    Re: 84 Rabbit

    Moved your post to the older rabbit forums.

    I have had occasions where I have punctured or Cracked the Res when re-fitting it after a MC change.
    I have had older ones break at the feeds to the grommets when prying them out for a MC change. It isn't that
    hard to do.

    If the Grommets are good, then I would replace the Res and see if that isn't the issue I have also had the caps leak on me as they became cracked.

    Finding a replacement may be tricky... as they are getting hard to come by.

    I found they are avail at ECS tuning but very pricey. The Parts yard near you or classifieds here, thesamba.com, or vwvortex may serve your quest.

    They all Start with good GROUNDS.
    Replace all of them that you can, 99 percent of flakiness will disappear.

    I am not sure about the grommets but i can see it leaking from the middle of the res. and the cheapest ive found one is $150 and thats seems a little pricey for plastic. would a 2 part epoxy work?

    Yes I think it would but you would 1 have to remove the part and clean all the fluid inside and out.
    You would need to scuff the plastic a wee bit, as well as getting a fuel or oil proof epoxy.... and that is about the price I saw.
    You might try emailing partsplaceinc.com to see if they have a source for a used one.
