  1. AdBlue Warning / Check Engine Light

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Excellent! Thank you Nickyt. It should be apparent right after the DPF along the tail pipe. Particularly since the the dealer says he R/R'd it to find out it was clogged. Should be clean, etc. RMeuropean has part # 3CO131113C-MFG14 for $142.US, which is about $100 cheaper them most online...
  2. Goform Tires / Tyres , has anyone heard of them?

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    I know we have many members in Oz and EU. Goform is unknown in the US where I am. I need 4 new tires on my 09 TDI and have seen Goform GH18 on Ebay for $400 for a set of four. That in 275/45 19. But...I worry they'll explode or something. I've seen some good reviews on Yahoo and some random...
  3. Drive shaft bearing failure

    Australia & New Zealand
    Gads, 86,000 miles and the drive shaft bearing died. Thumped at 30 mph all of a sudden. $1,500 to replace drive shaft at dealer. Told bearing is part of shaft, must replace whole thing...bearing and shaft from VW. Is this typical? TDI $500 service card helped, but criminey.
  4. Help rear wiper water nozzle .

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Noobytoogy....I seem to have just developed the same problem on my T2. It seemed to coincide with my washer light coming on on the dash. Could you expand further on the known problem? Do I now have to prime the thing somehow? Is there a known fix? I take it from the answers above, there is...
  5. Highest Mileage V6 TDI?

    Drivers Lounge
    84k miles on 09TDI. Everything fine. Turning lamp is out. Debating replacing all lights in housing when I pull it. Thoughts?
  6. VW TDI EPA Recall (2.0L and 3.0L)

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    It's remarkable the recall atty s have found our little club. As an ad guy, I hope the site owners are charging a bundle. Portland and Seattle are both strong VW mkts. As a native Oregonian I don't feel any issues from my fellow tree huggers. This may br niaeve on my part...but I think...
  7. Would tou buy a Demo

    Drivers Lounge
    Having been in the car business once upon a time, I'd have no problem buying a demo. Most of them are the dealers own car. I disagree about abuse, particularly on higher end cars. That being said, depreciation will still be horrible. The best way to buy a car is 3 yr off lease return. But...
  8. Would tou buy a Demo

    Drivers Lounge
    If it's a demo it's never been sold or licensed. It should come with full new car warrenty. Yes?
  9. Thoughts on the New wood dash

    Drivers Lounge
    Ok....kind of a newbie question, I too love the walnut dash accents on my 09 tdi, but are they wood, veneer, or photo plastics? I've looked and really can't tell.
  10. Guy with the most posts...

    Drivers Lounge
    The guy really knows his stuff. Invaluable.
  11. Blessed to have been in Touareg

    Touareg Reviews
    http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/30/autos/jodie-kidd-cars-auto/index.html When asked which of her high end euro cars she drives when her son is in the car, supermodel Jodi Kidd said her VWTouareg. Very cool.
  12. Gas or tdi

    Touareg Reviews
    Geez....no one called anyone an idiot. I'm enjoying the thread and learning a lot. Hope it continues. Specially since us tdi types seem to be making a good case. It'll be a yr in Aug on the 09 tdi. No issues but bulbs. Small ones. Not the HIDs.
  13. Gas or tdi

    Touareg Reviews
    Yes. DEF is the Ad Blue you see referenced in this thread. Ad Blue is I believe a Mercedes trade mark. I've read that Mercedes licensed the whole tdi thing to vw to hasten diesel acceptance in US.
  14. Drivers side light marker on side view mirror

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I just clipped a pick truck mirror on a very narrow street. Right side marker light on mirror took a hit. Sounded like a gun shot and the mirror tilted/folded Buy no damage to anything other then light. Anyone know if A is this an owner serviceable part and B what repair cost would be at...
  15. How to remove trail lights on 2012 Touareg

    Touareg Exterior Mods
    Took out the 2 screws on the right rear light assembly. But it's not sliding out? Seems like being held by something on the far right side. Am I missing something? Trying to replace break light.
  16. Problem with DPF 3.0 TDI?

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Ok...kind of a newbie question...do ALL Treg diesels have DPFs? I don't think my 09 TDI does. It was delivered in Oregon in US. Don't have a vagcom, think I'd be dangerous with it. How can you tell if you have a DPF?
  17. Aftermarket Oil Filters

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Nordschleif....are you referring to the oil? Do you use Mobil 1 ESP? thinking of doing same. Don't think it meets 507 spec. I have 09 TDI.
  18. Mr lube oil change.

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I called Mobile consumer line re 09 TDI. Told that Mobil 1 ESP meets VW spec. Also told it's at Walmart! We'll it meets 505 and it is at Walmart. 29 US 5 qts. Need to check my manual. I think 505 may work. It's not 507. AND this is Mobile 1 ESP....not regular Mobile 1.
  19. VW Touareg reliability - how does it compare?

    Drivers Lounge
    Can I provide data on my 09? I don't see that year in the data. Problem free btw.
  20. Some questions on my 06 V10 diesel

    Drivers Lounge
    I have been wondering about the buttons on the side if the steering wheel center piece. I have 09 TDI and I don't think the wheel heats. I also don't think the little black buttons do anything. Any thoughts fellow Treggers?
