    Oil leak from turbo oil feed. what gasket?

    as said i have a slight oil leak coming from the turbo oil feed.
    previous owner fitted a new sump so im guessing its from then.

    heres a pic:


    do i use a paste gasket or is there a special gasket for it?
    if so, can i get a link to it?

    im gonna do a full service when i sort this out, may aswell.
    thanks

    Ofcourse its the return pipe, how do you expect oil sat in the sump to magically pump itself uphill into the turbo?

    As above, goto the dealer and buy the proper gasket. Its about 2 quid, and you'll be able to get one from any Audi, VW, Seat or Skoda dealer.

    058145757A is the part number you need.
