  1. Lux vs. Executive Trim Questions

    Drivers Lounge
    Given the years that I'm likely to end up with, an exec is probably the only way I'll find all of those features because optioned out Lux's seem tough to find and the requirements might not be possible on a 12 Lux. Now, I'm fighting through crappy listings that just say "2012 Touareg TDI" and...
  2. Bass goes away/minimized when rolling down windows/moonroof?

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    Hi, So I'm not in a T3 yet but my thought is that there is potentially a bit of sound cancelation from the acoustics of the cabin changing. The way to see if it's an electronic circumstance is to observe it at lower ground speed with the engine at a similar rpm. Are you saying it literally...
  3. Lux vs. Executive Trim Questions

    Drivers Lounge
    Also, might be worth adding, I'm leaning towards a 2013 MY. Price falls right into what I'm willing to spend. The year isn't set in stone but it's a few years from the initial launch and that might equate to some increased reliability.
  4. Lux vs. Executive Trim Questions

    Drivers Lounge
    So this is awesome. I got a lot of data here from you all. What I've quickly gathered is that I am in the market for an Exec, or a rather specifically optioned Lux. Some of those options are definitely just preference. Having the heated wheel currently makes it really hard to not try to get...
  5. obdeleven? whats u guys think vag-com alternative?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    OBD11 saved me a massive parts bill when the clip holding a level sensor broke, allowing the sensor to dangle on the front right corner. This persuaded the car to lower the front end to the bump stops. Found the fault, reattached the sensor, no need for a new one, no dealer trip, no downtime...
  6. what do you guys do for living?

    Off-Topic Forum
    I'm an IT guy for a school district in mid-Michigan. Working on my degree(slowly) in civil engineering, maybe make the roads a little smoother for the Treg.
  7. 04 V8 T1 W/Air Suspension - Blinking Diff Selector or ABS/Brake lights blinking

    General Maintenance & Repair
    This sounds like a textbook example of a situation to scan it through VCDS. As I sit here thinking about it, have you investigated the stepper motor? Do you occasionally put it in low range and make it work a little? Is there a level sensor that might be causing this? -NAT
  8. 2004 v8 fuel pump change

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I'm thinking back a while so I might be mistaken but doesn't that hose connect to a short hose on the other end? Those should have a pretty decent acceptable bend radius which should let you stuff everything into the tank. Do you have any pictures of this that might help illustrate the problem...
  9. How do you tell what brake rotors you have on your Touareg?

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    What's the special for just fronts? Rears look pretty good on mine.
  10. How do you tell what brake rotors you have on your Touareg?

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Has anyone noticed if Pagid brake pads produce any more dust than another brand? I'm getting my RockAuto cart loaded up to do mine and have some time to hear what kinds of experiences others have had. Anything against Power Stop 330mm rotors? Thanks!
  11. What do u tow? Post pic of trailer.

    Off-Roading & Towing
    My family has a hobby farm that grows hops for Michigan breweries. Gotta haul the crop with something! My 2005 V8 Air almost doesn't notice the trailer.

    OK, I found a thread on CT. This guy did a good job at explaining how this works and mentions some additional caution that I forgot about. I felt like a total pro after I had this happen on the...

    HOLD UP. This can be much easier. Mine did the EXACT same thing and it's quite simple. On your upper control arms, you'll see your level sensors for the EAS and headlights. This is a cheaply made butterfly clip held component that falls down. So what likely happened is: One fell down and...
  14. 2005 Toureg Air Suspension Maintenance?

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    I know this is an old thread but I have been keeping an eye on the fittings on each shock that meets an air line. I've heard they can corrode but some care will keep that at bay. Also, level sensors. I have one zip tied to the arm mimicking the clip because if those get unplugged you have to...

    Do you have the shifter assembly in good condition? Mine has torn rubber in the tracks so I can't manually shift through gears or use sport mode. Thanks!

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I got lucky when my V8 did this. I opened and FIRMLY closed all the doors, including hatch, and the alert went away. I assume a sticking door button was the problem but it has been fault free for months after doing this. For what it's worth. Super quick and totally free to try.
  17. Centre bearing failure

    Australia & New Zealand
    Hello from Michigan. I've just replaced(yes, replaced) the bearing on my center shaft in lieu of the vertex fix. The problem I'm facing is getting the bearing bracket properly aligned. It's slightly off and after playing with it, I've determined it is the bearing not being in the right place...
  18. Stop fault running gear, air suspension stuck high rear

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    A good starting place for other suspension related issues are the level sensors which, when the clip breaks that holds one end to the upper control arm, the car will assume it's not level and in a misguided attempt to fix itself, dropped the front end to the bump stops. By reattaching(not...
  19. Who has the most miles on their Touareg?

    152,000 miles on my 05 V8

    do you have EAS? If so, I'm interested in the knobs in the center console. Also, push button start?
