    hi all new to this forum

    i have a 97 A3 8l 20v 1.8 non turbo engine

    car was lumpy so suspected an air leak

    i found this part number
    06A103474

    vent hose
    the hoses were split in a couple of places so need to replace them
    anybody know where i can source one in the uk?

    sadly whilst looking for any more leaks

    the breather line broke
    part number
    06A103213 which looks like it takes gases from the crank case back to an inlet on the air intake from air filter.

    do i need to take the oil filter bracket off to fix this or is there another way of doing it?

    i havent checked for codes but have generic cable on order so i should be able to test it later in the week

    diagram i am using is below

    part 2 and 5

    thanks for your help

    Tps ( trade part specialist) probably best place no you shouldn’t have to remove oil filter it can be tricky pulling the old one out mine come out in pieces just be careful you don’t drop any thing down there

    the standard connectors appear to be some form of bakerlite compound which crumbles to pieces.

    Just be careful when fitting the new 'bakerlite' pipe into the oil filter housing...

    On my S3,I found it easier to remove the dipstick & holder along with the bracket in front of the inlet manifold(not sure if it's the same for an A3).I just cut the finger off a rubber glove to protect the hole.

    I got the pipes I needed off ebay.

    yeah I didn't have as much of the pipe Audi made when I removed mine - lord only knows where that's gone.

    probably why someone found a lucky penny in their sump :)

    thanks for the link in the thread makes it much easier when its a bit clean mine is filthy - i did take the front bracket off supporting the dipstick but i moved it a little bit so i could get my sausage fingers in to see and snapped the dipstick pipe with it, it does seem if i move something - something else breaks, still its a good car.

    I'm not sure the Haynes covers the S3 does it?

    No Haynes don't do a manual for the s3. Only do one for the a3 of the same year.

    oh hang on the thread opener only has a 1.8 non turbo - sorry :)

    I have a normal Haynes but to be fair youtube and forums are usually best for details.
