Do-it-Yourself Tip

To remove the VW Passat driveshaft you will need the 30mm socket shown below to remove the axle nut from the hub to free the driveshaft. The B5 Passats all use tripodic style inner CV joints which are bolted to the transmission using hex head bolts. Once you remove those and the axle nut the driveshaft should swing out pretty easy. The passenger side axle is also shown below.
