Well it would seem as though I've ran over a black cat or something.
I have an 08' T2 3.0 TDI, 120K Km's, always serviced by a VW specialist in the Hill's district (Sydney)

2 weeks ago I got the knock under the floor, 2 piece bearing support from Amazon an I fixed that, $550AUD.
Yesterday it went in for a service and the following was listed by the mechanic:

Battery not holding load, $550
EGR pipe cracked and leaking exhaust gas, $230
Turbo pulsation damper leaking oil, $327 fitted
Lower intake manifolds, $3300 fitted

Wow, Ive got some research now on this forum as I'm a tinkerer and hopefully all the above can be done by myself.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

PS, still love my Touareg.

Steve

Thanks for the links, found soot around the corrugated section of the EGR pipe, oil on the plastic connection piece prior to the air intake of the turbo so those fixes seem easy once I've located correct part numbers.
As for the intake manifold, I've found an OEM full kit on EBay Germany for $600 AU.
I'm assuming it's the link between the motor and the valves. I think I'll get out the super cheap inspection camera.

Castle Hill VW dealership is quoting $693 to supply and fit a Turbo plusation dampner....that is double of what you were quoted!

Where did you get that quote? Appreciate some urgent help as I am going into the dealership tomorrow.

Bought VW battery from dealer in Brisbane $330 and fitted myself. I was quoted $2300 for replacement inlet manifolds.
Bought a swirl vane kit kit from the UK $A222.00. Will install them myself.
