You have to remove the sunvisors and rain sensor cover & the side trims + upper plastic roof trim there are hidden screws behind the rubber trim on the top section and 4 screws beneath the interior upper plastic section thats why you need to remove the sunvisors etc, it will lift off reasonably easy once all the screws are removed be careful with the plastic pieces I did this job last week takes about 45 mins to remove

2002 Volkswagen Passat / air filters

The intake filter is in a big plastic box all the way to the left if you are looking at the engine, there are four silver clips on each side to pull it off.

The cabin/heater filter is next to the battery. If you are looking at the engine, you need to take the big plastic piece that is closest to the windshield off. Do this by pulling the rubber strip (that runs from one side of the car to the other, holding it on) off, and then the big plastic cover will lift up and out. The air filter is to the left of the battery.

Everytime it rains hard my carpet is wet by the door on the driver side and also driver side rear door

There is a great possibilty that there is a leak on the Left Side of the Windshield. It is most likely in the area of the upper left side.
The reason for this conclusion is:
The rain water is coming in the Left Upper Side; and either coming down the "A" Pillar, or traveling underneath the trim on the inside roof and coming down the "B" Pillar.
The only other explanantion is a torn, worn, cracked or dislocated Weather Seal on one or both of the doors, allowing rain water to come in. Inspect very carefully these Weather Seals, especially on the top front portion of the rear door.
To help you locate these after a hard rain:
Take the trim panels off the "A: and "B" Pillars and the Roof Line above both Doors. Check for wetness underneath the trim. Or take these trim panels off, and place folded paper towels under the trim panels; reattach the trim panels and wait until it rains. Afterwhich, take these trim panel off and check the paper towels for wetness.
The Windshield Seal is easily inspected for cracks and tears.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

How do you take the plastic cover off the driver side read light as the bulb need replacement and what is the bulb replacement number to purchase

To change the bulb. Using the trim tool or a very small screwdriver. Start on the windshield side. Slowly pry the cover tabs out. Do not do this on the side towards the seats it will break off the tab that turns the light on & off. WINDSHIELD SIDE ONLY!!!!!!!!!!

My driver side door handle is broken on a 2003 VW new beetle. How can I fix it?

remove the inside door trim and remove the weatherproof plastic that covers the holes in the door behind the trim.
You should have access to the door handle nuts and rods to remove the handle.
re assemble in the reverse order and make sure the weatherproof plastic is put back on and sealed or your door may let water enter the car via the door

How to remove battery from 2003 Volkswagen Passat?

The battery hold down bolt is on the right front lower corner of the battery. You will probably have to take off the cowl plastic vent panel, but remove the windshield wipers first. If it is a factory battery , it will be heavy lifting it out from that position. I am repairing the front of a 2003 Passat in my shop  now. Good luck!

Replaceing the passenger side mirror on 2002 Chrysler minivan

Assuming that you have power mirrors, the fix is as follows:
remove the passenger side cover on the windshield/door pillar by first removing the pull handle. My experience has been that with some reasonable pulling the plastic trim should unhook from the body without too much fuss. You may want to buy a trim stick for working around the edges to get the clips loose without marring the plastic. You will also need the trim stick to pull up the plastic cover on the instrument panel (that part that covers the speakers and overlaps the vinyl that faces the passenger compartment) - but pull the panel cover up just enough to get at the mirror electrical connector (if you pull it all the way up no harm will be done) unhooked. Once that is done, move to the outside and remove the plastic cover from the door/mirror assembly (there is a ribbed section that is split into an upper and lower half and you are going to take the trim stick to the top half) The screws holding the mirror in place will no be exposed and you will remove them.

Put things back in reverse order and you're good to go.
