Thermostat Replacement and Cooling System Upgrades ~ R32 Restoration

Published on March 28, 2018 under MK4 R32 Rehab

Thermostat Replacement and Cooling System Upgrades for a 2004 VW R32. This thermostat replacement will cover all 24v VR6 engines. This will also cover thermostat housing replacement and coolant transfer pipe or CRACK PIPE. This thermostat was failing, but some how there was not a thermostat housing leak. This is an extremely common repair on many different Volkswagens. The repair seems to come in two forms, repairing a coolant leak, or fixing a check engine light. A VW with a check engine light? Surely you must be kidding! ūüėČ

This DIY is pretty straight froward and requires only some basic hand tools. I have listed some tools below if you find you are missing anything. Be sure to follow the rest of the R32 restoration and rehab.
