    My cars still at the body shop. It needs both sill panels completely replaced. They are both on back order. Must have been really badly corroded.

    When i got my A4 it had a little rust creeping on the inner front wing edges. I took it a local body-shop and spent a few quid getting it fixed. I then undersealed the inside of the wings to stop it happening again. I figured this was easier and less stressful than chasing VAG for months on end.
    Won the day mate new wings on Monday .

    Is anyone still around on this thread? I got my claim refused today by vw. I am willing to pursue the case. But just wondering if a small claims case is the way forward? What do you guys think?

    The newest 3B is now 13 years old, on what basis are you going to pursue this?

Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    The warranty applies to all VAG products, the problem affects cars like the Golf 4, 5 and Passat 3B, this thread is specific to the 3B, which car do you have?

    TPI 20077396/25 was issued in 2013 to cover this problem, I will email it to you.

    I have the same problem on both my front wings of my 2007 GTI which is immaculate. They called me in and inspected the car, agreed to have the car back for 4 days and carry out the work. Now while they have the car I hear VW have refused the claim as the car is too old . and the well documented previous replacements under "goodwill" have stopped. I'm currently in discussion with VW customer care but i will be disputing this, so any further info would assist. Thanks
