    Towing Eye

    Could anyone help me with getting the part number for the towing eye for a 1999 S3 please? (turns out the towing eye is missing from my car)

    I had a look at the catalogue for the JACK/TOOLSand there is no part number for the towing eye???

    So, I took a look at the FRONT BUMPERand I see the following...
    chrome
    / 17 8L0807441




    covering / towing eye
    right / TURBO
    8L0807441 3FZ


    satin black
    / 17A 8L0807441A
    Is 8L0807441 3FZ the part number I want, or 8L0807441A?

    Any help greatly appreciated, currently unable to tow my car

    Thanks for that. Where did you get that number from?

    I did a search on http://www.vagcat.com/find/?art=4B0805616A and that part is only showing up for the facelift models i.e. 2001 onwards.

    Are you sure that part number definitely fits a 1999 S3?

    Yeah, I hope not. I rang up the Audi parts department and they couldn't see the part number. So I'll use the one you gave me. Thanks for that.
