    S3 running lean...

    As title. The garage told me the vacuum hose has split. Which hose would it be specifically that is causing it to run lean? I want to order one off eBay and change it myself. Thanks

    Any of them tbh... its a bit of an open question mate..

    Typically though its the PCV ones that split... you are going to have to find out which one from the garage dude... the pipe should have a part number on it and are generally only available through dealers

    You could of course take advantage of this and do a PCV delete getting rid of most of those pipes and simplifying the whole system...

    There is a how to in the FAQs sticky on this...

    On the later AMK/BAM S3's the PCV pipes look like this...


    Can't remember off hand if the APY's are similar

    No. I did ask but he said they'd have to have it back in to tell me. Think they were trying to get me to fork out the 100 odd quid to get it done by them. Will probably go for the delete, will look into it when I get home later. Cheers guys.
