According to a Canadian guy on Facebook, he purchased one:


Useful info that 👍thank you sir!

A guy on the Seat Cupra forum has also purchased one with the ‘L’ part number for their Formentor. The dealer told them it’s not categorised as the official replacement and the service manager advised against fitting it.

Presumably if an owner went against that advice and there was an issue as there was with some of the original covers (i.e. a fire in the engine compartment), then they’d have no recourse against VW / Seat / Cupra / VAG for damages.

The ‘L’ part number covers can’t be faulty else they wouldn’t be selling them, so doubt the Cupra owner is running any risk tbh.

I know my new Tiggy doesn't have the same engine as the GTI / R but it's 90% the same (i.e. EA888 unit) and I took delivery of that at the end of November last year and it had an engine cover.

There has been a recall 10H9 since july 2022 where the new engine cover 06Q103925L is installed in the Golf, Tiguan , T-Roc, Arteon and Polo.
But as explained in the TPI the cover can only be installed if the engine power is not more than 180kW.

Thanks @massimo23. That explains why the guy on the Cupra Forum was told by their dealer that the engine cover wasn’t an official replacement for their car and was advised not to fit it. They have the 2.0 litre 310 ps / 228 kw engine in their car.

The MK8 GTI is listed at 180kW so we should be good to ask for the new cover?

Don’t suppose you have anything official or formal for that

So I can go down to my dealer and demand my cover. There are no active recalls on my vin when checking online

So would that be ok on GTi but not Clubsport or R then?

Only if you have the 10H9 recall you will get the new engine cover. Have you checked on the this website?

I only have the Italian version of this recall. If I am on Erwin I will download the English version.

Seems only for the GTI with 180KW or less.
