    Can anyone tell me what this part is?

    Can anyone tell me what this part of the coolent system is so I can source the gasket/oring to fix the coolent leak, its the housing that is bolted to the engine with 2 10mm bolts and has a sensor within it

    Car is an A3 8L 1.8 non turbo 1998 Sreg





    I thought it was the themostat housing but i think that may be near the dipstick

    Try a vw dealer if they are closer, normally cheaper too.
