Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

The horn has died on our 2000 passat estate it got quieter and quieter and harder to work, a friend recomended banging it with a hammer while pressing the horn. This did not work although the horns made a sound when tapped. Is it the connection to the stearing wheel or will a new horn solve the problem?

Check the horn relay is ok,
Check the horn ground is ok.

Place a trouble light across the horn supply- when horn is pressed it should light up steady.
If it lights up, the voltage to the horn is ok -then a replacement horn should fix it.

Hi. When I turn my car on the horn is sticking and won't stop. But I can still push the horn and it sounds. I have a 2006 VW Passat 2.0t


I'm not sure I understand this. If the horn is already honking, how can you honk it? Most cars have two horns. A hi and a low sound. While the horn is stuck, open the hood and disconnect the one that is sounding. That won't fix the cause, but at least it will be quieter until you can have it diagnosed by a mechanic.

Check your motor mounts, it sound like your motor is rocking back and forth. You can confirm this by watching the engine while someone shifts it in and out of gear for you.

Rear door won't open


this is fairly common i,m afraid and there is no easy solution.:(......the lock mechanism siezes up you can try banging the door just below the hanldle while you cycle the central locking it sometimes releases it,otherwise you have to pull door panel off and then remove window regulator with the door stuck shut.then you need to basically destroy the lock with a hammer and bar to get it to release.this is not a easy job .i would recomend vw specialist or main dealer.sorry to be the bearer of bad news.hope you get on ok.

I have a VW passat estate on a 51 plate,when the engine is cold the gear change is fine yet the further I go the harder it is to change gear


I experience the same problem in my '03 passat TDI130 5dr. Gearchange when hot became increasingly baulky.

VW Checked this out, linkages, clutch hydraulics etc were fine.

Solution was to have the Gearbox Oil changed. This cost about £65 and was using VW052 transmission fluid.
