Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Rules for cleanliness

When working on the fuel supply and injection system, observe the following “5 rules” for cleanliness:
Thoroughly clean all unions and surrounding areas before disconnecting.
Place removed parts on a clean surface and cover. Use only lint-free cloths.
Carefully cover opened components or seal if repairs cannot be carried out immediately.
Install clean components only. Do not remove replacement parts from packing until immediately before installing. Do not use parts that have not been stored in their packing (e.g. in tool boxes etc.).
When the system is open: Do not work with compressed air. Do not move vehicle.
Make sure that no fuel gets onto the fuel hoses. Should this occur, the fuel hoses must be cleaned immediately.
Protect detached electrical connections against dirt and moisture and only connect when they are dry.

Foreign objects in engine

To prevent the ingress of foreign bodies during work on the engine, seal open channels of the intake section and exhaust section with suitable bungs, for example from the engine bung set -VAS 6122-.
