    The part number will be on the hose itself and you can get from Audi. I think forge do a "upgraded" one that does not brake down so easily. It's a important pipe as that vacume is part braking system. It also causes leaks in the PCV system. Pretty common!

    I had part of that assembly go on my S3 (AMK).

    I don't think Audi sell that part on it's own. But as mentioned you can buy a silicon one from Forge.

    You will probably find that many of the hoses and tubes are on their way out.

    I got a replacement part 06A 133 789 - you can see it on top of my manifold - which includes that part you're after. It cost £62 from TPS for that.

    Help Identifying a Hose (and where to get a replacement)

    Hi ross, it's cheaper to go with the forge replacements. But as said overall you will be better off fitting a catch tank as other hoses will go

    That looks to be parts of the PCV system - as said above. That stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. Basically, it's relieving pressure inside the crank case from gas creeping past the rings. Mainly that pipe will carry air, oil and oil vapour.

    If part of the PCV, it's not a vac hose. I can't really tell from the photo - and am not that familliar with the AMK/BAM setup.
