  1. Eyelet Bolts for Vehicle Recovery

    OK, yes, it makes sense now! Thank you!
  2. Eyelet Bolts for Vehicle Recovery

    Off-Roading & Towing
    USA resident here. What's a bridle?? (Yes, I tried a quick google search and got nothing but doggies!)
  3. '04 Touareg LED conversion kit Help

    Touareg DIY and Technical Info
    I agree. It looks like you already have the (very good) HID bulbs housing. Pony up the $ and get HID bulbs. The genuine ones will last longer and be the correct color, etc. But I've also used generics and been quite happy with their color, out put and longevity. YMMV.
  4. touareg OFF ROAD video compilation

    Off-Roading & Towing
    The Toyota "electronic diff lock" really shows its limits. (Jerking the spinning wheel to try to gain traction on the other side) Do you have the locking rear diff? I didn't notice your rear wheels having a problem. Poor Blizzaks. They're not meant for mudding! LOL!!
  5. euro headlamp switch

    Touareg Exterior Mods
    You can get generic ones on Amazon as well. It's a knockoff for sure, but mine seems to be working fine.
  6. battery dying

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I suspect the battery is toasted. :- ( But if you have a second vehicle, you can remove it and take it to a parts store and have them test it for you first. But expect to buy a new one.
  7. Lift kit / spaced lift

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Just make a few more posts and I think you can PM members. We'll understand. :- )
  8. Anyone Have a Offroad Tent Trailer?

    Off-Roading & Towing
    OZ is slang for Australia. And whatever you do, for the love of god, don't call 'em Kiwis. :- p Just like you don't shout "Go Rams!" in the middle of Pearl Street Mall. :- )
  9. What are you running on your 19” wheels

    Off-Roading & Towing
    If you really want more sidewall, you're going to have to change wheels. When you say "rides like crap", what do you mean? A low profile tire will handle slightly better than a larger sidewall, all other things being equal. A larger sidewall will only give you a softer ride if you slightly...
  10. AC/Heating House of Cards nightmare

    General Maintenance & Repair
    The blower motor is not too difficult to replace. IIRC, it's 5mm bolts and you'll need a deep (long) socket or an extension. Then wiggle the motor housing out and wiggle the new one back in. For me, it wasn't worth the hassle to try to replace the brushes and risk having to do the job all over...
  11. Dragline Sump plate

    Off-Roading & Towing
    The shipping to the USA was very reasonable. Esp. with a bunch of them going to one location.
  12. Non dual range off road

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Since you don't have mountains to contend with, you will probably be fine without low range. Normally, I say don't leave home without it. The newer Toauregs seem to have a lower 1st gear than the first 2 generations and in my experience, even my 2008 (6 speed slush box) seems to lock the torque...
  13. For Sale: Touareg Side Skirts

    Posting up a general location might help. The continental USA is a HUGE area and shipping from Alaska or Hawaii will be $$$$. :- )

    Will it show short to ground if he headlight module is unplugged?

    What does VCDS say? Do you have a bulb out error on the dashboard display?
  16. What to buy.. T1 V8 vs T2 V8

    Touareg Reviews
    I use my air suspension all the time. Load level works great when, well, loading cargo. Or passengers who can't climb in as easily as others. Sport mode is nice to lower the vehicle at drive up ATMs. Extra height mode for going through car washes and of course, 4 wheeling! If you don't think...
  17. Advice for a Future Owner

    Australia & New Zealand
    17" wheels are the "smallest" that you can fit for what you're looking for. Gas tank hanging down??? Sure you're not looking at the "suitcase" muffler in the rear? The gas tank is under the rear seats and straddles the rear drive shaft. The Touareg bottom is pretty flat, actually. I sought out...
  18. What to buy.. T1 V8 vs T2 V8

    Touareg Reviews
    T2 V8 owner here. I think if you had access to both, I'd recommend the T2 because, as mentioned, you have the FSI motor. More power, newer tech and no more timing belt. The FSI motor has a timing chain that does not need to be replaced on a regular basis. Be aware that with a T2, you'll lose...
  19. 2013 Touareg Tow Bar

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Non North American hitch weights are lower than North America, I think. That is why they can use something like that. I like that it provides more clearance when not in use. But I also rely on my USA 2" receiver style hitch to let me know if I'm dragging my rear when 4 wheeling! ;- )
