    Hi all. I hope someone can help me. I had to change the battery on my 2003, and when I did, I found that the battery compartment was about one thirds full of water. Never seen anything like it. Is there a drain hole for that area, and if so, where is it? Thanks.

    One under battery so you'll have to remove the battery tray and the other underneath the brake servo .

    You only have to move or remove the battery.Stupid places to locate them and lots remove the bungs to stop it happening again.You might be able to get to them with a long bottle brush but thats fiddly and best to get the battery out and give the area a good clean

    Yes you do, they are one way valves that prevent the depression generated in the plenum chamber from drawing fumes into the heater intake, with a petrol engine and a pre cat exhaust leak this could easily lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. The valves are part number 8D0 819 419 A and are 5.28 each.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
