    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hello, This is my first post and I have been dealing with an issue of a broken camshaft tensioner. I finally had it replaced after waiting 3 weeks weeks and the hard engine shake went away but now there is just a slight vibration that wasn't there before. The CEL is flashing instead of staying...
  2. Camshaft fault?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi, I have 2.5TDI R5 2004 Touareg, Mileage 355 000km. After engine oil change I drove about 500km. Next time when I started the car, it started ticking "tick tick tick". One strange thing is, when coolant and oil warm up and after that when you accelerate, the noise is gone. VAG - COM I...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    New to the forums (any type actually). Looking for help, advice on my car. Had an oil warning light come on in our Touareg late December of 2014. Took the car to our normal service shop and they replaced the sensor. They didn't want to do the pump service so I had the car towed to the...

  6. V6 3.6 Camshaft Removal Engine Removal Help

    General Maintenance & Repair
    The repair books say I have to remove the engine from my 2005 3.2 VR6 Touareg to replace the camshafts. It also says the engine and transmission are removed in one piece, out the bottom of the car. I don't have a lift so that is not an option. Does anyone know if I can pull just the motor out...
  7. Want to Buy: Twin Camshaft Holder T40005

    There's a bunch on ebay for about $50 shipped - But it's really a use once item, which seems like a bit of money. I'd rather buy/give the money to a fellow Touareg owner, then to a seller. Are you really going to change the belt again, if so, I'll probably still have the tool that you sold me...
