  1. Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Hi, I'm looking to buy some new tires for my 2012 that have a load index of at least 115. 120 would be nice. But I'm struggling to find any from my standard local retailers. Is there a site that I'm missing? Just purchased a 27 foot jayco and looking to tow it soon! Want to ensure that tires...
  2. Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    2016 TDI North American - stock setup. Tow about 2/3 of the interval and will be storing the vehicle for several months. Oil change coming due. Should I change before putting into storage, or right away when I'm ready to take it out of storage. Only 30k miles on the engine, so it's still...
  3. Off-Roading & Towing
    Hey gang, I need some assistance to get up and towing. I’m trying to source all the components to install a tow package on my 2013 Touareg. This is the last part that I can’t seem to find (7P1055203). Are there any alternatives under different part numbers or through Audi/Porsche that I am...
  4. Off-Roading & Towing
    I'm planning on towing a 5x8' uhaul trailer next week. In prep I decided to test my factory (or at least I think) installed harness. My TDI came with the tow package. I bought one of those little light testers that plugs into the flat 4 pin connector. My issue is that it's only showing my...

    What kind of electrical plug-in is behind 7L0803593? Took off that cover plate and found something different than expected, but couldn't see a part number on the wiring connection in the dark. Went to tow a trailer last week and found that the wiring on my 2013 Execline didn't match the...
  6. Off-Roading & Towing
    I'm in the market for a T3 or T4 TDI and one of the choices I have to make is between a lower mileage vehicle that is known to have been used for towing and a higher mileage vehicle that has not. All other things being equal, should one discount the value of a vehicle that has been known to...
  7. Off-Roading & Towing
    I did a search and was not sure if this has been covered before and was not very sure what keywords to search for, so pardon me if this was covered already! The reason for the question: I have towed with my T1 V8 that has a simple piggyback trailer light system and was not impressed with...
  8. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    2016 7P V6 3.0 diesel 180kw 8sp, 73,000km I know this is a recurring theme, but thought I’d post our experience. After towing a 3.2T van for around 25,000km on a few trips our drivetrain developed a resonant groaning sound at about 1400rpm especially when loaded, that was very disturbing...
  9. General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello all, I was pulling my camper this weekend and it started too shake/rattle at about 65+ MPH the car. Further looking into it I believe it's the rear Ujoint, if I'm wrong please advise me too what it might be ( it doesn't do this unless pulling the camper as well ). Does anyone know where I...

    Hey guys, I just got a 2010 TDI Touareg! I'm trying to find an aftermarket hitch that's properly rated, but the only ones I keep coming across are the 6k Curt ones. For now I'm just planning haul bikes around so that's not a big deal, but down the road I want to actually be able to tow a trailer...
  11. Off-Roading & Towing
    Hi, We have recently purchased a 2020 TDI Touareg and I am wanting to know if anyone has had airbag suspension added to their vehicles for towing purposes. Has it helped with levelling the car whilst towing a dual-axel caravan? I have spoken to the dealer and they have suggested speaking to...

    We just got our first Treg, my Vw mech. checked the VIN and said it’s pre-wired for towing. I ordered the hitch, mount, ball, 7 pin connector. What is the best brake controller to install ? (My wife wants to start pulling big cargo trailers and is now looking at Air Streams. I may have...

    A summary of what you should expect from your Touareg when the correct towing module is installed. Happy to append to this if I have missed something! The genuine VW tow modules does the following: Disables side assist (blind spot warning - this uses part of the rear sensors) This function...

    Hi, new to the forum. Have just purchased a 2012 and need to put a towbar (for a horse float). I have seen a few older posts about the different types genuine vs HR and wiring issues etc. I have a redarc brake unit from my old car. Can you tell me what the best option is and costs near Sydney...

    I'm new to the forum and new to RVing. The Furrion back-up camera on my Grand Design Imagine 2150 only works intermittently (two seconds of a low signal strength image then ~30 secs. of no image) with the monitor in my 2016 TDI. Furrion says their products have this problem with many foreign...

    I designed and built a Hitch receiver that can be mounted through tow hooks. Receiver is 2". Look at the pictures to get an idea. I did not test it for towing, and using it will be at your own risk. However it might be suitable for Class I towing capacity. It will also work with any bike rack...

    Hey gang! We're brand new here. And, of course, have more than a few questions. We bought our '16 Touareg, V6 Exec, with the main purpose of pulling a travel trailer, given its large 7,716 lbs. of towing capability! We've just purchased a TT that is under the Touareg's max tow limit, but, is...
