Receipt for Balance Shaft Assembly, good or bad?


Registered User
Just recently purchased my third A4 2.0TFsi in the last 5 years. This one is a 2006 with 69k miles on the clock.

Looking through the large pile of receipts I have come across the following from Sale Volkswagen - Audi:

Supply & fit new balance shaft assembly £940.79
Oil pump chain £22.57
Chain tensioner £30.88
New engine oil & filter
Total cost with labour & Vat £1,860.

Do you think this is something major that has been carried out as preventative maintenance?

Cheers all.

Ring them and ask they should be able to say if it was due to a failed shaft
