Leave the scuttle panel blocked, it’ll weigh more when you bridge it.

The windscreen scuttle plastics are such a lash up, at least the ECU is well guarded.

When the scuttle fills with water, it overflows past the pollen filter housing into the passenger footwell. The CCM in under the passenger carpet.......

I'm going to keep an eye on it. Terrible design.

It looks like it was there for a long time, long enough for the sound deadening material to detach and fall on top of it.

That's better.

The replacement facelift B5 Passat vents had been affected by VAG "Project Drive", no backlit icons.

I think it needs a driveshaft and an alternator but it's running fine for now. At least wonky vents are easy to fix.

Aye only about a tenner on eBay. You can change the vents on their own but I'm too hamfisted to deal with brittle and finicky VAG plastic.

Sorry to read about the screwdriver, it's not mine or my Grandads but maybe the garage who did the cambelt for us prehaps? I can go and have word with them if needed next time I'm passing.

 

Nice one on the vent fix was on the to do list along with replacing the scuttle panel but could never could find one local. 

 

All the best with the Passat and look forward to seeing any future updates.

That foam insulation fell to bits on our 2010 A4 a couple of years ago. I don't know if you can blame the screwdriver for that, just crappy VAG parts.

This thing always felt like it was a bit sluggish, not giving its all, there's a flat spot at 2000rpm where there shouldn't be one at all. I bought a cheap length of silicone hose and set about replacing the vacuum hoses and injector leak offs. Can you use silicone for leak offs?

6d8b0e53ad87c154e9646cf89983c26a.jpg

The old foosty vacuum hoses.

afa00b9f06f048a4c5b5bb3219b32139.jpg

New ones in place. Buried down there is a homage to Citroen, the brake vacuum booster looks a lot like an accumulator sphere.

Anyway it seems transformed, less languid at low revs and smoother acceleration. Cheap fix.

Good craic RE eradicating flat spots.

 

Silicone hoses aren't rated for fuel IIRC, specific hoses probably needed although FWIW I'm using them for the crankcase breather on the Volvo, they're not technically rated for oil vapour either but seem to be holding up ok.

The Volvo is comfier and quicker but you need to rev it, which is alien to me. The Volvo makes a lovely noise, it reminds me of my old Audi coupé.

The Passat is plodding away nicely and generating some amazing MPG figures on the readout when driven carefully. (Spuriousness level UNSURE) Even if it's 10% off it's still impressive.

It's still whining, possibly from a drive belt, possibly from the clutch release bearing. I haven't had enough free time to investigate.

One of the hubcaps has lost its VW badge. Weren't they bought new? I guess they are quite old with old glue.

What I did have time to do was clean the MAF sensor with rubbing alcohol. You can see the sensor part and a bit of soot on it in one of the pictures. It was worth doing as it seems to go even better without stour on the sensor.

If it hadn't been for traffic at Perth it would have been closer to 75 mpg.

I didn't realise our own Lord Sterling had owned this car.

43708b049f2e72cec55f3ea0a1d1284c.jpg

There is a whine I've mentioned before, I think I've narrowed it down to the pilot bearing which is a gearbox off job. Ignore at my peril?

The special-ish tools to remove the driveshaft haven't arrived yet, the CV joint really isn't happy now. Otherwise the car is plodding away nicely.
