    Help required

    Hi guguys replaced all 4 shocks on the S3 BAM today and had a bit of a **** day to be honest! Help required as my mate pulled on something that he shouldn't. On left hand side of engine bay between the water coolant and windscreen wash bottle there is a small 8mm ish hard black pipe that connects to some sort of round plastic thing. That's my knowledge of it does anyone know what it is and what it does?
    also on the drivers side front the drive shaft has a lot of play as in it moves back/forward mabe an inch form gearbox end. Any ideas why?

    no idea what a skoosh is - does the pipe look like a garden hose ? transparent(ish) with reinforcement ?
    If so its the water feed for the pop up headlight washers. One end goes into the pump (round cylindrical thing) at the washer bottle, the other end to the pop up washers.

    No idea about the drive shaft, doesn't sound right though.

    The CV joints have in and out float in them anyway, an inch is probably about right.

    Skoosh? Some sort of round plastic thing?

    Take pictures, we'll tell you from there.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
