So is this part # generic across all MC distributors, such as my 1B 10v

> Problem 1: intermittent hesitant-start to no-start when warm.
> Episodes can be separated by hours, weeks or months.
> Troubleshooting: Pulled code 2113 (= Hall sender) during
> warm, no start condition. (Hall sender tested good _statically_
> and engine started ok, well a bit hesitantly actually, after
> cool down.)
> Problem 2: Hall sender is a non-repairable part of the distributor
> which lists at $440. (Audi p/n 035 905 206 AF)
> Solution: Rod @ The Parts Connection. Bosch p/n 0 237 522 011.
> Cost $239. As a bonus, a new cap and rotor is included in the p/n.
> The sealing o-ring is there too but not the $0.01 paper gasket.
> Result: Snappy starts. Hits the first time every time. Until now, I
> would have said the Hall sender, being a solid state device, can
> be either bad or good or intermittently bad or good (due to some
> internal continuity issue) but never sorta bad or sorta good.
> Now I think "lazy Hall sender" can be added to the list of 101
> reasons why an MC engine may start but poorly.
