Trying to figure out where these two hoses go from the opil cooler. I think I might have installed some hoses in the wrong place. Here is a pic and if you could post a pic of its location that'd help me a ton. My car is a 2001 a4 1.8tqm

those are coolant feed and return lines. there should be a hardpipe somewhere close that they attach to. you may have that oil cooler oriented the wrong way, im not sure though.

i found where they go and got one pipe to fit (has a small kink) but the other pipe (lower end) I can't get it onto that lower hardpipe.. The pipes haven't been removed at all so not sure why it wont fit. Also is it ok to have a small kink in the pipe?

I think youve got the oil cooler in there about 90 degrees off rotation.
It should be turned more so the hoses come out toward the rear of the car.
its ok to have a very small amount of kinking... any more than that I would try to re-orient the hose

so I can just take the oil filter off and loosen the bolt underneath the cooler and rotate it?

Ook got that all figured out now my next question is this; I need to know where the vac line from the divert valve goes to, the vac line from the intake manifold, and the vac line from underneath the intake manifold. (I think the diverter valve goes to one of the connections under the intake manifold but I just want to make sure)

It should hook onto the one on the very front top passenger side corner of the intake manifold
