You might need to get the cams checked too. These car are know for cam going out if not looked after properly. You might need new cam and lifters.

I am sorry but if you cannot understand what you are looking at, for your own good do not take anythings apart.


Both inlet and exhaust valves have hydraulic compensated bucket lifters and being hydraulic are not adjustable.
The adjustable rocker you see is the fuel injector arm.

This topic should be labeled "how to kill a v10 in no time"....

OP, not trying to bust your nuts dude, but I would strongly suggest reading a bunch of SSPs and service manuals before diving into the kind of wrenching you're doing.....

You were given good advice by Drag who knows his V10s better than 99.9% of VW technicians worldwide!

You've bought a car with a very complex supercar engine - it's not a vehicle for the faint-hearted, nor DIYers with minimal mechanical skills, nor anyone on a budget.

The engine has been squeezed into a small space too such that for some routine replacements where normally you would unbolt the part, remove it and fit the new item, on the V10 the engine has to be dropped for access.

Since those who have contributed so far have no knowledge of how good you are when let loose with a set of wrenches they've very sensibly - and quite rightly - counselled caution on your behalf so don't get the hump over the responses.

Here's the best thread ever on how to rebuild a V10. Have a look at it and you'll hopefully understand why people have tried to warn you off doing anything on this engine without being certain of what you are looking at and attempting to rectify.

For a few euros you can buy an hour of time here, insert your VIN and download everything you need for your specific car.

Read this thread too - it will probably save you money at some stage:

http://www.mytreg.com/index.php?/topic/10163-buying-a-used-touareg-what-to-look-for/

And do check you car is using EXACTLY the CORRECT engine oil to avoid premature camshaft lobe wear.

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!]

Was not trying to be rude just cautious.
If you look and download there is plenty of info available.
