Howdy folks-
I've got a 2006 V10 that I picked up a few months ago and decided to tackle the gooey intakes, throttle bodies, and EGR valves. Now, after pulling the alternator and oil filter/cooler assembly to clean the mess under there and collect a dropped bolt or two... It is time to put everything back together. I'm picking up either Elsawin or a Bentley manual since I like the Touareg and will be doing more maintenance for sure, but I need a few torque specs to get the current project complete. Can anyone supply torque values for the following?

Alternator mounting bolts (x4)
Oil filter/cooler mounting bolts (x4)
Fuel Rail mounting bolts (x10)
Intake manifold bolts (x18)
EGR cooler mounting bolt (X1)
Oil filter upper housing mounting bolts (x4)
Throttle body, EGR valve to intake mounting bolts (x8)
Tandem pump to head mounting bolts (x3)
EGR pipes to EGR cooler bolts (x8)

I did search through the forum and found a few miscellaneous torque values and they are listed below for convenience to others.
Glow Plugs -18NM
Fuel filter drain screw (2006 version) -5NM

I'm going to call my local dealer to see if they will supply some numbers as well. I've got a the sympathies of the parts dept and a few techs... I'll update with any numbers identified.

Thanks!!!

Phone call to dealer went well. I should have an update later today. Also, it seems that an 8 followed by a close parenthesis is a shortcut to a happy face 8)... I bet my daughter knew that. Sorry folks.

Fuel Rail mounting bolts (x10) -8NM + 90 degrees
Intake manifold bolts (x18 ) -20NM
EGR cooler mounting bolt (X1) -40NM, but questionable
Oil filter upper housing mounting bolts (x4) -8NM
Throttle body, EGR valve to intake mounting bolts (x8 ) -8NM
Tandem pump to head mounting bolts (x3) M6 is 8NM, M8 is 20NM
EGR pipes to EGR cooler bolts (x8 ) -20NM

Fuel filter drain screw (2006 version) -5NM

Big Thanks to Wil at Uptown VW!
