Post by Pine »

This interesting pic shows how the Fastback gets its fresh air to the engine
after it is sucked in through the side vents

That might help owners understand why it is important to keep the sealing between the wheelcavity and body panel intact.... otherwise you get road dirt and dust sucked through your cooling fan and blown over your engine and oil cooler :)

Also, important to note is the extra corrosion coating in that area. Due to obvious reasons of all rain/humidity taken in there....
