Intake Manifold Drive Ball (VR6)

This part replaces the white plastic part that attaches to the actuator arm shown with the red arrow in the attached picture. The OEM part is made from injection molded nylon and becomes very brittle in the engine heat. Of course VW/Audi will not sell you *JUST* this part, you would have to buy a whole new drive unit for big bucks and get a bunch of stuff you don’t need.

This part makes a great upgrade when installing these other great parts :
VR6 Intake Manifold Bushings
Billet Drive Link Arm

Our part will also cost you about 1/3 what VW/Audi charge for their plastic drive unit (and the OEM plastic part is NOT part of their repair kit). This one is a no brainer!
