I hear a hissing noise almost like an air leak on my GC limited when sitting and idling. It's under the truck toward the back on the driver side . I assume its nothing but thought I'd ask.

I did some searching and came up blank.

Re: Hissing noise under my WK2

If this post was from one of our Australian members, I would have a guess -- but in New Jersey in February a snake is unlikely. So my best guess would be water/snow/ice cooking off the hot exhaust. Next time it does it, take a look underneath.

Re: Hissing noise under my WK2

Since you didn't see anything unusual, all I can think of is that you might have an exhaust leak. The next time it happens, have someone rev the engine while you are looking underneath, and see if one of the pipe joints is blowing exhaust. Regardless, it shouldn't be doing this, so if you can reproduce the problem easily, take it in and get it fixed under warranty.

Re: Hissing noise under my WK2

Hi

Is it above fuel tank. Just pull the heated seat fuse and see if it stops?

It could be, I only hear it on the Driver side. The rear heated seat fuse or front?
