2013 TDI Treg, 120800km

Hello, last night i parked my Treg at the end of my lane to close the gate, I closed said gate got back to a cabin full of smoke. instantly killed the engine, popped the hood and smaller amount of smoke cleared. I could not find anything so I started it up to observe the engine bay, I saw a few sparks on the passenger side engine bank 1/2 way down or so. Engine will not crank now, smell is still present in engine bay(around the alternator) and cabin. Im not 100%but im thinking alternator but I have no engine codes. checked,, nothing.. 2013 tdi warranty expired 800km ago... last weekend


any ideas?

"I saw a few sparks on the passenger side..."

It might help if you'd told us where you are in the world as even on a car using kms the passenger side can be on the left or on the right!!

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!]
