Needed to replace two headlights on 2001 Passat.
Received quickly and in beautiful shape. My friend and I are not auto mechanics or auto body pros. The removal an installation went like a dream. The sellers video was a great help and made what I thought was to be a nightmare into a dream install come true. This will.be my go to supplier for all my car needs. Thanks so very much!!

04 Passat Headlights
Purchased these back in August of 2017 to replace the factory headlights that were dull and the adjusters were broke. They came earlier then anticipated and looked great and even came with bulbs. We installed them about 2 weeks later. Easy install after removing the grille and front bumper cover but could never get them to adjust. We decided to hold off as we did not want to break the adjusters after researching it. Recently we had the car in to a VW / Audi repair shop for other work and asked them to adjust them. Same problem, they told us the adjusters were not moving at all and didn't want to risk breaking them. Recommended using only genuine VW parts and not aftermarket parts from China. may try to remove and work on them in the spring time. Beware, you get what you pay for!

Look nice, but .......
the lights look nice once installed but I had to have a second set sent to me because the first ones came off the track when trying to adjust them. This was very easy to do, there is no resistance or stop point, once you have gone too far that is it, they are broken. this happened because of the projector style fixture they are, this is a European design and is not good, I never could get them to adjust high enough to shine down the road decent, the cutoff is terrible.

Exactly what we needed
My old headlights had become quite yellowed and dim (2003 Passat). Ordered these and had my mechanic install them. It's wonderful to be able to see the road again! They arrived quickly and were exactly what we needed.

Passat 2001 replacement headlights
Easy to order, shipped timely, fairly easy install with video. Hardest part was dealiing with fastener holding grill. Backing came loose had to cut old headlight to get pliers on it to hold from spinning. New headlights fit well look like new!

Do you need to align the headlight assemblies after install or are they factory pre-set?
Eugene D on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you need to align them. For the units I got, I never successfully got them aligned properly. The alignment wormgears are made of plastic and it's easy to strip the gears, so be careful. There are guideson the internet specific to the Passat B5 headlights that
May help.
