Well, it happened. I threw my timing bely on my 2006 VW Touareg one week before I had it slotted to repair. I knew what it was before I even finished coasting to a stop. sickening. I loved that car (apparently not enough or I would have never allowed this to happen) anyway, after a month of pouting about it, feeling sorry for myself and searching out my options, I decided to not only get rid of her, but to prolong the torture by parting her out. Just got back from Denver with my "new" ride. (2008 Audi Q7 4.2 FSI) and now I must begin the painful task of dismantling the T-reg.


Considering, I became a ClubTouareg member soon after buying the car (2012) and having benefited from much information and advice on here, it only seems fitting to offer up the salvaged parts to my fellow club members first.
And hopefully at a fair price that will please both me and you guys (and gals). I'm also interested in gauging the demand for certain parts by your input via private messages, responding to a thread I started earlier this evening in the "newcomers" section of the forums or any other means that holds within the boundaries put in place by our gracious hosts.


I will entertain any reasonable offers for batch purchases or specific needs if possible. what I got is a 2006 (gunmetal) "offroad gray" factory paint color code: LSTD7U Touareg fully loaded complete with air ride suspension, OE roof rack, Napa leather "comfort" seats, winter package, power everything, central locking keyless entry system, three spare key FOBs, Vavona wood decorative inserts, comfort bumpers with chrome plated strips, six-disc CD changer, DVD Navigation system, complete Bentley service manual on CD with packaging, 20'' turbo wheels with 70% plus tire tread, spare tire, full set replacement brakes (NIB) and a power plant with all parts and components fully intact and functional. (except the engine which has the aforementioned broken timing belt). Its been a great car and does not deserve such a uneventful death. ( would have prefered a high speed chase across the Mexican boarder or a high interest bank robbery. Maybe something involving a ramp and the Grand Canyon hell I don't know.


But, it is what it is...


Thanks for your time and consideration,

Is the rubber on the shift column still intact? I need one. What is your preferred payment method? Does it have push-button start?

Thanks and sorry about the damage. I just did the same job and feel blessed to have mine still on the road.

Sorry to read about this. I've just bought one and I need a couple of things. Maybe you might have them still.

I need parts to fix a rear console assembly. I need the storage compartment that's under the air ducts, the left and right blank covers where optional seat heater controls would be and the flip out power outlet that goes in between the covers (or seat heaters).
I need a chrome bumper skuff strip. Mine has a crack.
I need a gray rear cargo cover. (i didn't see where you mentioned the color of your interior, mine is anthracite.)
I don't need but could use a hitch receiver (and trailer wiring harness too, if you had one installed)

The dealer is supposed to provide also new right front wheel well liner and mirror switch, but I may need those too.

Please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it.
John

I have an '08 T2, but I think what i am asking for should work, except maybe the mirror switch. I don't have the folding mirror option.

P.S.

It has the power seat & mirror memory package power passenger seat, 4 zone HVAC & rear seat heaters as well...the thing is loaded.
It was in the VW lease program it's whole life (before me) that some dealer out west spec'ed it out with everything. Even dealerships here in St.Louis cannot believe all the options packed into this thing...if it was available in 2006, it's got it.

I'm interested in the headlights, and interior parts, depending on the color. Sorry about the bad luck...

slow to respond

my apologies to those that have expressed interest in my car. Not sure where to start. Let me just say, I still have it and have not begun to tear it down yet. I have been extremely busy lately with unforeseen personal distractions. (again, my apologies) Please be patient with me and i assure each of you i will respond to all inquires. Personally, i would prefer to sell it outright or perform the needed repairs. both these options have proved to be complicated. (as im sure most of you are aware)
Furthermore, this forum has proved to difficult to navigate as well. it seems i cannot post threads through the app on my iphone in response to your messages (for some reason) and even have difficulty on the full site. not completely sure why.
Anyway, i will attempt to address these issues soon.
thank you for your patience.
