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

  • Other parts replaced on the GTI water pump recall
  • and more

    I have a 2011 GTi with a leaking water pump. I can’t find any information online regarding this recall. VW’s website doesn’t list it, and when I called the dealership, they had no idea what I was talking about. This blog is the only thing referencing it I can find. Is there any more info? Thanks.
