    For that pipe I would go to audi, someone has damaged that imho, unusual to just split by itself.

    Then they are very wise & sensible, get them to swap it out, they should be able to source from audi or TPS.

    Is this the water pipe coming from the coolant/radiator water container?

    Exactly the same pipe that got damaged on mine somehow. My local indie fixed mine by cutting it and fitting a new bit in the middle where the leak was and two clips on either side. It's been perfect since. Ill take a picture not normally one to cut corners but its a much easier and cheaper fix

    I take it back Enzo! I had a look to take a pic this morning and its leaking coolant! Lol not a lot but wet around the joins! Not a good cheap fix! If you find out what the part number is for the hose let me know!

    This was an expensive little job! This must be the hardest pipe to get to, my vag mechanic had to move the turbo forward to get to it! 4 hours labour ouch :-(
