Hello,

I am new here and have had my Touareg since May 2015. I love it and wouldn't want a different SUV.

Recently I have had a check engine light for my intake manifold flap controller being stuck. I took it to my local VW Dealer and the service desk said I need to buy a new manifold. There is no way around it. $1,800!!!

Is this true? I only have 79,200 miles on it.

Let me know.

Thanks
Grey08

I'm not sure where these manifolds tend to seize up (I know the non-fsi v8s had issues), but I don't see why you can't clean it. The flaps are easily accessible with the manifold removed, and you can even split the manifold right open if needed.

If its the actuator itself, they're mounted on the front and are easily accessible.

I had mine replaced under warranty, I believe the rod going inside the motor got stuck. I saw a good post here a few years ago with pictures on how to service the rod.

Here are a couple of pictures for my 2008 FSI 4.2/Users/JAlfaro/Desktop/IMG_1101.jpg/Users/JAlfaro/Desktop/IMG_1099.jpg
