Looks like my water pump has gone out...mechanic researching (non vw guy...my mechanic), 96k miles.
Since they have to rip into it to potentially replace it is there anything I should also do during this maintenance w/ the mileage on the vehicle?
Also, any ball park on $$$$$ of something like this?

1) So, do I need to do anything else while the engine is open?

2) What have most paid for water pump and hoses?

Thanks in advance.

Well, I got it back....since no one seems to have a water pump issue I assume everyones Tiguan is running fine. If in the future someone has an issue just respond to this thread and I will post out the details.

See my post "2010 Tiguan Meltdown" which I am now in the process of updating (to add new control arm bushings, front springs and steering bearings). It has been my terrible experience to discover that the Tiguan (at least ours) seems to have a design life of about 120,000 miles (200-210,000 km). Here are its major failures:

- water pump
- fuel injectors x 2
- main engine/tranny seal
- timing chain
- control arms
- steering bearings
- front springs
- intake manifold x 3

If I had to do it all again I would never buy one. If bought, I would dump it well before the 100,000 mi mark.
