I have a body part related question.
I am not happy with the alignment of my bumper cover as it relates to the body. In order to correct it I need to remove the headlight assembly and prior to this I need to remove the center grill assembly. Does anyone know how to do this? There are two bolts to be removed and the rest seems to be some sort of snap in setup. I dont want to force anything it case it might break.

I am curious, is the Passat Wagon still being made until middle 2006?

I thought I saw that, but have not seen anything lately. The 2006 best mileage lists are out, the Passat Wagon isnít on it (or I have not seen it).

It doesnít seem to matter to me what model year designation the car is, if its still being made for the 2006 model year, then it should be included

Answer to my own question. Yes for the 2005 b5.5 Passat, you need the HEX-CAN VAG-COM to get access to everything.

Default Chasis Desgnation and Part Numbers

Hello. nOObie Sloppy Snood here. I own a Northern Green 2005 Passat TDI GLS (2WD).

I am having trouble locating the correct chasis designation and associated part numbers for all the air, fuel, oil, and cabin filter part numbers.

TDIParts.com indicates my chasis is a B5.5 but I do not see part numbers specifically for this chasis. Please help me. -Sloppy

If this vehicle is 05 Passat GLS TDI, you don't need any pliers to change the wiper blades. At least my don't.Just lift the wiper arms from the wind shield, flip the blade over to counterclockwise and slide it out.Replace it with the new one and turn it clockwise to lock in place and "viola"! you are done.

And much lighter in your wallet. You can take the Aero blades apart and replace just the rubber blade portion. Generally costs about $7.

All worked well except the blades didot want to come out. I finally sprayed some WD40 into the groove and let it seep for about 5 minutes. Then I tried to remove the blade from either side. It took awhile to work them free but I finally won the battle. I then cleaned the area with the WD40 and installed the new blades.

I'm trying to change the cabin filter on my 2005 Passat -- the Vortex article shows an older/different VW engine compartment having torx screws...
Am I missing something??? Does the entire one-piece plastic (from passenger side to driver side) come off to change out this filter -- I can see the filter, but I don't see the connectors. It looks like it goes all the up to the windshield glass, over the wiper arms.
How would an A/C mechanic get to the freon connection? How would I replace the battery?
I feel like a real newbie...

dude, chill! it's not that hard.

open the hood; locate the battery. see the trim/rubber seal underneath the battery compartment, that runs the width of the engine bay? pull it out just to the left (or passenger side) of the battery; the cabin filter is located in there and just slides out (you have to pull the plastic piece covering the battery up a little bit to get to it). the filter may be flow specific (ie, it may fit in there in a specific direction); i can't remember, but it will be pretty obvious, as there will be a top up up written on part. replace the seal (make sure it goes on good and tight).

by the way, a search for cabin filter or pollen filter in the b5 forum would have answered this question for you. cheers!

He's talking about actually changing out the "rubbers" inside the "aero" wipers with $5-8.00/pr refills instead of paying $20.00 for EACH replacement blade.

The Passats are larger "B" platform cars, currently the B5 (VW Passat 1998-2005, Audi A4), but the brand-new B6 platform is now available in europe, and will be here this summer. It is a larger car, and no longer shares the Audi longitudinal platform. It is transverse like the G/J/NB. Your 2.0l TDI-PD engine is engine code "BHW". HTH PM me if you have any other questions.

Nick
Go to wikipeida and ask for Passat. It will breakdown the coding for you.
