Hi Cass ,

Image of manual gear-lever , attached , (not mine,)

will post one when possible

Thanks for brochure ,

looks like will have to bite the bullet and purchase the linkage as well as the gear-lever

getting mine repaired I.E. furniture restorer , to much trouble taking it off repairing split, etc
easier to buy a used item,

Maybe a chippy could turn you a new one with recess for gear layout insert, probably cheaper than getting all the linkage

A complete linkage just for the knob is ludicrous
.

Talk to a car trimmer have it fully covered in leather, sewn on in situ, nicer than wood and cheaper.

You can't really need the positions diagram if you're familiar with the car now ?

Hi Klewy

Thank you for your suggestion

I have thought about having a new one turned on a lathe ,
not sure what would be involved in taking apart the old one

Hi Sarakina

To your suggestion of having it trimmed in leather ,
i like to keep it original
Thought about buying a leather one as fitted to the passat , look very similar
and having mine repaired (restored)

I will just keep on looking , i might be lucky an find one

The part you are looking for is 7L6 711 113.
There are variants with different suffixes for different trims.
The wood version has the suffix “F”

When mine was less than 2 years old the knob was replaced under warranty for the same reason - split.

Have you priced the part from a VW dealer and have you searched Touareg breakers in Europe (although I’d again guess that manual models would again be in small numbers) :huh:

Manual gearbox Touaregs are thin on the ground in europe as they are here
I did find one in germany , knob and gaitor £75.00 + postage ,

I am recovering from the shock

The Touareg was always manufactured and marketed as a luxury SUV. Sadly that means premium prices for many parts/spares but it’s always worth getting a dealer quote first to see what the OEM price is and you can then work from that.

If you favour originality, it’s definitely worth looking at breakers but as you have found, there are few manual Touaregs about and equally, there isn’t a large second hand pool to search.

Surely the starting point is picking up the phone, calling your local dealer and finding out how much a new knob will cost if it is still available.

Then you can make an informed decision on the next step instead of faffing around!

This option while not cheap doesn't sound overly expensive to me. As noted, its an expensive luxury car, parts prices will always be commensurate from a main dealer or worthy re-seller. You would surely pay at least that amount for any viable alternative solution.

I don't get it.

The first thing I do is call the dealer. Then I know exactly where I stand.

My dealer gives a discount for cars over 4 years old and they will post small parts FOC.

Over the years I've been surprised at how cheap some parts are (and it's a no-brainer to order it/them on the spot) and astonished at the price of others ("Thanks, but I'll get back to you on that!") but at least I always knew the starting point.

Hi Sarakina

The £75.00 +Postage was for used item , not sure of condition , , if in good condition , would be okay
