Hi,@YFKR, any news? Did you get it fixed or do you have the same issue?
Yes, I got the problem fixed by replacing the heating matrix replaced. It was clogged up with tiny solid pieces of copper/bronze looking things. So I can only assume that the silicate bag had indeed burst inside my old tank.
So a full coolant flush and replacing the heating matrix was the fix for my car.
Hope this helps everyone who has had same problem with VAG cars.
Note: Anyone who has this repair attempted, do the full system flush/bleed first. Then put the new matrix in.
