    Have you tried the VW dealership?

    EDIT: are you having any issues with the car?

    You should have that cam follower. Best thing to do is first phone and ask your VW dealership parts department for a price. If your engine has it then they will quote you otherwise tell you it doesn't have one. Then you can search around.

    On Ebay they only have cam follower for 2.0 FSI. It maybe the same follower, not sure TBH.

    If you do examine the cam follower I'd be interested to know the condition of it. I too have an 1.6 FSI (year 2005) which is currently at over 135k miles. What mileage is your car?

    if you ever clean throttle body never move the flap, just spray and clean small conector inside if you move the flap could cost you a new one,works well with just a good clean and spray when removed but DO NOT MOVE THE FLAP!

    Yes, good advice.

    I've cleaned mine, and before doing that I went through lots of info and advice was to not move the flap. It's the 2nd time I've cleaned it but this time I took it off and it still had lots of carbon build-up.

    First time when I cleaned the throttlebody I made a big booboo. I sprayed into the throttlebody without taking it off. All the muck that was on the TB went into the cylinders. There is also an EGR pipe that connects under the TB and that has lots of carbon build-up. When I sprayed the cleaner it took of all that crud and sent it into the engine. So the engine was actually pinging a little more than before. Lesson learned!

    Forgot to say I wanted to clean my EGR valve but didn't want to make it worse as taking it off completely. Did you clean it in situ? Any difference after cleaning?
