    HELP - B7 2.0Tdi - Inlet Manifold

    First photo is the old unit, and second I'm fairly certain is the new unit box... mine's a brd but I'm confident it is a std part for many vag tdi's. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    HELP - B7 2.0Tdi - Inlet Manifold

    First bit of advice is don't use that garage if they suggest you need to change the inlet manifold! It is the inlet manifold flap actuator and can be bought from tps for about £15ish quid. Never seen one break like that though. Usually the diaphragm inside that perishes. You'll need to remove...

    2.0TDi Oil Pump / Balancer shaft problems - the definitive guide! Audi VW Skoda SEAT

    Crumbs that's a lot more rounded than mine was for similar mileage. How worn was the oil pump keyway? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    2.0TDi Oil Pump / Balancer shaft problems - the definitive guide! Audi VW Skoda SEAT

    Because failure is likely to be a new engine due to oil starvation. And that's probably why many A4 2.0 tdis are being broken.. I junked mine as the I had the front end of the car off for timing belt and dmf/clutch replacement. Glad i did. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    2.0TDi Oil Pump / Balancer shaft problems - the definitive guide! Audi VW Skoda SEAT

    I junked my balance shaft setup at 107k in favour of an ALH oil pump set up. So no future issues. My hex key wasn't badly worn but the amount of play to the oil pump drive was! Your welcome to come have a look at the unit if you want... I'm near Woking. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    170 TDI BRD engine owners - have you had oil pump issues ? (poll)

    Have junked my balance shaft unit and pump at 106K the key wasn't bad wear wise but there was a lot of play between the oil pump and key. Now got an ALH set up. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    2.0TDi Oil Pump / Balancer shaft problems - the definitive guide! Audi VW Skoda SEAT

    Just swapped mine out for a non balance shaft setup using an ALH oil pump and chain drive. As you can see there is some wear but not masses. However there was a lot of play between the oil pump and key! This has done 106k miles and I'm glad I did it! Engine is more responsive and there's no...

    2.0tdi stuttering at certain rpm

    Best place for clutch and flywheel?

    I did... and I wasn't sure they understood what the difference between a quattro and fwd was!!! All they could do was run the reg number too.. Called Tps in the end and it appears the parts are the same and made by Luk. But there are clutch plate differences between 140 and 170 engines. Parts...

    3l TDI - what size exhaust?

    Bigger is always better in my experience... If you plan on remapping and tuning go for 3 inches all the way. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Audi A4 2.0 tdi bre oil pump!

    Fingers crossed you're successful with the warranty. Just thinking, If the sump is off and engine open to weld the key.. Would it not be better to do the delete rather than spending more money taking the sump off again? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Audi A4 2.0 tdi bre oil pump!

    Yes the whole lot. The key wears as do the balance shaft and oil pump it connects between. Better safe than sorry two months later. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    I Wouldn't bother. If you do upgrade, just buy a bigger turbo. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Audi A4 2.0 tdi bre oil pump!

    Be warned though if just the hex key is replaced it will very likely break again within a very short time period! make sure the whole assembly gets replaced. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Yes it is part of the oil pump and balance shaft assembly. The oil pump cannot be driven without it. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Audi A4 2.0 tdi bre oil pump!

    It's the piece that connects the balance shaft module to the oil pump. If that's worn you can guarantee the oil pump and balance shaft keyways are worn too. The lot will need replacing which isn't a small job. Google 2.0tdi balance shaft repair video and images and you'll see. I have just...
