    mine is the 103kw PD version, have they sorted the issue so the replacements won't have this fault?

    Not sure. They're an exchange part, through VW. I can only presume they've changed something internally with the solenoid to improve longevity.

    We've had a Golf GT that has done another 40,000klms since it's had an injector replaced without fault.

    thanks umai here is hoping so the issue is with the solenoid failing? Literally had no warning was running fine prior to stalling... At least it happened while I was stopped.. Should VW be doing a recall or only isolated cases?

    The problem is not unique to VWs.

    A Focus diesel with 60,000ks needed 4 injectors, $approx 1400.00 EACH.....

    The VW doesn't make the injectors, so there would be a number of car manufacturers that have a similar problems.

    The first Toyota Prados with CRD engines had problems with their injectors as well.

    I was quoted $1000 each for my Passat 103 tdi... luckily VW granted a goodwill request and replaced all 4 free of charge.

    Frustrating as I had followed the service schedule and used BP Ultimate diesel which is supposed to be the best available (in WA).

    Did you use a diesel fuel additive? I use Moreys Diesel Smoke Killer in our Golf and in T5 at every fill up, so far so good.

    Campaigns usually only involve things that could catch fire, or software updates. There is a technical bulletin out on it though, mainly to speed up the diagnosis process.
