    Help with buying T Piece

    Hi, I've snapped a T-piece from the vacuum system which sits on the top of the rocker cover. It has two outputs of approx 6mm, one of which goes to a three way non return valve and one of 3mm which goes under the inlet manifold. Audi say this isn't available separately and were trying to sell me a load of vacuum pipes for 80 which included the T piece.

    My question is, does anyone know anywhere that I could buy something similar from? I've had a quick look but can only find T-pieces where all the connections are the same size...

    Thanks :-)

    yup another for the N249 bypass....when i wanted one of these i searched high and low, ended up using a wiper washer T piece then a reduced sized extension piece which i had to glue into one end......you will never find a T piece with a reduced nib on
