    Default 505 WARNING check your heater hoses!!!

    Is your 505 near 250,000??
    I had a heater hose blow out on my GTI on Sunday. Not very pleasant when you watch the needle go up then back down again because theres no water left.
    Please check your hoses, especially the one from the head behind the exhaust manifold.
    Learn from my mistake of not paying attention to the hoses condition.

    Good advice - In fact I just replaced that hose myself - it was quite hard and inflexible - suffers from the heat of the manifold most likely!
