yeah, im also on the side of don't mess with it.

Often times, those who ARE modded, etc, have had no issues with the water pump, and then stock cars with 4k, 10k, 15k, etc - have them blow. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason, so I think messing with it may not be the best if you haven't had any issues, but who knows - maybe ask around and see what the experience is with other enthusiasts and tuners in your area.

Agree, I have 2 early cars with over 100k on the original pump. I wouldn't worry about taking a road trip.

It's not the replacement parts that are failing. I will give you a hint: "certified" mechanic.

FYI, received my campaign reimbursement check within the last week or so. VW reimbursed me for most of the cost of the work...I think like 30 something bucks short. I assume the difference is what I would've paid in taxes...?

Score one for VW, I guess.

Regardless, just putting it out there that they are actually sending checks out.

ONLY..... if your VIN# shows up in their database as a vehicle that is affected. Another BS from Volkswagen

Yeah, I'm on my 4th waterpump now, and my VIN wasn't part of recall campaign. Just saying.

So get in my car and start it, the MIF display says check coolant level, pop hood no coolant in reservoir. Drive 2 miles to dealership, car barely came up to 190 temp, then started to go back down as I assume from day 1 it's done this, thermostat opening and closing?? Anyways at dealership and getting water pump replaced...was it ok to drive it after it said check coolant level? It only came up to 190 normal operation temperature and it was literally 2 miles.

Waterpump gave up on Wednesday at 38500 miles, towed the car to the nearest VW dealership on Friday. My vin was on recall list, so got a new waterpump, all done in 6 hours.
Dealership also didn't seem to care if I had any mods done to my car

They get reimbursed either way, it would be bad business to bring up mods over this.

Wow don't mean to bump an old thread but didn't get a response the first time I posted on this which was exactly 6 months ago today. Well posting again because I have to have another pump replaced AGAIN!!!!!!!! 6 months later. WTF, I've only put app 1600 miles on in that time. Came home and let my car idle for a bit as I Califonia dusted it off before I pulled it into the garage, not sure how long it idled for, not really the point, 10 minutes or so I guess, now it's been in the 90's here but not the point either I suppose, but I smelled coolant so I got in and sure enough dash said check coolant, not sure if that light was on the whole 10 min or so but I popped the hood and reservoir tank was empty. Shut it off and was just awe struck by thinking "you mean to tell me, 6 months, 1600 miles is all these pumps can handle!" So upset now. Love my car but really frustrated. Just hope nothing else is wrong with it.

At least it should be covered under warranty.
