hi everyone, i am new to this site, just thought i would share my recent problems with my shadow blue Touareg.
Basically i think i have a diesel leak, as all weekend i have had diesel dripping from the underneath of my car (and its only 4 months old!!!!)

In addition to this, my C.D player has stopped working, i think due to this weekends heatwave! anyone else had problems with the C.D player due to heat problems?!!!

Awaiting VW Manchester to ring me back to book the car in!!!!!!

diesel dripping ??

you didn't just fill it to the brim

with the heat the density of fuel will expand meaning more fuel in the tank could just be coming down the overfill pipe.

or you sure it's not the A/C dripping.

You can just hit me if you know this already.

Oh and welcome to the forum.

Thank you, its nice to be here!

errrmm, its not full anymore, tho i did think of that at first, also, its all over the underneath including the diff so it appears its not just coming from one place, although most of the drips are fromthe back right of the vehicle, near the tank!!!! A neighbour yesterday suggested the A/C until closer inspection, then he quickly told me it was diesel dripping and nothing to do with the A/C!

Anyway, VW have told me not to drive it, the VW recovery are going to be here in the next 30mins to take it in, and to give me a courtesy car!! good service so far.

I am sure it will turn out to be something simple and you will have the Treg back in no time.

i hope so, god i really do! will miss it, and i bet i will spend the next 2 days driving about in a Lupo or something! haha!

Do you know of anyone who has had problems with their C.D player (6 disc boot mounted) sticking in the heat? it just wont even let me eject the cartridge either! I know i had a similar problem with this in my previous car (Audi TT) which also had a rear loading 6 disc player!

Thanks

Is your CD player totaly dead not even a squeek from it.

It could be some thing simple like a fuse blown, I had that before on one of my cars.

You'll be proud on your self if you can fix it before the technician gets it.

Yes - my in car MP3 player stopped after a couple of hours on Saturday,
with "Over Temp" warning message!

The hard drive had obviously reached its max heating tolerance. Was OK again
a short time later....hot weather eh?

Cheers,

the saga continues!!! got the treg back now, after 3 days, all fine, except i asked them upon collection if they had fixed my jammed cd changer in the boot. They replied "you never asked us to", to which i responded "i did, the engineer was told about it".
"not on our job sheet" came the reply, to which i replied "oh yes it is, seeing as i was stood next to the engineer when he collected my car and wrote it on the job sheet"!!!!!!!
I was told to wait while they went out the back to check......5 minutes later......"oh yes, we are sorry, it is on the job sheet and it has been taken care of and its all fixed, but any other problems and please bring it back, your car is ready in bay 71 Mr Parry"!!!!
Great!!! or so i thought, tho i smelt a rat! First thing i did when i got to bay 71 was to lift the boot and look at the CD changer, hmmm, didnt look like it had been looked at, but giving them the benefit of the doubt (AGAIN!) i got in the treg and turned on the CD player only to find....yeah you guessed it, STILL JAMMED!!!!!
I waltzed back into the dealer fuming, and after much arguing with them, i now have to go back on Monday 4th July to have it fixed, and yet another courtesy car!!!!!!!!!!! word of warning, steer clear of VW Manchester, TRAFFORD! WATCH THIS SPACE!

Hi,probably got the same problem (55 reg V6 TDI)
only when topped up it spills some fuel on the driveway over the following night, which is quite irritating.First thought was the relief valve (lifted and stuck open),thus next fuelling was not up to the cap,but same result.
Is there any way (i.e. inspection hole from the boot) to have a look at the tank top itself?
Thanks for any reply.

Great to see a pic of Rich after such a long time, brings back happy memories. Shame this pic shows he needed to spread some jam on his shoes and invite his trousers down for tea. RIP my friend.

Hope there's a response to you soon Raff, but this is a very old post, so be warned there may be a delay.

And here is the answer, left hand side fuel pump locking ring nut came loose [accessible from top, but had to cut threw upholstery], all ok now
