    A3 Vacuum pipe

    A3 1.8T. Have a massive split in the pipe that runs from underneath the inlet manifold, half way along and connects to the one way valve above the oil filter.

    Any one know where I can get a replacement?

    Thanks

    I think all these vacuum pipes are dealer only, unless you replace it with a suitable piece of silicon pipe.

    It maybe worth considering fitting an oil catch can and getting rid of your whole PCV system (which that hose you mention is part of), because it quite likely the rest of the hoses are in a similar condition.
    Failing that go to the dealers to get a replacement hose
