I have heard other TT owners have had this problem with the water pump impeller and they have replaced it with a metal impeller.

Also, a lot of these people found the problem after they destroyed their 1.8t engine when the timing belt gave out. In the USA, the scheduled replacement of the timing belt is 105,000 miles. It apppears these wear out/ break before that. When the belt goes, the valve train is destroyed.

They recommend replacing the timing belt at 60,000 miles. The 3.2 engine has a timing chain instaed of a belt.

Better safe than sorry!
