    Anyone know of any other vws with a bracket like this in Australia?

    It's a factory boost pipe between the intercooler and manifold with a bracket fixed to the top to hold the fuel lines, wiring and p/s line.

    Did some googling, Polo 9n3 looks different, mk5 TDI may be usable, Skoda looks to be one piece but I could cut the pipe off I guess
    Would love to get the bracket only and fix it to my aftermarket hard piped just to tidy things up. I feel this one is just stuck on but I'm hesitant to force in incase I break the factory pipe.

    First time in the daylight since the start of August.
    Haven't really needed to drive during covid and the handful of times I have I've taken the CC

    Gave it a hose and got some charge on the battery.

    Have been slowly pulling the interior apart in preparation to do the headliner. I also need to replace the aerial base (glue as gasket, Whyyyyyyyy??), fix atleast one of the sunroof drains, run the keyless remote aerial, and maybe the Sat Nav aerial instead of the standard aerial mentioned above.

    Somehow this turned into realigning the hatch (not a fun task in your own). Seems between panel repairs and baby seat harness points being fitted everything was a bit of a mess.
    Boot seems to have stopped leaking and looks a much closer fit to pictures online so that's a positive.

    The vw badge has never really say flush so pulled that off... It's had a half baked repair to glue the Chrome back on and then been painted around.
    Bit of a mix using a spare I had and it's back on.
    Next will be to replace the number plate nurserts (been drilled out...), repair the interior trim tabs, new tail light, tail light gaskets and washers. Check alignment again.

    Not much happening.
    Cleared the two rear sunroof drains and checked for leaks. One was slow and the other blocked so worth the effort.

    Reinstalled with the nipples as I figure if it's taken 18 years to get that bad it won't hurt having them

    All 4 now drain, the front drivers is draining to the outside of the car but not from where it should be...

    Found plenty more dirt and filth.
    Car smells and feels "fresher" inside
    Repaired/replaced a heap of mounting points and clips on the interior trim. So fingers crossed less rattles

    Finally allowed to take it for a decent drive, seems the boost leak I fixed made a decent difference. Suspect there is another on the lower part of the car so will need to get it in the air.
