    Hi,

    I've got a slight leak on the breather hose as you can see on the picture.
    Has anyone changed theirs for a better quality one (silicone)? if so, where did you get it from?

    any help appreciated, cheers.

    I had a similar issue on my 130 1.9TDi - I believe my pipe was the "Charge pipe.."

    Goes into the back of the block and if you trace it back, it's all connected to the intercooler in the n/s front bumper.

    I contacted Audi, gave them a rough description of the item over the phone, and, was able to order it in to my local depot (turned out to be VW Heron..). Was a thirty minute job for me to fit it, but, all seems well so far. Was ~£18 IIRC.

    Yeah J7USS i'd definitely get a new one they are awful, its only got a small hole in but I could feel some power loss. I've just taped it up for now for a temp fix and could feel the difference straight away.

    I was speaking to an Audi specialist I use and he said that audi do a better quality hose now, part number is 06B 103 221A - just need to order one now. Looks easy to fit or is it? :unsure:

    Who's PJM??

    Scouse - Have you changed your pipe yet?


    I changed mine today and I was shocked how it "fell" off. I pulled it to get to one one of the clips and its snapped away...looked like a Liquorish:yum:.
    ...then the amount of Gunk inside the pipes and the actual blob of rubber I pulled off was shocking....looked like Caviar:puke2:

    Alright J7USS.

    Liquorish haha did you have a bite :)

    Yeah I changed mine today, wasn't to bad fitting it those throw away clamps can be abit of a pain to get at though.

    The new part does feel better quality, and the car is running nice now.

    I know what you mean about the Caviar :ohmy:

    Just got to change my brake bulb now, at least it's not as bad as changing the front ones though which I had to change the other day. Why does everything go wrong in the winter :(

    haha yeah I was tempted to have a bite :)

    Yours looked nothing compared to mine, bit worried now!!
    Defo better quality new pipe though, feels alot tougher dont it. Had a little fight getting it on but few knuckle scrapes it went on.

    Not really had a chance to drive it today - feeling a little delicate from lastnights Brandy :blush:
