Another stupid one.

How the f*ck does the aux heater come out past the past bar across the main dash frame when the glovebox is out?

Following Haynes manual for matrix removal, got past first pipe on the Matrix but need more wiggle room to remove lower pipe - can’t get aux heater out to allow more space to adjust it; matrix only needs to come forward at the top a few mm and the pipe will be better lined up to pop off!

The rope was instrumental in giving me the leverage to remove the top one 😅

Stupid question

was talking to @StorableComa about this and he couldn’t answer. So I figured I’d ask here

the cooling system on the mk7 and 7.5. The radiator, pump and all ancillary things. Are they different than the ones in the golf wagon?

All I know is the thermostat housing leaks in the Golf just like the GTI. 😂

Nope....the GSW is only different after the rear axle......so for the same engine & same spec both hatch & estate will be the same front end..

So the GTI and golf wagon share the same radiator, fan, water pump etc?

No.......I'll repeat:- "for the same engine & same spec both hatch & estate will be the same front end".

The GTI engine was never fitted to the GSW.....the nearest is the 1.8lt which has some differences between it & the 2lt GTI...

Please correct me if im wrong, but i was under the impression that in order to read ethanol content in the jb4 app I would need to purchase the Fuel It kit from BMS.

The reason I am inquiring is because the other day i filled up with E30 at the pump and in the app it read 30 for E85 content, and then yesterday i filled ip 11 gallons of 93 and in the jb4 app it read 7 for E content. Is this some kind of fluke/coincidence or what?

Thanks in advance
