    Default 505 GTI Expansion tank cap

    The coolant expansion tank cap on my 505 GTI has gone missing. Some idiot must have forgotten to screw it back on
    The motor seems to be running at normal temperature - is there any risk in running it without the cap until I find a replacement?
    Anyone got one lying around?
    Cheers,

    Hi Thom, I lost mine once and Pugwreck sent me a replacement. I forget exactly what Hayden said but I had put a temporary make-do cap on from a disused plastic bottle and apparently it wasn't a wise thing to do as I think the real one works like a radiator cap. I think it is better to drive with none but hopefully someone will be able to help you out with a replacement ASAP and/or more knowledge.

    I have one here that you're welcome to but it needs a sealing washer. If you PM your phone number I'll give you a call about dropping it off as I often pass through/near Mullum.
