Was just thinking that. Why fix if it's not broken.

Just had a chat with vw customer service online. If you have previously paid for this service out of pocket you can submit a copy of the repair order and proof of payment for reimbursement.

They said just send that stuff to vwcustomercare@vw.com and they will get it taken care of.

interesting...does that mean if we don't want to go to the dealer we could do to an independent mechanic, get them to replace the water pump and get reimbursed?

You probably could, but why not go to the dealer who offers as 12 month/12,000 mile warranty on parts and labor. If you go to an indy you'll have just the parts warranty and be responsible for labor all over again if it fails.

So is this different than like the intake manifold extension to 120k miles?

I don't think anyone is stupid if they do it now rather than later. We all make different choices.

While at the dealer for an oil change today I was told my 2013 falls under the water pump campaign. I elected not to do it at this time since it isn't leaking. I will have them do it at a later date.

2014 GTI and I show up


Start Date

08-06-2015


Description

The coolant pump may develop a small leak over time.


Remedy

Your authorized Volkswagen dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the coolant pump in your vehicle.

Currently at 19k had it replaced at 15,874 and it was the New 06J-121-026-BG version. So I don't plan on having it done just yet.

I'm doing it ASAP as I'll be taking a 500 mile road trip in a few weeks. Don't need the water pump deciding to go out on me in the middle of it. And it's free, so why wouldn't you?

This.

My 2014 is on the list. I had my initial pump replaced ~4k miles ago. I've already made an appointment for the service campaign since I have a BB pump.

Even though my current pump is functioning perfectly well right now, it might only be a matter of time before this pump craps out. I'd much rather control when/where the pump gets serviced rather than sitting on the roadside during the middle of the night waiting for a tow to an unknown dealership. Of course, that's assuming the current generation pump is less prone to a botched installation.
