Audi 20V Engines that use a Glued On Distributor Rotor
Some of the Audi Distributor rotors are glued onto the distributor
shaft. In order to remove the old distributor rotor, it often needs
to be broken or crushed when removing it from the shaft using a pair

from the broken rotor particles.

the left over pieces. You need to thoroughly clean the distributor shaft
