    717 rebuild question

    Getting my 717 out of a 2001 GTI rebuilt. Should I replace the O-rings on the Rotary valve cover (from RV to case and intake to RV)
    or can I reuse?

    Thanks!

    Can you reuse the O-rings? Sure you can... but it's not recommended; especially if you don't want to risk an air leak at the RV cover area. Normally, O-rings are a 1 time use because they deform to the area being sealed. If you were willing to risk it, I would set the o-ring you want to reuse on a piece of tin or metal plate and allow the elastomer to "relax" in the heat of the sun for about an hour.

    I won't guarantee that the O-ring will be as perfect as a new one, but it may work just fine for a short period of time until you can order a new one.

    That's what I thought.... Been hunting for them but not real common pieces to purchase. If I have the correct part numbers, there is one or two listings on Ebay but that is about all I could find. That is why I asked. I figured there would be more stores selling them.

    Thank you for the reply!
