    Hi all, I need to know what kind of diffs are in my car to buy oil for replacement. Specifically I need to know if I have a Limited Slip Diff... I read a great post that told me to look for codes on the build sheet but my build sheet is nowhere to be found. I'm in Australia and the build date...
  3. General Maintenance & Repair
    I need to replace the front differential on my 2004 V8. How can I make sure I’m buying the proper one? I see a code on mine of “0AA409507D-GMN” so I am assuming any V8 with that stamped on the bottom will be compatible? I know they’re not the same across V6, V8, and V10. Need this done ASAP...
  4. General Maintenance & Repair
    Doing the suspension on my 04 V8 and noticed I had a leak. Upon further inspection, it looks like the front driver side axle has pulled out of the differential? Does anyone have any advice on this? Should I be able to pop it back in? Or is the differential at its end? For reference, the car...
  5. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Front diff went out last month, slowly started to grind. My fault not replacing the fluid, I run her pretty hard and have towed my trailer prob 20k miles. I found a donor Audi that Ebay said would be compatible, it sure fit, but the gear ratio has to be off. I thought we had it licked, ran...
  6. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Good day folks, I’m back with a new issue. I just jacked up my toureg today for checking out the conditions of the drive shaft and i hear this sound from the rear differential . i had recently changed my transmission oil but haven’t changed my differential oils at all .The sound is pretty loud...
  7. Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    There is some kind of ball joint, cv joint, control arm/bushings, steering linkage, or tie rod ends. I don't know enough myself to figure out what it is. could it be the joint at the bottom of the steering column? I don't know for sure. Something is up though... because it's driving sloppy. FYI...
  8. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hey guys- recently brought my vehicle to VW dealership to diagnose and fix two issues. I have a grinding noise/feeling and I'm almost positive it's only happening on right hand turns. Something is legit grinding. I think it's up in the front end but then every so often i can't tell if it's...
  9. General Maintenance & Repair
    A huge shout out to Gnits as his post for Transmission, Differential, and Transfer Case fluid changes for first generation Touareg’s was spot on. I am updating this for the second generation. Specifically, I own a 2015 VW Touareg TDI with 127,000 miles. I am the second owner and the engine oil...
  10. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hey everyone, I'm getting a sticking feeling once in a while after driving the vehicle (usually after I drive it a little harder than usual)... when I am pulling back into my underground parking and doing tight turns at low speeds the rear wheels and/or differential is binding up and sticking...
  11. General Maintenance & Repair
    I'm feeling a lot of strain on the axles and/or propeller shaft(s) in two situations. 1. When I am beginning to accelerate away from a complete stop. The vehicle often feels "jumpy" in this situation where it feels as if power is not going to each wheel correctly or something of that nature...

    EPC light has been on for a while. When taken to VW dealer they said the error codes were a right front abs sensor, and a back brake light switch. They also said they would have to start with replacing those things first to see if that was it. But it could be a much more complicated problem...
  14. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Maybe this is a noob question, but how would one figure out if the Touareg that they just bought had a locking rear differential? I've been lurking for a while and searching for info, but I finally decided to post to find the answer to this one.
  15. General Maintenance & Repair
    I have a 2005 V6 Touareg, and I figured it was time to change out the differential oil and transfer case since I'm around 90k miles, and I don't believe it has been done based on my prior service records yet. I was looking into many different options and settled on going with Royal Purple...
  16. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Can someone please help me out! I just took my vehicle into the VW dealer and they said that it sounded like my front differential was broken. There is a load "roaring" noise in the front end. I asked them how they can tell if it's that or if it's a wheel bearing. They said that there was...
  17. General Maintenance & Repair
    I have recently purchased a 2004 T-reg V6 and since I have gotten it I've noticed 2 problems/symptoms. 1/ When I am at a stop (ex: in a parking lot), I I turn the wheel to take a 90 degree turn at creepy crawly speeds, something along the drive shaft or power train seems to be...
  18. General Maintenance & Repair
    I own a 2008 v6 touareg and was wondering what the torque ratio that the drivetrain uses, is more torque applied to the rear or to the front. I know some suv use a 60/40 ratio or 70/30 rear to front?
  19. General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi all, I am new to the forum. I just purchased an 09 TDI on VW CPO and am really happy with it so far. The locking differential was important to me. I just tried the locking center differential and the 4WD indicator shows ONLY the FRONT wheels -and- the white dot in the center differential. No...

    So there are many posts about offroading on here but i still need help understanding. I have an '04 v6 Treg and live in the pacific northwest US. I drive to the mountains to snowboard through lots of snow and ice. I really want a clear response on what all my controls need to be set at when...
