    H2Sport was working on a complete overhaul of the cam and follower (http://h2sport.ca/) to a roller-cam follower (which is what Audi should have used to start with) but they haven't released any pricing or any further details for quite some time.

    I think, they actually released some pricing on vwvortex and there's a thread on there where peeps were organizing a group buy...

    yeah i remember the VW guys talking about it. Think it was about $400 for the parts. But labor is going to be a pain. Since you have to pull the cam.

    People were saying that it would be good to do this job when you replace the timing belt. Labor cost at least. I know there is a thread floating around.

    Flying- no prob. bro. Not sure if that follower will be better since the new followers supposedly are made with a harder coating or something.

    Based on mileage and "time", I am still under the original factory warranty. My dealer has performed some engine related work under warranty for me despite mods.
    With that said should the dealer fix my cam and follower under warranty, despite my stage 3 kit?

    Well if you got a APR HPFP, the dealer may not replace the cam follower under warranty.

    The cam follower isn't that expensive in the grand scheme of things. Just pick it up at the dealer then get an independent shop to replace it for you.

    Already replaced it. That's not the problem. The cam was damaged according to the technician at the local APR Dealer.

    Had mine changed today at TAI VW & Audi, over here on Oahu. I was dreading the worst, but it looks good. The peace of mind is worth getting it checked. Thomas, the owner of the shop, was saying the automatics usually look better, since they don't rev as high.

    I just picked up a new cam follower and didn't realize how small these are. What makes the follower so expensive for a small hunk of metal?

    Because that little hunk of metal can destroy your hpfp/cams in a matter of weeks.

    Never seen a cam follower wear down like that as it's showing visible signs of wear in one direction only because of the cam lobe. The cam follower is suppose to be able to rotate around so allowing it to wear out evenly.

    Does it say anywhere in our owners manuals that this is an issue that we should be looking at? My car went in for a 60k mile service. I explained that I had an instance of power loss a few weeks back that has not occurred again. They checked everything and told me that the car was "too hot" to open up so they did some sort of pressure test and they determined that my FPFP, Cam, and follower are shot. Meanwhile I do not have a CEL and the car drives fantastic.

    I will be placing a call to Audi

    Just finished replacing the timing chain and cam follower on a buddies 05.5 A4. Only mod is an APR stage 1 chip and piston DV. (90K miles)

    His cam follower looked almost brand new and this guy is lucky if he changes his oil every 7K miles. (and he drives like an idiot)

    I've replaced mine every 20K and both times I've replaced it, there's always been at least a little bit of wear on the follower and I'm anal about changing my oil every 3-4K with Motul.

    Pretty useless story, I know, I just wonder what causes some to wear faster than others aside from the obvious scenarios.

    Although I knew about this issue, and I've repeatedly read the warnings about checking the follower, I knew that if something were to happen, it would get covered under my CPO warranty; So I was lazy about it. Well, I have about 85,000 miles on my '05.5 and everything was going well until the other day when I suddenly noticed some shuddering when I tried to accelerate. Soon thereafter (really soon, like a day or so), I had literally no acceleration and I knew right away that something was wrong with either the fuel pump or my cam even though there was no MIL. I started her up the next day to take her to the dealer, and lo and behold, the dreaded light in my dashboard was on. Took her in, they kept my car for a couple of days, provided me a loaner, and when I came back to pick her up, I had:

    06F-109-101-B Camshaft
    06D-109-229-B Chain (What is this for?)
    06F-127-025-K Fuel Pump
    06D-109-309-C Cam Follow(er)
    23 Screws
    10 Bolts
    And an Oil Change =P

    I also got my left side HID bulb and ballast replaced.

    Total damage?
    $53.50

    Apparently, there's an 82341 code for Fuel Pump
    The Technician's notes are funny. "Found high pressure fuel pump and bucket faulty // Camshaft wiped out also... remove valve cover"
    Anyway, this CPO warranty has paid for itself a few times over now. I have had so much work done to this car in the past 2.5 years that I've had it.
    It's over in 15K miles though, so gotta be more proactive about preventative maintenance from this point on. Gonna be checking that follower at every oil change.

