  1. 05 V8 Touareg Transmission Valve Body

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    I just purchased a Touareg with transmission problems for very very cheap, and I had a few questions. I am experiencing no gear changes in drive, for example when accelerating after I hit about 15-17 mph when it feels like I'm about to shift instead its like I have gone into neutral. I also have...

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Hi, I need to replace the valve body of gearbox of my R5 TDI (year 2005), but I can't find anything fitting on any autoparts sale site. It seems there are a lot of replacements for V6 and V8, but R5 is hard to come by. Any suggestions? Maybe correct Part Number or any online shop selling it...

    Gas/Electric/Hybrid/Powertrain | V6, V8, W12, FSI
    I have an 04 V8 that experienced the 1 to 2 slam and occasional 5 to 4 bump. I had the VB replaced with new at the VW dealership a couple of years back.
