    Thanks for your response!!

    The biggest concern for this issue is the transfer case,in most cases the transfer case fluid can be changed out and it will correct this condition.What basically happens is the components in the transfer case stick or bind when turning sharply at low speeds,if the fluid is replaced in most cases it corrects this condition,I have had to do this on several of these before.In some cases(very few) the transfer case has to be replaced to correct this condition.I would check with the shop that did the services and see if they changed out the transfer case fluid,if they didn't then i would have them do this and then test drive it in tight left hand circles,then right hand circles a few times then drive it about 6 miles at normal driving speeds and this should correct the problem.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

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.
