When lifters fail you can begin to hear louder clicking sounds from the engine meaning it is time to replace them. These hydraulic lifters are direct fit, original equipment replacements for the TDI Pumpe Duse engines with code BEW, BRM, BHW. They should be replaced as a complete set at the same time. Sold each, 8 per vehicle.
If your TDI lifters are failing, it is a sign of much larger problems with your cylinder head. Check out our new and remanufactured cylinder heads below to save you from headaches further down the road. The hydraulic lifters are operated by oil pressure, make sure you are using oil that meets VW505.1. This will make sure your TDI engine is well protected and lubricated for a long life.
