Just brought my car in for warranty service and FYI they told me there was an "Update" regarding the water pump. I haven't searched online for any info I will ask about it when I pick the car up tomorrow.
Anyone else hear anything?

What year is your car? I had service last Friday on a 2015 and they found no issues outstanding since the sunroof closing changes.

Please post back if you find out as there are no recalls I can find.

This is NOT for the Q3 - but instead for older A3s. It has to do with an FRP housing that leaks. The Q3 engine has an aluminum housing - won't be applicable to us.

The 2.0T EA888 Gen-1 engine used in US Q3s has a plastic water pump/thermostat housing, which often cracks and leaks, or a squeeling bearing noise at idle.

I think there was an update "RVU" to the ECU programming of the operating logic of the electric afterrun water pump, which is controlled by the engine ECU.
