hey everyone well I have a broken coil pack, and the dealer won't fix it because it is out of the recall vin# 's I am wondering if somone who is getting thier coil packs changed from a V6 could ask the dealer for their old coil packs back and I will pay some shipping cost to get them, by law the dealer has to give you any parts they take off your car so if you ask they will gladly give them back, this would be a real help, new packs cost alot!!!!

I don't think they HAVE to give you back an item replaced through a recall, just items replaced through wear & tear and those that broke.

However, good luck though!

The dealer has to send back any replaced part to VW under warranty. I think it will be difficult to get one like that. Good luck!
True.

However, items replaced under recall are typically NOT sent back to VW-it just depends on the particular recall.

The dealer does not have to send back coils replaced under the WG recall.

Doesn't matter though-V6 Passat coils were never recalled to begin with, so they wouldn't have any used ones laying around like they would a 1.8t.

Yes, that is true, though it is a different engine :roll:. The Coil Packs on the 3.0 Audi engine were recalled, I don't remember hearing anything about the VW 2.8 engine. Does our 2.8 engine even HAVE coil packs? I thought I read something somewhere saying that our Ignition system is different.

Someday you'll figure out that when I say something, it's true.
