2008 Volkswagen Jetta (3/7/2014)  

Campaign Number: 14E007000

Component Name: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE

Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Description: The Gates Corporation (Gates) is recalling certain aftermarket Tru-Flow Water Pumps, part number TFW 41127, sold at certain NAPA Auto Parts and/or installed by automotive service technicians after November 1, 2013 (and manufactured August 2013 through October 2013) that have a black-colored pulley/sprocket or do not have 'US9377' stamped on the water pump housing.
