Hi there,

My van is slowly poisoning me (T5 2.5TDi) and it looks like the joint where the EGR pipe connects to the manifold is leaking. I'm looking at replacing the pipe, gasket, and pipe clamp but would rather avoid the extortionate VW dealer prices. I've tried everywhere but cant source them anywhere. I know the pipe part number is 070 131 521 AF but it seems almost impossible to find the correct pipe required. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, where the egr connects to the manifold. I've had it apart and cleaned it. The pipe is quite thin metal and a little distorted though it doesn't look like it would make much difference as its not that bad. I did find it odd that there is no type of seal to make it gas tight only the clip to hold the pipe onto the manifold. Thanks for your reply - I'll repost it correctly.
