Extremely cheap insurance for your 2005.5-2008 2.0T FSI! Riding between the lobe on your intake cam and the piston of your high pressure fuel pump, this cam follower is subject to much stress and wear, especially on older models that came without any kind of anti-friction coating. It is not uncommon for the 'hat' of the follower to wear through completely, requiring the replacement of the intake camshaft and possibly the high pressure fuel pump as these parts then slide together in ways never intended. Because of these failures, we recommend checking and replacing these followers every 60,000 miles on 2.0T FSI engines.
A brand new VW/Audi part, this follower is the very latest OEM revision and includes a DLC coating on the wear surface.
