Have you seen this article: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f21/balance-shaft-installation-2004-2005-passat-tdi-3007/ ? It shows a gear driven one, if you're changing balance shafts I would go with that instead of reusing the chain driven one.
Hi there,welcometomyturbodies, Is it just the PD engines that have balance shafts or just the 2litre ones or something?:)
To the best of my knowledge, most PD engines don't have balance shafts. It's the 2.0L used in the Passats and Audis that was causing the problems. VW no longer sold them in North America by the time they started switching over to the gear driven module. I think they were the same engines, just with the new module.
