    Hello,
    Apologies I've searched for an answer to no avail


    My Audi reported a loss of coolant today. Sure enough its below the minimum line.

    There seems to be a loss/leak from the black rail in this picture.

    I could have sworn this valve(?) should have a top on it.
    Any suggestions?

    Thank you. Looks like the seal ring is perished.

    Yea the plastic bleed screw thats located in the pipe is pretty piss poor & guilty for leaking, it will snap if you even look @ it the wrong way & actually from the look of it the yours already has the head off it, I'd bin it for a metal bolt & sealing washer every time.
