    Just a heads up that there is a recall on right now for Diesel injectors on the TDi 170 VAG engines. I just got all 4 replaced courtesy of Aberdeen Audi.

    One of the blokes I work with had his done last week as the recall. The car then broke down 4 days later. AA reported he had diesel in the oil. Audi have had his car back and have now stripped the engine down to repair. Feel really gutted for him. A3 2007 car too

    Hi Peter. I have the same engine as you. The recall is only for the 170bhp models so you should be OK.

    I have heard of some 140 bhp models being done so worth giving your local Audi dealer a call

    Hi Gogsie

    Thanks for this, where did you hear about the recall? My 170 A3 has had a dodgy injector since I bought it 2 years ago. Had the loom cleaned, no luck. I have just emailed Audi Whetstone to have mine done. Will keep you posted.

    I had a remap and dpf removed 18 months ago, hope this wont stop Audi fixing the injectors....... I kept the old pipe, so worse case I can put it back on and remove the remap temporarily.......

    No problem, I heard it from an ex VAG technician mate of mine. How do you find the de DPF? Any issues with MOT's?.
