    I have a small water leak from the right hand side of my car( looking at the head lights) its the oposite side from water pump etc .That was changed when they changed the cam belt etc and alls good around that area .I have removed the engine cover from underneath and cannot see any corrosion or damage .Is there any known Leaks/faults seals etc .I have phoned the warantee place, WMS who are saying if its a seal they will not pay hence me having a look .They have also stated that i can not use Audi/main dealers etc .Any one have any ideas .Its a 2007 2.0 tdi sport.

    Cheers

    If you mean passenger side front then radiator leaks are a common fault in that bottom corner

    Try K-Seal. It's about £7 a bottle and you just pour it into the header bottle without having to pre-mix.
