2006 TT - Total frustration with cooling system

Recommended Posts

I have to say that I am about done with this car. I have replaced the main coolant pipes, I have replaced the water pump and the coolant reservoir and yesterday it dumped all of my coolant AGAIN, It is running fast from somewhere on the drivers side ner but not at the rear of the car. I can feel at least one of the T pipes and it is dry so what do I look at next? Unfortunately, I cannot find the source of this fast leak with a flashlight, mirror or even a borescope. Is my car likely to be fitted with an extra electric pump and will removing the wheel arch liner help me locate the problem?

All assistance greatfully received - I am at least 50 miles from a Porsche dealership......

Oh well - the infamous T piece it is. Leaking like a fawcet....After 2 hours of attempts, I have not yet managed to remove any of the clamps with the remote tool so it is off with the manifold. Am I better off using a dremel to cut off the bands to take off the old "T" and replacing with new? All experience of doing this job gratefull received
