    My 2016 FR 1.4 had an annoying rattling sound earlier. I could tell straight away that the rattle was in the engine bay behind the clocks. I've just been out and found this linkage rattles like mad if you give it a wobble. Is there an easy fix or should I take it back to SEAT as it has warranty. received_461405681194951.jpeg received_458170191544100.jpeg received_461405681194951.jpeg

    Sorry bit good luck with them.
    See below:

    Further to our telephone call on 19 September, I can confirm that SEAT UK are unable to forward any videos to a German Master Technician. This is because we rely on the information supplied by our Network of Approved SEAT Dealers and would not look to overturn their decision regarding diagnosis.

    During our telephone conversation, I did confirm that if you are unhappy with the outcome from the previous diagnosis that was carried out, you are entitled to take it to another SEAT Dealer for a separate opinion however, this decision may not change.

    I appreciate this is not the outcome you had hoped for and I would refer you to The Motor Ombudsman, a CTSI certified Alternative Dispute Resolution Provider that we are happy to engage with through the ADR procedure. I have provided their contact details below:

    Motor Ombudsman advice line: 0345 241 3008

    Website: www.themotorombudsman.org

    Address:
    The Motor Ombudsman
    71 Great Peter Street
    London
    SW1P 2BN

    Thank you for taking the time to contact SEAT UK.

    Yours sincerely

    “we are not too concerned about these plastic pieces just collect them and keep them in the boot”

    Wastegate actuator? Quite a common thing, but at least you're in good company - Audi's have the same issue.

    Hahahaha they actually do not give a monkeys

    even when you go in with a common widespread fault all you get is “thats strange we have never seen that before” they are all crooks.

    thats why i don’t mind that this is a lease car, it’s not my issue anymore so i care as little as they do i just wanted them to note all the broken bits / fallen off bits so i am not liable

    Is there a fix for it as apparently the SEAT approved warranty covers everything.
