Glow Plug 7V
manufacturer: OEM VW
part number: N10591609 (set)
This SKU is a set of 4 OEM glow plugs
AKA steel encased ceramic tip 7V glow plug - latest update from VW for BEW engine
Can use with non-recall BEW and latest 28F6/T9 glow plug reflash update.
Also a direct replacement for the 7V glow plugs that some of these cars came with from the factory.
VW issued a service bulletin to change to 5v glow plugs (part number N10591607) and then later went back to using 7v glow plugs in a subsequent reflash (known as 28F6/T9 service bulletin).
These glow plugs (N10591609) are also compatible with the original factory ecu (without the service bulletin) along with the latest 28F6/T9 service bulletin reflash.
If you have the 5V glow plugs from an earlier version of the dealer reflash, you need the updated version of this reflash. We can help you with this (requires sending us your ecu to do it right)
We can do either software update for you (requires sending in your ECU to us) select the option above. However, we would recommend the newer update which uses these 7v plugs. We will include this update free as part of our chiptuning service when you buy a Q-loader or bench tune from us. Please order at the same time as tuning purchase. If purchased in the future, additional tuning charges will be incurred. If you decide to purchase this service you will need to send the ecu in for updating to the new version, because the update changes areas of the ecu that are not accessible using OBD tuning tools (like the Q-loader). There are a number of driveability changes in the software update, so it is well worth doing.
If you have a BEW engine, the only other place to have this update performed is the VW dealer. They will charge almost as much as a chiptune, so might as well get a more powerful car by sending us the ecu for tuning, instead!
