Volkswagen Golf... | Answered 17 hours ago

you have a leak going through a welded area. The factory uses a seam sealer upon building these cars. So to fix this when the entire car is assembled it quite difficult to do. First you have to locate the nature of your leak. If you can see where it is coming from, great. If not you will need to remove many articles from your car such as the carpet and backing which will have to be removed for proper cleaning from stagnat water sitting in place for sometime now. Any sound board padding going up behind your dash up through the firewall. When all that is removed you can see alot of sheet metal. Inspect all welded seams for traces of rust. That will be an earmark for a leak. Shine a flashlight as far as you can see looking for rust scales throughout.If you have to mix Arm & Hammer baking soda with water 50/50 mix and pour throughout the outside screen into the firewall and watch for that milky film seep into the interior. The soda will ellimanate odors as well for your car. I know this is a tough job which no mechcanic likes to tackle but it does happen to all of us at one point in our lives
Hope you find the leak and get it resealed with a 3M resealing product too
Good luck

bank 2 sensor 1 is passanger side and first sensor on the exhaust. i dont know exactly where it is but from the exhaust manifold follow it down until there is a sensor drilled into your exhaust that is your oxygen sensor. then you go rent a tool specially made just for pulling that part out. Or you can take a wrench and try to pull it first but make sure your engine is warm so it is easier to remove. Once the exhaust cools it is so much harder to remove. If you cant get it with the wrench make sure to rent the tool from like autozone. sometimes there easy sometimes a little difficult. good luck also if it comes out easy id say its about a 5-7 minute job.

Normally you would use a scanner - you might be able to use a meter to measure the resistance in the sensor, I think it should be near zero when the throttle plate is closed.
