Peace of Mind for your new Passat!

Get the Peace of Mind that your 2012 through 2014 Passat will last forever with our new B7 Passat Panzer Heavy Duty Skid Plate kit. The Panzer will keep that fragile cast aluminum oil pan intact when you run over semi-truck tire debris, dead animals or random ice chunks left on the road like land mines from snow plows. Our kit takes an hour or two to install and is a cheap insurance policy against broken oil pans. The Panzer Plate retains the use of the factory plastic belly pan to keep your car quiet and the engine bay clean. Get one now!

Please note: Owners of all 1.8, 2.5 and 3.6 liter gasoline powered Passats ONLY will need to purchase a 5C0 825 237B TDI plastic belly pan from the dealer to best use our Panzer skid plate. This is due to the fact that we designed the B7 Passat Panzer around the TDI belly pan. Also our Panzer works great with a Frost Heater coolant heater system.

If you have a 2014 or newer Passat with a 1.8 Turbo gasoline engine with code CPRA only, you have an
air pump which is in the way of the front driver's side Panzer mount. Your engine code is printed on top of the timing cover. (Click here for a picture of a CCT engine code sticker.) If you have the CPRA engine you can notch your air pump bracket with a hack saw and then mount it between the Panzer mounting bracket and the frame rail.

Easy to follow instructions, easy install September 27, 2015
Reviewer: Eric Loy from Alvin, Texas  
Let me start by saying that any project that goes off as well as installing this plate on my Passat, without any off the mechanic require cursing, after dropping the kids off at school this morning. In the dirt, on jack stands at there lowest settings, with instructions exclusively read on the screen of an iPhone 5, by a 275, 6-0 tall man; All in under an hour; is either brilliantly designed and instructed, or I did something horribly wrong.
I chose to compliment the quality of the product and the people behind it. This is my second plate to purchase and install since 2007.
Thanks again,

Preparation = awesome July 14, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fayetville, NC  
Nothing against the plate, or the install instructions. Following the install makes this job easy and straight forward. The product is top notch. A little prep on the plate goes a long way. I didn't like the polished look, so. I first used a wax/tar remover on the aluminum, then used some self etching primer, followed up with a spray on undercoating prior to the install. followed the instructions and about an hour later I got a rock solid skid plate that the local dealer thought was a custom fab option. Absolutely great product.

2013 Passat TDI October 26, 2013
Reviewer: William from Florida  
Just got around to installing the Panzer Skid Plate. I followed your instructions and what a breeze to install.  It was so easy.  The fit was great and only took about one and half hours.  It looks great too.  Thanks for all the information and pictures.

Panzer skid plate B7 great product.... October 17, 2013
Reviewer: Tyler Durden from Dallas  
This is an excellent product.  It was straight forward on the install.  Install took just under 2 hours to install by myself without a lift.  The service guys at the dealership commented on how well built it was and how easy it was to remove to do the oil change on my B7.

B7 Passat TDI Panzer Plate September 25, 2013
Reviewer: Ryan from Iowa  
This is a very nice skid plate and I'm very glad Dieselgeek is making these for the B7 Passat.  The installation is very easy and straightforward, and the mounting for the skid plate is very secure.  I have not had a chance to test out this skid plate yet (thankfully!) but there is not a doubt in my mind that this a very solid piece and will provide the much needed protection for all the "low hanging fruit" near the underside of the car.
