Where can you find the radiator cap in a volkswagon bora v5


Janet, top up your coolant in the coolant reservoir/expansion tank it is the rounded bottle closer to the shock tower.. Remove Blue or Black cap when engine cold and top up, run engine till warm and recheck after cool and top up again if necessary. Make sure to have leak repaired sooner then later to prevent future costly repair.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hi, my VW Golf (2001) is losing coolant through the overflow on the expansion tank? is this a blown head gasket or a faulty cap? Thanks.


VW have a big problem with their plastic water pump so I would first make sure if the radiator fan is working, the thermostat is in good order and radiator cap is good if all these things are in order and if the vehicle still heats up then look into the head gasket issue.

it may be due to a bad fual pump open the little door to the gas cap and put your ear up to the tank and have someone turn the ignition on and see if you hear the pump, if nothing it may be in your pump.

The guide tube for the release cable has crumbled and loosing tension for the cable. Only way is pry it open using a spatula covered in some kind of tape so it won't ruin your paint.

Vw 1999 passat


Hi

If my memory serves me right, the solenoid which pulls the cable to open the gas cap door is in the trunk on the side wall. Just gain access to it and then operate the plunger by hand. If you have one of those net storage bins fitted then you may need to remove that first as it could be behind it.

If you want to diagnose the problem, you need a volt meter to trace if, and where the voltage is missing.

Very best regards
