    AMK engine'd 2001 S3 with 97k on the clock - the two injectors nearest the oil filler cap look to have some weeping from them... Is this likely to be a dying seal, or spilt oil from filling the engine up?

    looks more like it's coming from the injectors, i replaced the seals on mine as one was leaking and they are only cheap for the 8 o rings

    to replace but I'm not sure I've been given the right things. I've got new o-rings for the bottom of the injectors but do these new parts look right to anyone else?

    These are the isolators that screw into the inlet manifold. Do they look right as they are a completely different colour to what is in there right now...

    I think you've got the right part, i changed my 8 o rings last year and it still seems to look as though a couple are leaking :think:

    just ordered mine from audi as i have similair signs, but top and bottom are different sizes and part numbers for the s3 (same part for a3 1.8t though iirc) so dont worry if they arent exactly the same.

    They are the injectors seats. Not a bad thing to change along with the injector o rings.

    And they screw into the manifold? Cool. Thanks. They were only a few quid so if I replace these and the bottom o rings, it shouldnt leak :)
