|Yes, I know the flapper mod has been done to death, perhaps the MkV perspective will put a new spin on it. I've done a lot of trawling and found very little on the MkV flapper - I'm guessing because they are yet to land in the U.S.?
From what I have read the consensus is that ALL 3.2s have the diverter valve. After reading the various MkIV R32 Flapper threads I stuck my head under the car to discover that on the MkV it is not where it is under the MkIV, nor does it look the same.
Apparently the 3.2 TT's flapper is located in a different location to the MkIVs too.
I have taken some pics and seek the assistance of The Vortex Elders before I wield a spanner in anger.
Clip above is as a point of reference.
Pic above is taken from between the 2 pipes. You will note at the bottom of the pic, to the right of the 'diffuser', half of a black circular object - which I think is the diverter valve.
Closer shot, you will note that it is black plastic rather than metal like the mkIVs.
Closer shot from between the two pipes. The silver part at the top of the pic is part of the muffler.
Pic above shows how the suspected flapper is attached to one of the exhaust pipes, as well as the suspected vacuum hose?
Another close up of the flapper near the exhaust hanger.
Final pic from the right showing the hose disappearing into somewhere.
So what are everyones thoughts - is this the 'flapper' on the MkV and should it be dealt with in a manner similar to how it has been done in the MkIV?
