    Just after someone who could maybe show me an ETKA diagram of whats situated underneath the intake manifold (BMN).

    I've had a slow leak that only becomes apparent at full running temp and is leaking onto something else hot because its burning off into steam making it difficult to pinpoint where its coming from. Theres a pipe behind the oil filter housing and also the thermostat housing. Theres fluid residuals just behind the intake manifold on the engine block, it is also running down the engine block and leaking onto the floor. I'm losing about half a litre over 2-4 days depending on use so I need to get it sorted asap.

    In the picture the pipe with the "M" on it is what I initially suspected as the source of the leak but I'm not sure.

    how good are you at deciphering what part it is from the pic? Cos to me that looks like a longitudinal set up like you would find in an a4 not an a3 which is the problem im having figuring it out...
