Re: B5 1.8t vag com readings

Still work in progress throttle body is clean and realigned with ignition on and wait til sound stops from the alignment. No vac leaks but haven't checked injectors or seals yet although it does look a touch moist where they sit so maybe that's my issue. Is it a easy job and if that is the case wher...

B5 black plastic hose

Hi all b5 1.8t there is a L shaped hose that connects on the top corner of the inlet manifold which in turn connects to a plastic hose with two outlets. It is the plastic hose that needs replacing as it is leaking. Does anyone have a part number and is there an o ring in the hose. Cheers

Re: inner plastic bit in door mirrors

No not the bit the glass sticks to,the bit which goes which goes around the inside of the mirror which sits behind the glass to stop water getting in,if that makes sense?

inner plastic bit in door mirrors

Hi all, on a b5 door mirror just behind the glass there is a inner black plastic surround that stops water getting behind the glass etc,is this part replaceable as I broke it trying to replace the glass as the heater element burnt out?
Many thanks
