    Hi All, I've heard on the grape vine that the above valve on my A3 1.8T is probably faulty and has been naff since the time it was born! I was also told that the original one (bosch i think) has been update recently because of its short life span (different make too)

    Can anybody shed any light on this?
    I didn't have the car from new so wouldn't no any better really! It a 97 P if thats any help.

    Cheers Jinx

    P.S. not looking to fit aftermarket one tho.

    Jinx,
    The part code for the diverter valve is 06A 145 710N.
    Have a look at your old valve and the last letter of the code will be lower than N.

    hope this help
