    Yes, apply a little pressure and you hear the glue pop and off it comes. I plugged the hole with a cloth mine you in case it did break

    Which method did you choose and how easy did it come off? Mine really annoys me, but I've also read of some mishaps whilst removing it.

    Warmed the engine up and applied a load of pressure to it and tapped it with a hammer a few times. Was about to give up and then I heard a pop and off it came.

    Said alot of swear words and shouted very loud at the bloody thing......

    Front passenger side caliper stuck on whilst on the way home from work.

    My head is slowly being turned away from the vag brand and turning towards a fn2 type r

    I really liked my EP3 hence my username on here registered before I got the Cupra-R. EP3 is better than the FN2 as the EP3 has independant rear suspension the FN2 doesn't and is heavier. Dont lose faith with VAG though.

    The ep3 is a better car imo but I find them a little raw, I like my creature comforts so the fn2 would be easier to live with on a daily basis.

    I am just a little worried as I have heard from a few sources that vag cars can become money pits very quickly and in particular the mk5 golf platform.

    I think that's true of any car when it gets to a certain age. I've stayed well ahead of the maintenance and even started doing 100k maintenance items on my 50k Cupra. Then got under it the other day to find where a bolt had come from to be greeted by an oil covered exhaust manifold. Just one of those things... back to the garage to stretch my wallet that little bit wider.You get your caliper sorted in the end btw?

    Dropped the car off at the garage this morning. Luckily I had already purchased a pair of front calipers when I purchased the rear ones the other month. The front passenger side I noticed was pinching ever so slightly a couple of days ago but yesterday it decided to lock on.

    Picked up a set of discs and pads from ecp last night.

    Oh wow. If it's any consolation, it gives me hope there's higher mileage MK1s n MK2s out there. I need this car to last me another 10 years and 50k+ miles so I can pay back all I've spent on it!

    Was fitting my VIS internals, spent hours doing it carefully, put my fuel pump back together, primed the fuel pump... and fuel sprayed all over my engine bay. Turns out I dropped 2 washers somewhere. Replaced them with the rubber washers and it seems all good (for now)!

    Ready for stage 2+ now

    Today I smelled a oil burning smell in the car and the revs are dancing around with the foot of the gas. So I ordered a new PCV valve and gasket.
