Customer Question

i need to see a diagram of cooling hoses. i replaced one of my cooling hoses that ran out of my oil filter base and now i need to replace the other one along with a hose that seems to run to the heater core. It also looks like a plastic fitting broke inside of the hose. Might want to bypass the heater. 2004 VW Passat GLS Turbo

you have an 1.8L Turbo engine correct?

It may be just as expensive/ease to just fix it without a bypass ... According to whats broken of coarse.

I may need you to take pictures of whats broken so I can see, are you capable of doing so?
