The new search engine sucks elephant ballz and I remember there used to be a thread that showed a very simple way to remove it, but of course now that I need it, its nowhere to be found. I already posted a thread on vwdiesel.net and the best response was to remove the whole fuel filler neck and id rather not have to do that.

soooooo.....

Whats the easiest way to remove the restrictor?

latest pic of my engine bay thats actually on the net. its all done now and rollin

I have no idea what it looks like but is it just something pressed into place?

Slidehammer to yank it out?:confused:

Look inside the filler hole, there is a rivot.
The easiest way is to chisel the rivot out.

The whole area will break free,
I think I took some snippers to it,
to fit it out the hole.



You can see the rivot hole in the restrictor.
