Driver seat

I’m wondering if anyone else is experiencing their driver seat drifting down. I would set my seat drive my Touareg Everything Is fine seat stays in place. Once I park. Come back to drive again the seat is laid back and I have to adjust it. The more I do any stop and go running errands are if parked over night I got to adjust the drivers seat.

This helps people help you.


If you have a Generation 1 car with manual seat adjustment then it's your big fat bottom/thighs at fault!


It's a known issue that you brush the height lever as you exit the car.


VW used to sell a piece of plastic that you insert on the seat edge to prevent the lever moving.


Others with electric seats have the same issue and can get a better designed seat switch fitted.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Do you have the seat memory set for your key? On mine, the easy entry feature automatically backs the seat to full rear position when I open the door with the key out of the ignition. When I get back in and close the door the seat doesn't return to the set position until I put the key back in.

I have a MY 2013 V6TDI.

Within the first year of ownership I noticed the seat was constantly moving. I am 108Kg, and figured it was just me...or as some wag has suggested my big fat BTM was the cause. However, into the second, i would find the seat flat out in the morning after garaging it for the night. I thought that strange and reviewed the switching...took to the dealer...they found nothing...ok, what's the issue? Back to the BTM thing???

However, on a longer trip (300K) I was constantly having to readjust the seat back. Took back to the dealer (v3) and they thought it would be good to leave with them overnight. I did. They would review the mechanisms...hallelujah a warranty claim. The entire seat back was replaced.

Now into year 6 and the same clicking sound is coming from the back of the seat on long trips. Sounds very like a mechanism is failing or stressed. May be time for an upgrade...the newer V8 would be good...a dream.

I am not the only Touareg driver in Canberra with the issue. A Service "adviser" told me that it was likely because of the cold weather snaps in Canberra - oh really - this i a GERMAN vehicle where it snows much more than here . Needless to say that was not impressive. Still the vehicle is one of the best things I have had for years...have had Triumph, BMW, Statesman and more, but this gives me everything I would want (except 300KW of course) and more...and my wife can even drive it (and she's < 5' and 55 Kg wringing wet).

So, I suggest taking back to the dealer and getting the seat back mechanisms resolved. Good luck.

Garage
I still have the same problem. I have two keys to my Touareg and each of them has been programmed to the seat and the steering wheel. Once I unlock the door, the steering wheel goes all the way up and the seat goes to the lowest position and slide backward. Its meant for easier entry but I hate to adjust it every time I come to drive. I have been looking at the driver manuals on how to reset the key assignment to the seats but I've been having difficulties on resetting it.

You sure someone isn't getting laid in your parked ride while you're not there?
