It doesn't go in the radiator. It goes in the round clear coolant reservoir. Open hood and it should be on driver's side near windshield. It's smaller than a basketball, and bigger than a softball. White (yellowed) plastic with a round black cap.

I have a 97 jetta when I put the heat on. You could smell the fumes. What can it be.


check the coolant and see if it is low then on the passenger floor board pull the carpet back about where you feet would rest.. and see if the carpet padding is wet. and smells of a odor. then if it is wet you have a heater core leak.and in some case when you turn the heater on the windows will get fogged up

To add Antifreeze into the coolant system, you add the fluid into the overflow resevoir. The radiator on VW's does not have a rad cap and they use the overflow. Hope this helps.