    CPO warranty is the only way to go with our cars. Glad, it was resolved for you with minimal financial implications.

    And those that didn't pursue getting CPO, get these things checked before the warranty expires.

    Checking the cam follower everytime the oil is changed is a bit extreme IMO. My cam follower was "okay" before the warranty expired, so that was about 80,000km on it but replaced anyways. The new cam follower was checked again 8-9 months when the intake valves were cleaned and showed some wear, but very little wear and should be good for a couple of years at least. I don't plan on going that long w/out checking again, plan on checking it again early next year.

    Mod please move to Official Cam Follower thread in B7 Tech

    I got my cam follower changed in my 2007 A4 2.0T at Steve's European Auto in Waterford, MI. By far one of the best mechanics I have ever been to. All around great people to work with.

    Here is my cam follower at 34,000 miles. Nearly all the black coating is gone off it.

    It is smooth to the touch, but I am glad I changed it out when I did. One more oil change and it may have been too late. Anyone who has been on the fence about this or made excuses to "do it next week," I highly suggest you just do it before its too late.

    Finally got around to changing the follower. I have 35000 miles and been chipped for about 15000. Here's what it looked like.

    I'm at almost 80,000 miles and the car drives perfectly. But all your posts have me petrified that something could happen any moment. I have the CPO warranty, and I want this taken care of asap, but my dealer won't touch anything unless theres a CEL or some sort of code, and if there isn't anything wrong they're gonna charge for time. What should I do? How can I be sure my cam follower won't go anytime soon if i don't have a CEL?

    Money talks. You tell them to check it. If the cam is fine you pay for the labour. If the cam is excessively worn out then everything is covered under warranty. Simple as that, they should be able to agree with that as that is what I did.

    Small cost for peace of mind I say if you don't want try and open things up to check yourself.

    This is what it looks like at 37k miles, this was CPO'd at about 24k miles with a dealer TSB who replaced it then, so this is after about 12k miles with Stage 2 Revo:



    On a side note, I had my local tuner KMD Tuning replace it, they only charged me like $48 for labor, which is well worth it! The A cam still looked smooth.

    Not sure if this has been answered or not, but when checking the cam follower, should the O ring be replaced on the fuel pump? My CPO expires in about 3 months, so I need to get on and check this. Just wondering if I should order a new O ring before checking it.

    My dealer is retarded, they won't replace/touch anything unless there is a CEL or if they get some code, which makes me think that even if i did pay them to "check" they'd just tell me everything is fine because they're probably only gonna look for codes and might not find any. Quite a predicament as I approach 80,000 miles and have little time left on my CPO warranty. I even called all the previous dealers that have ever serviced my car to see if it has already been done, but it hasn't.

    It is my understanding that the latest "k" revision fuel pump is also installed when they replace the cam follower under CPO warranty, which is something I'd like to take advantage of. i want to get the GIAC HPFP program, but don't want to flash my car until I can get that fuel pump and have the AWE fuel pump upgrade installed.

    Just tell them to replace it then and pay for the parts and labour. It's a small price to pay compared to having to pay for a new HPFP, lobe, etc., as that will run you a couple thousand dollars.

    Or you can try going to a different dealer. I don't know what your options are up there in Buffalo, but I'm sure there's more than one around the area. If they refuse to even check it, with you offering to pay for the time to do so, then you need to find a new dealership anyway. I guess I just got lucky that mine conked out before the CPO warranty ran out. You could try going to a local mechanic, pay him to take it apart to have a look at it. Take pictures, bring it to your dealer and show them proof if it is worn out.

    Woo! Guess who is not under warranty with a blown cam follower, damaged cam, and a damaged APR HPFP.

    I guess the purchase of a new cam, HPFP, and follower is in order. Along with a nice labor bill for RSW!
