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 077198327A length 1 inch – aluminum
Common problem on VolksWagen and audi vehicles, which have engines with 8 cylinders and a capacity of 3.7-4.2 l – malfunction traction (pull) vacuum control geometry on the intake manifold.
To identify this problem, do not need to be a guru in the inner workings of a car: faulty thrust entails the failure of the dampers to the intake manifold of Audi, it will negatively affect the dynamics on small speed (a function of changing the geometry is faulty). Increased fuel consumption.
Consider the main reasons that thrust break. Let’s start with the fact that are inside the manifold tumble flaps on the intake manifold of audi, which aktiviziruyutsya through the vacuum regulator. Plastic rod, in turn, connects the lever to the axis of the damper intake manifold Audi A6 and the controller. Pull can break down from prolonged exposure to different factors over time old plastic starts to crack and eventually breaks. Often, the mounting location of the constant mechanical action breaks traction and begins to “slide”. As a result, the Audi A6 valve manifold stops in a timely manner to open and close, causing a failure in the mechanism. When buying, it becomes clear that easy to escape will not work – broken lever from the manufacturer to replace a new one will not work. Regulators geometries are sold in a complete set, and you have to buy it all – it will cost about $350-400. Note that the Audi engine and Volkswagen is equipped with two controllers and change them recommended complex – it turns out that the two elements will have to spend about $800. We are a team of professional and independently produced and distributed traction control geometry, which restores the actuator manifold audi and VW. With our accessories – rods you will be able to solve all the problems associated with the repair of the regulator geometry.
