  1. T2 2010 Touareg V6 TDI Excessive Vibration at all engine speeds

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello, I have this strange issue with my Touareg that I've been battling since I've owned it. When the A/C compressor is on, there is an excessive vibration that can be felt at any RPM and wheel speed. The vibration remains the same and is quite frustrating on longer road trips because it can...
  2. PSA: Check your refrigerant hose for corrosion

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Just another PSA that could possibly help you locating a problem point whenever you encounter the symptoms, or what's even better, prevent the problem from rearing its ugly face in the first place with some simple maintenance. So, the other day my A/C stopped working and the fault code was the...
  3. Type of A/C refrigerant

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I just bought a 2005 V6 Touareg for my daughter about 3 weeks ago. Air blowing out of the vents is cool, but not cold. It never seems to really cool the interior. I thought about checking the freon charge, but wanted to verify with someone who is more familiar with these cars what type to use...

  5. Sqealing A/C/?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I own a 2004 V6, and I recently began getting a "squealing" noise when the A/C is running. I just had the 80,000-mile maintenance a couple of months ago. Any ideas what this could be? Is there a cheap fix?

  8. Air Conditioning Refrigerant Hose Leak

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I finally charged my A/C for the first time on the Touareg only to discover an audible leak near the driver front wheel. Put her in Xtra high jack mode and took off the wheel well cover to see where the refrigerant was leaking from. Found the part on jim ellis vw parts schematic and ordered it...

  10. Climatronic temperature disparity

    Drivers Lounge
    The new 2013 Touareg is great, one puzzling thing that happens though is after running with a/c and sync'ed passenger driver temp (usually 69-72 deg F), the drivers side will begin blowing heat and the passengers side blowing very cold. It happened yesterday with the lead tech for the local VW...
  11. Smell coming from a/c when starting car

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello, When I start my '11 Treg I smell what seems like a paint smell coming from the A/C. If you don't start the A/C, I don't smell it, so I know it's coming from the A/C vents. Anyone else notice this? If so, what did you do? Maybe change the cabin air filter? The best way I could describe...
  12. A/C Compressor read 250 low 500 high

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I had my car in for a tire repair, and while it was there, I asked them to recharge the A/C since it had been blowing warm. And TirePros was charging $129 while Prestige in Santa Rosa wanted over $300. The tech charged the A/C and said the low/high pressure should have been around 35/200 but...
  13. Manual A/C not working all of a sudden

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi All, I have a 2006 Touareg V6, with manual A/C, yesterday night it was working fine, but today in the morning, went for a ride and the A/C was blowing only hot air, went to check it, the Ferion is fine, and the mechanic checked it on AutoBoss and it gave him some thing like "Activating air...
  14. Very Noisy Fan

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I recently had my low-pressure tube replaced on my AC, since then my engine fan has run at extremely high speeds when the AC/Heat is running. Unlike previous issues with the fan speed the fan stops running if the AC is turned off, or if still running when the car is turned off. What is even...
  15. Refigerant Low! How much refigerant do I need?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    It finally hit 100 degrees in Kansas City, MO today and my EGG's A/C is not cooling down properly. After reading several of other posts, I am left with the conclusion that I need refrigerant. I agree! If I am low how much do I need to charge my EGG up to?
  16. Air con blows lots of air on start-up until car warms up

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi, My air con blows air flat out on start-up until car warms up to a certain temp (say 10 mins later). I have no way during this time of stopping the air. Any thoughts? Chris
  17. A/C Blower motor

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I just replaced mine with a new one after the old one stopped working. (I lubricated it a few times and it only prolonged the inevitable.) My problem now is that when I start the car, the fan seems to blow at full speed when I put it in auto. However, after about a minute or two, it seems to...
  18. A/C failed suddenly

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi all, My wife was running errands in her 2004 V6 last weekend. In between short trips the A/C went from working perfectly (very cold) to not at all (blowing outside temp air). It's not the end of the world here in Seattle :D but I need to get it going again. Because it was so sudden, I...
  19. '04 Touareg A/C

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I have an '04 Touareg V8 and I travel between Dallas and Houston regularly. After about 250 miles, the a/c stops blowing air (or blows very, very little almost not detectable), not cold either. After parking for a while, maybe an hour, its back again. I think I recall reading somewhere about...
  20. Plugged A/C drain

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Cert. 2004 Touareg V6: I have noticed (after a hot day) that there is significant water under the passenger side floor matts. After reading several notes from other members, it appears as a plugged or disconnected AC drain. Has anyone ever successfully cleared or re-connected this ?
