  • Thank you for your interest in one of our products. Unfortunately I am unable to confirm if this item will do the job it is intended for as my technical knowledge is limited all the information I have is detailed on the listing. Apologies and kind regards, Donna.

  • Your Touareg has two drain plugs. The other is higher up and about 10 inches further toward the back of the car. Gotta drain both for a full drain.

    • Yup full fill should be 9 quarts not 8 as in his video. So he had about 1 quart of old oil left in the system.

  • Let me tell you, this has been best-detailed video..i've owned my VW Touareg since 2010 and I've always taken it to the mechanic for an oil change because I lived in the city for many years. I recently bought a house and have my own garage and I always said that I would work on my car once I have space. I never change an oil or anything engine related but watching these videos has inspired me and saved me a ton of money on easy stuff. I recently took on changing both fuel pumps, filter, and regulator on my Touareg 2 weeks ago...Again, I'm not a mechanic and never changed the oil on any of my cars but I found myself in a bind. With a recently purchased home and my car stalling to the point wouldn't turn on, I was faced with two options, spend towing the car to a dealer and getting charged at least $1600 on the car that I didn't have money to fork over or let it sit and wait till have a little more money to purchase a nice hoompty car that will give me to point A and B. Well the pandemic hit and I was forced to work from home as we all did and that just gave me time and the idea to see if I can tackle the job myself. For 3 months that car on my driveway and I was in no rush. I did some heavy research watched a number of youtube videos scoured the forums to help determine if it was indeed my pump. After describing the issue everyone who I spoke to seemed to think the issue was one of my pumps but that's where I fell short..I took a chance and used the money that I had saved and purchased the parts related to the pump since I didn't know which one was bad, I figured since I'm already working on the pumps, it's only logical replacing both so purchased both pumps, filter regulator and o rings at least I know all fuel related parts were replaced.. Finally, the day came and the feeling was like an exam, my neighbor watching, my wife didn't think it would work I had some doubts but was hopeful...took me 3 hours but the moment of truth came, I crank it didn't turn on but it felt like it wanted to turn on..turned the key again and it turned on! Everyone was shocked including myself..all that research paid I'm ready to do my oil and this video is perfect, I can add this to my list of things I fixed on my car. Thank You again for posting this video. doing this job this weekend.

    • That’s great to hear! Working on cars isn’t too bad, take your time and you’ll be fine. It’s only nuts and bolts!

  • The reason why not much oil came out is because you opened only 1 drain plug. There are actually 2 drain plugs. They are next to each other. Check out the first page of this thread for a location of the second. Be sure to browse the site too. It is a Gold for any Touareg owner.

    • Sounds like a transmission issue, check your transmission fluid first and go from there

  • How do you like the Milwaukee stubby impact?

    • For situations like this, it’s a life saver. I never knew I needed one until I started using one. It’s light, strong, and compact. Any job that requires taking off a million bolts I’d highly recommend. I have a link in the description for anyone who’s interested, on the specific model im usung.
