What are the defects?

On affected vehicles, the pulley on the camshaft adjuster can break. If the camshaft adjuster fails the belt drive of the engine may also be damaged.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, this can lead to oil loss and in the worst case scenario the engine will no longer be timed correctly and valves may contact the pistons. This may pose an accident hazard to the driver or other road users.

A letter is being sent to affected owners of the vehicles. For further information, customers can contact their local Volkswagen Authorised Service Centre or contact Volkswagen Customer care on 1800 504 076.
