    Yep it's definitely the round thing.

    I think it's connected to a long thing :)

    Am I not being any help ? ;)

    Seriously though I am off to look through the factory manual to see if I can find what it is.
    Can you let me know

    petrol 3.0 I get but is it Manual, what year ? etc so I don't spend a whole day guessing

    Hi Stu

    it's the Vacuum pump for brake servo on the 3.0 petrol.

    Hope that helps :)

    You said you needed to know what it was.
    so I found out and told you.
    Mine doesn't have one either.

    why did you need to know so badly ?

    Mine doesn't have one either, but there are two different types of brake servo fitted to the B6.
    It must just depend which servo you have as to the round thing being fitted, or not.
