Think I've found part one of my water leak. Below is the picture of where we can see the leak... It's coming off the housing near the top nut. If you can't tell this housing is on the right hand side of the cylinder head above the gearbox!

top tip - when you get a new one DON'T OVERTIGHTEN IT!

I did and it pee-d coolant everywhere.

I've also heard that the VW ones are much better than the cheaper TORPAN copies - (prepared to be shot down in flames but my experience backs this up)

Hahe yep! I used a genuine vw flange on a mk3 golf, and it literally felt appart in my hands, and that was after waiting 3 days for them to order it. The one from GSF that went on after was in stock, and a third of the price, and came with the o-ring which the vw didn't.


But that's my only experience with vw flanges so far......
