2012 caddy with engine code CAYX

Post by Bigred2024 »

Does anyone know what vehicles had the CAYX engine code. My 2012 maxi life has this engine, it's a 1.6tdi. I believe it was swapped in but I don't have any info on it.

Where are you getting the CAYX engine code from? These engines were a CAY with a B, C, D or E suffix depending on power output. The caddy had a CAYD or CAYE for 102ps or 75ps output.

I got the code from the timing cover sticker, it does come up as a CAYD on the ecu. All the pictures I've seen usually the timing cover says whether it's a A, B,C,D.

That X on the timing belt cover is part of the engine number rather than the engine code. VAG started randomly putting letters in the engine numbers in the late naughties for some reason... Mine says "CAYK84767", CAY is the engine code and K84767 is the engine number. It's still a CAYD though as confirmed by the driver's door sticker, service schedule and V5. Why they couldn't have made it CAYDK84767 I don't know. It would have saved a lot of confusion...
