Thanks Rohan

Looking at the parts list I was curious to know why an Ink Pen costing 1300 odd was needed? And that too 0.3 in quantity

Cheers,

Google search for the part number (LLSMAX220) says it is an epoxy primer can for corrosion protection.

Ink pen sounds too fancy a name for this!

Finally with a heavy heart cancelled my booking of GT TSI, so close yet so far. With booking amount paid, the car in the yard, loan almost approved, my existing car close to sale, the SA informs me the car is billed to another customer !! Next car not before Jan-end Feb. Could not help but cancel the booking, now my search for AT begins again. Will need to fall in love again. Of course the recent recall, and VW still not committing to extended warranty also played its part and gave me second thoughts.

Anyone else experiencing noisy engine mounts? Regular polos have the hydaulic mounts which are noisy. Does the tsi get the same?

Correction. Vibrations have been isolated to feul n ac lines that rattle against the body. Known issue in the 77tsi motors and is reported by 1.2 tsi owners world wide. Going to dealer tomorrow for a fix.

Yes, from what I have read, can't have much hopes from the stock Apollos.
But what do you mean by better mats? Car did not come with any! In fact, I asked them for complimentary ones and they threw in some stupid beige ones that do not even lock into the stock holders! Which ones do you have? How can they come up with beige mats for an all black interior!!!

How do you point any noise/vibrations to engine mounts? Are you experiencing it only on start-up/idling?

The new Ventos post July-2013 is once again back to mechanical mountings, as hydraulic mountings are expansive. My vento is Sept-2013 is with mechanical(rubber) engine mountings.

I have also got the black(cheap) rubber mats as the compulsory accessory(I had to pay around 3K for mats and mud guard) from the VW.

I wanted to change it to Kagu Maxpider 3D mats which retails for around 5.5K. After some research found that I could get Star 3D mats for around 2.4K http://www.carmatsindia.com/product_...or_mats_88.htm. Bought the same.

Today it is showing 2.8K(they have increased Rs 400 in 15 days)

These mats are easy to clean, fits pretty nicely, and also has couple of metal strips on the driver side mat(which matches the GT TSi sporty pedals). I am not sure about the durability of this mat because I have used this only for last 15 days.

Its not the engine mounts. Its the feul lines and ac lines vibrating against the chassis rails. VW has a tsb out on the fix.

OK, can you share the tsb? I will show it to my dealer (just like I shared the sump guard part number that Rohan shared). Though my car is just 2 days old and I don't see any noise/vibrations right now.


BTW, Rohit, my service guys checked the part number you shared and explained to me that it's not specified for the TSI. It's only for the TDI and the Bangalore dealer may have done some drilling, etc to fit it on your car as the holes will not match. Is that true?

Yes, that is true. They had to drill couple of holes to fix the sump guard. May be because of that they charged me a bomb(part just costed around 5.5k, and they charged me more than 10K)

Thanks to VWWatercooled guys for sharing this. The AC/fuel line rattles are not here. Searching for the TSB details.. will post up when i get it.

Over the weekend had to make an early morning run to the airport and in the still of the night, with no external noises, I realized there is a rattle in the engine bay in 1st and 2nd gear. It sure does sound like some metal pipes rattling against the body somewhere inside the engine bay. No noise on gears after 2nd. The vibration harmonics must be just right that it makes some rattling noises.

A number of interweb searches have numerous discussions on the same rattle. Need to check this evening if I can locate the AC pipes and fix it. I will post what I find. If it's a simple touching of pipes against the body, some heavy rubber (similar to the ones that are between the hood and the body to prevent vibration) squeezed inbetween the pipes and the body should solve the problem (did this on the STI ages ago).
