Thanks for that. It sounds awful. I hope you get it sorted. How many kilometers on your Touareg V10?

Hey Pete - yeah it's all fixed now, this video was taken a little over 2 years ago. Meant to post it sooner but life, work and kiddos took precedence. It had a little over 200k miles, I thought the video had the mileage.

What I found interesting is that this isn't just a VW issue, most Pump Duese engines have this same problem. I worked at a Volvo/Mack engine rebuild center a few years back and the majority of the new 16L Pump Duese design engines started coming in for a rebuild way before the older designs. We rebuilt engines from the construction and on-road industry. Most of the engines had already thrown a rod or had completely destroyed themselves by the time they came to us.

Thanks for the video, that really clears up what to listen for regarding cam failure.

What replacement cams did you use?
OEM? Colt? Other?

I bought the kit below from Lymm Engine Components in the United Kingdom. The cams are from an OE supplier out of Belgium I believe, and the kit includes everything needed for the job. At the time of my repair, Colt cams was putting together a regrind for the BWF and they had a ship date of 6 months out, I used our Touareg for our business and needed it back on the road.
