Lambda probe 23W6 recall question

Postby Emz26 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:19 pm

Wondering if anyone can help me here, my scirocco was in at vw for another job and they told me there was a manufacturers recall with the lambda probe. Does anyone know if the under body guard would need to be removed to carry out this work? I had it done on Monday and the guard literally fell off two days later while I was driving and had to take to another garage to get fixed. Just felt it was a big coincidence...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe the 23W6 recall is for a specific supplier of the post cat lambda probe. I think they probably would remove the undertray to replace it therefore I certainly would be having a word with the garage.

Thank you Cuprabob, I have asked them and they had outright said no, it was not removed, I’m just not sure I believe it!

Even if they didn't remove it, they were working in that area, therefore I would have expected them to notice it was insecure and fix it or at least bring it to your attention.

I have already thought this myself that they should have noticed if all screws were loose! I just don’t want to call them back and demand them to check again with their manager that this piece was not removed incase I am wrong. I am conscious that I am a young woman and therefore know nothing (in their opinion)!
