    Try doing it after you've driven for 100 miles.

    Legal bit:
    ONLY JOKING!!!!! NEVER OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT, IT WILL SPRAY YOU WITH BOILING WATER!

    check inside the cap and make sure the ruber seal/ring in the middle part is sitting in its ridge and most tdi's won't make a lot of pressure anyway unless there a fault
    its just an old estate (well a 500bhp estate anyway)
