SOURCE: passat 2002 v6 steering fluid deposit

Oops, sorry about that.....

The power steering fluid reservoir is located just behind the drivers (LHD) headlight, just forward of the washer fluid reservoir.

The reservoir has a green cap on it and a plastic trim panel to conceal the sides, it is circled here:

The resovior is on the drivers side near the fender, it has a green cap on it. Use only VW fluid or you will have huge problems.

SOURCE: I need to replace the thermostat in my 2002

Yes you can repair the thermostat by yourself, I have done it. Assuming that you have a V6, because you did not say if it was a 4 cyl or 6 cyl. If it is a 4 then it will be easier, and the thermostat is on the driver side at the bottom of the water pump housing.
A V6 does require that you place the front panel & radiator into service position. To do this you need to remove the plastic engine cover under the car, and the plastic in front of the wheels in the well. Now, the hood release must be detatched. The power steering hose that runs to the bottom of the radiator set to the side, but not removed. The front of the car is going to come off, and the bumper. Drain the radiator, and disconnect the two hoses at the top next to the spill over resevoir.
The manual says to use two long dowels to support the radiator and its support panel, but I found that a floor jack works best, and since you do not really need to raise the car for this job, I find it easier not to. Just open the panel from one side, and leave the air conditioning side all connected. This will give you lots of room to work with. It make take you a little bit at first, but you will get fast at it. This is how you work on this car with tons of space.
The thermostat is on the front of the engine block, inside the hose, just pull the hose off, and remove a few bolts on the cover. Make sure you have a new O-ring to go with that thermostat.
No doubt that getting the car into service position, with the radiator panel away from the car, but it allows for you to get your tools in with leverage. Unfortunately, this job would be a snap if it were not for the fact that you have to put it in service position, nut other jobs it will help. You will need to take off the drive belt for this job, for access. It is not a problem, just replace it while you are there, if it is worn at all.
This job will take me 3 hrs, and I have done it many times, but I am slow. Be prepared to work all weekend if you dont have a manual to follow. They can reveal every screw and bolt.

How to install a serpentine belt on a 2001 Volkswagen Passat


there are 15 serpentine diagrams for the belt on vw engines to 2001
some have no ac , power steering etc
need engine size
you could try this the grooves are for driving pulleys so any grooved pulley it has to go around
flat pulleys run on the back of the belt so they will be idler pulleys
start at the crank and work to the left if there is a flat pulley between two grooved pulleys the back goes around it and so on

I was driving home last night and I heard this loud metal crash/scapping/thud. Soon after my battery light came on, it felt like my power steering went out, and car would not heat up, and eventually by car...


Sounds like you broke your drive belt. The drive belt controls the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and AC. When it breaks, you lose all. Hope fully you didn't do any damage to the motor by over heating. I'm guessing that by the sound that you have described, the belt tenioner pulley may have broken off. This keeps the belt tight. Good luck with it. Let me know if it was not that, as there may be more avenues to look at.
