Hi Yarsir, Mine were the same all changed back in September last year before I bought it. I was still worried so contacted Audi UK who advised to book it in anyway and they changed all 4 injectors. I would send an email to them, cant hurt.
Our Audi a4 Avant has 4 failed fuel injectors. It has been sitting at our local garage for over a week. I emailed Audi UK on Friday but have heard nothing although it is a bank holiday. We did not buy our car from an Audi dealer but it does have a FASH. Do you guys think that they will do the work or do you think they will not as the car was not bought from an Audi dealer?? Any advice would be very welcome
How many other people dont know about this until they research online and that is if they ever do...
Apart from the obvious inconvenience I was very happy with the way Audi dealt with me
Ah, my indie (who is listed as a sponsor on here) charged me for 6... yes 6 hours labour... needless to say I am not happy now that I found out a "specialist" either didn't know what he was doing, or just ripped me off...
Thanks guys for telling me the charges... looks like I won't be seeing that money again, nor recommending the sponsor to anyone
...am I expected to believe that an injector and a fuel pump can fail at exactly the same time without being related problems?
itâs just like if youâre pistons or engine goes dead on the motorway?...

If we ignore 2007 figures, ~2.3% of all owners have reported faults to VOSA so far, with a couple more trickling per week per forum?
That's a lot of injectors to swap outâ¦
Just note that this is my own research based on whatever I could find online, and should not be treated as hard evidence, just ballpark figures which no agency has been willing to provide so farâ¦ so I got it myself.
I may have missed a model or twoâ¦ its whatever I could get off forums and engine/vehicle data online for the UK...

Surely it affects ALL 170 PD engines as the injector modification/update was made in 2010? And the PD170 was a short production run early 06 to mid 08?
