How can you tell a 2003 Passat gl from a gls and a glx?
The GLX is the fully loaded V6 model with 4motion. The GLS comes with a variety of add on options, but still not as equiped as the GLX. And the GL is just very basic... No leather, no power, no toys at all.

If there isn't a drill hole just insert as is.
Is there a fuse problem if your master key is not opening all the doors of your 2001 Passat on the second click and if so which fuse or what other possibilities?
I have had the same issue with my 2002 GLX sedan. I am having issues with the alternator charging intermittently. This has caused my battery to slowly discharge, with iteventually needing replacement. Anyway, this keyless entry issue seemed to happen to me at times when the car battery was almost dead.
Is it normal for a 1993 VW Passat GLX fan to run excessively hard after 15 minutes of driving with AC in medium moving traffic?
Hey Dwayne==The fan is thermostatically controled if it runs long it must need it. GoodluckJoe Yes. From my experience with an identical year/model Passat, the fans will run at high speed in traffic.

If your system kicks into the high speed mode, it just…
