Default 2 micron filter addition and fix warranty

Would the addition of a 2 micron filter likely void the emissions fix warranty?
Of course VW should want us to put 2 micron filters on there as it would localize HPFP shrapnel.

Changed my fuel filter today (60,000 miles) and noticed some very small metal flakes on top of the old filter. Course the HPFP is downstream from there but still.

The HPFP is covered by that warranty. I say let it run without until that warranty is about to run out. Don't give them an excuse.

The VW service agent advised me that adding the 2 Micron filter would void the new extended warranty. The dealer is aware of the 2 Micron filter, in which they removed from my vehicle at the time of the emission fix. They told to wait until after the warranty then put it back on.

My comments in red.

Any aftermarket item you add, potentially voids your warranty on any car.

Bummer, I'd better get that tow hitch and window tint off of it before they find out

Exclamation 1 or 2Micron filter for V6 TDI engines

Hello,

I am located in the Toronto area in Canada. Is there a supplier or information on how to get one of these installed?

Thanks

Contact user "2micron" on these forums. I believe he is in Peterborough.
