Loose spoiler (NOTE TO EVERYONE)

Post by Steve » Wed Feb 06, 2019 11:54 pm

Two weeks ago i contacted VW to see if my car needed checking for the recall faults(spoiler and handbrake).They said my car will ok as it is not on the list for recall.Today i noticed my spoiler loose at one end.So i rang VW and they were surprised that this had happened.It is now booked in on tuesday to be fixed.So my advice to EVERYONE is to check their spoiler.

Is it not one of those go faster spoilers that automatically lift up the faster you go? :D

Just got my letter re this yesterday. Can’t really be hassled with taking it into the dealership for check as I have had a good look at the top of the spoiler and it is currently secure. I somewhat doubt the dealer’s check would be much different.

My car gets it’s service late May and I think I’ll leave it till then.

What letter?
Are only specific cars affected?
Spoiler seems fixed ok, but what is the handbrake issue?

Some owners are getting a recall letter depending on your VIN number.Mine was not on the recall list but was still faulty.Not sure what the problem is with the handbrake issue but you will find it in one of the forums on here

Mine was recalled and fixed during this week, procedure took around 5 hours (due to glue needed hardening)
