    A3 Coolant capaicity

    HI

    Just going to be changing my radiator shortly as it is starting to leak along with a new power steering pipe which is ready to leak.
    Car is A3 TDi 1997 (manual, no air con)

    Some questions:

    1. How many litres goes into the coolant system in total? That way I know how many litres of G12 to put in and top the rest up with water.
    2. How many litres do I need for the power steering fluid?

    Thanx

    On my S3, I needed(or used shall I say) 2 bottles of G12 coolant then top it up with water.

    Better to have a higher concentrate mixture than a weaker one.
    You should be able to get away with 1 litre of pas fluid but im leaning more towards have 2 litres. may as well let the old one completely empty and refill with new one while your at it.
    Oh and dont forget to do your brake fluid as well.
