Drag, had a look and ????




The site states NOT for V6 TDI (in the section headed Installation):

"Confirmed fitment for aluminum intake manifold 03L 129 711E on 2.0 liter four cylinder Common Rail TDI diesel engines (pictured on far right above). Not meant for V6 TDI."

aluminium: https://www.dieselgeek.com/P2015_Rep.../egr-p2015.htm

Black Plastic: Innovative repair bracket for Common Rail TDI fault code P2015 intake manifold flap; implausible signal for black plastic manifold

Any more suggestions?

Ouch, but US$128 (= A$166) is still cheaper than ....

Cheers

Yes, it is covered but the dealer who sold it to me are doing a wait and see thing it seems. They cleared the error code drove around for an hour, the light didn't come back on so they said, just come back if it comes back on and we will do further investigation. They said if there is an engine problem it is covered by warranty. They cleared error code 13 days ago, it hasn't come back on.....yet.

I don't know which State MsHannah is in but this is the Victoria Legalisation. Other States have similar Legalisation.

The Engine light going out would be a good thing, you would think..

Seems like this is well covered by now, but I'll throw in my two cents -

1. As @JimJ said, if the light comes back on, take it to VW. Don't just stop at getting the code readout and report, get a full estimate for repair also.

2. Then go to the Ford dealer, and show them the estimate and report. If the selling dealer is responsible for the repair, and the repair is covered under warranty, there should be nothing preventing the Ford dealer from contracting the repair to VW - press them to do exactly this. The money passes through the Ford dealer to VW - Ford isn't going to make a dime on a warranty repair anyway. They have plenty of Fords to repair as it is.

The reasoning is, VW Touareg TDIs are special beasts. I would not trust a non-VW dealer to repair a VW vehicle, least of all one that's designed by VW's master engineers to fool regulatory agencies worldwide. That, and a VW dealer will have the experience to complete the repair (certainly a Sydney VW dealer has done many such repairs by now) and the correct diagnostic equipment to validate the fix, probably with a lower chance of screwing something else up in the process. Clearly your Ford dealer doesn't want to be in the business of fixing your VW over and over, and neither do you want to see the Ford service manager more than you see your new Touareg.

At the very least, find a good independent VW mechanic who has experience working on the 3.0L TDI and strongly encourage the Ford dealer contract out to them.

They're great vehicles, and hopefully you've seen the last of this particular issue. My 2010 Touareg has been a trustworthy Sherpa, always ready when I need it and totally reliable - I hope the rest of your ownership experience is similarly enjoyable.

Thanks Stabone33 for reading through my disjointed comments to work out my issue. At this point (removed error 10/3/17) 15 days later the light still has not come back on, I'm hoping this is a good sign, as if there were major problems it would have come back on by now? hmm right. I like your advise if light come back on to go to my local VW mechanic get read out and quote. The Ford group I bought it off said "If the light comes back on, we'll book it in and check it out". They also said that they would want to do the work because they can do it cheaper (Ford guy said this). If the issue did come back up again do I have right to say I want my local VW mechanic to fix it? Just trying to think ahead here.

Thanks for the link, that's great, even though I'm in Sydney they would be similar..

The light hasn't come back on and it's been 15 days.....It cost me $110.00 to diagnose the EGR, cooler replacement issue and give verbal quote $2,300. There is no code reader no. on the invoice. Again though Ford whom I bought car off turned off the light and said if it comes back on, to come back and they will look into it...
