I just started a recent thread about this. As others have just said anything that causes a check engine light to come on is covered under the extended warranty. I had the emissions fix done at the end of September 2018, and a few weeks later got the code for a faulty intake manifold flap. VW replaced the entire intake manifold free of charge.

My dealer tried to pull that one on me when my intake manifold flappers starting causing codes at 74,000 miles, and my call to VoA Customer Service went something like this: 'say, I have a question: why is my dealer wanting me to pay for something that is covered in the 8 year/80,000 mile Federal Emissions Warranty?'

Got a call back from the dealer in 30 minutes......'Mr Galindez, your manifold will be replaced under warranty...'

Your dealer knows its covered. They just want to get 2X the money.....once from you and again from VW

I have an appointment tomorrow morning. They say they have to diagnose it first. The cel is currently off. They didn't say one way or the other when I was in on Mon. The guy that takes care of that was out that day.

This is nice when you have a VCDS. Scan it first so you have evidence that a code was thrown. Don't clear it though. Take that with you printed out to insure no funny business.

Tell them to re-read the TDI Fix Brochure.

It clearly says that any failure that throws a CEL code after the fix during the "fix" warranty period is covered.

It also says that disputes will be resolved in favor of the consumer.

I'll find the links to the document and give you page numbers to reference...

Edit: Here's the link:
https://www.vwdieselinfo.com/pdf/VWC...nual_Final.pdf

Look at "Page 9" titled "Parts Covered Under Extended Warranty", last bullet point:

- The On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system, any malfunctions detected by the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system other than those related to the transmission
Thank you very very much for this info!


I am in Toronto, Canada area. My 2012 JETTA 2.0 TDI (with manual transmission) recently had this problem: A light on the instrument cluster/panel came on, and a diagnosis indicates the error P2015: Issue with the Intake Manifold, and the VW dealer where I got this check told me I need to replace this Intake Manifold, and it would cost me around $1,000 Canadian (with labour cost plus tax).



Now armed with this Extended Warranty (after my car went through emission software and hardware modification), I went back to the dealer, and sure enough, the dealer will replace the whole thing plus labour for free!:-)


So thank you again! Cheers James (Xiaolu)

It’s crazy that they replace the whole intake manifold when an inexpensive bracket solves the problem. I paid $35 for one and they’re now under $10 on Amazon.
