      Make note of the code, but I would just clear it and see if it reoccurs when the van runs poorly. You have no idea how old that code is.

      Nothing on my receipt has any brand names or part numbers (just pricing) and it's even higher than what you found (of course...that's where shops make their money on parts).

      I was hoping that after the early Mk6 TDIs they were past this but now I'm not so sure. 2011 Golf TDI here, produced April 2011 IIRC, 47K miles and...

      If the driver's side one goes, I may seek out another shop so I don't replace the whole thing. Now that I think about it, it also meant that I got a new ball joints too which wasn't very necessary...
