Typically, the O.E.M. part is not sold alone – car dealers only sell it in a kit (P/N 077198327a) which costs around $400 per side (most cars require replacement on both sides, totaling in $800!!!)
The installation is fast and easy, simply remove the damaged part (you may need a screwdriver or pliers) and snap the end links of the new part onto the actuators. That is all!
Please Note: There are two available sizes of linkage arms [short (1″) or long (2″)]. Please choose the size appropriate for your car model, year, and/or assembly plant.
Why do you need two piece 2 pieces??
If you never changed the linkage arms and one of them is broken, probably in another it will break very quickly, because both have been subjected to the same conditions.
We recommend replacing both parts at the same time and avoid future problems.
If your vehicle has a broken link arm in the variable intake manifold system – a common problem due to the poor quality of the material used in the O.E.M. part – this listing offers you the most economical and reliable solution and is backed by a LIFETIME WARRANTY.
The Difference is in the Material Used:
These parts are made of DELRIN (an engineering polymer used in precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction and excellent dimensional stability) used in industries for automobiles, planes, boats, aerospace, etc. It is a common replacement for metal in many applications such as gears, pulleys, impellers, etc.
Note about part compatibility:
Due in some cases the same model of Audi or VW could be use the link arm 1inch long or 2inch long depending of factors how assembly plant, you will be sure which size your car need. You must measure your OEM linkage arms and select the correct length for your car, or ask to you mechanics or car dealer.
The dimension is an estimate, from center of the ball to center of the ball on the arm.
Please determine if your car has the long (2”) or short (1”) manifold link arms before you buy.

Pull regulator intake manifold Audi and VW 077198327A – 2 inches
Premium cars of concern VAG have a lot of advantages and number of disadvantages. All technicians know about the problem pull of the regulator intake manifold (077198327A) on the engines of 3,7 and 4,2. These engines are installed on the most expensive models: Audi A6, A8, in addition to Touareg and Phaeton.
Reasons to call in service for diagnostics:
sluggish acceleration, the feelings, the motor is not giving position of power, especially noticeable at low speed when start;
significantly increased the consumption of gasoline.
The cause of the malfunction:
There may be many, one of the most frequent malfunction of the regulators intake manifold Audi. Here, the manufacturer used the best model of the flap (vortex type). A vacuum regulator is connected thanks to Audi’s traction (plastic) and the lever. The plastic piece not the most reliable, not long breaks. As a result we have a broken attachment or “flying” cravings.
The lever separately, the sale will probably not be able to find, only sold a vacuum regulator audi (077198327a) as a whole, the price of which is approximately $300.
For the reason that their set of two (both left and right side), set the controls on the cars to these engines will cost $600.
Our company produces and sells a new thrust for regulators intake 077198327a. We have a kit intake manifold Touareg,
Audi A6, a8 and other prestigious cars!
Important! The manufacturer used 2 types of rods:
a short (25 mm);
long (50 mm).
Before buying, make sure that it is necessary for YOU! We produce both rods.
Recommendation: technical specialists recommend replacing these parts in pairs. It is economically feasible. If, for example, breaks one pull the intake manifold Touareg is likely to soon fail and the second one. Change two! So will be able to avoid serious problems in the near future.
The cravings that we make, is made out of Delrin polymer. It has excellent strength and low coefficient of friction. Used in aviation, as a substitute for steel products.
