Just to let everyone know, My Sportback 170PD Sport 2.0TDI 2006 "56" plate ,39,000 miles is booked in at Chingford Audi on the 26th of this month to have all the injectors tested and changed including new loom completley free of charge.
After reading many of your horror stories and how much it cost, i decided to phone Audi Customer service on 0800 699888. I explained to them the situation, and that it seems by other people who have the bad experience of their injectors packing in, that Audi were aware that there was a common fault with this problem, especially this engine. Audi surprisingly admitted that yes there is known fault. They asked for my reg, and confirmed that my year and model fell into that timeline.
They told me to take my car to Chingford Audi for a booking, and to ask Chingford to call them to confirm that Audi UK will be covering the cost.
Audi Chingford and Audi UK, both told me that first they will check the injectors to see if there are any faults, and even if they don't find any, but see the injectors have the old part number, as a precaution, they will still change ALL FOUR injectors and Loom to insure I do not experience any trouble in the future.
Pretty good all round service from AUDI if you ask me!
NOW...my only concern is that I have a remap, and that if Audi spot this, they may cancel the claim and sting me with the hefty 2K bill. AmD Essex, assured me 100% that they will not be able to trace the map or even see the flash count, but did say that if they are changing all injectors that they will likely do a software update anyhow, which will overide the remap. But that would not be such a problem as they have the remap file so could easily flash my ECU again, but they would need to tweak it abit because of the new software from Audi, and they would only charge a small fee to re-do this.
My question is, has anyone had there injectors changed under warranty, re-call etc and left the remap on with no issues from Audi, and did it get wiped off with a software update.
I am thinking maybe just get the stock map back on to be safe. Would rather pay 50-60 quid to have the remap put back on than have to fork out 2K to Audi when they decide half way through the job that there is a remap!!
AmD assured me the flash count would show up as Zero and show no faults as they now have software that hides all their flash data within the ECU!
I will keep you all posted once the car is done and I get it back.
