    Hello,
    I need new orange oil check tube.
    Anybody know if I must buy this tube only from 1.8T motor or will be fit also from 1.6 or 1.9tdi motors?
    I can not find this tube on ebay.
    Thank you.

    I broke mine the other day too.. i think GSF sell them and also (as said above) a dealer will do them cheaper than what i have seen on ebay.

    Just go to a dealer, next day collection and very cheap. I would buy two, as they are easy to break.
