    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi all- I can't get my passenger side headlights working again on my '05 Touareg. I've replaced the bulbs and the fuses. The little orange light and the turn signal are still working, but that's it. Anything else DIY I could try before taking it to the shop?

  10. Inside/Outside Headlamps

    Drivers Lounge
    My wife and I recently purchased an '05 V6 Touareg. When I say recently, I mean a month ago this Friday. This is important because we still haven't taken possession of the vehicle, but I'll rant on that later... My question is about the headlamps. During the test drive she (I was home sick)...
