I can't understand why the dealers you spoke to claim it doesn't exist....I'd like to hear what the excuse is when the customers know more then the so called experts !!

Glad to help...if this helps one fellow owner then it was well worth it.

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
Your welcome Bob!

I can't speak to if it's a re-print of an old one.

I will say that my dealer did not want to do it, and insisted my vehicle was shake free.

Fortunately they were right otherwise I would have thrashed their survey.

What I followed last summer was just a suggestion from another member but very interesting that it is basically an "Offical" VW TSB now

@OP: Thanks for posting this info. It is quite obvious that the VW engineers still not willing to admit that there is a design problem. But it is better to have woody style TSB than nothing. I called my SA today and asked him if he got that new TSB, but he had no time to check for anything new today. They were using most of the steps described in November'-14 TSB way before it was issued and were very successful in curing shakes on a number of Touaregs.

@T-Reguan: posting PDF file will be appreciated.
