    I had the timing belt changed in my 1998 passat and a few days later I noticed my door locks not working. Then we had a big rain and I had a lake in my back drivers side floor. Heard a large "boom" and my battery is no longer charging and windows don't roll down and radio always on even when key taken out. I took it to the garage that changed the timing belt but they don't know if they can even fix the problem. Could they have not hooked something back up properly when changing the timing belt?

Hi mont 111, I have to say in capital letters THAN YOU! you've made my day and pocket very happy. Too many people said it could be my A/C, DOORS, SUNROOF, and some other stuff. This simple to do step was all I needed. Thanks again for solving my problem.

Drain holes are gapped. Clean the drain holes. There are two in engine area. One is under the servo booster (black pot), other is under car battery.

It may be the aircon leaking; this made the passenger side soaking wet in mine. The drain hose hadn't been fitted correctly.

How do I remove the front seats for 2001 VW Passat?

Raise car and block securely. Underneath on floor pans directly below seats you will see oval or round rubber grommets.(plugs) Use flat screw driver to pry out. You will see a nut under each. Remove nuts and remove seat. Installation of aftermarket seats may require you to drill new holes and or addition of shims to square up the base of the new seat. Flat washers work well.

I have a 2004 VW Passat with heated seats. Neither the driver side or passenger side heated seats work. I checked all the fuses in the side dash panel. All appear to be good. I need to know which fuses,...

Before you do all that look under the seats and make sure the wiring plug did not come disconnected. Sometime they get caught on something and get unplugged.

Keep find water on driver side floor and behind driver seat

Do you have a sun roof ? if yes make sure water is not leaking from there, BUT if you don't have a sunroof then have a look under the car's body, there might be some rusty area of a hole under the body letting the water from the road to get in.

99 vw passat doors will not open with remote & only 1 door will unlock sometime. rear door locks don't work most of the time.

I had the same problem on my 1998 passat and the first thing i done is take off the drivers side controls for electric windows etc(first step to door card removal) and upon disconnecting the multisocket and putting it back on just to try before going ahead, everything worked again.My problem was N/S rear and O/S/F doors wont open/unlock and drivers front works with key but does not work central locking or window etc.Just a wipe with WD40 on a artist paintbrush to lube it and it was fine but i could see fine damp in the door(i live in Birmingham, U.K and it was snowing for a one month period) which i suspect was from the un-usual cold weather we had.I had lived in East Sussex prior so from warm to freezing was most likely the cause as the door lock froze and one door even flew open as the catch froze and the locked door appeared closed but just stuck closed, wd40 solved that also.Hope this helps.

Water in VW Passat 1999. Car no longer works. What could be wrong

Does your passat have a moonroof? Mine does. The comfort control module under the drivers seat was shot. It pretty much controls everything. I havr dried it out twice now. Repair cost was 800.00 Would NEVER buy another volkswagen. Very poor design
