Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf 1.6

How do I fix an exhaust leak in my 2005 VW GTI Turbo?

My mechanic told me that there is a leak in my exhaust pipe, that it's not threatening the functionality of the car, but is adding to the noise and inefficiency of the car. How important is it to fix this, and can I do it myself? If so, how?

Easy: buy or borrow a thermal camera. Start the car, point the camera at the suspect area. the exhaust leak will be obvious. More difficult: check for obvious holes or cracks or loud noise in exhaust system. Easiest of all: take car to a muffler shop, they will shoot you an estimate, maybe for free.

Intercooler leak


Hi, the only real way forward is to get the fault codes read from the on-board diagnostic system. In the meantime, you could check for clogged /loose / fallen off vacuum pipes and splits in the intercooler pipework.

Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

Cheers, D.
