    the car has been into audi today for the recall as mine hadnt had one yet i waited for the car and it was over 2 hrs .
    i said to the service girl had the 4 coil packs been done and she said yes so i was happy with that it also got a full inside and out wash n hoovering , but when i pulled out of the audi yard the damm thing had still got the flat spot so i pulled over to check and they hadnt replaced any at all all 4 was still ending in R.
    i flew back and went mad.
    she stormed into the garage part and came back with saying the part numbers on my coilpacks were the correct ones for my avj engine
    but she had said they had been replaced? typical stupid dealers this is why everyone should avoid,
    so long story short the car had a bloody long car wash grrrrrr

    I dont get it. What's the problem - you now have four new coilpacks haven't you? One of which you'd identified as dud - two of the others weren't oe. Did you ask the dealer to investigate the flat spot? OR just replace the coilpacks. I'm asking because hunting down a flat spot on mine ended up finding some damaged vac pipes - not dud coilpacks.

    I first raised this on Audifans - the post, with pics of the offending pipes, is here - Niggling "misfire" - Audifans.net - this may - or may not - be of help, and I accept that the engines are not identical of course, mine being naturally aspirated.

    Mike.

    no they never changed them they were still the old ones in?
    i know its the coil pack as 1 of them is dud , i proved that swapping them around and finding the bad one via vagcom , i borrowed one from my mate as he had a spare , hence no more flat spots , the 2 non gens are fine its the gen audi one thats at fault

    Does you car fall under the recall policy issue by Audi or not?


    If you think your car is eligible for a recall, call Audi UK, give them you chassis number and they will confirm they will then let you know where you can take it. I did this, and the had the local dealer replace all 8 coil packs.

    If not, spend some money and buy 4 new coil packs or at least the one at fault. I don't get it, you have found the fault, proved it and still not sorted it?

    Well, I had the coil packs on mine replaced without asking while it was having an oil change. The "fluffing" problem I had was nothing to do with them incidentally. 4 new coils. I know this, because they told me they were to be replaced, and I'd marked the originals! Mike

    Hi,

    When I took my car in for coil replacement I was originally told (after about an hour's wait) that they didn't need replacing.

    Using some of the information here http://12v.org/urs/28E9CoilReplacementCampaign.pdf I complained to the dealer. After an exchange of emails they apologised, re-booked the car, replaced all the coils and put some petrol in my car for my trouble. They did also point out that the information I'd found wasn't from the UK.......

    Towards the bottom of the link there's a list of good/bad part numbers that may be of interest. It does suggest that part numbers ending in R are OK.

    Hope that's of use.

    Rick.
