no one sells them anymore. Doesn't really matter what kind it is. Its an autocross car / daily so I'm not to terribly worried about the "twitchy" feel from something like the o-bar or SRS.
My visor is fine, I just need a replacement Homelink cover. All of the tabs have broken off it now, except one. And one of the buttons has a broken leaf too.
Anyone have a crappy visor that they can scavenge this cover for me?
Hey everyone! I am new to the forum and plan on replacing my cam gear chain tensioner gasket and half moon seal but the special tool required came in the mail broken. Does anyone have one that I can purchase? willing to drive to pick it up or pay for overnight delivery so I can get the work done...
If you've parted out your B5 and still have the OEM tail lamps, or have replaced the OEM tail lamps, let me know if you would be willing to part with them? I'm looking for a used set (or at least the driver side rear tail lamp) shipped (lowest rate) to NYC. I can pickup if you are...
