Hi All, Im new to all this and needed some advise,

I took my car into West London Audi for a visual health check last month and they told me the Boost Pipe Seals were Leaking and need replacing, they have quoted me £95 for the job (parts and labour), when i asked the parts department she said there are 3 boost pipe seals which retail at £4.67 each

I was just wondering, is it an easy job to do yourself? ive got some axil stands and a toolbox but im fed up with being ripped off by mechanics and thought id give it a try myself?? is it wise or should i get a qualified mechanic to do it?

Ive got a 2004 Audi A3 2.0 TDI Sport 140bhp.

Any help would be appreciated... Thanks guys....

They always leak a bit anyway so wouldnt worry about it to be honest,you can do them yourself,easy as jack car up or put on ramps and drop plastic engine shield

i had a look at mine yesterday, once you have got the tray off you will see them right behind the bumper on either side mine look like the o rings have goen as there is a load of grud covering them which might be the reason i was loosing boos the other day if you find my post 'got no boost' there are a few pics
