At the 73,000 service it required an outer NS driveshaft gaiter, and today
at the 92,000 service the inner gaiter on the same side.
Is this normal?
I don't drive it over rough terrain and although the mileage is quite high,
it's mainly motorway. Are their gaiters made of cheese?
With my tongue only slightly in my cheek I asked the dealership if I should
expect to have this done on every service until the whole set have been
Never had a gaiter fail on any other car run to over 100,000 except an
ancient Polo at 178,000 miles.
Re: VW Touran gaiters
Thanks Gents. Too late for me to do anything now - but I will check the
offside thoroughly before the next service!
I trust the dealership, as the service manager is a neighbour and has got
nothing to gain and lots to lose by fleecing me. More concerned as to why
they failed at a young age.
