    That's one of your PCV pipes, and it should have a part number printed on it somewhere.

    Bear in mind though that you may need to have to buy a whole handful of pipes, not just the one you're after. Audi tend to sell them in kits; when one of my PCV pipes under the inlet manifold split(the one your pipe plumbs into) I had to buy this little lot at a cost of £70:

    give Audi a call and check the pricing, i personally would see where the break is and maybe cut a lil bit off and resecure with a jubilee clip...depending on how far down it is

    Common problem, I've had the same hose split twice on my S3. I understand that there is a lot of boost pressure going through this hoses especially if your car has been mapped they'll tend to split. Best bet is to go to yor local dealer and they should kindly have a look at it. They'll usually have the replacement part by the next day if its not in stock. in the mean time dont drive on boost. Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

    also good advice although i suggested check if you can do a fix yourself as dealers notoriously charge for a set of pipes, 90% of which you wouldnt need replacing - sledge hammer fix, why not replace the engine too:beerchug:
