Part number trivia.

You may remember that when my original TBV failed, I replaced it with the
993 part supplied by Mac at Clair, and that the Bosch number was 0 280 142

When the 993 part failed after three weeks, I decided to go back to the Audi
part. I had my original, Bosch number  0 280 142 106, Audi part 035 133 985.
The ETKA shows the part as 035 133 985 A, "decelleration cut-off valve".  My
local Audi parts guy looked up the "A" number, got the part out, and it has
the same Bosch number at the 993 part: 0 280 142 108.

Incidently, Porche lists the part at about $5 cheaper than Audi.

I installed the new part last night, we will see how long it lasts.
