Default Phase 2 Emissions Recall

Has anybody else received their Phase 2 notice? I'm probably going to go with it, but just wanted to know if anybody has already gone through the Phase 2 Modification. What is it? Is it just a DPF replacement? If that is the case what is the maintenance interval for the new DPF?

[QUOTE=allenazali;5405580]what is the maintenance interval for the new DPF?
/QUOTE]
There is no maintenance interval you just run it to failure. Well if you want to be proactive you could spend the money and replace it at let's say 150k. If it ain't broke don't replace it. Kind like well I never want my starter or alternator to fail so every 5 years or 150k so I'll just replace it. But as with all things, in life, they will eventually fail. With the whole dieselgate debacle there has not been very much recorded info for a failure /replacement interval as many cars have been sold back or had failed emission components replaced by the extended warranty.

The Phase 2 is quite an extensive job lasting up to about 9 hours of work for the dealer. You get a free rental while your car is being done.

So just so I understand right, they are replacing some hardware or adding some?

Replacing DPF and (iirc) NoX filter, and adding one sensor (which requires a pipe change to add the needed bung . . . ). DPF/NoX replacements are for longevity . . .

Just got my 15 done today, dealer had it several days. They will provide a rental if you need one. There is suppose to be another 02 sensor along with more plumbing. It looks as thought the engine cover on top has been replaced.

Default I took my car in today, in Friday morning for Tues out

They gave me a nice Passat gasser, but in no way compares to having 56k on my Diesel, its all subjective, so I will say the Chevy Bolt is nice, I drive that at work. The guys didnt look to pleasent with this job, they said that the Diesel scandal really hurt sales. Im sure the monkey experiements dont help either. I just pray this DPF installation doesnt turn into napalm death.

Just a note on Phase 2 - it may be broken up into 2 different parts and done at different times. Depends on whether you owned since new or its a buy back or was never sold until Phase 1 AND what mileage the car has (cutoff depends on manual vs DSG).

So, part A is add a NOx sensor into exhaust behind exhaust flap.

Part B is replace Emissions module (AKA DPF/DOC/SCR).

Some cars will get it all, other cars will get first part now and come back later for second part.

I got a call today to pick up my 15 Golf TDI. It took 4 business days from the time I took it in. The service guys were not all smiles and I don't think it was personal. I will be happy to pick up my car. I am not sure if I should ask for a run through of what they did. I can imagine that it is not easy because you have to train maintenance people to be shop mechanics. The service at DTLA is above fair, and if my car keeps running, I have no reason to complain.

The car itself has been good to me 56k something miles. I am thinking about replacing my tires at 60 or 65k. AC runs like a champ. Life is good.

This is correct. Mine is a stop sale new 2015 Beetle tdi, DSG. It just went in for the Phase 2 fix and got the new sensor, the pipe to install it in and a software refresh to make use of it. At 9500 miles currently I will have to go back at some point and get the second part B done.

Ask someone who has done a turbo on these cars, how hard it is to get that DPF out. At about 9 hours warranty time and figuring it always takes longer than that, I can see why to plan on it taking a couple days.
