There is no radiator cap. You add it into the coolant reservoir (the blue cap next to number 22 on Mcrow's diagram).

I never gave a damn about the meterman,...

-til I was the one who had to read the meter....

....man.

I just replaced my front and rear brakes and find that the pedal pressure returned after bleeding the brakes; HOWEVER as soon as I turned the engine on the pedal became super-soft again.

The radiator doesn't have a cap. You add coolant through the reserve tank. Its the white plastic round tank in the right rear corner of the engine compartment. Don't attempt to open the cap unless the engine is cool.

What's the best way to replace that PCV Breather Hose? Mine just blew Sunday on the way up to Mt. St. Helens visitor center. We duct-taped it back together so I could get down the mountain.

You just buy the new hose and replace the old one. It all slides together. Other than the slide pin at the breather valve on the cylinder head.

The part of the hose that needs replaced is the L-Shaped one at the top - that's what blew. I was able to purchase JUST that hose....do I need anything else to repair it myself?

Nope thats it but you should have got all the piping while your at it. It gets super brittle over time from all the oil vapours. My "L" shaped hose broke as well so i just went and bought fuel hose and used it for now. But when i went to hook it up my plastic piping just broke apart.

Gosh - too bad you didn't respond sooner! Because what you said would happen, happened. As we were putting the elbow hose on the tube, right where it attaches to the tube, broke! VERY BRITTLE! I called an Auto Parts store here in Vancouver, WA & they said they have an oil resistant hose that would work in place of that plastic tube (and it's WAY cheaper). What do you think? Attach it with a coupler & a clamp...I should be good to go??

Go nuts, thats what i did. Im not buying a 40$ plastic hose, thats ludacris. My fuel hose has help up just fine. The only problem you will run into is trying to connect it to the breather valve on the cylinder head. Leave a little bit of plastic hose at that end then connect new hose to it. You'll see what im talking about if look there.

I'm with you there. My husband called the VW dealer here and they only sell it as a KIT...the hose & the plastic tube. We will have to use coupler's to attach the pieces - but I wanted to get a second opinion!
