Air suspension leak HEEELP!!

I have a air-leak on my Treg.

Itīs where the air-hose is connected to the "air spring damper". Between the "residual pressure retaining valve" and the damper. (front suspension).

Donīt wanna change the whole "air spring damper" because of a little leak. Same leak on both sides!
Someone must know how the parts are putted together!
VW-Sweden doesnīt know.

Is the connection between the "residual pressure retaining valve" and the damper a screwthread or is the connection squeezed together?????

Help!!!!
A damper change on both sides will cost me about 4200 $.
I hope I can fix it myself......just wanna be sure of how itīs putted together before I start destroying something!

Drawings? explanation? Something which can help me out?

VW Touareg 2003-03 V6

Best regards
/Jimmie

If it's between the "air spring damper" and the "residual pressure retaining valve" then according to the pic on page 20 of the attached doc, you might be out of luck, i.e. the "air spring damper" has a leak.

btw, I can't remember where I downloaded the doc from ...moderators please delete if infringe copyright ...

That is your best option. It is basically what the mechanics look at. You need to spend $20 to get 3 days of access. You can print or download the info. So pull the credit card out of your wallet and spend a little money.

Just back home after a visit at my lokal Vw-dealer.

Have made a really good friend there and he allowed me to take a look in their repair-manual-program called "ELSA"

AND GUESS!!!!! I found a page called " Change the residual pressure retaining valve"

You can replace it if the sealing leaks, or thevalve have been messed up.

Now the new problem..... The "residual pressure retaining valve" is not a sparepart in Sweden.......strange.....but you have a manual in swedish how to change it!!!!!

Does anyone know how a " residual pressure retaining valve"
look like when itīs not fitted...

(Yes, the grammar isnīt the best......Iīm from Sweden U know )

Didn't the repair manual have a picture of the part and the location? The one from Bentley usually has this. You could also ask your dealership friend to look at his spare parts catalog for pictures.
