    New Sump

    I'm after a new sump. The threads on the drain plug on mine are gone. I managed to get a new sump plug to bite but really I'm not sure how much longer the threads will last. I have a new pickup to fit also so I'll do that and fit a new sump at the same time.

    Has anyone used a non genuine one like this:
    VW GOLF MK4 A3 TT BORA 1.8 T OIL SUMP PAN WITH WHOLE FOR OIL SENSOR LEVEL | eBay

    Or know a good place to get a genuine one? They're about 4 times the price from ECS :/

    Is there any point getting a baffled one? I want to do track work down the line...

    Looks similar to one I've used before, fitted fine and no leaks which is the main concern, baffles not really needed.

    All I'd suggest before actual fitting is to test fit in place to ensure its not bent or mating face is off, but really it's kinda of an item that fits or doesn't fit. It's not really a critical part providing it doesn't leak when fitted.

    Haha yeah shame I'm not back there sometimes...

    Well I need to do the old pickup swap anyway so it has to come off. I don't want to helicoil it in there incase any swarf gets in. It's fine for now but I figured the next service, I'd do the pickup and sump swap. Might just get one of those cheapy ones. I'll give Awesome a call though, cheers Seb.

    That would be handy if you're talking to him about other stuff...

    Won't need it for a while. 4-5 months odd.
