Found in a 200tdi oil pan?

I'm a bit concerned I found this in the oil pan.
I had just run it and it ran fine.
Any ideas what this is?

Is it metallic or non-metallic? If metal, is it ferrous?

Its a lash cap. Better adjust your valves. Probably need to replace all the lash caps now and then adjust.

Thanks,
Can these get all the way to the bottom without doing damage?

Do they have another name? I can find it in the Parts book or manual.

Funny to see that today. Yesterday I opened up a 200 that was running but not well and it was missing 5 of those "lash" caps. Someone had adjusted it to run better I'd guess. Now the valves are all peened and new caps will not fit on. Valves are going to be a pain in the arse to service..........another "tune - up" gone bad....

Hey Matt,

Sorry for the slow reply.......I only get to see a computer for a few minutes a day......
RN has the caps use the part # John just gave you. If you have issues finding them give me a shout as I have some in stock.

I never use the OEM part anymore. Just get some hardened lash caps for an air cooled VW engine. Much better part then stock. I do not believe the stock parts are hardened enough.

Good time to upgrade your valvetrain. The VW parts are like 10.00 most places.

If you do not have a VW speed shop in your area just search vw hardened lash cap on ebay

Jim do you find most of the oem parts to be inferior? Are there particular aftermarket parts makers that you find better and those you stay away from?

No I do not find most of the OEM parts inferior.

But lash caps have long been a weak point in these diesel engines.

As another said. "I do this all day every day" So most of my experience and knowledge is hands on.

Your question "Jim do you find most of the oem parts to be inferior? Are there particular aftermarket parts makers that you find better and those you stay away from? "
Could be answered specifically in a very long diatribe by someone who uses a RAVE cd and memorazation skills to promote themselves as an expert of sorts. Thats not me. If you have a particular part in question and it amuses me to give you my take on it, I may. Beyond that, I like to get paid, because I have enough practice already.

Thanks for solving my mystery!
Now to order them and get them in!
I'm hoping they can be fitted while doing the Valve Adjustment.

I still can figure out how it got from the top down to the oil pan?

Through the oil drain of the cylinder head. More then likely you will have others up in the cylinder head broken into pieces as well. Yes they can be changed during valve adjustment. Rule of nines is best way to adjust valves. have described this before here. You can search it if not familar.

All the lash caps seem to be in place, and they appear to be smaller.
I was wondering if maybe it could parts of this?
