The Volkswagen Touareg SUV made its debut on September 26, 2002 in Paris. The car has received its name in honor of a tribe of nomads living in the Sahara.
The Touareg is the embodiment of Volkswagen’s fundamentally new concept. Its original appearance makes it easily recognizable in the general flow of cars. The Touareg’s interior is distinguished by the quality of expensive trim materials, elegance and functionality. The controls are convenient and accessible, and the instruments are easy to read.
The front seats are adjustable in six directions. At the customer’s request, the climate control system can have one of two versions: standard 2-zone or 4-zone Climatronic, creating an individual microclimate for individual passengers. Many different containers, which abound in the cabin, can accommodate everything you need on the road. The large center armrest has an illuminated stowage compartment. A bottle holder for up to 1 litre opens up when the armrest is tilted upwards.
The glove box is air-conditioned and the shelf on the overhead console is lockable.
The already huge luggage compartment, when the rear seats are folded down, turns the car into a real cargo van, capable of holding an incredible amount of cargo.
The car’s lighting equipment deserves special attention. There is never complete darkness in the interior: the interior rear-view mirror has light sources. All five seats are equipped with separate lights, and in parallel to the ceiling lighting, there is also illumination of the footwell, thresholds and door handles. The illuminated cosmetic mirrors, separate light sources in the engine compartment and luggage compartment as well as the included pocket lamp complete the picture. Excellent interior noise insulation is provided by a triple door sealing system, acoustic glass, high rigidity of sheet steel parts and the use of sandwich structures made of aluminum. The Keyless system allows the driver not only to disarm the car when approaching (and, accordingly, to re-arm it when leaving the car), but also to start the engine at the touch of a button. Volkswagen Touareg engine lineup includes a wide range of gasoline and diesel power units. The most common are the 3.2-liter, 3.6-liter and 4.2-liter gasoline V6 and V8, as well as the 2.5-liter and 3.0-liter in-line five-cylinder diesel engines and the 5.0-liter V10. Less common are the 5.0-liter V8 diesel and the 6.0-liter W twelve-cylinder gasoline engine. All engines can be equipped with both manual and six-speed automatic transmissions. The off-road qualities of the Volkswagen Touareg deserve special attention. The new electronic four-wheel drive system distributes traction between the front and rear axles in normal mode, and if one wheel slips, it brakes it and redistributes torque to the other wheels. In other cases, such as sudden acceleration, the system redistributes torque to the rear axle, making acceleration as efficient as possible. In all driving conditions, the Touareg delivers optimum handling and traction. The car’s all-terrain performance allows it to climb 100%, or 45 degrees – where others pass, the Touareg confidently drives uphill. As further evidence of its exceptional off-road qualities, we should note the hill-hold function, which makes it easier to start and stop on extreme climbs.
When driving with a roll of up to 35 degrees (a stationary vehicle can roll up to 45 degrees), optimal grip is ensured. And of particular practical value is the Touareg’s ability to turn and manoeuvre on almost any gradient.
The depth of a ford can be up to 580 mm, and the engine compartment and interior will remain dry even after the vehicle has passed the ford.
Among other things, the Touareg has a locking inter-axle differential and has a downshift transmission, which demonstrates its high off-road capabilities.
A high level of safety is ensured by active and passive safety systems: ESP stabilization system, tire pressure control system (RDK), independent suspension, 4XMOTION all-wheel drive, ABS, EVS (prevents short-term wheel blockage during engine braking) and HBA (brake assis). On request, the Touareg can be equipped with a comfort parking device. Ultrasonic sensors detect the presence of an obstacle at a distance of up to 120 centimeters in front and up to 150 centimeters behind the car. For 2006, the Volkswagen Touareg underwent minor exterior changes, while the basic design remains the same.
