Update:

2006 Jetta BRM

I did the original JB weld(High temp) fix in October 2016 with about 226K km on the clock.
For the past few weeks I began noticing exhaust smell in the cabin idling at stop lights. Lets say Sept 2017 and 260K km...

My $5 EGR fix lasted about 11 months and 34K km or about 21,000 miles....

Car is going back up in the air, and I'll be redoing it as well as tackling a couple other things over the next couple evenings....

The JB weld high heat had failed enough to cause exhaust smell in the cabin at stoplights. As you can see in the above picture it was mostly intact.

I used a small drill bit (about 1/8") to drill into the remaining material and then broke it out with an awl.

I was able to use about a 1" section of the JB weld bought in 2016 to redo the egr bushing...

Note to self for next time ... probably only need to cut off 0.75" of JB weld High Heat putty. Still had lots I didn't use this time.

Space blanket that was around the vacuum actuator is mostly gone. I didn't decide to put the remnants of it back on....

I'm assuming the cooling system can keep up? Thanks

Any answer on this? Which position is to direct flow through the cooler and not bypass it. I need full heat to the coolant in Canada.

FYI, my fix dated July 2015 and in this thread is still holding strong last I looked at it and have noticed no ill effects. Not sure of current milage but I'd guess at least 40K.

Do you know which position the flap needs to be in to go through the coolant side of the cooler?

.
I think what happened was that the steel wool caught most of the larger exhaust particles that would have leaked otherwise, and slowly but steadily these built up to a solid mass, that fully stopped the leak. So, what you've have in there is a seal made of steel wool and carbon soot, that's now filling all the crevices perfectly, not allowing anything to exit anymore. Just my two cents.

FYI, the last fix I implemented that is documented in this thread lasted until I sold the car at 144K. It seemed to work fine. :-)
