I highly doubt you'll get anywhere with a warranty claim. By the same token what if anything was stolen from your car, wheels, wiper blades for example. Unfortunately it's just one of those things that happen and the part has been stolen to order. Your going to need a new wiring loom if it's all been cut so £600 sounds a bit cheap. It doesn't need calibrating, i think that's just your dealer being over cautious. Once the new radar has been fitted if it doesn't throw any errors then it won't need adjusting. As for retrofitting the new style I suppose it's possible if you have lots of £££ but when I looked into it the parts alone were upwards of £1500 before even trying to fit and the entire front end needs to come off.

Golf mk7 / Re: 2nd service.
« Last post by Brenbo on Today at 07:29 »
I ensured my car was wash sufficiently enough to remove all grit etc, on the outside of my car so my dealers 'scratch & vac' didn't damage the finish of my paint work if they decided to do it without my knowledge.  Also it will be a very good plan to insist you don't want a Cabin Refresher as it absolutely stinks.   

In regard to the time it takes, my dealer told me it would take longer for my 2nd Service as I had a Courtesy Car and as a rule they will take longer to do cars where the customer has a courtesy car.  So if you are in a rush and want your car back sooner don't get a courtesy car.

Hiya. Re warranty claim. I phoned Volkswagon UK customer service on Friday. They have opened a case and I was told to expect a call this coming week. I based it on the design change on the Mk7.5 Now secured in place. So did Vw know the previous design was poorly secured.. I will update on this topic

I always make sure they write on the job card "DO NOT WASH"

It pisses me off when they check the rear wiper on the health check as I never use it.

I have the same issue on my rear shocks and my dealer dismissed it.
It is now out of used car warranty, so I am thinking of fitting a pair of Bilsteins on it, there's a few threads about them on here curing the problems. However with DCC it is more involved, but then I don't have that.

I was googling the other day and found this website

If I didn't have DCC I'd be running with the Bilstein B12 kit. I had to replace one of my shocks a couple of months ago because it was leaking.

Hi, My creaking got worse last couple of weeks. I looked at the suspension components and where I could see where they pivoted front and rear I sprayed with Silicon.

Result is no more creaking. I suspect it will be a temporary fix but if it works for a while then at least I know how to resolve.

Cosmetic & bodywork matters / Re: Wheel Refurb or Buy New???

You could get them refurbished and painted and hopefully the corrosion would not return .Or get a new set and sell the old ones on e bay …..

I had one of my wifes  wheelsl refurbed paid by the dealer when we bought the car but the corrosion returned 9 months later so I got a new wheel at a good discount.

I don't know if this is possible but could you make a warranty claim for a new one stating VW have not made it secure and it has been pinched ? I on reflection think it may not be successful though.
