    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 ! :confused:

    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 :laugh:
    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 :wtf: 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 :gun2:
