    Default Auto Gearbox Contamination? REcall/Rework?

    I've been trying to get my head around the issues with auto boxes getting wrecked due to water contamination due to failed radiator seals.

    I've read that a production modification was made to rectify this fault from a certain VIN number. Mine was built before this.

    Has there been/is there a recall or modification that Vx perform on earlier cars?

    I've not had the car long, but it has previously been serviced by Vx dealers, so if there is one, should it have been done????

    Cheers, Nez

    Not much help to you but I also asked this question on the thread "AutoBox Knowledge AF40?"

    "From other research I suspect that my 56 Reg 1.9 Cdti (2007 reg) would have the modifications to the standard cooler in the rad. Is there someway of proving this with Vin No's? One of the threads below also mentions a 'glycol' test. The coolant in the expansion tank has no sign of oil in at all."

    I did find a thread whch may be interesting
