    My engine management light came on(2.0 FSI) so I carried out a diagnostic & came up with the fault code: P0404 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Circuit - Range/Performance

    I removed the top casing of the EGR valve & found the cog which had two snapped teeth on it:( I even recovered the broken teeth from within the casing. Some pics of my discovery:

    Is there anyway to replace just the plastic cog or do I have to replace the whole unit(£££)?

    Thanks in advance for any help:)

    Unfortunately the cog is not a replacement part and the whole unit must be replaced.

    Part number is (or should be) 06F 131 503 B

    Audi dealer price is £206.66 but may be cheaper elsewhere.

    Sorry !!!

    Thanks for the info:)

    Is the price including VAT?

    Any idea on labour costs to fit? Hours?

    Yes, price includes VAT but I'm sorry, I can't help you with the labour costs or times.

    Mine did exactly the same thing a few years back. I bought one off of Eurocarparts, it was £189 at the time IIRC. There are a couple on Ebay but you run the risk of the same thing happening on a valve of the same age. Stupid idea using plastic teeth! Its not a hard job, just a slightly awkward bolt to get to on the underneath.
