    Hi there

    took my 1999 s3 for a basic service to my mates and he said when he lifted the box to get too plugs 3 + 4 there is a little pipe that goes into a T piece from the box and it is split.

    What is it?
    Where do I get one?
    What difference will it make?

    Thanks again

    Steve

    its part of the vacuum system....mine went a few weeks back, Audi wanted 60-70quid for an array of pipes.... that included the T piece.... so i fabricated my own.... save yourself some money if you can fit another piece in mate
