Has anybody experienced an exhaust leak on the manifold? I thought it was the donut gasket where the exhaust meets the manifold but I changed it and there is no difference. The sound is definitely coming from that area. Anyone have any info?
I just took mine into the dealer ship right before christmas because i had a leak of somekind and a hissing noise...they called me and said one of the bolts had broke off on the exhaust manafold and to get it fixed would be 2200.00 and 5 days of down time. since the bolt broke they would have to machine it out and then replace all the bolts and gasket. This seems like a very strange issue because it's an 05 TB, and doesn't even have 100K miles on it yet, they said it rusted off? unless they use cheap bolts, this shouldn't happen! Is there a quick fix or a temp fix that can be done...can't swallow the 2200 repair bill at this point, the noise isn't getting worse, other than it's annoying.
They told me i could replace the gasket without fixing the bolt and it would help some, but then i run the risk of others breaking off.
Any idea's would be great.
