I will show you step by step how to install a catch can for most MQB VW and Audi cars. Also the Golf R catch can installation requires relocating the top of the washer fluid bottle. We will also be testing how much this catch can ACTUALLY works to keep carbon off the intake valves. #humblemechanic #golfR #VW #MQB
