    I bought a 2010 golf tdi and I am anticipating I need to change the injectors I think these are contaminated from a failed hpfp, and possibly they were replaced by the previous owner and he didn't tell me because there are 3 different part numbers on them. I was reading the how to article on the site and it says you need to program each one to work with vcds. I have a key com interface from ross tech I have used for everything else I have worked on, usually setting timing on ahu and alh cars, this is the first time working on a newer one. Will my old one work or do I need a newer one? thanks

    Yep, you could buy a used one but it'll have to be the CAN-Bus.

    I am looking for a used one on ebay, will a MICRO CAN cable work to adapt injectors or do I need to get a HEX CAN

    HEX-USB-CAN or the cheaper Micro-CAN.
