• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

SOLD: 2006 V10 Touareg 185k - San Diego, CA - $1500

Bought a project V10 Touareg 2 months ago, 185k miles, right tandem pump was leaking. I decided to do the tandem pump change with the engine in place (it's possible). I started the engine with almost everything back in place (just the air intakes off), and I must have ripped some sort of coolant line in the back of the engine while changing out tandem pump. At this point, it's best that whoever buys this should take out the engine out and replace all the coolant lines. I do not have the time or space to do engine drop. I was going to have the space in 6 months or so (and was going to take out engine to rebuild turbos), but 6 months is not now and need to get rid of it at this point.

The interior is in great shape. Brown leather, no tears at all. As you can see this comes with roof racks and have the keys for them. Headliner is in great shape, buttons aren't faded like lots of other Touaregs this generation are. I also swapped out both O2 sensors when doing tandem pump. Air suspension works perfectly. The paint is still in great shape too, it's dirty in this picture but I did wash it before taking it apart and paint was in great shape. Items that I noticed with the few months I had it that should be addressed:
  • both engine mounts should be changed
  • A/C was not holding refrigerant. It might just be the top low pressure inlet that's leaking (I could hear a hissing, but couldn't pinpoint where), but that will have to be addressed (or not, if you don't want/need A/C)
  • right headlight is out
  • rear struts for hatch are worn
  • handles for rear seats are broken and need replacing

Seems like a lot, but this can all be taken care of by the right person. I never inspected the cams, but I don't hear the notorious ticking/banging that you hear when cams go bad. Right turbo was replaced at 50k, but left one might be original. When you have engine out I recommend you have these rebuilt. There is a place here in SoCal that quoted me $450 per turbo to have these rebuilt. Ask any more questions you want, I'll do my best to answer them, thanks.
