Here is a PDF of a service bulletin related to the shake that my dealer gave me.

It is 44-13-01 though. Don't think I've seen 48-14-XX.

I was suspicious of the 48-15-XX one based solely on it calling for all the same measures as the earlier ones (RF balancing to variances less than currently possible with tire manufacturers, precise installation techniques, tire over-inflation, throwing salt over your left shoulder while standing on one leg, etc).

VW TT 44-13-01

JEC, I'd stay far clear unless you enjoy getting the run-around with no clear solutions.

It also speaks to that the brake disc bolt hub needs to be in the 6 o'clock position
???

I never saw any mark on the hub with a ''O'' or TDC or ??? on these hubs...

It exisits my dealer showed it to me. I took delivery today but didn't need it since after a 45min test drive it doesn't shake.
The TB, is dated 1-13-15.

I can't explain why the person you spoke to at VWoA don't know of if but believe me it exisits.

You might want to call your dealer directly.

The TB refers to it as a "brake disc bolt / hub thread"

Im not a certified VW tech so I can only go by what is written in the bulletin.

Hope that helps.

Just called two local dealers and none of them could find anything related to the TSB you've posted. If you don't have time I'd be happy to call your dealer to get a copy of that TSB. All you have to do is to post their number

This procedure for tightening was posted by another member last summer and followed by me after we got our 2011 Lux with 19" wheels and our car has been good ever since.
Makes sense, my auto shop teacher in high school (1979) taught us to put wheels on in a similar manner and always tighten in a Star pattern, finger tight first, light pressure with a ratchet and then come back with proper torgue with a torque wrench to finish.
My kids know to do it this way also, it's not Rocket Science.
Thanks JEC PA

These cars have a different style hub and lug bolts than I have ever seen on any other vehicle, by orientating the wheel with the brake disc bolt at 6 o'clock position puts one of the 3 centering flanges on the hub at 12 o'clock position to properly support the heavy wheel and using star pattern further promotes getting wheel centered.

The 19" and 20" wheels are very heavy, if they are off center on the hub by the smallest amount all that mass can cause problems staying centered no matter how whell the tire are balanced.
