Bloody brittle engine hoses. I have literally just opened the bonnet to find the cylinder head breather hose has split clean in half, allowing oil vapours to get everywhere. Then trying to tape it up (thank god for electrical tape, never leave home without it!) to get home it has split in 3 more places. As the AudiWorld technical reference page says......... 'incredibly brittle ..... think eggshells'. Was just thinking that rather than pay £40 or so for another audi hose that will end up just as fragile, does anyone know where I can get a full hose kit? Plus the standard black hose looks like pants cable conduit. I've order a basic silicone hose to replace the shagged one for now but sooner or later, all sections of the same hose are going to fail.
