      Its really quite easy... If you have a dremel even easier. Mine was on the fritz so I just used a hack saw blade, file/rasp and sand paper. Its a 20 minute job with a dremel I bet.

      Any way you lay the blade flat and go to town be careful not to go into the manifold. The nipples have little stand offs that are ready to cut. Once you get those of you sand smooth...
      BUT it ruins the finish of the plastic so I used some flat black paint and sprayed it only on those parts its a very nice match but not perfect. I'm going to try a bumper texture paint I used krylon fusion plastic paint

      But the real question is how? Because it runs off the serp belt and if it goes the entire set up won't turn your water pump or alt... Right? Or am I not thinking correctly

      When the pump is removed you replace the belt with a non A/C belt.
      I think that makes sense.

      But the crank drive belt, drives the ac pulley. Then the serpentine belt is driven by the ac... The crank is stepped out, the pulley assembly is not flush with the crank pulley. So you'd have nothing there.

      I know there are two belt options for the 2.5... I am thinking the belt for NONE A/C would be 07K-145-933-C which is 17.8 x 925mm

      The serp belt for A/C should be 07K-145-933-E which is 17.8 x 1063mm

      Im trying to figure this out for sure...but there not giving any codes for with or without A/C

      The car comes standard with AC. I doubt you'll find something for without AC.

      ok.. i have been looking online for a smaller bottle, so i can relocate it... not really looking to delete it.

      the plans are to relocate the coolant. Then, i'd put the fuses on the glove box, and ta da!

      http://www.golfmkv.com/forums/showthread.php?t=146632

      at last, i'd re take a look at Melissa's bay and re-produce it, to some extent... hopefully, it will be better!

      Her bay was clean! But honestly I also need to wrench in my car. The turbo kit takes up a lot of room now anyway. So its kinda hard to go that far!

      no it wasn't. it was just the 1st clean bay. not smooth, body work was bad, air ride bolts were hack. wiring was the worse ever. not nice at all.

      Most people were in awe back when they say her bay... Which is why many things were overlooked.

      And her wiring was said to be "legendary" (bad) cause she had multiple lights, and then 2nd owner wasn't trully able to fix it... So he then sold it.

      If and when I do what I want to do, I'll take my time with the wiring. One of this weeks I'll start measuring wires in order to do mine... I may even buy a cable labeling printer

      Proof positive that done first never out weighs done RIGHT! its neat to see the potential but it really needs to be done perfectly to be worth the hassle
