First time the Passat has nearly let me down.

A while back I had the small local garage change the inline thermostat because I could not be bothered doing it myself.

Set off early yesterday and just down the road the coolant warning light came on :0 , made a quick about turn and got home. A look under the bonnet showed the inline 'stat had come adrift from the hose, the silly clip was not on, obviously not been put back properly and must have been hanging on for ages.

Ten minutes of struggling and skinned knuckles later and we were on our way, I had the remains of the 5l tub of coolant from the original job so took that with us to keep topping it up when it had bled itself.

Ended up at Matthewsons auctions where they film the Bangers and Cash TV show.
Have you been mis-sold TDi.
