RepairPal Expert Overview
The fuel rail may detach from the cylinder head of the engine and leak fuel. This could cause a fire.
Recall repairs on your Volkswagen must be performed by a Volkswagen dealership. Volkswagen will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volkswagen dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The fuel rail may detach from the cylinder head, resulting in a fuel leak. Dealers will replace the cylinder heads free of charge to resolve the concern.
