    I don't believe they do, I think these are on the CR engine?

    Don't know about the CR engine but I think that's the same Pd as my Wife's and I am sure, like the BKD 140 the balance shaft issue doesn't exist for them. I have a file saved on my home compuer I am sure that has some of the codes, will see if I can dig it out for you unless someone else can confirm first? What I have is a copy of the Audi Driver magazine article, maybe someone else has a link?

    Right, not so good news, I didn't find the Adu Drver article, I think it's been deleted and the link now just takes you to a generic Audi Driver page, may be possible if you knew when it was published to look it up butI don't.
    There is another post on here; http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/audi-s...lems-definitive-guide-audi-vw-skoda-seat.html
    Loads of good info and your engine code is mentioned in the first couple of lines ;)
