    i need some urgent help please ive only broke a brake pipe on my a3 2.0 tdi, when i was changing over my calipers and hoses on my passenger side (ns),
    i was undoing a nut that had a pipe coming from it (pics below)that fed into the arch, on further inspection ive found out that it goes to the abs block (hydraulic block) which is situated just behind and under the battery, you can undo the pipe by a nut on the block and replace it but god knows what part number it is and even what is called, or where i can even get it from. please can anybody assist me

    ive switched the engine on and on my cluster its telling me theres a brake leak etc warning warning, and this means i carnt drive my car until i get it fixed now which has messed everythink up, if anybody knows what its called or what part number it is or where i can buy it from it will be very much appreciated,

    I think you have only 2 options.

    1. Get the pipe from a scrap car
    2. Go to the dealers and explain/ point out the part you need

    Sorry

    bring the old pipe to a motorfactors that can make you a copy of the old one. doesnt have to be exact as copper is pretty handy to bend etc. phone first though and make sure they do it.

    sub tenner Id imagine. halfords sell the parts if you can catch them before they close (well my local halfords has them anyway). But they cant make them up. you need someone with a flaring tool to flare the ends.

    Now you'll need to change the brake fluid and bleed the whole system to make sure you have no air in the rest of the system as you started it up with a major leak the abs pump could well be empty or full of air

    You may well need someone with VCDS to activate the abs pump but at the least it'll need a pressure or suction bleed kit, they are not as easy as older generation braking systems (2 person method)

    Good luck!

    will the abs pump not only empty if it was activated while dry? master cylinder may need bled unless the OP jammed the brake pedal on prior to the work.

    fun times ahead :)

    Gravity.

    The air will rise into the pump as the fluid leaks out, that will 99.9% need the abs pump bleeding.

    Seriously no offence but leave well alone if if all you've done is replaced the pipe and think it'll all work fine

    They need bleeding by someone who knows what they are doing... Get a mobile mechanic out

    Brakes are far too important, you'll end up killing someone if they are not done correctly

    I applaud you for giving it a go, but if your unsure, and I only assume this as your asking for help, please get a mechanic
