The copper washer previously mentioned sealing the flexible brake pipe to the brake caliper was actually a aluminium washer that corrodes. The replacement is a copper washer.

The rear tailgate washer tupe can split anywhere after a bout of freezing weather, in my case above the hatch lock.

In addition, centre console trim creaks on many a Golf.

SO WHY DID WE BUY THESE GOLFS?.

Was just thinking that too!!!

My centre console and drivers door squeeks. Had a couple of leaks from where the hose enters the rear wash wipe, (got so peed off with it I superglued the bugger, now no wash!!) and the boot lock stopped working. And now I have slight corrosion around the rear hatch handle.

But I still love my Golf.
