    Thread: Help Identifying Hose

    1. 06-30-2020 01:43 PM #1
      I own a 2006 A3 2.0T and a hose near the back of the engine bay near the drivers side is cracked. Which hose is this? I have provided a picture of the hose.

      I can't post a picture but its' a hose sitting underneath the power steering reservoir connecting into a large black cylinder in the back of the engine bay, drivers side.

      Is it a hard one about half an inch in diameter? I replaced one recently that sounds like what you're talking about (picture isn't loading) it's a vacuum hose and it has an updated part number from what I remember.

      Part # 1K0612041KC

      Yup that looks like it - to confirm, if the other end goes into the same piece of plastic as the temperature sensor, that's the one.

      It's a bitch to get to by the way, I'd recommend taking the battery out.

      Thank you again! It looks like it'll be a real bitch, but battery is already out. Where did you order the part from?

      I'm in Canada so I used germanparts.ca but I see ECS has it and of course the dealership is an option. They go on a few cars and seem to be prone to cracking as they age so should be fairly easy to track down.

      I actually changed that bit of plastic where the sensor goes because part of it snapped. Might be worth checking over and doing that at the same time tbh.

      That's not a power steering reservoir, that's your brake fluid reservoir.
      The hose next/below is the brake booster vacuum hose.
      If it's cracked then you'll notice spike engine idle and loss of brakes/ pedal feel.

      Use some spit or really light amount of silicone on the ends when installing the new part.
