    rad drain tap!

    yesterday when i went to let the water out of my rad via the red drain bung, the bung snapped off! its just the head of it that has snapped so no water is leeking,(not been tryed under pressure yet tho) but now i need to remove the rest of it! but last time i drained the water on my dads mk4 the bung didnt come all the way out s that it could be replaced!

    so my question is how do you get it out to replace it???

    cheers kev

    Kev, if you do want a more permanant fix - then the drain plug can be replaced.... once you figure out how to remove it

    Vx PNs are: Plug = 52463060 & Washer = 52462868
    (All A/C models and non air con models with Behr rads)
