Inertia switch on 04 VW Passat


All these switches I have found are on the passenger side. Either in the trunk or behind the kick panel on the passenger side. Rarely do these go bad.. And they only need reset if you have a front end accident. If you are not getting fuel check the fuses and or the fuel pressure.

2002 Volkswagen passat 6 cyl replace thermostat


This is a time consuming process, that should not be done, unless you are sure of your mechanical skills, the thermostat is behind the timing belt (why VW ever did that I do not know). You will have to remove the front bumper, and put the front of vehicle into what is called service position, meaning the front end of the car, radiator and mounting moves forward a few inches. It sounds complicated but its not really to bad.
Then you will need to removed the serpentine belt and power steering pulley. Remove timing belt covers. Then either removed the top portion of timing belt and then remove thermostat housing, or if you are really patient, you can try to squeeze the thermostat out from behind, but it is not easy at all.

All in all, this job for a DIY is probably around 5-8 hours of work and I would not attempt unless you have done something like this before.

Show me how to replace a water on a 1999 VW Passat e a water pump on a 1999 VW Passat


It depends on what engine you have, but all 3 are similar. They are all in the front of the engine, so the water pump can be run by a belt. With the 1.8 turbo, it is run by the serpentine belt, but you still have to take the timing belt off because it is behind the timing belt slightly. The Vr6 is run by the timing belt, so also needs the belt removed. The V6 was less common, but also difficult. You do not have to take the timing belt off I think, but you have to remove the whole chassis at the front, because there is so little room otherwise. There really are only 4 main bolts holding the whole chassis front on. It is recommended that the thermostat and timing belt be done at the same time, to save labor, since it is intensive on any engine.

2000 VW passat timing belt replacement


80 000miles(120 000km) is recomended by the dealer but it's safer at 40 000miles(60 000km) its safer for town driving and cold conditions considering the diffirence between a cambelt change and a replacemnet engine and downtime.

WHERE IS THE TIMING BELT LOCATED ON MY 1998 VW PASSAT?


Timing belt is hidden under all accessories (alternator, A/C compressor, Power Steering pump, etc.) It is a difficult repair, on many VW models it requires removal of the whole 'front clip' which involves fenders, grill and radiator. Expect $600 -$800 cost. Usually the water pump should also be changed with timing belt - just because to tear engine down that far, it is a preventative step to save future problems.
