Good day everyone. Long time since I posted anything on a forum, so hey.. Hope everyone is good. I'm a happy owner of a Seat Leon MK2 1.4 TSI (2010) for the past 2 years and I gotta admit that I loved the car from its birth, when back at 2005 my best mate bought one MK2 1.6L. Although its a great car, I can't say it didn't come with its problems. As you may have guessed, I bought it second hand and the previous owner wasn't a great driver or car savvy in general. Apart the required services and taken care of minor issues, I had a couple major problems. First problem was the water pump, which I knew was failing before I bought it (got extra discount on the car for that), but around 6 months later I had the dreaded timing chain problems that unfortunately many TSI engines suffer. Well, fixed that and for over a year the car ran smoothly, up to about a month ago that I started hearing a "whizzing" sound when I was pressing the throttle, while the car was rolling. with no other effect on how the car drives. Long story short, I have a failing ball bearing at the differential, which I need to address by reconditioning my gearbox. A VW group gearbox specialist I spoke to, told me that certain models have specific issues that are recurring, my particular one, being a couple bearings in the gearbox along with the 2nd gear cog. At the end of the month, (summer vacations for everyone here in Greece), I will refurb my gearbox and get rid of the problem. Is what the guy told me true? Does the 1.4L TSI engine suffer from gearbox problems, or can I blame the previous owner of the car, for mishandling the gearbox and the car in general? Thanks in advance and hello again!
