So after buying another car (528i) and getting into kart racing I havent had the cash to spend on the golf's
But here's a little update. Better pics to come on weekend.

When changing oil I noticed low water level.

Quick look around and found out why.

Suspected seal. Can anyone tell me what it could be or a part number please?


Iv also pulled the front arches more and dropped it another 10mm at the front. And I put 5mm tpr spacers on the back for a bit of poke.

More to follow on boot build  :smiley:

Don't know. I haven't took it apart to look. Was hoping just a seal.  :undecided:

Feel its time for a change,the mk3 is falling to bits.
It needs sills welding on both sides and other little bits.
I need to sort this fookin running issue out first.

Reference the coolant leak, the flange is not that expensive from VW.
