    Are you talking the washers as well as gaskets? Appreciate you're skint but common on! They are like pence each, ok possibly a £ or 2 but chances are you're going to be taking it all off to replace them !

    Would he have removed this to change turbo, he said its dripping and gets worse on idle.

    Don't get them from a plumbers store... get proper VAG ones from a dealer... to do it properly you will need 2 x oil feed washers and ideally you would have replaced all the coolant ones too so I think its 7 of those from memory... 2 for the banjo on the block, 3 for 'one' coolant banjo and 2 for the other coolant banjo on the turbo as there is a spacer on one (can't remember which off hand) VAG washers are aluminium

    Its a false economy not to change them due to the amount of work required to get to them... you would do well to get the oil drain gaskets too.. again these are metal and you should buy genuine ones... one for the sump and the one under the turbo...

    They are not expensive...

    Either that and/or the oil drain as both would have been undone to remove the turbo...

    Oil feed bolts to the top of turbo as does the coolant line from the front of the car... the block coolant pipe bolts to the side of the turbo facing the block...

    Oil drain is the pipe from the bottom of the turbo to the sump...

    The oil feed is on the top of the turbo so access is only really available once the manifold is off... if you have an A3 this is relatively easy, if you have an S3 then its a little more involved...

    Try this...
    k03 > k03s Turbo DIY / How to / Fitting Guide (Mk4 Golf) - uk-mkivs

    There is a lot of info there and you don't need to follow the whole thing as its for swapping a turbo but all the info is there...

    Its a pretty simple job an I can normally remove a mani/K03 in an hour or less...
