SOURCE: VW touareg steering judder low speed left/right turn

Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.

Same as any other vehicle.

1. Raise and support vehicle
2. Remove tire/wheel
3. Loosen/remove the two caliper bolts
4. Slide caliper off the rotor.
5. Use a C-Clamp to depress the caliper piston
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Install new pads on caliper
8. Install caliper/tighten caliper bolts
9. Install tire/wheel
10.Lower vehicle
11 Move to next wheel/repeat

Some people take a turkey baster and remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder prior to depressing the caliper piston because it can over flow. If you choose to do that just add the fluid back when finished so it is at its proper level.

SOURCE: on my 2006 V6 Touareg

It sounds to me that you have either an ABS problem or a traction control problem if equipped. If it is a problem with the traction control there is usually a switch to shut it off, if equipped. If you have a bad front wheel speed sensor then at the last 3 feet of stopping the ABS will cycle causing the problem you described. Power loss on the right side could only be a traction control issue but I have never had a client come to my with that issue before. Try having the cars ECM scanned for ABS codes and have the ABS light checked to see if it is functional. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com

I have a 2002 honda passport. In a 4 w drive mode it struggles to turn in a full wheel turn i feel like some thing is trying to stop. No issue while driving straight or while driving in a 2w mode


no worries all four wheel vehicles do same thing, its because all wheels are turning at same speed, just go slow when turning or switch to 2 wheel when turning at a slow speed

Esp off does touran grip better in snow. My touran poor on hills


Electronic Stability Control,works opposite to abs,in that,it stops the wheels from spinning on loose ground/snow by applying the brake to the wheel that is spinning.TURN IT OFF.you WANT the wheel to grip not brake.and as far as being poor on hills, the toureg (amongst loads of other makes of 4x4s),is NOT designed for snow/off road,the four wheel drive just ENHANCES grip/handling on tarmac.(try a Subaru on a track/off road rally).

How do you use the the four wheel drive gear on a 1998 prado


prado has a fulltime 4wd. you can use the 4wd in any speed but preferrably stop before the shifting to the 4wd mode. if you are using an automatic transmission, put it to neutral before changing the 4wd mode. each mode depends on the surface you are travelling. on pavement the 4 low setting is an advantage for drivers who need to tow and maneuver a heavy trailer. select 4WD high on snow and for easy to moderate off-road (dirt roads, easy trails).

On a 1999 pathfinder, what 4 wheel gear do I use in the snow


Unless your climbing big hills, I'd leave it in 4 high, for normal roads. If you happen to get stuck, better to shift to low, to get out, then when back on highway, or main roads use high. Remember, 4 wheel drive might get you out of the snow or whatever better, but it will slide sideways, and stop the same as 2 wheel drive, so don't think you can go faster than those ahead of you with 2 wheel drive, if roads are bad. Sorry, I know, you know better, but I see more 4 wheel drives in the ditches around here in Canada, than 2 wheel drives, in fact I've seen 2 beside each other in same ditch, as I slowed down for ice patch, and drove past them. Yes I did check to make sure they were o.k. though.

4 wheel drive


use part time on wet or slippery road surfaces. Use full time in snow.
Though some will shift into different modes at a standstill, I generally do so when rolling at 5-20mph...it makes engagement easier on the transfer case. when driving on dry road surfaces, why use 4x4? it uses more fuel and really has little benefit. differences in front/rear wheel speed must be absorbed by transfer case alone, while on slippery surfaces, a bit of tire slippage reduces stress on unit.
