    Injector Recall for PD170 - Might be already known to you lot.

    Hi Guys,

    My car was in Audi today for its MOT.

    While it was being booked in a recall notice appeared stating that my car has been flagged up to get all injectors replaced FOC.

    Apparently the Recall notice was only issued today? (Saw it pop up on screen with date of today)

    I thought I would just let you guys know.

    nice one for bringing it up to everyones attention... but you are right as many here have already been in to get this sorted

    Anyone else with this problem on 2006 2.0 TDi? Injectors...

    my advice to anyone that has a 170 TDI to contact Audi and find out if the injectors have been done.

    Is this just for 2006 170 and not the 140?

    Checked mate, i phoned up Audi UK, spoke to a chap called Dominic and asked about this issue, he told me that my MY A3 140 was affected and told me to get my car booked into Audi Leeds.

    Audi Leeds checked the part numbers and ran a diagnostics check on them and they came back with a clean bill of health.

    The bloke on the service desk at Audi Leeds told me that the 140s can suffer from this 'dodgy batch' of injectors but it's much more common to the 170 variant.

    Had my car die on me this morning :-(
    Got towed to Audi dealer, as soon as I got there they said there is a recall on this car due to injector problems.
    I asked when this was issued country wide & they said Friday ;-)
    All repaired foc except for a large bill for a holed inlet manifold :-(
    Glad it went now before the bad weather kicked in, nice to see Audi are taking note, regained my confidence with them :-)

    Was the hole in the inlet connected to the injector failure?

    Spoke to Leicester Audi. They will have car in (06 170 Quattro) and check injectors and run diagnostic FOC. Will replace if anything deemed faulty. However, if other faults are flagged by the diagnostic they will charge the £132 + VAT (unreal)!!

    I have a dilemma as sporadically my glow plug light has come on (PL12600 - Inlet Manifold, which has been checked and deemed OK by an independent), so this will no doubt flag again prompting a charge.

    Does anyone know what the likely symptoms are of faulty injectors? Could it be linked to the fault above and I have also noticed a hesitation when accelerating when the car is between 3-4k RPM.

    Any help on the back of this post would be helpful and may save me a few quid!!!

    Cheers

    Well mate i had the same as you, i got an audi tech friend to check mine and he came back to me saying its the manifold intake control flap, same thing my vag com said so i said no chance it is the injectors and he said basically computer says no.

    So my car died yesterday on a roundabout, my hazards light worked and then didnt work, no brake lghts its was choas!

    So i had the manifold intake control flap fitted today and the car still wont start.

    So god knows what next, my car is at the volvo garage as my friend towed it there as he works there so i am going to scan it in the morning and hopfully it comes up with something if not a call to audi techincal guys.

    Hold on guys... i thought a recall means regardless if your car is working at the moment... Audi will have to replace the injectors regardless...

    Wont just checking them mean the recall has not been carried out... or just a failure waiting to happen?

    I mean my car has been perfect... but they are replacing all of the injectors...

    very good point! last time i enquired about it they had told me i had to pay £150 for a diagnosis! i'm going to contact them again and ask them about the recall and see if i qualify for it.

    Just a heads up, got my car back today with the injectors fitted foc ;-)
    The service guy said that if it hadn't broke down on Monday, I still would have been contacted to get the fault fixed !!
    Hope this helps, if not get to your dealer ASAP to check or get them fitted.
    Can be dangerous if it happens on the motorway :-(

    IMO Audi should be sorting these issues out for customers without the need of the customer complaining. they should be on the ball about it and do whats needed to fix the issues.

    I will be contacting Audi again very soon to have my car checked of injector issues.

    Right then after reading a lot here and driving my oil burner for 6 months 2007 170 PD S-Line I thought it time to pick up the phone....... I started with the supplying dealer who confirmed it had had 1 injector was replaced during the 3yr warranty period but not all 4 had been replaced. They also pointed out it was on a "field service" (recall) to have all 4 replaced. So I called my local dealer Stratford Audi who after deleting my old car managed to sort out the system and agreed the injectors are on a recall RK-2 somthing or other. I asked does it qualify for a courtesy car he said yes so all booked in and he said it'll get a visual inspection and a wash and vacuum!
    Now on a 5 yr old motor that ain't half bad! Bet they'll try and find £500 quid's worth of faults but hey ho.
    SO if you have a 170 2.0l TDI PD PHONE YOUR LOCAL DEALER NOW!!! FOC is FOC!!!

    Car died last night! on a dual carriageway ~60mph in 6th, lost power, no revs, loads of lights!

    Police had to divert traffic and AA towed to Audi dealer, gutted to say the least. I was that pleb on the side of the road causing traffic jams!

    Car was already booked in with the same dealer for a new turbo today (good will on parts, I pay labour).

    Audi are now replacing all four injectors FOC + Turbo, apparently everyone is getting a letter in the next two weeks about the recall for injector replacement.

    Hopefully it will be right as rain by the end of the day!

    Can anything else go wrong??! on a 57 plate 2.0 TDI 170 quattro??! DPF, Clutch.... fingers crossed.

    Rang my local Stealer (Lister Coventry) and cars booked in to get all injectors changed FOC!
    .. if youve got a 170pd then ring your local dealer and see if your car is listed as being in the injector recall!

    The check is to see if the dodgy Siemens injectors are fitted.....

    I emailed Audi South Dublin Service to see if the recall was for outside the UK(Audi UK had kindly agreed to replace all four injectors and loom FOC in Belfast a month ago)

    They came back and said that they received the recall notice on the 5th of December and can do all the work FOC with a replacement car provided next wednesday.

    Good service all round

    Hi Guy, Gals,

    Just a quick update got the injectors replaced FOC.

    I am actually amazed that i can actually feel a difference... now considering there was actually nothing wrong that I can tell on my car before it went in... the car seems to be ALOT smoother.

    For those interested... the new parts seem to be bosch made.

    Same as mine, apparently they shouldn't touch the map even if they update the ecu as it takes some doing. I just emailed Audi customer service and asked if mine was on the recall list, got a phone call a couple of days later (today) to have it inspected. Will see what happens.
