So as the title suggest, my 2011 Touareg has a leak from the cooler pipe, started Monday night just gone.

Just wondering if anyone had any experience of this?

The garage who did my oil change yesterday suggested Volksmaster, however earliest they can get me in is Thursday!

Any suggestions of any other garages? I’m in Oldham, North Manchester, obviously want somewhere close as Iv been advised to not drive it.

Thanks for any info x

Hi Cass, thanks for this. I tried the local one to me as it had good reviews but they couldn’t get me in until next Wednesday so I stuck with my appointment today at Volksmaster.

I dropped it off this morning.

Also there looking in to the auxhilary oil pump for the gearbox which I’v had an ongoing issue with (stalling), I’ll post an update for anyone who might be interested.

Not going to be cheap, the gearbox cooler pipe I was told is £429+vat 😣 and the auxiliary oil pump £600!

At that price you'd think fabicating a made to order replacement migth be a viable option....

2013 Escape purchased, details to follow.

The pipes are corroded so need replacing, all in £800 which includes the part, new seals, labour, vat and topping up the gearbox oil.

However the parts on back order, looking at 7-10 days!

Not helpful when I live in the middle of nowhere with one bus in and out and me working in the city!

Any suggestions of vehicle hire places that do drop offs/collections?

So far only found Europcar but I’d like to shop around if I could!

Enterprise do customer pick up but there almost £100 more expensive than Europcar for the same period.
