    Hi; I am having some problems with the power steering of my Passat 2.8 V6 BBG 120000KM. I have done some research and read many posts but I am still confused.

    I'm sure this is a stupid question , but I need to flush out my heater core. It is clogged. I need to get to heater hoses, but they are covered by a corrugated plastic cover. Do I just push it down toward the ground? I don't see that there is a way to unsnap or unhinge it from around hoses...
