DBest, he works at a dealership so I'm sure he plans to hear it directly and without some of the information filtering that occurs when the public is informed of things.

Your service manager wont be able to acurately tell you when parts are coming, your best bet is asking parts, the part number is 06J145220A


Edit - not sure if that is for a single clip or a bag of a few, the TSB makes it sound like it's for one vehicle but it's $75 for that part number so I'd hope it's a few lol

I had our parts manager force order 5 of them, we'll see what happens. I'll update when some show up. From talking to him he doesn't think VW will just send them out to all the dealers, it'll be ordered like any regular part and the dealer will choose to stock them or not.

Wastegate clip

I just called VW in Sayville NY. They said they can't order the part simply be ause of the TSB. The service manager said in all likliness the car will need to be diagnosed by a tech then the part would be ordered. I would then need to bring it in again to have the part installed. I told him it is making the noise since day 1. I think I will wait until the parts are out there. I can't waste two days.

thats probably the best way to do it, honestly. Just wait till you know the parts are hopefully out there , then yes, a tech has to confirm you actually have a problem, then they will fix it.

Thanks! I should have read the previous posts from the VW tech who explains the difference between recalls and TSBs.
I can't wait to hear just the turbo spooling and whoosh sans the rattle.
