    Scuttle panel

    Hi, been reading and searching a lot on here and yesterday bought myself a B5 S4, absolutely love the thing.

    One thing I'd like to check is the drainage holes near the battery and the servo.
    Has anyone got any tips on how to remove the scuttle panel?

    I've only had a quick look as stuck in work and tbh only ever worked on golfs so this is pretty new to me and I don't want to break anything.

    Massive thanks
    RACK

    Look harder then! Its there.

    The metal hardline for the clutch goes thru the grommet as well, so if you cant see the hole, look behind the servo and follow the clutch hardline down.

    Flexible curtain wires work wonders in drain holes - about 1m long !!
