Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.

Cheers

SOURCE: 99 vw passat won't always start

That would be your Ignition switch my friend, happens to most the vw's within their 200k mile life span. if you turn the key and it doesn't start, try (as you have the key engaged to start the engine) lightly leaning the key up, down, left, right, sideways, which ever way possible, or even pushing the key its self into the ignition as far as it will go, if its the ignition switch, the car will most likely start. Now, for saftey reasons i will tell you not to drive the car once you do get it started, for the only problem i had with doing that was as i was driving down the road, the started engaged when ever i would push the clutch in, so i had to resort to "speed shifting", and something like that could lead to an accident. if you bring it to a local repair shop it shouldnt cost you more the $100 to fix.

SOURCE: Interior trim panel removal instruction

Normal 0 . Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.


If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

I believe it has to do with your traction control sensors and that one of the sensors may be faulty

Where is VW Passat 2003 year, 2.8L Motor Fuse panel


Hi!!
The Fuse Box on the passenger compartment is located on the driver' side end of the Instrument Panel. To remove the cover just insert a flat screwdriver or similar tool to pop the cover. See the following pictures.

Cant find fuse box in W8 2003 VW Passat any body have an idea? Tried passanger side were it should be but air bag is at that side! Regards John


VW never had their fuse boxes and relay panel at the passenger side. It's always where the instrument cluster is located. This would always be the case, doesn't matter if you live in a country with right hand drive or left hand drive, it is always situated where the instrument cluster is located. The reason is because all information that's vital to your vehicles operation is monitored through it's instrument cluster through warning lights (idiot lights). VWs designed it with this in mind "electric current diminishes the farther it has to travel from it's electrical source". Pry off the driver side cover if not mistaken.

Check the dash light fuse. Maybe a problem with the headlight switch.

2003 automatic VW Passat not changing gears right


The trannys on the vw's are weird, they actually have a brain which tells the tranny what to do, when to switch gears under the driving conditions etc. Is thair a check engine light on? when is the last time you had a tranny service done on it? Also, it sounds even weirder, but is your alternator ok, is it putting out the proper volts to the battery? the alternator not charging the system can lead to alot of weird acting issues.

Got a light on by my spedo and dont no what it for it is a orange triangle with a ! mark in it and an arrow arawnd it all orange it is next to the abs light on my vw passat please can u help me anna


I'm guessing you do not have an owners manual to check! If not I think it is the ESP warning light which is linked to abs, I'm sure this will need vw diagnostic machine to fix

Rectangular shape with knobs light on my 2003 VW Passat


Could it be a battery shape? Red in color - means "Generator". VW recommends not driving if this stays on. Alternator belts may be loose or broken and/or electrical malfunction
