Bad Water Leak

    I'm new to the forum so Hello everyone.

    I got a bad water leak on my Diesel A3, ASZ.
    Water light came on driving back from work, so I stopped and filled the header tank with water, by the time I got back home, about 5 minute drive is was empty again.

    The water is coming out above the gearbox and dripping onto in, I can't see exactly where it is coming from. It doesn't look like the water temp sensor (although I'm not 100%), or the hose running above that, seems to be something behind that.
    Can anyone think of where it could be coming from?

    Cheers

    I suspect it is the CTS tbh... have seen them leak from there before... either that or its the seal for that whole plastic unit where it attaches to the head... not much else it can leak from there...

    Update:

    Turned out to be the seal between the plastic casing(that the cts plugs into) and the head, cost £2 and an about an hour in total to replace.
