  1. Folks, as the summer rains continue, it’s worth a quick check of the boot badge drain tube. I was surprised to see the end of mine had perished and almost detached completely. This is going to let water get inside the boot lid & needs a replacement (sub £6). I’m told this is a common problem, but extended warranty won’t cover it, at least in my case when I enquired. Overjoyed to learn that the boot lock/latch needs to come off to attach the new tube.... Check your grommets!
  2. Hi all Has anybody got any tips for locating a screenwash leak? I noticed that the wash bottle was empty yesterday (which is odd because I top it off every week or so with screenwash I "acquire" at work) anyway, I topped it up today and it was empty by the time I got home from work half an hour later - no level warnign light on and still screenwash coming out the nozzles - therefore I assume not 100% empty (?) I've had a very quick look under the car and around the wash bottle with a torch - can't locate an obvious leak/wet spot, also absolutely zero water in the boot/tailgate etc as per the usual washer leak that was common from the mk4 onwards. I'm thinking of putting a very slow hose pipe in the top of the wash bottle and then watching for leaks.......other than this being karma for stealing screenwash from work, any suggestions? Hoping I don't have to go the whole hog and remove the wheel/arch liner etc in order to get to it! Thanks
  3. Hi, recently purchased a mk6 golf r and I had noticed a small oil leak on my drive coming from the rear diff, upon further inspection I have found it’s not from either the diff drain plug or the haldex plug. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Am I right in thinking the cam cover is weaping/leaking here? is this an issue I should get the dealer to rectify?
  5. As above, my drivers side rear carpet is sodden. I did a previous thread and some said it may be the rear wiper pipework. I decided to take my car to the local VW dealer and they said they would charge me £74 to diagnose the issue (I’m out of warranty) which I was happy to swallow. Their diagnosis today was that they wanted to take all the seats and carpets out the car at a cost of over £400 to diagnose where the leak is coming from. Even though it is clearly only wet on the drivers side rear carpet which I think is a piss take! thought I’d have a go myself if it is reasonably straight forward to lift the rear carpets. Anyone done this ? Cheers
  6. Had the low coolant warning light come on this morning in rush hour traffic!.. I got to work and couldn't see anything obvious, after checking this lunch i noticed the coolant pipe to the right hand side has rubbed on the airbox fin and has worked it's way through. Off i went to VW Leeds, after a lot of toing and froing they opened another customers bonnet where i looked and saw that this seem to be unique to my car as the other R DSG had around 1cm space. Question is.. is yours rubbing or have you got a gap? it looks like my rad could have moved back or the pipes twisted somehow.
