In Topic: Hole In Engine Block Spraying Coolant On Mk5

Also, he said we were lucky because it's one of 6 (IIRC), and the easiest one to get to. The others require much more dismantling and a few more man hours.

Got the old core plug out too, amazing how much it had corroded on one side. Make sure you refresh your antifreeze/coolant regularly!!

Thanks everybody. Took it along with the knowledge that it was the core plug. I was charged 40 to replace it, refill with anti-freeze and get rid of the airlocks. The last but took a while but it wasn't as disastrous as I first thought when I saw steam pouring up through the bonnet!

Thanks again for all your suggestions. Super!
