Poll : Replacement injectors failed 1.6tdi CAYD

Post by ransomz0 »

Hi,

Has anyone who has replaced the original 03L130277B injectors with either 03L130277S or A2C9626040080 had the replacements fail ?

Sorry to keep banging on about injector issues but understanding this point will help me decide of I should persevere with my 1.6tdi caddy journey. I have invested some time and money getting it to this point and dont want to pour good after bad...

My first injector failed at 23000 miles, I didn't want to mess around so changed all 4 to the new S suffix. I've just hit 55000 and have had no more issues, although I know I'm still pretty low mileage.

Hi ransomzo,
Fascinated to read your post. I have been trying to 'drill down' to establish future prospects for my 16tdi. I have found it VERY difficult to get clear answers. I have owned mine since 50k now done 108k ad I have broken down in France, S. Coast and Bristol. Long journeys home on a flatbed! I have never in 40 years owned such an unreliable vehicle! Losing work it's now in the garage again. I can not really afford to replace it, equally such dangerous unreliability is an issue....... Dilemmas!!!

My 2011 is on 82000, injector 1 has only ever been replaced at 67000, and prior to my ownership none. I guess I’ve just been lucky. I always use good fuel and service it regularly.

I’ve had 1 go in 41,000 miles of ownership. I’ve got a 2011 1.6 with 122000 miles on.
