I myself had to pay out of my own pocket to have this plastic cover replaced and VW did nothing to rectify this even until this day.
Well if this is the case, you really got done in. It is not the top plastic cover which got replaced, but the bottom steel cover which covers the crank timing pulley. You should go ask your money back.
