Will the Volkswagen extended warranty cover my broken EGR valve?

My EGR valve has gone on my Volkswagen Jetta 2011 and the car has only 42,000 miles on clock . I took Volkswagen extended warranty, will this cover it?

Probably not because it is usually considered a wear and tear item. Basically your EGR is clogged up with gunge; it is not a 'mechanical breakdown'. Very common indeed on VAG EA189 1.6 TDI engines. So common that I think owners should take class action about it because this engine was originally sold with faked NOx readings and the true CO2 and Nox emitted could be what is clogging the EGRs.
