    Is it really only a Dealer-only part, or can they be sourced reliably from elsewhere?

    Symptoms - running rich, down on MPG, high Co2 readings, poor idle, etc.

    Having no luck with changing the N80 valve, so moving on to other things to rule them out now.

    I just changed one on my 1.8T got the part from eurocarparts cost about £70 but was Bosch sensor. checked with vag-com after fitting and the fault I originally had with the last sensor was cleared and the new one is working fine with no faults.

    Well, I'm guessing it'll be about £65 then.

    I've not got a fault reading for it, but the symptoms I have lean towards that failing. Will check the wiring first before I jump into it though.

    Cheers guys.

    Yeah, that would be brill. Will it fit okay onto my APU facelift motor?

    Part no. for mine is NGK 0ZA47-E35 - will there be a problem at all do you think?

    How much do you want for it?

    Just checked but it appears that yours uses a different sensor! Sorry mate.

    I tried two of the newer versions for my 96 and it kept throwing up a code so there must be another difference somewhere?
