    Just want to share what I found in a Caddy Tdi from -08

    Engine light lit
    Fault code on fuel temperature sensor (G81) - P0183
    The sensor did not cost much so I changed it - same fault code
    I already had purhaged Fluke PRO3000 thanks to the tip in here and got it to use.....

    This is what I found under the air filter box where the sound got silent on one of the wires to G81:

    The arrows points at two places:


    The worst injury:


    ...was found here:


    And this:








    Thanks!

    Aww, can’t see your photos. Have you embedded them correctly?

    *Edit* You may have to add ‘.jpg’ after your imgur tags...

    At first I thought rodent damage; but then I thought the nicks in the insulation looked too round and too regular. So that corrogated protective conduit - doesn't?!

    I have repaired hundreds of similar... Golf 5, Passat B6, Caddy, Octavia, A3, Leon etc.
    It's because after 2000. VAG started to save money on insulating tape. No tape where wires are in corrugated tubes...

    Yes - right Zenerdiode and MartinX
    In my book, these are tighten too tight (dont know what to call them in English so I drew the red ring on it) and yes not much electric tape under the plastic tube:

    Im going to take in our neighbors Caddy from 2008 and see that all looks good.
    Martin - do you see this happening in diesels only or in petrol cars too? Do I need to check our Passat from 2000?

    WOW. That's pretty severe wear.

    Broken wires there is a pretty common thing - especially on diesels. The engine mounts go soft after a short time too, and the engine wobbles even more.

    The wear there is interesting - I thought normally the conductors simply break from flexing.
