    Evening guys and girls,

    I hoping to fit an oil pressure gauge to my 1.8t a3 but just wanted to know if il need anything to go ahead with it?
    All iv got is the gauge and the pressure sensor/sender thing, do I need anything to bolt it into the engine or is there somewhere I can bolt the sensor straight in?
    Also, where have people fitted there sensor?

    Any help would be marvellous!
    Thanks in advance :)

    Top of the the oil filter housing there is a spare oil adapter socket. It should just screw into there. Should be an electric one so just need to feed a wire in to the cabin

    There should be some gromets on the bulkhead somewhere behind the airbox/filter. What oil pressure gauge did you get?

    There is a grommet in the corner of the scuttle next to the pollen filter (passenger side) or you can drill holes in the cap (drivers side) where the loom enters the cabin...
