The lower oil pan on your vehicle can take a beating. Normal driving conditions throughout a day can put this aluminum piece in serious danger. Hitting a pothole, bump, or object in the road can damage your oil pan beyond repair.
This lower oil pan bolts perfectly in place of the broken unit and will have your vehicle back in service quickly. Don't neglect that cracked oil pan. Another bump and it may break away, dumping your oil and causing catastrophic engine damage. Replace it now.
* This part is designed for the TSI engine only. This can easily be found on the engine cover of your 2.0T VW/Audi. It will clearly be stamped TSI or TFSI.
