    Hi ,

    Can anyone help i have been trying to get this part but seems to be backordered everywhere ?

    its a water pipe there are 2 at the back of the engine of the s3 which are covered in a silver heat sheid.

    The part number is 8L9 121 157D

    does this come with the heat sheid ? and is there any where else to buy this as its strange that i cannot get when its just a bit of hose ???:uhm:

    This part is just a hose with a heatsheild on it ,

    i took it off by taking the 2 clips of each side , it was leaking so it needs replacing just wanted to know where to get that part from .

    There is no need for a garage its a easy fix....

    I'm pretty sure they are the same across the whole A3/S3 range and TTs. Perhaps a call to a breakers yard, or make a temporary fix with after market hose until you can get right part.

    Basically mate, its 2nd hand or wait for the main dealer

    Doubt the heat reflective stuff will come with it, just ask your local parts dept at Audi they should tell you what the score is

    I used http://www.cooltek.co.uk/ for my heat sheilding when I did my turbo swap. You can probably get it from other places too.

    However, if its a standard part on your car, then you can get it from audi. It might be 8L9 121 655 A or 8L9 121 653. Both are listed as heat deflectors, but don't give lengths.

    I just told you. They are listed as "deflectors" they are on the same page as the coolant pipe you mentioned above. If the pipe doesn't come with the heat sheild, it may be one of these.

    Thanks ,

    Im sure the item comes with the heat shield as i cant see why not as the part comes with other connectors and needs a shield where it is .:thumbsup:
