Volkswagen Manufacturer warranty provides coverage to water pumps. The coverage applies to the cost of labor and replacement components. The duration of the manufacturer warranty varies from a few years to a lifetime.

Even so, the manufacturer warranty has exclusions, including typical wear and tear, misuse, damage from accidents, or modifications by the owner. If your water pump develops a problem, you can request repairs from an authorized dealer or agent.
