I think a mechanic has bodged the pcv valve breather pipe with tape causing it to rip and cause a vac leak I ordered a new breather pipe and the car sounds much better plus it pulls better to! Case...
Looks like you have a few split pipes mate that would explain the poor MPG mate, you should find the split pipes and replace them with silicon ones, forge do some good silicon pipes for the 1.8t engine also the performance will be a lot better when you replace the pipes!

From the diagram it looks like it is the Rear left vehicle level sender -G76 this was snapped snapped off at the connection on the original tie bars have a picture here if it helps<br>
Could always try and adjust the lights from the white plastic screws that are on the lights
Hi I replaced my rear tie bars for adjustable ones last year but never attached the Xenon headlight level sensor just wondering if it will effect my car when it comes to MOT time and should I need to have it fitted on to the new tie bar?
