Charge Air Pressure Actuator- 2016 Passat R-Line
I have a [2016 Volkswagen Passat R-Line Sedan 4-Door 1.8L 1798CC 110Cu. In. l4 GAS DOHC Turbocharged] and having issues with the Charge air pressure actuator operating the wastegate. It keeps clicking when the key is turned to the "ON" position and the Cooper Standard heats up. How can I get the wastegate to stay open or closed

RE: Charge Air Pressure Actuator- 2016 Passat R-Line
Not fully familiar with many of these newer vehicles because most are still in the dealership and under warranty... BUT... other than self checks (possibly during key on, engine off) a waste gate should be closed most of the time under normal driving conditions and only open when boost is above a certain threshold. If you feel it's not right then probably time to have someone perform a scan and look at live data for something out of range or a pending error code. IOW, no check engine light just yet, but a trouble code lingering in your future. Since this may be an emissions category, you may be under warranty till 50k or 100k miles, depending on the state the car is certified for. Certainly worth a phone call before spending money.

Let us know how you make out as it may help others reading here.
