    If you want something answered please make sure it's understandable because I sure don't know what you're going on about.

    My dipstick tube for my AUM engined A3 was purchased from VW, the Golf 4 has the same engine in later models so they were happy to help me, however, they did tell me that they couldn't get hold of dedicated Audi parts so if your car is an S3, they may turn you away. GSF also sell the dipstick tubes though so maybe worth contacting them?

    It seems they always snap from what i have read. As long as you make sure the snapped bits are in as far as they go, you wont lose any real amount of oil , unless your car is breathing heavily enough to smoke out of the hole. Which i doubt.


    Dont worry, go to VW and for around £3 it will be sorted
