Hi, I was hoping for some help with my S3 8L.
It's been suffering from hesitancy and has been stuttering on full boost, ESP light flashes on whilst it's happening. Initially I though the standard usual problems ie, MAF, coil packs. I unplugged the MAF and the problem was still happening so that ruled out a knackered MAF. I bought a new set of spark plugs with the intention of whipping the old ones out seeing if there was any remedy.
As I started to get at the Coil pack bolts I had a look at the hoses and found that one of them was almost totally split at the joint. I was hoping that someone could let me know which hoses this is. I am intent on getting some samco or forge hoses to add a but of future durability for these, but I'm not sure what hose it is exactly. I cleaned the hose and printed on it is "PA12< VW Spa"....Please see the pictures below and if anyone knows what the part number is for me to replace it I'd be extremely grateful.
For a very temporary / half fix for the problem I've ductaped as best i can and the problem seems to have been alleviated slightly but obviously I want to replace it ASAP.
