    I assume the tap is screwed in and locked off ok? where is the leak coming from exactly?

    In answer to your question, this part is clipped onto the radiator and is available from an Audi dealer... part number should be embossed on the part

    Possibly.. I doubt the main part is expensive... stuff like that normally isn't as expensive as you think... never taken one apart so no idea it it can be replaced... doubt Audi would list the o-ring for it anyway so you would have to take it apart to find out and risk further damage.. then you will need to find an o-ring the right size...

    I'd get a price from a dealer first dude then decide
