VW Water pump recall

VW Water pump recall

Today we are looking at the Volkswagen GTI Recall for leaking water pumps. This recall applies to 2011-2014 VW 2.0t GTIs. At this time there is no recall on other 2.0t VW models.

VW has issued a service action aka recall on the MK6 GTI. The issue they are having is the water pump can develop a leak. We are inspecting the water pump to see if it is the most current part number. If it is not, we are replacing the pump.

Join me today as we discuss:

  • The 19k5 Recall
  • How this water pump fails
  • What action the tech takes on the GTI Recall
  • The other VWs this recall applies to
  • What to do if you have paid for a replacement water pump
  • Most current GTI water pump 06J-121-026-BG
  • Other parts replaced on the GTI water pump recall
  • and more

Hey everyone. Today we are looking at more Failed Volkswagen Parts. This video is about how VW water pumps fail. We are specifically talking about the water pumps driven by a timing belt. I have done a video about how the CCTA water pumps fail, if you want to check that out. The timing belt driven water pumps were very common just a few years ago. There are also serpentine belt driven pumps that will fail in similar ways.
