Hi all,

Just picked up an 2010 A6, 3.0 TFSI. It has an issue with the swirl flaps on the inlets, flagging up code P2007/2008. Stuck closed. (Don' worry, I knew about the code when I purchased and knocked 2k off the asking price to account for worst case scenario of new manifolds).

My question is, these are pretty simple, vac operated valves, so surely there is not too much to go wrong. First thing I will do is check the vacuum units work etc, then go from there. I am suspecting as it is flagging both banks, it may just be a vacuum leak.

However, I am curious to know, are new manifolds the only answer if the units themseleves are kaput, or has anyone had any joy changing/repairing the vac units. I found this,

Which appears to list them seperately. My first experience with the 3.0 TFSi, but have had various 4.2s, 2.7 t and 3.0 TDI car before, so not too phased by the newer engine. Any advice from more experienced 3.0 fettlers welcome.
