You have to know that VW Passat B6 (2005-2010) has two fuse boxes:
– first one is located on the left side of the dash panel behind the plastic cover
– the second one is located in the engine compartment on the left side of the car

You have to replace the defect fuse with a new fuse of the same ampere number! You should never repair fuses and do not replace them with a fuse of a higher amperage, it may cause fire.

I recommend always carrying replacement fuses in your vehicle because you never know when you need it.

Below you can see the diagram from the fuse panel on the left side of the dash panel:
