Just spoke to my dealer and she has said there is already a fix.

It requires a small part to be ordered and each car needs to be checked to see if it’s affected as VW won’t let them order any parts until they know for sure the car needs it.

^^^Further to the above. It’s looks like there checking mine this afternoon so with any luck I might have it end of next week depending on when they receive the part that is.

This all depends on whether mine is affected, which is most likely.

It was scheduled for week commencing 10th Feb but it was earlier than that as it was already in transit by that date.

I’m seeing my dealer tomorrow morning so will hopefully know more as she said my car was being looked at this afternoon.

I will of course report back.

Just got a call from my supplying dealer. My Tig is NOT affected by the issue so will be delivered on Monday as expected.
Good times. Hope others get some good news today too.

Given that mine arrived at the dealers on 04/02 and isn't affected by the issue, I reckon you'll be ok.

So I’ve just got back from dealers as they needed to change my plate over to a 17 as my private plate would not suit a Tig.

I went with intention of seeing mine as I thought it would be while till I get but like the above mine too isn’t affected and I’m now collecting on Sunday @ 9.30am.

My dealer has said it has to be a quick handover as they have a sales promo going on and there not really allowed to do handovers during this time.

Well chuffed and really looking forward to it now!!

I’ve got about 65 miles fuel left, hopefully I can make it last till Sunday morning 😆
