    Front N/S SHOCK ABSORBER

    Can anyone give me the part number for this item (Original genuine VW part for 2014 SV)
    Local main dealer quoting around 240 to replace just one which seems a bit rich
    but not had this done for years so it could be in the ball park. Shocks on line
    with a reputable make seem to be around 70. Not sure about going the the local
    Kwikfit or similar outfit.

    I'm assuming that this wasn't covered by your original 5 year warranty then, or the extended warranty you were looking at?

    If not, it's another thing for us all to be aware of!

    Thanks for the useful catalog info. Not sure how to interpret it as more than 1 listed
    with only 'model data' to determine which one which is lost on me. Thanks anyway as a useful resource.
    Although just in warranty (5 yr factory) was only lightly misted so not covered.

    This car is MQB platform and the front DAMPERS on these are very leak prone and for some odd reason I cannot fathom, it is nearly always the left front, seriously 9 times out of ten..... why? The dampers on the MQB are VERY specificity valved to application and it is important to establish what the car was tuned for and this is done using the VIN and associated Pr codes. There are dozens of variants that will “fit” but only certain versions that will work.

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.

    No, it is where research comes in WHEN you know the details and have the trade look up info, rather than depending on some spotty oik at ECP who will sell you anything his computer says will fit. Private Message me your REG and I can tell you which VAG part was fitted from new and, specifically, which Boge, Sachs or possibly Monroe units are available. As I found when trying to get the “exact” dampers for my Octavia, many VAG OE dampers are only made by VAG at their Braunschweig components plant which started production in 1938 before the main Wolfsburg plant. What on earth went wrong with the MQB front damper is something I would like to know.

    I don’t know, it would be interesting to get the opinion of an MQB experienced mechanic where they drive on the wrong side of the road. Also it begs why on the previous PQ35 platform it was right rear callipers that packed up most often... odd patterns I see over the decades.
