We had this car come in and after diagnosis, it had a hole through number 2 piston. No other damage. The pistons in this car are NOT the same as regular TDI 79.46mm pistons. Every VW dealer I call and send the pics to have never seen this type. We need help on this one. I have narrowed it down to being a Federal-Mogul Nural Elastoval piston. Anybody ever run into this. This car has never been modified and was bought at a VW dealer here in Canada. Customer is 65 years old and just wants his car back on the road. If someone had a used one or would know where to get one. Piston diameter is the same on both styles of piston, but the one we have is a "shorty" and has no cutout for the oil jet. Thanks!!! Pics are attached.
