View Full Version : Thermostat Housing lower O-ring

11-27-2015, 05:49 PM
On the AWM 1.8T motor, does anyone have a VW/Audi part number (or just a size so i can order on amazon) for the O ring that is inside the hose that attaches to the lower side of the plastic thermostat housing?
I replaced the housing for sh** and giggles when I was doing flange and other things, but I didn't replace this O ring. It's leaking from their now...

^ Thats the o ring that goes on the thermostat where it sits in the block.

The entire plastic thermostat housing has another end on it. That is a quick disconnect type connection into a hose that comes from below (radiator hose maybe?). Inside the tip of that hose is the oring that I need.

If its the same size as the ones on the radiator, it would be 32 x 4mm. More info here


Seems like there is 2 sizes of those connectors: the ones at the radiator, and the ones for the heater core. Not sure if the thermostat one is a match for those, or if it is some 3rd size.
