    Cooalnt cap question

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello

    I have a question about coolant reservoir caps available for 3.0T Supercharged motor. What if any are the differences relating to the amount of pressure each cap handles. I am trying to figure out the difference from the R8 coolant cap (420 121 321) and the standard stock blue cap. Every website I see lists the R8 coolant cap as a fit for this motor. I have the R8 cap and my dealer is trying to tell me that the R8 cap holds more pressure than the standard cap and is denying a warranty claim of coolant leaking from another part of the motor due to the higher pressure being held. Do you have any info on the difference between the two caps. I really don't believe there is a difference with the pressure at all. Please provide documentation if you could.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thanks for reaching out and making us aware of the current discomfort you are currently experiencing with the pending repairs . Normally in situations such as these we will support our dealer's decision making ability as they are our best and trusted technical resource. However, I do want to look examine this situation further for you and see if we are able to provide you with some clarity. Are you able to send over a PM with your VIN and contact information? I look forward to hearing back from you and providing whatever assistance possible.
