C3 gone and I think laguna is going in part x against the Duster unless anyone wants it really badly.

Golf and Fiesta still here and cheap!

Silly question of the day, did the van sale go through?

 

A mate of mine local to you is looking for a van.

That looks grim, I remember driving one half the length of the country when they were quite new. It did very well, but was as exciting as a wet weekend in Margate.

Enjoy it and don't spare the silicone.

Screwfix own brand black silicone is cheaper so I think that'll be what it's getting :D

Ordered a new gear knob and leather for the Passat for no reason other than it was £6 which is stupendous value

Going to wet vac the hell out of the seats when I get a chance and had really better put the spare wheel on in place of the OSR which has a racing slick!

Can't believe the quality of this for £6 - yes it's a little shiny and plasticy but it comes complete with the frame and everything

If I remember correctly it has already had a replacement gaiter and knob. Check in the history.
It's possibily the start of the decline in German quality. 3 gaiters and knobs. Disgusting.
Keep up the good work!

Not bad in 280k miles really :D

Really must start on the cleaning, drying and leak sealing

Few days getting rained on (in) followed by a nice sunny day today lead to the Passat being like a fucking steam room when I went to move it today!

Grim.

Stuck it inside my unit with a dehumidifier running in the cabin to try and dry it out

These are the ones that block up the drains in the scuttle panel aren't they? Might be a decent place to start..

I had to take the carpets out of my old passat to dry them out, they were soaking! I had to seal the pollen filter housing to cure the leak for a while.

I've already taken the scuttle plugs out following flooding several times before in the passenger side.

Have you removed the ecu casing and sealed it up in there yet?

I haven't touched it yet, letting it dry out first

Saw a video on YouTube of someone doing just that though :)

Cracking little motor, I don't even think it's too rusty to be salvageable although haven't had a proper look under it yet!

Love me a Felicia so I do, this is my third :D

Having looked properly at the NSR wheel arch I'm not so sure about that last statement re rust :D

I might give it a skim of filler and a suitably horrible lick of paint before it gets any worse :)
