SOURCE: 2001 vw passat clutch fan replacement

Usually it takes a bench vise and a pipe wrench to turn the fan off the water pump. Also I think these are reverse threads too. Its tough to break it loose either way. You will need to keep the water pump from turning and gently with increasing force break it loose. sometimes some WD-40 helps too. It does take quite a bit of OMMPF to get it off. I am not sure on your model, but be aware it may be Lefty tighty righty loosey instead of the traditional lefty loosey and righty tighty as well. Also sometimes if you take it to the place where your getting your new parts they will he-man it off for you as well, but they may not want to take the liability. Good luck to you.

SIncerely,

JC

SOURCE: 2004 vw beetle trunk problem

I had the same problem and I did the following:
- demount the plastic cover of the trunk (2 screws)
- locked and unlocked the trunk, while it was open to understand the system (it's really easy)
- lubricate all relevant parts
- checked the functionality
- put the plastic cover back on
- done

Overall it took me 15 min. It worked on my beetle. No guarantee. I'm not a technician.

SOURCE: Broken hood latch on a 03 Volks Wagon Passat

use a long flat tip screw driver and a small hammer. have someone pull up on the hood after you pop it from the inside, then while they are holding the hood up use the screw driver and shove the hook that is above the latch bar. when you hit it you will be hitting it to the right

2003 VW Passat wagon, trunk alarm keeps indicating the luggage compartment is open and alarm goes off. Many dealer attempts to fix have failed. Is there a specific fuse for the trunk latch/alarm?


Hi

You have to replace the latch of your trunk. The contact is in the latch and most of the time you have to change the wire and the connector because they are oxided and make a resistance.

If I remember well you cannot remove any fuse to solve your problem because the fuse will affect some interior lamps and door lock system.

I had the same problem on a VW Golf

Vw 2006 passat trunk won't close


this always happens to my 06 passat when its really cold, im talking 0 or lower. i try not to open the trunk in the winter if i can help it. Its annoying but in the summer i have no problems. I have herd of alot of other people having this problem, VW knows about it and dosnt think its a recall item for somereason, look for your fancy gas door to not open next, i know of 3 people that started having trunk problems and then the fuel door stopped working, not sure if it has anything to do with it or not. but It happend to me and now i have the auto fuel door disconnected from the inside of the trunk.
The trunk issue isnt anything big to worry about it seems intermittent. I found latches and there a little pricey thats why i just deal with it.

2001 VW GTI VR6 alarm goes off randomly... make it stop


could possibly be a faulty latch. door latch, trunk latch, hood latch. something sporadically not recognizing a closed latch to cause it to go off sporadically. a scan with a vw scan tool or a vag com should detect a fault in the convenience system.

2003 VW Jetta trunk does not open


most likely cause is latch cover plastic has broken and got lodged in the latch mechanism. now the fun part, fold down back seat , slide into trunk with a phillips screwdriver a flashlight and a large strait blade screwdriver, once in trunk remove trunk cover, then with strait blade unlatch the trunk. once lid is open remove latch and take out broken plastic to free up latch and reinstall then retest before closing trunk.
