Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix

Greetings ClubTouareg.com!!

Have the normal instrument cluster warning sounds disappeared from your Touareg?


Can you no longer hear the turn signals 'blink' when activated?

Can you no longer hear the -
  • Seat belt warning chime
  • Door open warning chime
  • Frost warning chime
  • Headlight warning chime
  • Key-in-ignition warning chime
Or, can no longer hear any of the various other audible warning chimes and sounds normally generated by the Touareg Instrument Cluster?

If not, then it is very likely that the Instrument Cluster Speaker has failed in your Touareg.

*********************************

***WARNING*** - DO NOT let the Volkswagen Dealer Service Department, or the local Independent Volkswagen Service Facility, convince you that, if your Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker has failed, the ENTIRE instrument cluster MUST be replaced and reprogrammed – at a cost of US$1,000 or more!!

*********************************

We are pleased to now offer to ClubTouareg.com members an IMPROVED Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package!

Anyone comfortable with changing the oil in a vehicle can EASILY accomplish the Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR for LESS THAN US$100.00!!

Our Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package fits ALL MODEL YEARS of Volkswagen Touareg – T1, T2 and T3 – European or North American versions.

The Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package that we offer includes an improved revision of the EXACT German Original Equipment speaker as supplied by the original German OE parts supplier. The replacement speaker we now offer features an improved speaker cone material that will better-resist the road vibration and material friction that caused the original instrument cluster speaker to fail.

The replacement speaker we offer in our Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package fits the Touareg instrument cluster EXACTLY as the original failed OE speaker and includes the CORRECT polarized wiring harness and instrument cluster power connector for easy installation.

No more digging around for a replacement speaker – lifted from a child's toy hoping it will fit – and cutting and soldering delicate electrical wiring in a futile effort to replace a failed Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker!!

Our Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package also includes detailed, step-by-step, color pictorial instructions that walk you through the complete Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix process: removal of the instrument cluster, opening the instrument cluster housing, locating, removing and replacing the failed instrument cluster speaker, and the replacement of the instrument cluster.

With our Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package the Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix process is fairly simple and easy to achieve with common automotive shop tools: straight and Phillips screwdrivers, Torx® drivers - and the unique plastic pry tool that we include in our package to ensure easy, no-damage removal of the plastic trim pieces surrounding the instrument cluster.

If your Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker has failed - or is about to fail as indicated by audible 'buzzing' emanating from the instrument cluster and or intermittent warning sounds - it is very important to perform this particular Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix. While it may be a blessing to eliminate the seat belt warning chime nuisance, when the Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker fails, other important sounds generated by the instrument cluster speaker are also silenced.

BONUS FOR CLUBTOUAREG.COM MEMBERS ONLYOur Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package also includes details on the optional process to affix NOISE ISOLATORS to very specific locations on the Touareg Instrument Cluster Housing and and plastic trim pieces prior to re-installing the instrument cluster to eliminate the persistent, plastic squeaking and rattling noises that notoriously emanate from the Touareg Instrument Cluster.

If interested in our Touareg Instrument Cluster Speaker Fix Package please send a PM or contact us offline for more details on pricing and availability.


Cheers!
