    Coolant escaping - 1.8T 190

    Hi.

    I've been loosing a bit of coolant recently. Not loads, but enough to get it sorted.

    Temp stays dead on 90 as it should, and I had a new metal pump a couple of years ago. There's no water in the oil and there's no oil in the water.

    I had a look to see if I could spot where it's getting out and found this



    which is located here



    And I think that looks suspicious.

    My questions are - do you agree? And what is that bit called?



    Thanks!

    Yep thats suspicious, you can see where the G12 coolant has chrystalised to try and prevent the leak.
    I have no idea what the part is called but hoses perish with age so could have split slightly at the end, probably best replacing it.

    Cheers - I'm guessing the number 068 121 101 A on the lower hose is a part number?

    Hard to tell which hose is to blame since it's oozing out of the coupling though...
