Yesterday got out of work to find my CEL has come on...awesome! The manual says ease off throttle and make your way to a garage... great! Second trip to dealer in a month, only 1400mi.
The cel stayed on all last night, had to run errands and restarted the car 3 times throughout, stayed on.
This morning get up for work and cel is gone.
Will dealer be able to read what it was?

Car drives soundly other than what sounds like a somewhat louder than expected fan whir/whistle coming from the a/c vents when climate control is on.
The only popping was my blood vessels when I saw the cel come on last night.

Maybe. It depends on what it was. some reset, others leave a fault code. Always best to drive it straight to the garage and leave it idling until they can put put an OBD reader on it to pull the code.

In deference to what Korab said above; As I understand it, all OBDII cars will store a log of faults. If they've self-reset they will come up as "Not Currently Present" in the scan, but the code should still be stored.

As posted in a different thread on this forum, I am the second to see what appears to be crystallized urea from a small leak, so I wanted to include it in this sticky thread.

This is apparently the DEF injector port, which is located adjacent to the north-west corner of the engine cover (when viewed standing in front of the car).

WiszMaster, who first noted this, had his DEF injector port and feed hose replaced around 12/5. He hasn't yet reported whether the problem is gone or not.

I'm not sure as to the severity of this problem, but I'll be calling my dealer tomorrow to see what they say and hopefully have it addressed. I will report back on my experience. I would encourage everyone else with a Mk7 to check their cars.

Total newbie question, so please go easy on me... :-) I searched in the forums, but I was unable to locate any kind of basic list of things to check for before taking delivery on the MK7 TDI; I'm finally taking delivery of my TDI SEL this week, and want to be sure I look over any common issues and have them fixed before I drive off the lot. Below is what I've gathered from this thread...

- Dripping rear washer nozzle
- Fuel door mis-match on colors
- I’ve read somewhere to check that the doors align properly
- MDI cable for iPhone 6 should have a blue or green collar
- Hockey pucks used for shipping removed from springs
- This may not be apparent upon delivery, but keep an eye out for leaks on the DEF injector port

Any other suggestions, or items, of things to look for when I pick it up?

Thanks!!

Other than the visual obvious , issues come up after you've put a few thousand miles on your new car.
Just go through all the controls inside the cabin and make sure they all work properly.
The dripping rear washer jet is a known issue and there is a TSB for it it the US anyways, fuel door mismatch that's one to take up with the dealer itself as they may or may not decide to repair that (I was promised a new one repainted but yet to see it)
crystalizing of the DEF you won't see right away during pickup

I focus on paint and body. The rest can be fixed or lemon lawed.

Excellent, thanks!! I'm stoked - first VW and first diesel! Just waiting on the dealer's call to find out when I can come in. You'd think after waiting over 3 months, I'd be used to waiting by now - but it's worse knowing it's local and not being able to get it. Ugh...

Be prepared for the new door not being an exact match either. The fuel door is plastic and takes paint differently than the metal body panels. largest issue is still the metallics, which is why the silver looks the worst. You are also now working with a different batch of paint that may or may not match your original batch. The "proper" way to fix this would be to have a body shop custom match what is actually on your car. however, this may also be the worst option long term since the body shops do not use OEM paints.

You sir are correct and I explained to the service manager that this should have been looked at during R&D phase prior to production not after the sale.
They've ordered a new door and custom match to body paint and yes the metalic are completely off.

Has anybody heard about that VW recall #24Bi? It definitely includes 2015 Golf but I'm wondering if it includes TDI variety.
