    Hi guys wandering if somebody can help? I done an engine scan with Ross tech and it came back with engine code of AKE. I had to order a intake manifold flap motor and eurocarparts have the part but its for a BDG engine. Eurocarparts say they think my car is a BDG and they say they checked Audi website database with my details and it came back that my car is a BDG. How can I be certain which it is? Any help would be appreciated. Its an 04 plate 2.5TDI FWD not a quattro.

    Many thanks

    2004 is likely to be BDG but i'm sure someone will be along soon confirm. IIRC it was 2003 when the changeover from the A series to the B series engine.

    Look in the spare wheel well of your car or in the front of the service manual. It will state on there what engine you have.

    As Dan says - check for the engine code on the build sticker. The B series engines have a motor driven manifold flap, the A series ones were vacuum driven I believe.

    Thanks for the help guys. Just checked the service book and it says its a BDG. Not sure why Ross tech thinks its an AKE.
