Are you sick and tired of your check engine light?

Fix your Common Rail TDI Diesel P2015 fault code now and save over $800! For thousands of drivers of Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda cars the only alternative to our repair bracket is replacing the diesel intake manifold which costs $900 or more for parts and labor. Besides the cost, replacing the CR diesel intake manifold also requires removing fuel lines which is risky. You can install our bracket in 15 minutes and save yourself a ton of money and maybe even your delicate and even more expensive fuel system.

How it works: Our P2015 repair bracket
limits the range of motion of the V157 intake flap motor to the exact same range as when your car was new. This eliminates the possibility for the flap motor mechanism to open or close too far which is the cause of the P2015 error. Our bracket is also a great preventative fix. Installing a bracket now will prevent trouble later. With this bracket in place you won't experience the wear in the mechanism and the terror code that results. Our repair kit may also clear your P2004, P2006, and P2016 TDI error codes.

International Shipping:
We can now send these internationally with tracking for only $4.99 USD to Canada, the EU, the UK, Australia and most other countries. We use discrete little padded envelopes to help reduce (and in most cases we have seen) eliminate taxes or duties for our international customers in most locations (See last picture at far right above). The envelopes are usually delivered quietly in your mail box. Delivery takes 1 to 4 weeks with 1st Class Mail but the price sure is nice, right? We also offer much faster 2-4 day FedEx shipping but FedEx will charge you brokerage fees upon delivery.

Tools Required: You can do this. The first video below shows you how. You will only need a T30 Torx screwdriver or socket to install this part.

Installation: Please watch the first video below to be able to install the part correctly. The intake flap motor must be temporarily removed to install the part correctly. Please also see picture on right side above to confirm successful install. Sides of part must be flush with top plate. If the V157 flapper motor fails to move after the bracket is installed you can pull the motor arm forward into operating range with the engine running to "jump start" it. This should clear the code almost immediately or within 2-3 days of driving.

Here is the VW fault code this bracket prevents and fixes:
DTC 2968, 18447 or 008213 - Intake Manifold Flap Position Sensor (Bank 1) P2015 - 000 - Implausible Signal - MIL ON

Brought me comfort untill buyback January 14, 2017
Reviewer: George Malina from Sugar Grove, IL USA  
I really like my 2010 A3 TDI but am planning on doing the buyback in the spring when I am past my busy season and I have more time to figure out what my replacement will be.

I was quoted $1,137 to correct the P2015 CIL error by the dealer. The thought of dumping over a grand into a car that I will be selling back to VWAG in a few months didn't sit well with me.

This was a great solution - simple enough that even an accountant can do it, the tip on tightening the spring loop was genius and the videos were excellent.

My greatest challenge was reconnecting the ball linkage. I have small hands so don't know how you all with bigger hands do it!

Great solution, great support January 10, 2017
Reviewer: Brian Mittelstaedt from Rochester, NY  
I am thrilled to say I've saved $600 by buying and having this installed on my 2010 VW Jetta TDI. At first, the P2015 returned but the support at Diesel Geek was fantastic. Their response was very fast!! Through a few emails and photos, the issue was resolved and my MIL is off! Hooray!!

This Is The Fix - Thank you December 24, 2016
Reviewer: Bill from Baltimore, MD  
CEL on for last 5 weeks, went off once for a few hours, but on again.
Dealer said fix would take 1+ day and cost about $975.
Went to AutoZone and got the P2015 readout.
Went to the TDI forums and found this fix.
Ordered the part last a week ago, came in yesterday Friday 23rd.
Watched the install video twice and installed today 24th, as shown.
Light went out immediately on first start up.
Install took about 30mins after I had all the tools ready. Hardest part was getting that air vent/assembly out to make space.
Needed a short handle racket and a T20 Torx to remove/replace the air assembly.

Drove cross town (city/hwy) and back - about 75 miles. No CEL, No problems.
Thanks- keep up the good work.

An elegant, easy repair! December 18, 2016
Reviewer: Ralph H. from Auburn Hills, Michigan  
I took my 2010 JSW TDI to the dealer for the P2015 error.  Due to it being a TDI, VW refused to repair it.  The dealer quoted me $700 and told me they were giving me a "deal".  After a quick call to Dieselgeek, I ordered the kit.  I took me 15 minutes in 22F weather to install it.  The instructions and video are spot on for the installation.  The stepper motor is functioning correctly again and no more MIL light!  Thanks Dieselgeek!
