Hi everybody!

I noticed a noise from the bottom of the car and I did some visual inspection to check where it was coming from, I found that the insulation plate in between the exhaust and the bottom of the bodywork around one of the fixation points was broken around the nut that holds the insulation plate.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with the VW garage to show the problem and fix it.

Has anybody had the same problem that my car has? If yes, what did the garage did?

Thank you in advance!

Do you mean the heat shield? Common problem by the sounds of it, there is another thread about it. Mine was picked up on my service and they replaced it under warranty. They said I probably damaged it on a pothole.

Yes, the shield, it looks that is made up to a budget, it is a very thin lair of metal, to be honest I was dissapointed when I saw how thin it is... not to the VAG standards.
