So this is beginning to bug the **** out of me. Over the last 4 months my rocker cover has developed an oil leak at the rear left hand side (as you look at it from the front, inline engine). It drips directly onto what I think is either the particulate filter, or the catalytic...
Guys, I think I may have found my problem! Tried doing a vacuum test on it, by sucking on the pipe, lots of air movement but no movements of the actuator. If I blew then there was full resistance.
Does anyone know the part number of the actuator?
Wow! Thanks for the replies guys. I'll look into it! Although I have tested the swirl flap actuator on the inlet manifold and it does work, but I suppose it could have split and should be working better!

I have a 56 plate A4 TDi 170, up until this afternoon it used to start up first key turn and run extremely smoothly for a derv. today I got to the car, it opened with the RCL and on trying to start it the engine just cranks and won't fire up. All the lights go out properly, the engine...
I've been assured by the seller they were s4 and shown the car they were removed from - reputable seller on eBay too. I need to 100% confirm with audi to make sure they are the right carriers, but they are pretty big and I don't think I'd want to go bigger due to material stresses.
Its been on here for a while, i think Dave is probably busy. I need someone with an S4 to measure some bits for me. Noticed you're from Telford? I lived in Shifnal for 27 years before moving to Scotland.
You'll also find the S4 mounting points on the hub are further out which allows for the 345mm disc. This is the position i'm in, geniune S4 345mm discs, carriers and callipers yet when mounted up will only allow the 321mm disc to be fitted. Nice one audi.
If there's one thing I've learnt about these cars, is every weekend it needs a good long drive. My car is very low mileage and was owned by a lass in Aberdeen who did short journeys, so i make sure the dpf is fully cleared.
Tom, I'm doing this conversion on an a4 currently and have either been sold the wrong carriers or the hubs on an S4 give a great mounting pointing to allow for the bigger disc as after fitting mine it will only allow for the 321mm disc to fit under.
