Well, dealer has my car. Diagnosed the bad water pump and they should be fixing it in the next few days. Hopefully!
In the last 12 weeks I've been having this issue. I first had my water pump replaced after it blew out at 33,000 miles. Two months later the ringing came back and I had a slow drip of coolant. I had my 2nd water pump put on, along with a radiator, and throttle module. A week later the ringing came back. This time they replaced the intake manifold but that did not resolve it since the ringing started up before I even got off the VW lot. Two days later I had my 3rd water pump put on. A week later the ringing came back. I have my 5th appointment for this issue scheduled for Tuesday. I've tried two dealerships too. I noticed yesterday I has some small oil seepage around the cylinder head. So I'm thinking that is were the air is getting into the coolant system causing the ringing and my water pump to keep going out. Hopefully I just need a quick valve cover gasket and/or Cylinder head gasket replaced. Currently have 39,400 miles.
so my car is at the dealer since yesterday, wanted to get an oil change and fix a window issue as well,
brought the car in and the noise was being made, i made sure the service writer heard it. later in the day no noise because it was probably cold and since they were closing they didn't have time to drive it/ take it off the lift. but i showed the technition my video and he was like yea thats not right i'll drive it tomorrow. get a call this morning saying that the water pump has failed and they are overnighting the part and i can get the car tomorrow. i will report back to let everyone know!

Dam : whats Up with all this - sounds like a few to many - maybe a Q.A Issue with WP Vendor .
Will everyone with Water Pump Issues , check the Coolant with Litmus Paper for Acidic Conditions & Voltage Tester to see If there is any Currant Flowing across Coolant ?
Just trying to Eliminate any other issues to Drill Down to the Actual Failure - Cause .
Everyone should also List , Miles on Motor , and what Color Coolant was in the System when
this Happened .
Yes, I heard it - Vent or Pump , Odd thou it changed some when You pulled and replaced Oil Stick.
To many sound clips on here , I was referring to the other Sound Clip .

Definitely a bad pump... as it was when this engine was first introduced back in late 2009.... VW has had huge issues with this design.
BTW... please learn to embed the video... like this....

got me kinda worried now. i topped off my coolant begining of last month and im already at the minimum cold line. wheres it going? idk. im gonna listen for the noise later today. on a side note, whoever it was that had their flywheel replaced because of a hooooing noise, was it replaced under warranty?
My car is on its third pump now, dealer has been great, aside from the fact that the pumps keep failing. I have already filed a complaint with VWoA. Really frustrated with the car, it's been perfect except for this.
Anyone have any issues on 12' TSI's?
My car has 5600 miles +/- and it is now on its THIRD water pump, latest part revision (06H121026BA). It was replaced 3 weeks ago and now the high pitch sound is back, just as it was when the first and second wp's failed:

Took this vid last friday. It is the new wp FAILING. No leaks yet though:
