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.

My socket set? It's an ex-Richard Lidl Ian Advanced* set, it's excellent.

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

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.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2008 Audi TT - Utterly boring but very compentent, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.
