the lock band on mine was already messed with, I do believe it is a 
combination of things between the screw and the injectors as I don't 
really know much of the maintenance history of the golf {I've only had 
this on a bit more than a year now} I needed it because I'm driving 500 
+ miles a week to work. New injectors glow plugs etc are in its future, 
I'm just waiting for my cash flow to improve just a bit more.
