For those 3L V6 Tdi owners who have or get the dreaded out of range manifold flap fault or a variant of that i now have an easy permenent fix available. It only requires about 15 mins to fit to both manifolds with 2 steel brackets i make and completely eliminates the fault and prevents it from ever reappearing. It can also be used if you dont have the fault and will assure you don't get it ever. For those with the fault due to the swirl flaps being faulty fitting the brackets will stop all faults. Use of these will negate the expensive need for both manifolds to be removed and replaced or rebuilt. These are available for $120 shipping included to anywhere in Australia.

As additional information the brackets are a far better alternative to the diesel geek beautifully machined aluminum units that only provide control of the arms in one direction (mine do both directions) and as a kicker cost about $80 Aud less and fit the 3L Tdi BKS (165kw) eng in the T1 which the diesel geek units do not fit correctly

Sounds like a damned good idea for any Tdi owner to get a pair!

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!]

Yea nooby they work a treat if fault is the arms and the flaps.

Any qualification needed about models/years/ etc ... or are all T1 & T2 TDI's 3.0L covered ?

Cheers
