    s3 8l turbo oil pipes diagram

    hi all.
    has anyone got a parts diagram for a 1999 apy engined s3.
    i started the car this morning with the bonnet open, there was smoke coming from the turbo area. i think there is oil getting onto the turbo/manifold some how.
    i did have a quick look. but had no mirror available to look closely.
    any ideas?

    thanks.

    It will be leaking from the cam cover gasket... they all do it... new cam cover gasket set required... just under 20 quid... also the 1/2 moon seal thats under the cam chain tensioner... these shrink and go hard and oil leaks from there too... there will most likely be oil all down the side and back of the head...
