Just giving you heads up my 2016 Golf R thermostat housing and water pump started to leak at 25,000 miles. Was fixed under warranty.
This is an ongoing problem, so much so that water pumps are on national backorder. Mine was diagnosed on March 23rd, still waiting for the water pump. The first ETA was April 20th, still waiting. At least it is a small enough leak that I am able to still drive my car.
All I can say is, Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu... I'm glad you can still drive your car. Is it just oozing? No overheating? How much coolant have you added per week?
I think it's a slight leak that many times eventually crusts up.
Of course. If a problem is diagnosed during the warranty period then it will be repaired under warranty regardless of when the parts are in.You're right. I've seen some photos from people showing the nasty red/white chalky residue left behind. I need to have mine done before warranty runs out.
I wonder if you've setup a diagnostic, they confirm that it needs replacing, but the back order goes beyond the warranty period, they'll still warranty the work.
Does anyone know how that works?
Depends on the dealer and how long the repair will take.Sorry to hear that guys. I hope they have the non-plastic water pumps in the '17-'18 models.
It's the hassle taking off from work a few hours, driving to the dealer and having no car for the day, etc. Do most VW dealers give you a loaner when your car is in for warranty repairs?
