Well title says it all, Will a Samco hose kit that came off a 99 1.8T AEB passat fit the same as a 1.8T AEB A4?

Talking the hoses from:
Turbo to front tube
Hose to DV
Hose from front tube to SMIC

I'm getting two different part numbers, so I'm not thinking its a good crossover for you. A4 specific hoses are available.

I see that. I can't seem to find a picture of an A4 version or even the stock hoses(everywhere has a generic image or n/a). The TBB looks the same and the front tube to SMIC looks the same. Just wondering if anyone knows that they made them differently.

Here is a pic that I stole off of your site for the used Passat kit that you have for sale

I know it's small, but does anyone think these hoses will work?

Could you be pulling up the part number for the early 97 A41.8t AEB setup that comes with the different BPV hose since that year the BPV was mounted up high? That hose is different for the different years of the AEB so that could mean they have 2 different part numbers. The picture that was posted up above looks to have the newer type of BPV hose for the A4's that came with the BPV mounted in the turbo outlet hose.

Here is a picture for the early AEB 97. Notice that the BPV hose looks completely different.


From what I have noticed is there are 2 different part numbers for the A4 1.8t hose kit.

A4 1800 Turbo 1997-99 US Spec. AEB 97-99/ATP 00/AWM 01


A4 1800 Turbo B5 AEB/AVJ

Samco also lists

A4 1800 Turbo B5 US Spec

So mike, are you thinking these will work?
Here is a little bigger picture of the kit.

Not sure. Only way to know is to try and find pics of the OEM hoses.

Maybe this picture can help.

Guess I'll be the guinea pig. I picked up the kit for $50 shipped, so if anything I can sell it on some Passat Forum and make money. I get it on Tuesday next week, but it's -21 below out right now with the windchill and I don't see myself getting under the car till it gets up in to 20+.