Replacing the dashboard and transferring the mileage. Restoring the Delta pin code
Thoughts of replacing the dashboard have been around for a while. Reason – inexplicable craving for beauty )) Event is not the cheapest, plus a number of questions arise: 1. What kind of dash needed (part number) 2. How to remove / place 3. How to adapt the 4. How to register your “native” mileage
After a quick look at the topic on Touareg Club www.touareg-club.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2930, I concluded – everything is possible. The first three questions are solved: 1. For a GP with a 2.5 or 3.0 diesel engine two gauges with article numbers will fit: 7L6920885R or 7L6920890C 2. It is easy and quick to remove. 3. If the dashboard was on the car with pneumatics and other options, which are not available on our car – disable all unused Vasya in the 19th block. (And the fourth is a little more complicated) 4. About the fourth question, I kind of made a mental note that the question is solvable and now the main thing is to find the dashboard. The dashboard with the part number 7L6920890C I found through Avito at one of the salvage yards. In fact, I already started to search the topic more thoroughly. I once again reread www.touareg-club.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2930 topic from cover to cover. Very helpful, because most of the questions disappeared in principle. Then I found this topic www.touareg-club.net/forum/showthread.php?t=80676, where the author described the process of mileage transfer by reading/writing EEPROM. Used this post (without pictures) as my main manual. Thanks to the author. At first glance it seems very confusing, but after reading some other material, I realized that in principle it is quite possible to do it yourself. Plenty of links to read: – The article “CH341A, USB-UART converter and I2C/SPI-programmer for $5” habrahabr.ru/post/262731/ – The post pvc1 “The secrets of the PQ35/46 dashboard EEPROM” about the golf 6 dash www.drive2.ru/l/6475842/ – Little more about drivers and software igorosa.com/ch341a-eeprom…iexpress-drajvera-i-soft/
Once you have mastered the theory, you can proceed to action: STEP 0: Order on ali all the necessary accessories. Programmer and a clip for the chip.
STEP1. Removing the old dashboard, check the new one. 1. Remove the dashboard cover under the visor. Tweaked it with a plastic spatula from one edge and pulled it down. 2. Unscrew the five screws and pull the visor a little up and over. 3. Unscrew two more bolts and pull the plastic bracket up 4. Push the top edge of the dashboard inward and then move it to the side to pull it out 5. Carefully unhook the two connectors. Clamp the catch and pull the latch.
STEP 2. Disassembly of the dashboard 1. Unscrew the 8 bolts on the back and unfasten the clasps. 2. Remove the front of the panel: pull up 3. Remove the arrows of all the instruments: clockwise to the extreme position and then twist with difficulty and pull upwards 4. 4. Separating the back part of the panel: pull the speaker connector, which is attached to the cover, by applying force. 5. For the monochrome dashboard: Lay the panel face down and unscrew one bolt. Separate the board from the dashboard. For the color instrument panel: Lay the panel face down and remove the three screws. Disconnect the four connectors. Separate the board from the dashboard.
1 – Connecting the clip on the monochrome dashboard 2 – Connecting the box to the PC 3 – Connectors on the color dashboard 4 – Connecting the clip on the color dashboard
STEP 3. Removing dumps, editing and filling (Steps are described in details in the link on the TC forum, here only general gist) 1. Connect to the ST24C16 chip on the old dashboard with a clip 2. Read dump and save it to file. 3. Connect to the chip on the new dashboard with the clip. 4. Read the dump and save it to a file 5. Open both saved files in the editor. Copy lines 38 through 48 from the old one and paste them into the new dashboard file instead. Save the file with another name 6. 6. Fill in new dump file to the chip
If you connected everything correctly, in the program we will see about this picture. If you copy and paste everything correctly, the result will be on the dashboard.
After connecting a new dashboard see the result – the mileage from the old dash is written. I had a bunch of errors on the dash immediately after connecting. When trying to connect Vasya got an error on the CAN bus. Carefully reconnected the green connector, which just works the bus, after which all the errors disappeared. Delta was safely locked and required a pin code, which I did not know. The manual said the pin code could be found in the radio card. Googled it and found out it was a plastic card, similar to a credit card, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Called the dealer, where I was offered to make an appointment at a convenient time and to prepare about two thousand rubles for the restoration. I decided to do a search and immediately came across this topic www.drive2.ru/l/475457691104313475/ Aha, there is the same EEPROM on the ST24C16, and the pin is stored in the open. Disassembling the Delta: 1. Unscrew one screw on the top cover on the back of the balalaika and remove the cover 2. Unfasten the front panel and disconnect the cable 3. Unscrew the two bolts under the front panel and the two bolts under the top cover that hold the drive
Connect the clip to the chip and read the dump. We can see our magic pin at the address 00000160 in the cells from 4 to 7.
