    Thread: Where's my 1.8T Fuel Line (engine compartment)? Engine Diagrams Anywhere online?

    1. 05-06-2003 04:14 PM #1
      New owner of a used 99 1.8t seeking the location of the fuel line/filter
      in the engine compatment area.
      Any recommended manuals? Is there a Passat B5 Bentley
      Much easier to find on the A1

      The fuel filter is NOT in the engine compartment. It is located under the car in front of the right rear wheel well behind a plastic skid plate.
      Yes, there is a Bentley for the B5 and also a Haynes/Chiltons. Bentley is the best but costs about $70, Haynes costs about $15.

      Thanks on the Filter info.
      Can you aim me at the actual point where the fuel line comes into the engine compartment?
      I am installing a magnetic mileage enhancer from JC Whitney, need a 2 inch stretch someplace.

      Oh my!.
      I hope you are not really going to install that bit of automotive "snake oil" are you?

      Be careful. Audi may deside to take the car away from you it they find out you did this! You may get on their "not worthy" list.

      Well, with that fancy trip computer I can see how much snake oil it is...if I find a spot to snap
      it on.
      I'm being told passenger side into black box then rails...

      I got two magnets and a zip tie, I will sell you my "mileage enhancer" for $ 9.99. It aligns the fuel molecules so they burn more efficiently.

      There's one born every minute, and when the population has increased sixty-fold, there will be one born every second.
      Keeping your foot out of the long pedal works much better.
