Hey everyone! It is Tuesday, so we are looking at failed VW parts. Today we are diving into the 2.5L vacuum pump leaking oil. Last week we looked at how a 2.0T rear main seal fails. The funny thing is, this vacuum pump leaking is often mistake for a leaking rear main seal. For a list of all the failed part shows, check out “Failed VW Part Videos” on YouTube.
