Update - still waiting for VW to release a fix for this TPI. (2059521/2). Was hoping to get this sorted at the same time as my service next month, but been told by local dealer that TPIs can take years to fix (?!)
I dont think thats accurate but anyway keep us updated.
I got my turbo replaced in warranty.
Rattling on idle/ cold start gone (at least for now..)
Rattling when accelerating still continues.
Possibly gearbox issue like rav mentioned before but it appears there is no chassis recall or anything regarding this issue for my up gti.
Everything is smooth (clutch, lever, changing gears-feel ) except for that rattling..
What exactly is "a harmless harmonic vibration of the meshing gears "?
Gear pairs that are "meshed" are under strong forces when you are driving - in what way can they harmonically vibrate, and how come millions of other Up/Mii/Citigo owners aren't getting that all the time too?
Hello , happy holidays and happy new year to all !
Sadly nothing from dealer. Well its kinda expected.
Gear mesh vibration is a good alternative to "Well we dont know whats going on , just say some bullsh*t and get rid of him "
Search will continue after holidays.
I am starting to think that the culprit is the soundaktor. Especially when on 6th gear and trying to accelerate hard at about ~2k rpm the whole dash rattles. Its really bad.
After googling how this god **** thing works maybe is the cause of my problem. (I hope )
Its only on full throttle ,even at about 3/4 throttle everything is fine.
Mine is a MY19 , guess i can turn it off completely with OBDeleven when it arrives or just plug it off to test before goes to (another) dealer again.
