Replace or have rebuild... it doesn't matter as the wear parts are 
replaced with new anyway, then bench tested to factory spec.

You can probably even get by just replacing the nozzles yourself without 
pop testing. It is really easy to do.

There are a write or two at TDIClub and/or Kerma detailing how to do this.

Previously, I had to downshift to 4th gear, run full throttle and put out a smokescreen with my '91 TD.
