      Thanks for this PSU!! Guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
      I can try and get a pic of it up today... It's a rubber plug yes, like I said 1 1/16" by 7/8"... It isn't a cap, it's an actual tapered plug...

Start in one area of your engine bay, work there, then once you're done in that area and satisfied move onto another area...
      can you post a picture of your bay?

      Now is removing that little black plate/bracket that connects the motor mount to the side wall ok? I can see it for a show car, but if you do any type of performance driving, that bracket gives full side to side support. Some insight on this because if all is good I may remove it

      This is the pic you want to pay attention to for that... It's the black bracket holding these two wires in place basically... As far as side to side support, big negative... It does nothing like that...

      No, I'm talking about the bracket that goes inside the circle:


      I may be wrong about its function, but I have a feeling even my aftermarket bsh mount came with one for a reason. Im going to polish mine anyways, and use zinc bolts.

      Oh my bad, LOL! Wrong mount... I haven't really noticed any problems, but I just removed mine... Best bet is to ask PSU about that, he's had his out for longer than I have... May just have to get the BSH mount if it does make a difference More money to spend

      True.... I was thinking that since the bushings slip over a post and a bolt goes through that you would want that bracket on for support, but maybe not. I may just be thinking into it too hard! lol To each his own

      Got my windshield neck delete done yesterday, thanks for the cap!


      Also used some of your tips to clean my engine bay further, although I have a 2.0T this is very helpful for mkV's. Working on relocating the harness from the coolant expansion tank now, and perhaps instead of swapping coolant tanks I am going to be very carefull with a dremel and take those brackets off the tank!

      I had thought about doing that before when I was staring in to the bay. I felt better spending a little bit of money on the mk4 tank instead of maiming my stock one.

      How do you take off the funnel for the window washer fluid, put a plug in there without all the washer fluid pouring out?

      That bracket has nothing to do with rigidity or support. It is simply there to hold the washer bottle neck in place.

      You are fine to remove it.

      Hope this helps.

      Spray your windshield until you get rid of all the washer fluid in the neck and then pull it off.

      Hope this helps.

      Ya I asked a local vw shop when we were on the phone. I was told if you track the car and are using the oem motor mount you should have that bracket in place, but if you have a aftermarket mount it is un needed as they are multiple times stiffer than oem. So if you dont track the car doing 1g+ turns we are fine without it I removed mines Thank you for the confirmation

      Thanks, but how do you remove it and still keep fluid in it? Or basically are you deleting this function?

      No worries.

      I was the same way when I did mine.

      I know I PM'd xandypx at least five times.

      It wasn't until I got my flashlight out and walked out to my driveway that it all came to me.

      I put mine back in. With the catch can in that location I dont feel like undoing all the plumbing, removing that just to fill it up, sooo Ive decided to bling it up! Since the catchcan gets up to about 160* Im going to wrinkle coat the neck, wrap it with some dei thermo wrap, and I ordered a polished jcap
