SOURCE: Brake Problem on 2004 VW Passat

You have to get CV Boots replaced, this happens because they split. What happen was something got stuck inside the axel where the little boots is held on and split that little piece of rubber (its easy to do). As a result, fluid leaks and and spashes on the back tires so you never know it happens. When you make turns the car will make a clicking noise. You can add fluid but, it will continue to leak out if those boots are split so, you have to replace the boots. I had to replace the boots and axel because the boots come on the axel. Its an expensive project. Boots, axel and labor $500 starting if you go through the dealer. Also, if you have an extended warranty they won't cover it because there is no time frame when these boots split it just something that can happen. Honestly, they know this is something common especially if you drive through snow.

SOURCE: 2004 VW passat not heating

COLD AIR WHEN IDLING COULD BE...
1) Low on coolant - the most common reason for this heater problem. Make sure your coolant level is full.
If the level is low, it could be because the radiator cap is not sealing well or it could also be a cracked overflow container (hot coolant that bleeds out of the engine and drops to the street so you never see the puddle on your driveway).

2) An air-lock in the coolant system - it needs to be burped. Park your car facing-up the steepest hill you can find. Remove the radiator cap a (be careful - best to do when engine is cold) and rev engine to 2000 RPM for 60 seconds - hopefully the air will burp out the cap. Top it off with 50/50 antifreeze.

3) A disconnected or cracked vacuum line. I've heard about this one but never investigated.

SOURCE: Air-conditioning not icy cold inside my VW Passat TDI 1996

chances are if you system was serviced by modern equipment then they would have pulled a vacuum before recharging .. that would eliminate moisture in the system .. the evaporator is inside your heater box .. you cant see it .. the condenser is the radiator like device in front of your engine cooling radiator ..

if the system is changed properly and still does not work or works intermittantly . then there is a good chance that the air conditioner clutch electronic module is bad .. thats a relay like device located on the drivers side behind the dash .. you have to snap off the dash side panel .. its normally hidden by the door .. inside that is the fuse panel and behind that is the relays/electronic modules .. the one that operates the air conditioner clutch is marked 384 .. there are other possibilities depending on your a more precise description of the problem ..

2000 vw passat smells like gas when driving why?


If it is a diesel , then you have a fuel container in the trunk that has dumped over and is leaking gas into the trunk area?
If your Passat is a gasoline engine , then I am going to say you have a fuel leak (possible fuel line rot).
Start the car and leave it in park... exit the car and inspect the underside for drips...alternatly you may choose to park the car in a spot you know is free of debrise and stains etc. and run the car there while parked for a few minutes and then pull it forward and inspect the ground for new fuel staining.

Will the weight of 20inche rims hurt the transmission of a 2 wheel drive 2001 VW Passat, and I smell a burning rubber smell in my Passat when I turn the heat on and 15mins later it goes away,what is that...


No, the weight of the wheels isnt the problem. Jack the car up and look at the inside wall of your tires, they are probably rubbing somewhere. On some cars, when you install different rims, you need to buy spacers that go between wheel and the rotor. If you dont, the tires can rub. Sometimes they only rub when turning. See if this is your problem. Hope this helps

yes that is very possable because that cover would have to be removed for the oil change. the beast cure would be to get a few cable ties or zip ties to tie it back up
