Yeh, if it's out warranty... then either. Up to you.

But an indy will be cheaper.

You need to trust the indy..... if not take it to VW.

I had a listen, sounds like alternator??? of one of the pullers/rollers/tensioner bearings on that end of the block.

our van is currently @ our local vw van centre, they have done a health check on it this morning and found that the whirring noise is the power steering pump. They said it is faulty and needs replacing. Apparantley the alternator free wheel pulley is also stiff.
total bill = £928.68

I have to say I feel disappointed having to replace this @only 58k miles :mad:

A week ago I advised my daughter to consider a VW when she replaces her car, now after reading the steady stream of expensive failures I think I’ll advise going Japanese!
I love my ancient and battered A4, just keeps on going unlike the new VAG stuff.

I had to have a new dual mass flywheel fitted @ 54k and now this power steering pump @58k. Not what you'd expect from VW
