Sorry, guess I just noticed it! Good luck with the sale... I got exhausted with the sale of my 2008 and let it go for 14k. Just not a lot of people truly looking to buy unless it’s a deal so I gave in... my time was too valuable to try and squeeze a few K more...
Wanted to let you know I received the step motor Sat. and installed it. It seemed to do the trick. I'll be using the Treg today so, I'll know for sure. I really appreciate you turning me on to the motor, it saved me some bucks.
I'm going to see if the old motor is salvagable. If so, I'll pass it along to someone deemed worthy.
Thanks. Next question - hope you don't mind. My front passenger side door sometimes won't open - it feels like when I pull the latch (inside or outside) it just doesn't catch the mechanism. Sometimes a few gentle tries, and it works. Or I have to just drive around a bit and try again. I've just taken the door apart, down to the lock mechanism, but can't replicate the problem, or find cause. Any experience with this? I'm about to put it all back together again…. I may need to track down a used lock/latch mechanism, if I can't solve it. I haven't had the car inspected in MD yet and it won't pass if the doors don't work….
A friend recommended Auto Centro (mech Paulo Do Couto) in Rockville as a mechanic. I've met him, and liked him; he knows the V10 and has worked on it, and done a lot of Touareg work in general. Do you know of him? Any recommendations for mechanics who know the V10 well?
Thanks again, in advance. I'll buy you a beer sometime.
