Angry 2014 Sportwagon Heater Core - second time

I had my heater core replaced in Dec 2017 at a dealer for a no heat in cabin issue. It was covered under Xtd warranty (bought from VW at purchase). I now have same problem, took to same dealer. They say Xtd warranty only authorize 2 flushes and they recommend 3. Core clogged again - estimate is $1600. Was never contacted during the first round to ask if I wanted an extra flush and says it's my responsibility. They did verbally tell me during first round that the clogged core was probably a result of the MOD (which I've heard from others) and I should never need it done again.

Advice?

VW authorizes 2 flushes? extended warranty, do this mean CPO?

What "mod" effects heater core?

thanks for posting
