It was stuck tight in there even after you remove the bleeder clip and pulled it up some? Mine literally fell out when I lifted itDid this today. That little yellow diaphragm thing was really seated there. Couldn’t get it out without really tearing the thing up and marring the inside of the valve up along with it. Anyone else have this issue?
Also one of those clips was crumbled upon removal and is pretty much vaporized. Are those at all standard or is it VW proprietary?
