I’m in the midst of getting my car ready for a family vacation.
I have always had an issue with and oil leak from my banjo bolt located right up against the firewall on my MK IX. Today I decided to take it all apart and see what was going on. To my absolute horror, when I unscrewed it, it was filled with all of the threads from the soft aluminum head. It is completely stripped.
Short of taking the head off, is there anyway that I can get this car running until the end of summer when I would take the engine out? I am supposed to be taking the car on a holiday on Sunday. The last holiday I took with the car ended up having to be towed home and we canceled the remainder of the holiday. My pride cannot handle another incident like this! (not will my wife’s patients…)
Hoping for someone with a little bit of good news to get me through the holiday,
