By the way, how can one check if the problem is really from the thermostat housing ?

Can you please tell me what pin you're talking about and how i can see if it is really broken?

Thanks :)

The 12,13,14 and 15 from the picture you posted are brand new original parts.

Are you talking about the big thing with pipes?

HI,

I'm having a big trouble finding the thermostat housing, they say they don't make it anymore since 2015.

Where can i find one? Part number is: 032 121 111 AB

Hope you can assist me on this.

Thank you very much :)

One on ebay here

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Golf-Polo ... ctupt=true

Other than that, youll likely have to phone your local VW dealer to see if there are any in the dealer network sat on a shelf

its a somewhat rare part. A dealer in germany may have some old stock

Is yours an AJV engine code?

Thanks!

Yes it is AJV and that first photo is not correct, mine has 3 tubes in the back, 1 left side and 2 right side (if you look at the engine from the front of the car).

I already got one from a local dealer, it's not an original part as VW says that this part was discontinued in 2015.

I phoned a couple of official stores, even classic and heritage parts, neither have the original part in stock.

Besides the original part costs around 208 euros in europe with vat. This one i got for nearly 40.

That is the biggest problem on these cars, thermostat keeps breaking after 3 or 4 years.

At least you managed to get one

Thermostats should last much longer than that. Genuine ones should last at least 10 years if not longer
