    Hi all,

    I’m looking for some advice.

    I’m thinking of buying a 2nd hand Audi A3 1.6 Sport (52)


    The engine code is: AVU.


    My question is, does this 1.6 suffer from the same self machining syndrome that all golf 1.4 / 1.6's have?

    I believe the gearboxes affected are of 02A model with the following codes:

    DUU
    DUW
    DUS
    DUV
    DLP
    DNZ

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The code on the one you are looking at will be on the sticker in the boot, or in the service book, opposite the engine number in the top corner

    Thanks for the information Mark!

    I bought the car and I am over the moon with it! :happy:

    I now know I have a BFQ engine with a DUU Gearbox!

    Should I be concerned with the DUU gearbox?
