Looks to me someone didnt tighten that bolt to spec it got loose and bolt fell out and something moving, timing chain maybe?? Ripped it right on off..low oil pressure light is still coming on. Could it be part of the tensioner?

Looks like it could be the peice right above the chain tensioner. There is a tab on there, possible the bolt wasnt? Is that piece taken off when doing chain?

Oil pressure light is usually a symptom too. Check out this pic of TSI balance shafts. That little part at the end of the left one looks very similar.....

Yes, that does look like it.

The car still runs fine which is weird. If it was balance shaft would the car still run?
Im about to ground the oil light and trade it in while still runs

Yes it can still run depending on what gets messed up. Heres another guy with a similar problem, you can see in the pics the little bracket snapped off one of his balance shafts too. I bet if you took off the cam bridge on your car you have a nice little hole in the screen. #just2.0tsithings

There's an updated revision of the cam bridge. Do you know if they put one in when you got your timing done? Earlier ones had a weak oil strainer with a plastic shroud that broke up. Seems like this happens a lot actually and the lucky ones that screen breaks off in one piece and doesnt get clogged in anything.

Advice? Still runs good minus oil pressure. Trade in for golf r?
Could this have been left loose during timing chain?

Take it back to where you got the timing chain tensioner done and show them what you found and what you suspect it is and they might check it, or you can probably check it fairly easily. Either way, it doesn't look good, bud.

Well, its living on borrowed time. Think im going to trade it in while its still alive. Ideally i would buy a beater and rebuild the motor.
But..i am looking at getting a 2015 golf R. Any known issues with them?
Hard to beleive that peice just broke off, looks like that bolt just backed out. The flange wobbled around for awhile before snapping off.

You would need to pull the timing cover off to confirm yes.

I had the option and wifes permission to get an R. I have decides to keep my 11 and pull the motor and rebuild. I am going to buy a honda cash today for my daily.
Since i wont be in a time crunch i can study up on the engine and go from there. I had plans for this car k04 anyway and have too much invested to trade in for 4k$
Any advice or things i should be scared of? Should i pull the crank as well and put in new mains? Now that i will have another daily i can go nuts with this build.
