    Wrong job - not likely to be anything wrong with the oil pump itself so no, this garage does not know the likely cause of the low oil pressure warning. Very outside chance of it being a failed oil pump or even failed oil pressure sensor but from what you have said about the sounds you heard and our experience of these engines tells most on here that it is likely to be the balance shaft and oil pump DRIVE bar.

    Visual inspection the only way to confirm.

    The only way you will know what to do is by dropping the sump. You have stated it has been worked on in this area before so no one has any idea what is in there

    Hello aj1soad
    If that light as come up on your dash. I would suggest you do not drive the car. You could be destroying your turbo and engine.

    You will not be able to see the Allen key without taking off the sump. As it is within the balance shaft . That key is what spins the oil pump.

    I am not as knowledgable as some people on here but I have done the replacement Allen key on My 08 Passat .

    You will get some help from someone soon

    I hopes this helps

    I would be surprised if it had the chain drive, but I can tell if it was built with one by the VIN
