I`ve totally lost confidence in VW Altrincham- reasons why:
1. quoted £2500 to repair air con. Engine out and new compressor-NO THANK YOU
I had a new battery fitted a few months later and Hey Presto air con worked fine
2. quoted £1400 for new prop shaft - "comes in one piece , can`t just get bearing" they said
I sourced Fireow in Holmes Chapel who WILL repair or supply refurbished @ £175 fitted
3 quoted £350 to sort out non opening tailgate - smash rear light cluster etc
Job done ( new solenoid) for £50 - no smashed tail light!
4 quoted £450 for new wheel bearing
I got the job done for £150.00

Now I use VAG TECHNIK independent in Eccles 0161 707 2282

Why would anyone smash the rear light cluster to manually release the tailgate if you have the keys to the car and can climb into the back to pull off the rear light cover to access the manual toggle?

And VW dealers only fit new prop shafts - they won't change the bearing - but the price should be just over £1,000.

For any West Yorkshire based members - I've been using Revolution Porsche, Brighouse.,

The business, which has just been expanded to include a workshop in the Leeds area, is owned by partners Russ Stanley, & Gareth Merrick (Top blokes).

Gareth is the VW Master Technician, & has a wealth of knowledge on all things Touareg.

I have not had any major work done there yet (Thank god), but Gareth tells me they have repaired a good number of Prop shafts & gear boxes with Valve Chest problems.

In September 2016 I had a service, which included the following...

* Oil Filter
* Cabin Filter
* Fuel Filter
* Air Filter

* Brake fluid Change

* Gearbox oil & Filter
* Diff Oils Changed

I also had the faulty rear passenger door lock diagnosed, & the lock module replaced.

All parts used were OEM. Labour £60/hr generally but for most things none Porsche (VW/Audi etc) they knock 20% off.

I supplied my own engine oil, as I'd purchased it some weeks prior.

Total bill was £832.

BUMP on this

Anybody found any great Indie VW specialists that can carry work out on the Trouareg in and around the Manchester area? or very West Yorkshire way?

Theres loads of VW specialists in Manchester, but they're more the Awesome GIT Tuning type specialists.

Thank you
