    57 plate 2.0 tdi BKP
    had a warning light come on the car yesterday and when idling and you rev over 2500 youll hear like a crunching noise. is it likely to be a rounded hex spindle? i know it had a problem with the oil pump 4 years ago just before we bought the car but not sure what the actually changed on it at the time. if it is just a rounded spindle again what would the fix be? a new oil pump crank sproket kit? am i right in thinking there is a way to inspect the spindle without taking the sump off?

    s-l1600.jpgis this the kit i need? once the sump is off is it quite an easy job? ive had a look at a few videos and it said that its either the hex shaft that wears or the teeth on the big sproket. if i wanted to inspect the big sproket would i have to take the sump off as well?

    57 plate would most likely have gear driven unit so chain driven kit not correct unless you want to convert back which is possible but a whole different job. It is likely the shaft hole is already damaged and changing the hex bar only not advisable. It may have a 100mm bar but an inferior shaft repair hence has failed again (like mine did again after 40k of use). Could still be the 77mm bar which means the 100mm would not fit anyway as the balance shaft needs to be re-engineered properly to a deeper hexagonal key hole.

    Kit 9 from KMB Direct most likely

    Done a few of these now so help available if you need it.

    Sump has to come off no matter what and uses special sealant not a preformed gasket.

    If after you've pulled the sump you see a gear driven unit it will be kit 9. KMB state the engine codes quoted are a guide only as there are overlaps between versions. BKP have either depending on year.

    Just to clarify my earlier comment I fitted a NON KMB shaft the first time around as it was cheaper - only lasted 40k. Now have a KMB Direct balance shafts which I expect to last the remaining life of the car for sure.

    ok thanks. would VW be able to tell me if its gear or chain driven? ive been quoted 376 by a garage to do it but they didnt actually say in the email if that was + vat or if parts were included. i would have assumed theyve priced for chain driven. also i read that the sump is different depending if its chain or gear driven?

    Yes VW should be able to confirm chain or gear from VIN. Not seen any BKP of your year with chain so far.

    Don't drive it at all. If you do you risk destroying your top end of the engine and turbo. Best to take to the garage, have them take sump off, fit new uprated balance shaft and buy the balance shaft locking tool. You'll also need new balance shaft securing bolts and a circlip. Make sure you take it someone who is aware of what's involved in the job. I doubt 376 is the bill of everything included.
