    I changed the coolant temp sensor on my S3, im not too sure about the set-up on the A3 1.8 T.
    Check out the link below this was for a TT

    If it is the same then, it's a 5 min job, be careful make sure the engine is cold and release the lid on the water coolant. I lost alot on my coolant and had to replace the coolant which is not a bad thing.

    it will either be oval like the one in Waks write up or square, just locate and unplug the wire to see what shape the socket is, most are oval.
