    If you give them a ring on 01525 750500 I'm sure they will arrange to send you a copy of the current magazine.

    Could you summarise please what it says was wondering whether it was about the current engine & whether its related to the sudden delays on the 2Litre engine

    Right got the mag it is to do with all TFSI fuel pumps there is a whole page on this but basically saying you should make sure the follower is checked on every service.

    If the follower gets badly worn it can damage the cam & pump they say have seen badly worn ones on low mileage cars....can first notice it from a rattle within the pump.

    So basically best to get it checked at every service otherwise could be very costly if not under warranty. The follower is easy & not expensive to replace if required.

    I suggest you buy the mag if you need more details quite interesting.

    Wont audi check this themselves at service if its becoming a known problem, or even carry out a recall and replace them all with something more substantial.

    I think the issue is it will always wear there is no actual fix expect keep getting checked at every service & replace when necessary I am suprised this has not been mentioned before Audi should add this as part of the service as its a known problem but they dont so you have to ask them to check it.
