In Topic: Clutch & Dealing with VW cust Service

25 November 2020 - 01:35 PM

The only thing we have ever seen be covered is the dual mass flywheel that is prone to failure. There was one report here of the clutch grenading and taking out other bits, but I can't recall if it was under warranty to begin with. the reason they are telling you that there will be a cost to investigate is to cover them should the failure be your fault. One would hope that if it is a warranty failure, then you will end up paying nothing. I think itis smart of them to prepare you for the worst case, rather than pull the transmission and then surprise you with a steep bill.

In Topic: do it myself: Coolant change

$200 does not sound unreasonable. While not difficult, it does take a bit of time. And coolant is toxic and must be disposed of safely. Let’s see, raise vehicle, remove splash pan, disconnect lower rad hose, drain, reconnect hose, refill, heat cycle to ensure reservoir is full. Dispose of old coolant. By time all is said and done, it’s at least an hours labour, hoist time, coolant, taxes. so there is about $200.

And it all comes down to: how valuable is your time?

In Topic: Turbo oil leak.

Depends on how bad the leak is. The return is not under pressure, but if it leaks onto something hot like the manifold, then a fire can occur. If the leak is bad and you don't check your oil, you risk a low oil issue.
