Problems caused by UV reduction pressure leakage in Audi 01J and 01T units are common. As leakage increases, reaction time drops and pressure decreases at pulley #1 or pulley #2. Without proper control pressure and reaction timing, load on the chain decreases and slippage will occur. In other instances, the UV reduction damper pin may break causing further damage to the bore and end plug. The Sonnax oversized UV reduction valve kit 33741B-08K restores the critical hydraulic clearance between the valve and bore and prevents future wear with highly wear-resistant materials and annular grooves.
Sonnax valve body layouts provide a detailed overview of individual units making it quick and easy to determine what’s available for the specific valve body you’re working on. See all Sonnax valve body layouts.
Vacuum testing at the port(s) indicated fails to hold the recommended minimum in-Hg, or if wear is visually detected.
