    Greetings. Hopefully this should be a quick and easy one for all of you with miles traveled under the hood of the 2.0t Passat. Without further ado, there is a plastic duct, about four to six inches long, formed in an elbow shape, that connects to the MAF sensor on one side and a rubber intake...

    Looks like some time in the past, clumsy tyre replacement has squashed a pipe near the forward jacking point (Drivers-Left hand) side. I followed it from the front left when arch to the rear left wheel arch (Vacuum leak pump line?) If it is, it could be why i get a "gas cap leak-small", once in...

    So I found the cause of a leak and the part that was leaking I thought was the ccv but now through research I don't think its that. Its next to the turbo and my finger is pointing at it. Can anybody name that part or give me a site with diagrams that I can use?

Marty, being the great guy he is, wanted to make sure I have the original to avoid the core charge. So I've checked, but there is no sticker as the...
