I think the OP of this thread had a problem with the last sensor, which has obviously to cope with the lowest temperatures of them all, so, the soldering method might possibly work and be safe there, but might not work more upward the exhaust pipe.

Also, VW doesn't recommend soldering any electrical wires, not even at places not exposed to extreme thermal stress, but instead instructs in the service manuals to use crimped joints to connect wires when cut or partially replaced. So, I'd suggest doing that also in this case, if one decides to use this hack instead of removing the engine/transmission.
Valid points and concerns, but technically, there's all sorts of "solder" with various properties, and one could essentially add all sort of heat shielding, etc. if they wanted to solder connections, etc......

Regardless, no point in discussing those details since at this point, I'm not really convinced that the OP has tracked down the exact root cause of his issues, or the correct sensor.

Have a read through this guys for some clues..... you may want to do some additional investigations to determine which sensor\probe is wacky before you pull the trigger on any fixing.....

I mean I've never actually worked on a V10 engine, but to me it seems that that particular sensor should be accessible from the top even while the engine is still in the engine bay. I've also taken a look at the repair manual, and that doesn't mention having to drop the engine for that sensor either, while it does for the other ones more down the pipe.

If I were in the situation I'd double check with some other source whether the engine really needs to be dropped for the exhaust manifold temperature sensor replacement, because it doesn't look to me like it would be needed. Then again I could be wrong.

I wish VW dealers were that "SMART". Anything that is not visible on top of the engine, VW wants to pull the motor out. They can't even do the cam-shafts without taking the motor out, this sensor is below the head cover, so they can not possibly comprehend doing it while motor is in place.

OK so I finally had to take my Treg to the guys in OH. Yes my new found "best friends" . It looks like i was experiencing a "cause and effect" situation. The guys tested every conceivable sensor and all were working perfectly. The next option was to clean the the DPF even though it was only showing 80gm. The fault, so far, after 3 days of testing has not re-appeared. The mechanic thinks that since the Stage 2 Colt Cams put out more volume of exhaust, the DPF was not able to handle it with the soot in place so after cleaning them the exhaust gases can flow freely. I hope this is the solution, as I would not like to drive all the way back to OH again.
