Another inlet manifold problem! Just hope they change it under warranty as I have had the car under a year, bought at a user approved dealership so here's hoping.

It's a big job too, labour intensive. Mine was in vw for 2 days.

Mind you, it may be because they will charge vw for labour so they'll stretch it out :whistle:

Will you have to pay for them to look at it?

I'm not doing, I have not had it 12 months so talking with vw customer relations they said it should be covered with the 12 months approved used car warranty, but the guy at the dealers said he can't say if it's covered as he does not know what's wrong with the car. So frustrating.

I've had an annoying rattle from my left rear door trim when on rough roads.
So today I removed both rear door trims and got some foam from an upholstery shop (which was free)
I then cut the foam and filled all the hollow sections of the door trim.
Once fitted back on there's no longer any flex in the panel when you push the top section.
So no more rattle and seems to have reduced road noise quite a bit.
I'll give it a week or so and if it stays silent I'll do my front doors. I've been battling rattles for a few weeks adjusting door latches lubing locks, adjusting the tailgate, adding felt for the parcel shelf to sit on, wrapping tape on the seat catches.
My doors used to creak and I tried polishing the body where it makes contact but in the end I rubbed Vaseline into the seals and that seems to have cured them for now.

After all that I gave it a wash then parked it back in its house to keep it clean.
