Golf 6 GTI - Wastegate rattle fix - Who wants one?

Postby racingfreak » Thu Jul 14, 2011 11:30 am

As the title says, Mooloo can source these from the USA...but if we only order 1 the shipping is gonna kill!!!

Almost all Mk6 GTI's suffer from this and VWSA refuses to do the fix

If we can get a couple of guys Mooloo might be able to get us a better price, so lets start a list...cost your looking at between R700 and R800

Pimped from GolfMk6 forum

"Rattling Noises from Engine Compartment Area or Exhaust System" on 2008-2012 CCTA and CBFA engines. "Test drive the vehicle to duplicate and familiarize yourself with the noise. Noise can typically be duplicated by driving up a moderate incline, beginning at 35 mph in 4th gear (manual or automatic transmission) and accelerating through the RPM range of 1800-3000 RPM under moderate to heavy throttle. Obey all local traffic laws. " The explanation for the noise is "Because of exhaust gas pulsations the wastegate flap and actuator rod vibrate at the introduction of boost pressure."

The fix has been talked about in the past. Initially VW had techs put a small wheel weight on the actuator rod to determine if the noise was from there. At that point they started working on a fix, a handful of cars had a part installed by a QTM as it was not available to order. The fix worked and now it's out and readily available, it's a simple metal clip that goes on the waste gate rod part # 06J145220A

This is what the clip looks like

This is what the clip looks like installed

Some people are having a hard time getting dealers to perform this TSB and would prefer to just buy the clip and install it themselves and have asked for a How To on installing it..... install is stupidly simple and requires nothing more than a 16mm wrench but here you go.

I don't get that. So you take your car in complaining about the noise, can even point out the TSB and they say... no? How can that make sense. If the car is under warrantee surely they must cover it. Any check with Hatfield about this?

Same story with the tuktuktuktuk the bladdy climate control system makes all the time. Apparently funny noises are not actually a problem.

they should at least be able to provide the clip at a reasonable price. I'd say nothing more than about R50!!

ok just got my car back from a service
ask the tech to look into the tsb

official response:
Technical Product information
Rattling noises from engine/exhaust system
Transact No: 2021062/4
Release date: 27 Aug 2010

Customer statement / workshop findings
When accelerating a rattling or jarring noise from the area engine compartment / exhaust system occurs between 2400 and 3000 rpm.

Technical background
Because of exhaust gas pulsations the flap and rods of the wastegate vibrate at the start of the boost air control.

Production change
---

Measure
Do not repair, the noises are construction related and normal. There is no parts damage.

Warranty accounting instructions

This is no fault in the sense of warranty.


so maybe we will still get this fix?? look at the date this info was released
probably will take some time to filter through VWSA's system???
