In 1.4 TDI 3-cylinder engines by Volkswagen, the balancer shaft and the oil pump are mounted on the ladder-type frame and are driven by a chain from the crankshaft. The components of the balancer shaft drive are susceptible to wear due to high loads and exceeding the oil change intervals. In the worst case, the chain may break, resulting in serious engine damage.
The crankshaft gearwheel is not available separately from the manufacturer. It can only be ordered with the crankshaft which makes the repair expensive. febi bilstein offers a unique repair solution for the aftermarket!
Other components of the balancer shaft drive are also frequently affected by wear. For this reason, febi bilstein offers two repair kits: febi 32266 without and febi 43667 with crankshaft gearwheel.
This combination enables a professional repair and avoids potential complaints. That saves time and money for both workshop and customer!
