So i just did a cross country road trip. started in virginia, but had to make a stop in vermont, rhode island, and connecticut. i did the prechecks, changed the oil, yada yada yada. so i end up in san diego and look under the hood and noticed oil on the right side of the valve cover, so i order a new valve cover gasket. went to replace it. well there was a hole in the crankcase breather hose. went to remove it and replace it and the lower crankcase breather hose coming from the pvc valve also broke. went to vw and they wanted 150$ so i took some forum advice and make my own.

the hole i found

oil spill

cams

end result

lower crankcase breather hose going into the T with the pvc valve

It works for a quick fix but I couldn't roll like that

Actually, I think the whole purpose of the fix was so that he could "roll"
... doesn't look too bad, and is a whole lot more durable than the stock piece. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

you can also use aerosol brake cleaner, it works wonders and evaporates really quickly.
