Question about 2006 Volkswagen Touareg

1 Answer

Hi, i recently replaced both sides of the front suspension upper control arms for my 2006 VW Touareg 3.2 V6 which has air suspension. After collecting it from the repair shop and driving for about 10 mins, i get an audible warning sound and a message on screen telling me "RUNNING GEAR FAULT : WORKSHOP" and i have now been constantly getting the same message for the last week. Would you be able to roughly tell me what is the cause of this problem and how to get it fixed, thank you

I would return to the repair shop and get them to plug into the OBD and check for fault codes that correspond to suspension, chances are this could be related to previous repair. But may just need the fault codes deleting

    Thanks for the suggested solution but unfortunately it did not work when i went to the VW dealership to reset the OBD. They're telling me that there's a leak in the left side front air suspension which will definitely be costly to fix :(

The front suspension needs a lot of work. There is a lot of noises coming from the front end. My understanding is that this is common for a cobalt.


brakes and rotors will not cause noise unless they are badly worn and this will be evident on inspection
most noise will be from rubber suspension bushes and sway bar and shocky rubbers
I would suggest that you get quotes from suspension accredited shops and have each shop show you what is worn and what is ok
ON good roads ( hard surface) suspension units should last 60.000 miles before requiring repairs ( barring road damage)

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...


General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?
