could have damaged the sensor inside the tire especially if the impact point was close to the sensor.

I can tell you without a doubt, you broke the TPMS sensor in that wheel.

Is that something that can be easily fixed?

easily, yes. expensively, definitely if you take it to the dealership. You may be able to find the parts you need by researching the part number and cross reference it to universal manufacturers for a lower price. TPMS sensors for my car are over 120 a piece from the dealership but you can get them from tirerack for a fraction of that price. The tire has to be taken off the car to get to the sensor and replace it.

Wife hit a curb in our Jeep, it did damage the sensor, replacing it only was only 35 bucks as the tire place did not charge for the dismount and remount of the tire as it was their brand that they sold, so all I had to pay was just the sensor price, saved some more cause I know how to reprogram the TPMS to read the new sensor. As stated above do some research, at little time spent now can save some bucks. Or do what a lot of folks do put black tape over the light and ignore it, that is not the way to do things but I have seen it done time and time again, especially the 4X4 rigs that really get out there in the rough stuff.

if you still have warrenty support you can get it done free at the vw dealer. its only a 2010 and if you got hte extended warrenty like i did you could still be covered.
