The Volkswagen Passat Service Manual: 1998-2005 is a comprehensive source of service information and specifications for Volkswagen Passat models built on the B5 platform from 1998 through 2005. Service to Volkswagen owners is of top priority to Volkswagen and has always included the continuing development and introduction of new and expanded services.
