    Intercooler hose split

    Hi I found out last weekend that the intercooler hose on my 1.9 TDI 130 AVF has split.

    The part number is 8E0145834Q which has been apparently superseded by 8E0145834AR according to Audi and it costs nearly £164 quid! Does anyone know where I can source a cheaper alternative?

    I'm pretty hacked off as I have only had the car 2 months and the garage won't cover it under warranty.

    Cheers

    I think I may have found a much cheaper option. If you look for the part no on VAGCAT with the Passat B5.5 AVF it lists a different part number (3B0145828G) The drawings on the diagrams are identical and there is no reason to suggest that this part would be different as it's the same engine and layout as the A4.

    BASIC GERMAN PRICELIST
    part number 3B0145828G
    Partnumber Title Price
    3B0145828G SCHLAUCH 62.3 Euro

    That works out at about £60. Who's going to be brave and order one?!

    I had my car up on ramps to get the oil changed and when I took the undertray off I noticed a bit of insulation tape round the hose. I took it off and there was a slight split. I don't think it's causing any symptoms with the car but things like that bug me.

    i had to change that on my 130 avf passat, the pipe had rubbed though on the fuel cooler valve, from the vw dealer it was £88 retail

    to protect it it now has an extra layer of hose and some seatbelt webbing ziptied round it!

    I thought I would update this thread as I have finally replaced the split hose. Since I first started looking for the hose, the only option was to replace it with a genuine Audi one at nearly 170 quid (the Passat version won't fit btw). I decided to hold out for over a year and I'm glad I did. A quick search on eBay with the part number produced loads of third party versions. The cheapest I found was one going for £47.90, the seller was also offering a "Make offer" on this as well. So I thought I would chance it and offer him £37.90 instead not thinking he would accept but he did!

    I fitted the hose on Saturday (20 min job) and took the car out for a spin. I think my car is now more torquey and less laggy (this would coincide with a boost leak) but that could just be a placebo effect. So in all I am chuffed to bits that a £170 part cost me less than £40. I can provide details of the eBay seller if anyone is interested.
