2004 Volkswagen Touareg Owner Comments

problem #1

Touareg AWD 3.2L V6

Hello, at first the right rear passenger door would not open from the inside, had to bump the door from the outside to open ( and yes the doors were unlocked). A few weeks later the same problem with the left rear door. A week later the exterior door handle on the left rear would stay pulled open as if it was being held open. I would have to push the door handle back in manually. Several weeks later the driver door would not open when you would press the unlock button at first. I would have to bump the door from the inside and then it will open. A few weeks later I took it in to the dealership to have them checked out $99.00 for diagnostic. Quote for the repairs were over $1700.00 including labor.

Checked online for the parts needed to repair the latches and handles myself. parts were not expensive for driver door so I bought parts and repaired myself. Parts for driver side door were under $75.00 and 4 hours of labor.

To be continued.....

Update from Dec 20, 2014: So I replaced the driver door parts except the release line and it worked for about a week and back to the same problem but now I have to open the window and from the inside of the Treg tug on the door hard and then it will open. If I ever have an accident or emergency I'm SOL.
