    EGR leak

    Hi guys,

    Just been checking the car over and noticed a small amount of oil leaking from the egr valve from two holes either side, I know this is a relatively common problem caused by a number of things.

    I have a 3 month parts warranty with VAG and was wondering what the chances of a replacement egr was, has anyone claimed on this part before or am I likely to get fobbed off (Its working correctly, its meant to leak) type answer ?

    Hardly ideal having oil messing up the engine bay, serious or not !

    Cheers,

    Ryan.

    Well went and dropped my car round this morning to get some things put right, they replaced the EGR valve no quibble and sorted an electric window that was inop
    As I drove off the forecourt feeling chuffed, I then noticed a "tap tap "noise coming from a wheel, a stone I assumed ??
    Checked it once I got home and it turned out to be a bloody screw puncture I know this has happened at the dealer as the screw is a torx head type and there is one missing from inside the trim exactly the same !

    So back to the dealer again
