Hi guys,

Suffered the embarrassment of being taken home on the back of an AA truck this afternoon:(

Water leaking but I can't see from where - gentle hissing noise from somewhere at the back of the engine bay in the middle (AJT, 2.5tdi). Sounded like it could be a hose (if I'm lucky) but what's down there? Are there many options?
Hopefully I can get it on axle stands and have a better look in the morning but if anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful as I'm due to drive to France straight after Christmas so have to sort it now.

Thanks

Steve

Could be from the oil cooler above the oil filter. There are one or two seals there that get hard with age & can leak.

Thanks, jets. Having a bit of trouble getting my neck to stretch enough to check all the nooks and crannies! I'll keep looking...

Found it, you were right, jets - shorter of the two hoses from the block to the oil cooler is holed...now to try and find the part number!!!
