Camshaft position sensor location for W12

Hi guys.

On my Touareg W12, the warning light of the engine check is on. The dealer said that it is necessary to replace the camshaft position sensor(Bank#2 exhaust). It says that it is necessary to remove the engine for this purpose. But I doubt if it is true.

Does anyone know the location of the camshaft sensor? Also, do I need to remove the engine to access the camshaft sensor?

Over the years there have been very, very few questions about the rare W12.

I hope someone knows the answer though!

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!]

If I remember correctly, I was looking to buy a w12 Phaeton and the sensors could be accessed by removing the intake and maybe the valve covers. I’m sure it could be done in the car as they are in the location of the tandem pumps. That said it may cost the same as pulling the engine as the work load is similar. If it is something you are doing for yourself it is a no brainer to do it in the car... if the clock is ticking at a dealer it may be a wash. Maybe a independent shop would be a good place to get a estimate?

Hello noobytoogy-san,

Thanks to you, everyone noticed.
I want to continue riding my Touareg W12, because I like power, torque, exhaust sounds, and sexy style!

Thanks,

Hello TRespect-san,

Thank you for very important information.
I think that same layout between Touareg W12 and Phaeton W12 engine. So I understood sensor location.

Thank you so much!

Hi Blownvette-san,

Thank you for your opinion based on experience.
I think maybe Phaeton and Touareg are the same way of working.
I will question to independent shop as you say, and get second opinion. At first, I will search shop in Japan.

Thanks, and Regards,

APGE,
