Cooling System, Checking for Leaks

All procedures are described under: → Servicing - 4-Cylinder 2.0L 4V TFSI Engine; Rep. Gr.19; Cooling System/Coolant; Cooling System, Checking For Leaks.

Coolant, Draining and Filling

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Coolant Collection System -VAS5014- or Shop Crane - Drip Tray -VAS6208-
  • Hose Clip Pliers -VAS6362-

Draining

  WARNING

There is a risk of injury if the radiator fan turns on by itself.

The radiator fans can come on by itself even when the ignition is turned off, such as when heat builds up in the engine compartment.

Risk of scalding due to hot coolant.

Pay attention to the safety precautions. Refer to → Servicing - 4-Cylinder 2.0L 4V TFSI Engine; Rep. Gr.00; Safety Instructions; Safety Precautions when Working the Cooling System.

- Open the coolant expansion tank cap -1- by releasing the catch in the direction of -arrow-.

- Remove the front noise insulation. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.66; Noise Insulation; Overview - Noise Insulation.

- Place the container of the -VAS5014- or the -VAS6208- underneath.

A19-12304

- Remove the drain plug -1- on the connection and drain the coolant.

  Note

Ignore item -2-.

A19-12322

- Vehicles with dual-clutch transmission: Loosen the hose clamps -arrows-, remove the coolant hoses and let the coolant drain.

  • Secure all hose connections with hose clamps that match the ones used in series production. Refer to the Parts Catalog.

- Tighten the drain plug and close the coolant hoses again.

Mix and Fill with Coolant

- Mix the coolant and fill. Refer to → Servicing - 4-Cylinder 2.0L 4V TFSI Engine; Rep. Gr.19; Cooling System/Coolant; Coolant, Draining and Filling.

Bleed Cooling System

- Remove the plenum chamber cover. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.50; Bulkhead; Plenum Chamber Cover, Removing and Installing.

A19-12329

- Loosen the hose clamp -1- on the coolant hose to the heat exchanger and pull back the coolant hose until the connection no longer covers the bleeder hole -arrow-.

- Fill with coolant until it escapes from the coolant hose bleed hole.

- Slide the coolant hose onto the connection and secure with a spring clamp.

A19-12312

- Tighten the cap -1- on the coolant expansion tank until it locks into place.

- If the vehicle has a parking heater, switch it on for about 30 seconds.

- Start the engine.

A19-12304

Bleed Cooling System

- Turn off engine and allow it to cool off.

- Install the plenum chamber cover. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.50; Bulkhead; Plenum Chamber Cover, Removing and Installing.

Coolant Level, Checking

  • Coolant level must be at "MAX" marking when the engine is engine cold.
  • Coolant level may be above "MAX" marking with engine at operating temperature.

- If necessary, fill with coolant again.

A19-12330
