Manual gearbox leak

Post by Freckles » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:46 pm

Hi everyone, I have an SE NAV 1.4 manual petrol Tiguan. It is a 68 plate & I bought it new just over a year ago. I have only done 1600 miles in it but took it in for its first service recently & the gearbox has a leak! It is going back into the garage shortly but I'd appreciate hearing from anyone on here with such a young Tig as mine who's had the same problem. Thanks

Was the leak evident before or immediately after the service?

One of mine had this in the past but it was a mark 1b. If it’s the same, it’s a common fault on the back seal and is covered under warranty. The garage said they have had 2 day old cars in that have shown the fault. I didn’t know about mine until it went in for the service and they removed the engine protector underneath. That’s when they found the drops of oil. Not a spot of oil on my drive though.
