New Technical Bulletin Issued for Steering Wheel Shake !!!

All,

I have a relative that is a VW tech and he just called and let me know that a TB was published yesterday for all Touaregs 2011-2015 for Steering Wheel Shake.

TB 48 15 01 was issued on 01/13/15

It speaks to the problem and states 36PSI , torqueing nuts by hand and in a specific order.
It also speaks to that the brake disc bolt hub needs to be in the 6 o'clock position.

This should take 90 minutes to complete.

Hopefully this should resolve the issue.

I pick my 14 Lux up this afternoon and will insist this TB is completed before I arrive.

I would still drive the vehicle at freeway speed to ensure there is no steering wheel shake before signing on the dotted line.

It's a 9 page document that was sent to me via cell phone pics. a large portion of it was illustrations of how to star pattern tighten the lugs.

I wanted to share the highlights and the TB #. For those currently dealing with the problem.

I will say that my dealer is already giving me a hard time about performing this prior to my arrival.

Right now it's 50/50 if I'll be driving a Touareg this afternoon.

Just called VWoA and unfortunately TB 48-15-01 does not exist, the latest TB they have is 48-14-XX. I also would like to see the actual print out if possible.
