coil pack recall???

4 posts in this topic

Noticed all over a few other forums about 06/07 GTIs being recalled to have the coil packs replaced.

Anyone know if it is applicable to us here in the UK? Most of the threads seems to be written by people either in the states or Canada. Google 'Mk5 coil pack recall' and you’ll find any amount of them.

I just had my 07 in for its annual service this morning and nothing was mentioned, only just came across this or i would have asked.

Cheers

Having known 2 people who have had them fail on an MY06 I too would be interested in this...

Edit - Just found this

VW Ignition Coil Inspection & Replacement Program

Anyone out there work for a dealer in the uk who can verify?

When I put in my details i get notification due Jan-April 2010 although the site is US based.

Yup i get the same message - found this, again posted by US drivers

Some of you may or may not know that VW is recalling some of it's vehicles with ignition coil problems. This particular recall is quite big....well, it's HUGE.

In general 2001-2007 VW's are listed with possibly faulty ignition coils that can cause a misfire in one or more cylinders. VW has a SPECIFIC breakdown by VIN on which vehicles are affected. I will post up the most current information and list the vehicles that frequent this forum the most: GTI and Rabbit.

Do NOT contact your dealer if your vehicle is included in this vin breakdown!! Do NOT contact your dealer or vw if your vehicle is NOT included in this vin breakdown!

If you are having an engine fault, please see your dealer so they can diagnose and correct your issue, however.

Volkswagen is sending out letters for the next few months to certain groups of cars and engine types. PARTS ARE LIMITED!!! so vw will be sending out recall letters for some 01-02 passats with the 1.8T engines. This is about 90,000 cars starting today. In the coming months you MIGHT get a letter.

Model 5th VIN digit Last 6 vin numbers of affected cars

(if yours is within this range, its affected)

06 Rabbit R 083138-203626

06 Rabbit S 111903-203573

06 GTI V 017326-203635

07 Rabbit R 000430-213492

07 Rabbit S 002473-213409

07 GTI V 000001-213170

IF your car fits the criteria above, then check the coil part number.

If you have a 2.0FSI engine and your coil part number is:

06F 905 115 F

07K 905 715 D/E

06H 905 115

06D 905 115 K

06E 905 115 D/E

06H 905 115

Then your car is OK and does not need anything. If it does NOT have one of those coils, then you need the newer coil.

If you have the 2.5 engine and your coil part number is:

06F 905 115 F

07K 905 715 D/E

06H 905 115

06D 905 115 K

06E 905 115 D/E

07K 905 715 F

Then your car is OK and does not need anything. If it does NOT have one of those coils, then you need the newer coil.

My Rabbit last of the vin is 258896 and 5th vin is S. So mine is a late build 07 and has the update ignition coil already and is NOT affected.

INFORMATION ONLY. If your car is recalled, you WILL get a letter in the next few months. VW won't help you if you start yapping you found information online.

Cheers

Paul

Anyone who works for VW out there? Who can help out? Mine is effected if the above is correct.

Stands to reason that the one of the coil packs has already gone.
