    Hello,
    I noticed this part was leaking a while ago and now that it's getting worse I want to replace it asap.

    Can someone help with the name/number of the part, how much it its likely to cost to replace, is it worth replacing with a genuine part and is it an easy DIY fix?

    Thanks.

    Looks like the water over run pump for the turbo. Definately worth replacing, probably an expensive item new to be honest so might worth getting one of a breaking S3 imagine it would be cheap though as not exactly a desired item.

    Only thing I would add to that write up is to drain the coolant first with the drain on the bottom of the radiator, do it with the cap of the expansion bottle and as the pump is pretty much the top of the system when you remove the pump you should lose next to no coolant.

    Just called a local breakers yard and they have one available for £40 with a three month warranty.

    ...Audi want £125 for it.

    Normally so would I Sevv but on this occasion I might give a second hand part a go depending on it's condition.
