Once you pull the core out just connect the two outlets with a rubber hose.

You are much better off plugging both hoses. By connecting them together you are sending hot water straight from the head back to the waterpump, which could lead to overheating.

VW had a recall on MK2 heater cores. Run your VIN through the dealer, and you might get lucky. If it's never been done before, they'll replace it for free. It's worth a shot.

thanks a ton volks...much appreciated.
i am going to look into the vin num...as well as the possibility of the plugging of both hoses...got the bypass done, by the way it is set up it can be plugged easily, if thought better that its fluid cycle should not be re routed but returned through blocking...

thanks again and have a great day, you rock
