Shouldn't need to remove your engine cover, it's about 20cm down from your coilpack on the right hand side of the engine.

Thanks, I don't get to see the car again until tomorrow.

I've uploaded a pic (wrong side of the engine, allI have though)

If someone could kindly highlight thr rough area I should be looking.

Just trying to prepare for when I get to see the car.

Take the engine cover off. Follow the top hose on the rad(Behind where the GTI badge is on the grill back to the engine, where the hose attatches to the engine, you will see the sensor.

Any tips on how to remove it, not overly sure how the clip works and dont want to break it...

I'll upload a pic in a minute to make sure I have the right thing.

Thanks.

There is a U shaped piece of plastic that slots down and secures the sensor in. Pull this up, than the sensor out.

Yup, top it up when you are finished, its self bleeding. Hope the coolant wasnt hot when you covered yourself in it! :lol:

Car hadnt moved for 36 hours, fortunately :)

If it'd have been hot, I'd of dropped more than the clip holding it in place :P

I assume I remove, place seal on new one, insert, lock in place, top up anti freeze, job done?
