I did a search and thought this thread was particularly helpful, but im not sure if its exactly what my problem is.
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=642572
i have been steadily losing coolant, except mine seemed to be leaking from the lower radiator hose on the end closest to the radiator. I was about to replace it but when i was looking under there and saw that the hose i thought had a crack in it and was the cause of my problems was infact fine.

So is my problem the same as the one listed there ? Also i was under my car trying to find the part the needed to be replaced that was in that thread, and i couldnt find it. Does anyone happen to have a pic to point me in the right direction ?
I was in a rush too, it just snowed and my garage floor was all wet and i didnt want to lie there more than i had too.
Thanks,
Chad

well, its more or less all wet. It looks like its coming from the bottom of the passenger side of the radiator. or somewhere in that general area. Its not the coolant flange as far as i can tell. And i had a run in with a 2 foot high light in my freinds driveway today and now have a dented drivers side door panel.

Re: coolant leak problem, please help (chadalac)

i have a leak from the pass side of the rad
turns out the coolant couldn't withstand the minus 40 C temperature and froze over alittle
lets just say the rad kinda burst near the hose.
Not fun to replace.

yea, im worried about the same thing. everything on the passenger side is wet with coolant, waterpump is, radiator is, and everything in between.
