Hi all, My mk2 Saloon has been off the road for a couple of years now since the carb flange failed. The fella that owned the car before me took off the original bin lid air filter and put on a tall and heavy K&N one without fastening it down in any way. I don't know how long it was on there before my ownership but it has torn the rubber that sits between the carb and the inlet manifold and it is no longer airtight enough for the carb to work. It's a non-runner. I've tried to fix the existing part with some PU but it's still not airtight. I know the part I need is 052 129 765 B but I've been told that they stopped making them in 2007 and can't find any stock anywhere. I really don't want to go as far as an engine swap, and mine being the 1050cc engine introduces complications. Does anyone know of a clever workaround or where I might be able to get my hands on that precious part? I'm really quite stuck and just want the car back on the road! Thanks, Brad
