  1. Hi there, help! In an old thread you spoke about a 2005 passat with a balance shaft/oil pump fail. You said car was driven until brake vacuum went. I have a customer with exact same car who's pump/brakes went. I've stripped down to the hex shaft that is well worn, as yet haven't taken out balance shaft carrier or shaft (engine is bkp with gear drive pump) my question(s) are, was the engine ok in the one you did? I expect turbo at the least to have gone on this one. I'm hoping to just put a new hex shaft in tomorrow just to bolt it Back together and start up to see what, if any, other damage is done. I've found an engineering co to refurb the balance shaft forĀ£300 but don't want to go that far yet if engine is no good due to lack of oil and vacuum etc. any feedback would be fantastic
