Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
The flange joining the carburettor to the manifold is completely perished and i can move the carb around by hand easily yet luckly the car still runs well as the carb is held in place just by all the hoses etc. I removed the carb but I cannot see how to get the black plastic air duct intake from the top of the carb. Any ideas please ?
Also I cannot see how to remove the flange from the carburettor. I see the ends of 4 little studs but cannot see how i might get these out . Any ideas please ?
I have looked on the internet but cannot see my particular carburettor or flange type . I see other flanges for VW's but not any that look like mine. The car is a 1800 cc Golf ( UK L Reg ) which is a 1993 .
Hi ... megadeth_600 . YOU WERE RIGHT . THANK YOU. Unbelievably , those pop outs look clear on the photo but in real life they are hardly noticeable. The had never been removed before so they were in perfect condition and blended really well with the other plastic , so much so they just looked like mouldings rather than pop-outs. I had asked all over the place , mechanics , car spares shops , people with other VW's and not one person knew how to get the air intake off . Even the Haynes manual ( a total waste of time as far as the Golf CL is concerned ) which says on the front it covers the CL model doesnt tell you . Like it shows you a photo of mans hand getting hold of the air intake and under that photo the caption says " removing the air intake " . Hahahaha , well thats helpful. Anyway , now we can progress and get on with replacing the INJECTOR FLANGE GASKET , thank you so much Megadeth_600 . You are the Daddy , big cheese , main man , top dog.
