    Part number question for turbo intercooler pipe

    Hi all, I need a new turbo intercooler pipe for my 2003 a3 1.9tdi. I have taken the pipe off and the part number printed on it is '1J0 145 838 S'.

    Turbo Intercooler Pipe comes off?!

    Thanks for the quick reply. So you just need to buy 2 jubilee clips and 4 cable ties. Would you recommend this as a good enought fix? Also is it normal to have oil in this pipe?

    Turbo Intercooler Pipe comes off?!

    I have a 2003 audi a3 1.9 TDI. I have a pipe that keeps popping off. I believe it is the turbo intercooler pipe. I believe that the clip has worn away, which is why it keeps popping off. Just wondering if there is a quick fix for this, or is it easier to just buy a new hose. Also I have...

    Just purchased a 2003 Audi A3 1.9 TDI Sport. What checks should I do?

    Thanks for your advice. Im glad I checked on here first as I just bought 10w- 40 part, but havnt changed oil yet. Think il take it back and change it for some 5w-30 fully. Is the VAG spec just written somewhere on the bottle?

    Just purchased a 2003 Audi A3 1.9 TDI Sport. What checks should I do?

    I was told that the oil to put in the engine was 5w-30 fully synthetic, or 10w-40 part synthetic for engines with higher mileage? I was thinking about remapping, but doesn't this put more strain on the engine and components such as the clutch and how will it effect fuel economy?

    My previous car was the S3 in the pic, and I have not owned a car for the previous 3 years due to studying at Uni, so I have forgotten a lot of my knowledge and apologise for posting in wrong section. I have since reposted in the correct section. I will get some pics up soon :)
