Coil packs + draining power steering fluid
Posted 09 July 2012 - 21:24
I've searched for he answers to these questions but haven't been able to find what I'm after.
First of all, I would like to get my coil packs changed under the recall, but am not sure if mine are original parts or not. I assume VW don't use Bosch coil packs? How do I tell if they are the original ones or not?
Secondly, I want to drain my power steering fluid so that I can make sure it has all the correct stuff in it, but am unsure where to drain from. Can anybody point me in the right direction to correctly drain my power steering fluid?

Ok that's great, thanks. Sounds easy enough. Is it easy to get to?

if the part number is not there they are not genuine (so go get some vag ones off ebay and swap in)
a simpler way to do fluid is disconnect return feed and put into bottle. Then run engine for 4 seconds at a time to pump out old fluid while keeping header tank topped up with new.

If I had to hazard a guess I would say that one of them is genuine, the rest aren't. One had a code on it that ended in a 'K' (I assume this is an original), one had no marking on it at all, but did have a letter engraved on to the metal, one was a Bosch coil and the final one I have pictured below, I assume this is an aftermarket replacement?
This leaves me with two final questions, am I right in thinking every single coil, if original, will have the same markings on it? Finally, does anybody have some original coils hanging around they don't want?
