      I found that the other day my car was leaking coolant, so now that i had some free time I popped the hood and checked it out where the leak was coming from. By simple look, I found it was somewhere near to the water/coolant tank on the passanger side.
      I checked all the hose and ended up having a two fingers crack on this plastic piece with a part number
      0257 >PA66-GF30< I visited my local auto parts and none of them have it. They offered me some T hose adapters that honestly i didnt want to deal with it since there is not enough room to play with all the hoses.
      Could someone help me find a better way to look up for this part. Otherwise i might try the dealer.

      haha, just fixed the exact piece myself.

      Just grab one from the dealer, it's not that bad less then $25 for the part if I remember correctly. Also it includes the hose that goes to the lower portion of the coolant ball. Just be careful because when I first asked for the part, the part number was wrong in the VW system and the dude came out with some part that costed like $75 but it was the wrong one. I pointed out the mistake by looking at the screen and explaining it again and he brought back the right piece. Since you have it out I suggest bringing it with you.


      During replacement I didn't lose that much coolant, as I unbolted the coolant ball and tipped it on it's top while I replaced the bottom hose so nothing really dripped out. The feed for the line comes from the front of the block, it's the first T off the hardline that goes around the driver side of the car eventually ending in the feed to the heater core. The other part of the Y goes into the turbo feed line.

      Easy Fix, took some pliers a screwdriver and like 10 mins total.

      I replaced mine with a brass T fitting from home depot. It worked perfectly and I will never have to worry about it breaking again. Oh, and it was waaaay cheaper than the crappy plastic piece.

      ^ i know it should be way cheaper to make your own with home depot or a local auto parts.

      I got it from the dealer for $30 just same piece plus a little hose like the one in the link posted above.
      Thanks everyone

      I bought this to upgrade mine even though it hasn't started to leak. For pretty about the same cost (few $ extra), I no longer have to worry about this peice leaking.
