2002 Volkswagen Passat Problems

Inspect CV Boots and Joints at Each Service

Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.

Oil Leaks From Camshaft Chain Tensioner and Valve Cover Gaskets

Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.

Digital Display on Instrument Cluster May Fail

The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.

Do I need to replace Hazzard Switch for just one Blinker? (1 answer)

I just replaced the Hazzard Switch a few months ago for both turn signals, now just the right turn signal is out! This happened after I got it back from having my alternator replaced as well as the headlight. Do I need to replace the switch again to get the right blinker to work?

2002 Volkswagen Passat Recalls

Volkswagen Recalls 1999-2005 Passat Models Due to Multiple Fuel System Issues

The heat shield may become damaged and the fuel line/fuel tank ventilation valve may fracture and leak. Both of these conditions are potential fire hazards. Dealers will install an additional underbody heat shield and inspect and replace affected fuel components.

Volkswagen Recalls 2002 Passat Models Due to Incorrect Tires

Volkswagen is recalling models equipped with 4.0L engines because the affected vehicles are equipped with tires of the maximum load rating index 93h instead of 97h. Dealers will replace all four tires with the proper size tires.

Volkswagen Recalls 1997-2003 Models Due to Possible Fuel Leakage

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998 Cabrio, 1997-1999 Jetta, and 1998-2003 Passat models because the fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire goes flat and the vehicle is driven until the tire disintegrates. This may lead to fuel leakage, which can result in a fire. Depending on the model, there are different solutions to the problem. Contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987 for more information.
