Hi guys,

My mk5 has been leaking a little coolant for over a year and I decided to fix the problem.
It turned out to be the gasket between the head and the plastic thetmostat housing. I'm tempted to use silastic instead as I can see the problem happening again years from now because the gasket is like a moulded o-ring in a groove and loses compression over time, since the plastic housing is in direct contact with the head and can't be tightened any more.
Has anyone had the same issue?
