    I have a pretty bad water leak but can't see where it's coming from at all! I know the region it's coming from but that's all, is there any way of seeing how and where the coolant pipes are routed? If it is possible could someone please have a look for me, the car is a 2003 a4 saloon 2.5tdi 163bhp fwd. the leak is somewhere above the bottom passenger side engine mount and I have a video I could email if that's any help, thanks lads

    It's worth getting yourself a copy of both Etka and Elsawin, they're only about a fiver each and they're very handy.

    I'll have a look later if I get 5.

    This is from an AKE but they're not that different I don't think:

    Cheers for that mate! Yeah it is the same, I eventually found the culprit, it's the one next to the one that runs through the oil cooler, (under it on the actual engine) running from bottom to top on the diagram and it's going to be a absolute ba**ard to get to and get off! cheers for that anyway mate, where did you get etka and elsawin? eBay??
