TDI Balance shaft module

Today we are looking at more failed Volkswagen parts. This is the failure of the TDI Balance Shaft Module. This part came out of a 2005 B5.5 Passat TDI. This is not an extremely common failure, but it can be very expensive to fix. You may also hear this referred to as the Oil Pump Module.
