Your model has sunroof, please guide me on maintaining and keeping it clean always. Many thanks for your post.
Not Dev, but still answering as I got it done recently.


I did mine in Palakkad, Keralam from a known FNG. Before you decide to paint, please find a detailer and get a black / camouflage wrap done and see for yourself. The wraps do stay in place without coming off. Mine got brushed by an auto so I decided to paint over.

3M / detailing mafia / car laundry any of these folks should be able to do it. If you do plan on painting - the service centre does it but charges approx 25-30K. You could check with code6 garage as well. I had also checked for a dipping from Dawn customs, their quote was close to 15-16K

As of Sunroof - I hardly use it. I got the lubed during the yearly maintenance service, I checked it now seeing this question, and it's become really noisy. I need to check as well.

May I ask what the issue was, and if it got resolved? On my last ride I started noticing a weird noise - almost like drum beats when I slow down from triple digit speeds. This has never happened before. I'm due to make a visit to the SC to get this checked.

Thanks Much.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Thanks a lot for the response :-)

But mine is brand new so want to just de chrome and I think that won't cost much. Let me check for Camaflogue and check with 3M in HSR.

Also regarding the sunroof the question is more about cleaning and maintaining, as everyone saying need to clean regularly otherwise it will look like a mess when you sit inside and open :-)

I am having brake noise issue since 18K km, got disc and pad changed at 27K km again noise is back after driving 4K kms. I have escalated the matter and hopefully VW technical team should help diagnose the issue.

The noise is similar to the drum beats, changing pads & disc is a temporary fix.

I was talking to the service manager and he mentioned it may be an issue with the ABS, can only get it checked by the 30th of this month.

Funnily, another ode to the quality of 2.0 models, the aircon control broke at one side.

Wrapping the chrome parts costed me close to 1.2K from a friend's detailing shop. Please get the trims removed, wrapped and installed back. Painting from the local shop was 8k.

As of Sunroof, I haven't done anything extra. I give the car one pressure wash in a month. It's not been that dirty.

Well the remedy currently provided is application of lithium grease. Post the application brakes have stopped making noise.

Well finally I got my car back after three weeks.The ASC was unable to pinpoint the issue so they asked for support from the company.The issue was finally located in the turbocharger servo motor, which had failed.( Part No-04E198725G)

Now this part is not supposed to fail so early, so the hunt for its cause ensued.
Finally they concluded that the part shorted due to water ingress from the plastic tray which is positioned just below the windshield and houses the wind screen washer nozzles.This part is constructed in two parts and are joined in the middle as can be seen in the attached picture. When its raining or using the windscreen washer or even washing the vehicle the water that flows off the windscreen collects in the tray before draining. the joint of the parts which is in the middle had developed a leak and some water was trickling down and falling directly over the servo motor which is situated exactly below the joint.

The solution was application of butyl tape to seal the leak.

The ASC acknowledged that this is the first time they have encountered such an issue.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

It's Good News that the root cause has been identified. The information you have provided is very good. Thanks for keeping us updated.

Glad to see the issue resolved. And lovely to see the root cause found and analyzed. Hope VW (and may be Skoda) add this cowl top tape solution in next service voluntarily as service campaign. I know the probability of occurance may be low but the impact is high since it renders vehicle inoperative.

Nice to see these findings. Need to check how it is in my Slavia 1.5. And I have been guilty of pressure washing the engine bay multiple times and drenching the whole area with all sorts of detergents.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

The service engineer specifically asked me not to pressure wash the windscreen and the engine bay is a big no-no.

Very amused that they concluded. Does it mean VW is not aware of their own car? But good that the issue is resolved.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

VW is changing the engine mountings of Taigun. They called me for an "inspection" and then proceeded to change the mountings apart from S/w update etc.

My observations after the change.
- The mounting itself is softer and much thicker.
- a much softer low-speed ride.
- doesn't make rattling noises over most bumps. even the rattlesnake ones.

The car just got so much better.

Is it for for all Taiguns?
I also received a call from VW Indore for fuel pump recall that too after using it for 2 years. Sept 2021 purchase.

Is this for 1.0L or 1.5L engine variant?

And is the entire engine mounting set changed - Bush, metal bracket and nuts or just the rubber bush?
