Breakers yards or main dealers. Someone might be able to post a part number.
There's a few VW dealers near me, so if I knew the exact part number that would work.Breakers yards or main dealers. Someone might be able to post a part number.
I could do that!Get bit of pipe cut it down middle length ways sleave it over the pipe with with cut side away from the hole tape it up. Will be sound till you get new 1.
Doesn't seem to be rubbing on anything that I can tell.Also, it's got to be worth checking out if it is rubbing on something ?
Would be a shame to be in the same boat a few months down the line.
Best of luck
I could tape it around/up, yeah, that would be simple enough. I removed the pipe earlier this afternoon just to check it out. Apart from the obvious hole is seems in reasonable enough condition. It wasn't super brittle and falling apart in my hands.self-amalgamating tape will fix that.
The rubber looks perished. Perhaps someone has been cleaning it with WD40 in years gone by.
The good thing about self-amalgamating tape for this is that it all bonds together forming one piece of "rubber" that can't be sucked in. Even normal tape would do. There's more chance of sucking in what you put over the hole first rather than sucking the tape itself in.I like to put something over the hole before taping it as I get paranoid about sucking tape in to the engine but with right tape I'm sure it's not a problem
