    2006 A6 2.0 tdi egr fault

    cheers for the swift reply, yes i have heard a similar story in that the soot build up puts stress on the drive gears and they eventually break or strip, also my local main dealer told me they just have to be replaced when faulty, cleaning wont cure the problom but they would say that i suppose.
