    Help SOMETHING is hanging off my car!

    New to this forum, but needing some help. I have an audi 53 a3 tdi 2.0 and the other day i notice something was hanging dwn (Looking at drivers side on)

    I have what appears to be a radiator panel hanging dwn, it is on the underneath of my car just under drivers seat. There isnt one of these panels on the passageners side. I looks like it is attached to a small pipe.

    Some people say it is an air con panel so heat can escape, but the net hasn't thrown up and answer as of yet. Any ideas of what it does or a remedy to fix will be most welcome happy ne year

    Indeed its a fuel cooler. If there is a hose hanging near, than you may also loose diesel. You better secure it.
    This is the radiator, isn't it?
