Hi,

I have a customer that is wanting to install one of our Fumoto Engine Oil Drain Valves in his Touareg R5 2007.

Has been difficult to get this info from the dealers and I thought the experts in this group might know! ;)

1- Is the sump plug recessed?

2- What is the size on the sump plug, 14mm-1.5?

Thanks

1. Yes, it is slightly recessed and I think you might have difficulty in fitting the valve in there without some sort of an extension.

2. Yes, it's M14x1.5x22long

Hi Siberian,

How's the weather in Alaska at this time of year, must be cozy? ;)

It looks like all engines take the same size valve F106 (14mm-1.5) but I think they might need to use an extension ADP106 since most or all will have recessed plugs.

Since you are in the US it would be cheaper for you to get it from a dealer in the US.

Fishing sounds good I might hook myself a killer whale ;-)

I think a cruise in summer would be a great first visit to Alaska!

I will wave from the cruise ship if I see a Touareg driving around ;-)

See Ya

SUMMER??????? What a wuss, I thought you Aussies were made of stiffer stuff. The Yukon Quest and the Quest 300 starts Saturday, as per usual we're predicting temps in the high -40s...

Seems there's 3 Touaregs now in Fairbanks. Just saw one the other day in town... good to know in case one needs parts :cool:

Peter, FYI, there seem to be some V6TDI models that have an M24 drain plug, but AFAIK, all the others have the M14 one.
