      I think you have the right idea here. For instance, a scenario like this would completely route the PCV gasses to the catch can AND allow vacuum to be present on the system at all times:

      The only thing I'm not understanding is, what did you do with the rear PCV? Block it off or leave it connected?

      The front PCV that goes to the intake manifold does work under vacuum, as you have...

      :thumbup: I hope they get you back up and running soon.

      I would still keep an eye out on the oil leak after they replace the DV. That oil feeder line is naturally pressurized by the rest of the...

      Actually, that oil is probably from your oil feeder line to the turbo. My GTI had a pinhole in the line and it had to be replaced, it was also right around 3,xxx miles if I recall. Several other MK6...

      Most of the oils on the VW Approved list are Euro flavor oils. They will be harder to find here and in the majority of cases, you will need to mail-order those oils if you want to use them.

      Just curious, how many miles did you get out of your rear pads?

      I'm just curious, is this sandwich adapter for some kind of oil pressure sender? Also, the video that you are referencing is for the old 2.0FSI engine. The engine in your 2012 Beetle is the 2.0TSI,...

      I run one as well. While you are in replacing the filter be sure to remove the plastic grate at the bottom of the airbox too. I noticed a nice increase in throttle response with the AFE filter, I...

      Don't be alarmed if your oil looks very dark after using it. In my experience, the additive almost turned the oil a dark green color for the duration of the oil change interval. I ran it a full 5000...

      pipo, what you're reading is a post from AEHaas. He is quite the champion of using thin oils and also tends to back them up with UOAs. He's posted UOAs of several of his high end cars running very...

      Just curious, from the engine bay pic it looks like the rear PCV hose is still connected? Does that also go to the ground or is that still plugged into the intake tube?

      Rather than bash you for making some assumptions, I'll try to add what I know about these two specifications.

      GL4 and GL5 are used interchangeably on most gear oils, the majority of 75w90 gear...
