Thread: Water hose help please

  1. #1

    Water hose help please

    Came home in a cloud of smoke as the top hose let go 200 yards from home.

    Found the hole in the pipe



    Went to Audi and the parts guy wasn't sure and seems to think the part is 68 and three pieces?

    Any ideas as it's only this piece that needs changing

    On ETKA it is the pipe that goes from 46 to 11 along the dotted line any help would be great cheers

    Evening,

    Too dark to look now, will look late morning. I must admit I cannot get my head round the diagram without seeing the real layout. Are you sure it goes from 46 to 11? - why is the pipe not shown in the diagram when I assume all other pipes are shown? There are two 46's. I am suspicious of your jubilee clip!!! - some kind of bodge. Maybe the Audi parts man is right and your pipe is part of some larger component that has been separated and fixed with the jubilee clip. Daft idea but have you tried washing it to reveal a part number?

    Can you describe the location of your pipe/post picture of location?

    Just trying to help - Andy

    Hi thanks for the reply

    No part number on it to be seen clearly.

    It is the top pipe going towards the block. There is a small pipe from the top of the rad that goes into a plastic t piece and then the pipe that goes from this to the block is the one with the hole

    It's basically the hose from top of radiator to the thermostat housing

    I have been waiting for it stop raining - do not want me, iPad and engine to get wet.
    Have to give waiting up for now as I have to go out. Try again late afternoon if you want.

    Sorry not yet to be of much help.

    How many litres does the coolant system take on an FSI?

    2 or 3 litres of G13?

    This thread shows the coolant capacity, you can use that and work out the percentage of antifreeze you want to have.
