    Hello Touareg owners! I have made a small video on how to replace front brake pads and rotors You can watch the video through this link: One issue I had that you most likely won't have is the broken breaker bar. It broke because the bolts were over-torqued by the previous installer and...

    This is just another tutorial for a repair I’ve recently done on my car, to save others time with the research on how to do this. This repair is related to my other topic about the tricky vacuum actuator leak that causes the engine to run roughly right after start and whenever launching from...

    This DIY is for 7P Tregs that do not have the factory tow preparation (basically all MY15 onward Oz delivered cars). Ok so I got my tow bar installed in my shiny new treg and went to plug by tekonsha prodigy into the 4 wire plug under the dash, just like my old car, only to discover that the...

    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...

    Hello, gentlemen, I recently became a happy Treg owner. But there was an issue - power mirrors hadn't worked. Researching a lot of different forums I found out that my motors probably dead, but when I tried to move an adjustment handle I heard "working" sound. New motor on Ebay is about 80-90...

    I need to replace my passenger side front quarter panel / fender. I can't seem to find a DIY anywhere, although common sense says to remove the bumper, fender liner and the bolts under the hood, I'm just a little unsure about the ones behind the door. Has anyone done this / have any experience...

    Well, I finally took on the challenge of doing my own timing belt. I bought my treg two years ago with 50k on it. Today it has 79990 and so I knew it was time for a belt. Actually, I was kind of stressing out because of the age of the belt. I know there is some debate on this site as to whether...

    Note - I will be adding detail and pics as I get to it. I came out to my driveway to find the nose of the Touareg all the way down, with the rear in the air. I started it and the compressor ran, and then I heard a hiss from the passenger's side front. I jacked it up and checked again for the...

    Hello, I have been lurking here forever. I think I must have read a few hundred of Nickm's posts. He's awesome. In fact, when I did started this mod, I read his Kenwood rearview DIY. However, I'm sort of stuck here and it forced me to register, a good thing and a bad thing since now I suppose...
  14. General Maintenance & Repair
    Hey all, This is a general question. If I have an older car like 2003 with the old "Yellow" Lights, can I buy the Whole Xenon Headlights for both sides, not just the light but the whole Light fixture, and put it in the older car? I hope that makes sense. I don't want to just get new bulbs i want...
