I had the same problem once I had left them folded in at the car wash and they pulled them straight by hand. IIRC I had to manually push them back IN then start the car and tell the switch to unfold them. I know theres a reset procedure for this though.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 How do I take off the mirror cover cap of the side mirrors on a B6

Hello i just picked up B6 side exterior mirrors from a scrap yard and would like to install them on my B5. Mine is from a 2004.5 so the bases are the same as the B5s but I cant figure out how to take off the mirror cap. I need to do this because I plan on installing chrome ones.

On the B6 Behind the mirror glass is the retaining ring that you have to remove to access the clips that hold on the mirror cap. Snap out the mirror Remove the round mirror retaining screws (I believe there are 3) Slide the clip back as you lift on the cap. The cap should pop up

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Electrical Problems No Windows No Side Mirrors No Sunroof and No Criuse Control.

My car 1999 VW Passat GLS 1.8T with Automatic (TIP) AEB Engine Code. Hi all of those things in my car just stopped working all at the same time I did do a search and came up with nothing if anyone can post a link to another thread about a similar problem that would help out a lot The only thing electrical that died in my car recently was my neutral safety switch it seems that the other problems started

Im not aware of any common components between the CCM stuff and the cruise control module (other than maybe some wiring in the same harness). So it might be two separate issues. Id pull up the carpet and check the CCM wiring harness. As luxuryedition says maybe its bad wiring.

OK can you tell me how to pull up the carpet under the drivers seat

OK so I did a little searching and I found out that you just take off the dead pedal and then pull up the carpet out of the side lower molding and it should just come out. I will attempt to do this and look at my wires at the CCM and try to find a loose connection. Thanks to everyone for the help

OK so I raised up the carpet and found the CCM and the wires. It was wet under there but not on top of the carpet just underneath it. I think I may have a plugged up battery drain. Now which colored wire is for the windows and the side mirrors and the sunroof TIA

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 B5.5 Mirrors on a B5

Will side view mirrors from a b5.5 fit on a b5 If so its possible to splice in the blinker on the mirror to work as well correct

the fender indicator as well then there may be problems with the blinker relay (4 x 21W) having too many bulbs to run....might act funny....although they are only 5W so it might be okay. Just thought Id mention it as a potential problem. This may possibly be solved by getting the trailer towing version switch (6 x 21W) which is designed for the extra two bulb load. You could also just put a couple

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 2003 Passat Drivers side mirror mirror flew off purchasing and installing new one

Yup when my passenger side mirror broke the cheapest replacement I could find was roughly 50. I ended up just replacing both mirrors with the blue aspherical mirrors for slightly more (thats why I have a spare drivers side mirror).

Hey guys here is the situation I came across today while trying to do some maintenance on my car. I was repairing the rear passenger side window. the plastic pin that holds the window fell out so I put it back and used some zip ties to make sure that the pin never falls out again. once I finished i tested the window and it worked flawlessly. so I closed it.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Windows electric mirrors cabin lights not working after motor wash

Hi I have a VW Jetta 1999 B5 and after a motor wash that my mechanic did my power windows mirrors and inside lights stop working any ideas of where to start Thanks V.

Start with determining if you have a Passat or a Jetta Then have your mechanic fix your car since he screwed it up. You probably have a blown fuse but if he went overboard you could have water under the drivers side carpet and it shorted out or corroded the wiring splices to the CCM that controls those items.
