VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG, Model years 2003-2004
On all affected Touareg vehicles of the chassis number range a moveable part of the foot-operated parking brake can chafe on the main wiring loom. On some vehicles the left seat console may not withstand a severe rear collision because of faulty spot welding. On some vehicles with V6 petrol engine an additional earth connection must be fitted to the tank filler neck and sufficient clearance between a coolant pipe and a coolant hose must be created. On all vehicles with steel wheels (including winter tyres) the brake discs may be damaged.
