The cars came from the factory with the rotor glued onto the distributor
shaft. Originally, the rotor was not a replacement part. You had to
exchange the entire distributor. The original distributors also had a
plastic gear. A Google search of audifans.com regarding the 200q20v
distributor rotor will turn up a number of postings regarding replacement
approaches used successfully, including installing new rotors of the OEM
design without applying glue. The process of breaking off the glued-on
rotors inspired experimenting with leaving out the glue. I don't remember
anyone reporting having problems with an unglued rotor.
