Customer Question

My vw golf 1.9 tdi had a new catalytic convertor fitted two days ago, now the engine sounds loud again and there is water leaking from the back of the engine bay on the passenger side. There is a red light coming up with the number 1 inside it.

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Was the converter replaced because it was setting a code or did it fail while driving?
