    easy enough to change mate, have a look on ebay for the part or they can get pricey from a main dealer,

    cool

    presumably once you get the front bumber off, access is ok

    how specific are they to the car

    i.e would one for a 2.5 TDI non quattro fit mine or even one from an A6 2.5

    1.9tdi?

    or do I have to get the exact part/model no

    get Like for Like mate, you may also get away with just taking off the under tray to get at it too, but the bumper off would make it a cleaner job to do,

    i took the tray off mine and the head light out and sliped it out the bottom. not that tricky.

    a biger intercooler? there not much room in there 2 me. theres front mounted 1s on ebay there £300.

    leaking intercoolers can be fixed aslong as its not the top or bottom of the rad. iam in the north east and i took mine 2 advanced radiators. there are firms out there that fix them. cheaper that buying a new 1.

    thanks TDI Heed

    so you did not need to take the bumber off?

    I have purchased an OEM replacement

    Mine leaks quite badly (apparently) -- My car looses power badly on boost and smokes on throttle which my garage said could easily be caused by leaks in my induction tract
