Garage for Checking oil leak for VW Tiguan

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Need Help

I have an engine oil leak on my VW Tiguan engine compartment. I took it to Autopro and they said they need to lift the engine and see the issue. 

I dont want to take it to VW service centre because my warranty and service contract is over and they will definitely rip my wallet for diagnosing this issue.

Can you recommend any good workshop that i can take it to?

I have attached some pics . Hope it is helpful.

No need to lift the engine. Tell the garage to use UV dye and they’ll find the leak in under a minute.

So will the Auto pro guys be able to do it using UV dye?

In theory yes, but the fact that they haven’t done it already means they probably don’t know what it is. 

You can get small bottles of uv leak detector dye, they aren’t expensive. Pour it into the engine, start the engine and shine a uv torch onto the area where the leak is. The point of leakage will glow bright green

I'm an old dog and I love new tricks.

Will remember that one.

      Volkswagen announced today that the VW Microbus, the beloved van popular in the Sixties, will be making a comeback in 2022.
      CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen, Hinrich J. Woebcken added: “We are delighted that our parent company has taken the decision to produce the I.D. BUZZ. This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability, and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership. The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it’s the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle.”
      The I.D. BUZZ won’t just be a passenger vehicle. Just like the classic T2, the I.D. BUZZ will both haul people and haul freight. "Along with a minibus version, we'll also be offering an I.D. BUZZ CARGO variant for zero-emissions delivery of goods,” said Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles CEO Dr Eckhard Scholz. "With Level 3 autonomous capability, this is an ideal concept for an electric van, particularly for delivering packages and goods to the inner cities."
      Although Volkswagen's oldest and newest Microbuses will be separated by more than seven decades when the new model is launched, the I.D. BUZZ undoubtedly has the original's genes, as it offers maximum utilization of space on the footprint of a mid-size passenger car. Based on the new all-electric architecture, the production version of the I.D. BUZZ will incorporate many design ideas from the concept car, including multi-variable seating, interactive connectivity, and highly automated driving.
       

       

       
      Volkswagen is targeting a 2020 launch of its ID line of e-mobility vehicles with the compact ID hatchback first, followed by an as-yet unrevealed ID SUV and then the ID Buzz van sometime between 2022 and 2025.

      Hi All,
      Can any one recommend a good shop in UAE where i can get my 2011 VW Tiguan re-painted. Right now the paint on the fuel cap area is peeling off and same in the case for my side mirrors. I have my vehicle passing coming up in a few months time during which time i think they might ask me get those area re painted.
      Any recommendation? Please help
      Thanks
