Would you happen to know why I get a creaking sound when I change the settings in air suspension? For example:

Changed from Auto to Sport, front lowers very smoothly and quietly. Then rear starts to lower and it does so in a creak, creak, creak sound fashion as its being lowered.

Drove it around in Sport Suspension mode all day today and loved it!

Dried out suspension bushings\pivots would be the fist place I'd look...... crawl under it and see how rusted\dried\gummed up your stuff is at all these points. Up here in polar bear land, we oil spray our stuff all the time to keep things from binding. You can get all sorts of lubricants and dry film spray stuff that you could easily squirt on your components to make things silent again (keep it off your brake stuff).

This all assume that you don't have any worn out parts.... which if you do, you'll need to have replaced.

Taking it to VW Dealer here and they will charge me $150 for complete diagnosis on why horn isnít working (will most likely be actual horn components), why Tiptronic isnít working (I think itís magnets underneath shifter broke off), and the creaking which I think they should be willing to spray the components for me at no charge. Was quoted $600 if I need both high/low tone horns and yea Iím not having them do it.

Once I get it up to VW and have it looked over, Iíll do an update here.

New Owner of 2010 Touareg TDI - Questions

I want to post a few pictures I took this past weekend. Iíve been driving my truck around now for 2 weeks and I keep noticing small blemishes or things missing/ruined.

Nothing crazy but more just small annoyances that Iíd like to fix and renew over time as I love this Touareg 1000x more than my 2015 Hybrid I just sold. So please bare with me lol and if you have any input, advice, feedback, or suggestions please let me know.

To start things off, I feel like the AC fan doesnít blow as strong out of the very far left vent between steering wheel and window. Even when I have it on fan speed 6, itís still very weak. All other vents blow strong but only in speeds 5 or 6. Below 5 all vents suck in terms of blowing power.

My biggest annoyance is when I rest my arm on the arm rest, it constantly creaks as pressure is applied or removed.



Where can I get a new one of these? Easy to swap out?





Same thing. New one as those worn out blemishes annoy me.



This pic below is missing that black bar at the bottom. Collision shop probably forgot to replace it back in 2014 when it was involved in an accident.


Notice the back door area has it and not missing that black strip.



Totally worn out window frames. Probably not worth replacing or is there a product I can use? Otherwise Iím ignoring this.



There is a gap where the windshield meets the top roof of the car. Is there a strip missing?



How to repair scratches like this below?



Do I buy a special glue for this piece not properly attached?



These pictures below are just for further observations Iíve made. Production date is Jan 2010. Is this a later variant where quirks would have been ironed out for the 2010 model year or would it have been in later months of 2010?

I use the above site to look up parts that I need. Then google the part number to see who else has the part for cheaper.

Thanks for that tip/reminder! Already checking it out and finding what I need here and there. Jim Ellis VW in Atlanta is always the cheapest in the country.
