VAG 1.6 TDi CR injectors
site index A-Z
2012 onwards VAG 1.6 TDi CR injectors fail wholesale. We have seen loads of low mileage VW - Audi - Seat - Skoda with less than 30.000miles on the clock with failed injectors. Limp mode - running on three cylinders - top speed 15mph.
Siemens Piezo injectors fitted to them are different to normal coil solenoid common rail injectors. The top actuator is formed from 80 crystal sheets. When a pulsed voltage is passed thru them - the crystals expand and open the diesel injector nozzle pintle via a little hydraulic pump inside the injector body.
Siemens and most other factors have withdrawn all of the recon stock due to warranty issues.
VAG group have not recalled these - Vosa are aware but as it is not a safety related problem - they are not inforcing a recall in the UK.
If you car is over three years old - you warranty will have expired.
We have sourced a limited supply of upgraded injectors to fit VAG 1.6 TDi CR engines.
These will carry a 24month 24000mile warranty if they are fitted by us in our workshop (PE301FB).
Cost (fitted and coded) is £660 per injector.
We do sell the kit to the trade at a reduced cost with a reduced warranty.
