Well i'm thinking the previous owner was having the 'overheating problems' that is common with the VW front panel so he had two vents made into the front panel ( pics to follow same vents as in the rear heating ) Whilst checking the fuses I noticed the one for the Electric fan was not in use ( no fuse or wiring ) I did find an empty block for some wiring not connected behind the dash so presuming he did away with the auto fan and hooked it straight up to a switch located near the handbrake ( pic to follow too ) which i am going to use permanently now after that first run ....

After a few days driving etc It hasn't overheated due to me using the manual fan this time and keeping my speed down ... noticed an oily substance all over the tailgate though , cannot work out if its coolant or engine/gear  oil etc ? further investigation required I think

Ok its an oil leak..... I cannot determine where its coming from at the moment .... So will be investigating further next week

Thinking camshaft or crankshaft seal ?

its travelling down to the drivers side and  dripping on the heatshield as well and has left a small pool of oil .... hence the tailgate being splattered with oil

anyone with any suggestions  on oil leaks feel free to discuss
