I'm a technician at a local dealer here in Texas, and we currently have a 2006 Touareg with 56,xxx miles on it in the shop with the oil pump bolt being the suspected part of failure. Vehicle came in with cam range/performance faults. Technician working on the vehicle returns from school this week and should finish inspecting for damage.
On another note though, I'm curious to know if those getting quotes to fix this issue out of warranty, is it being done in, or out of the vehicle (for Passat owners)? I can't forsee it taking 14 hours to R&I the transmission and subframe while keeping the engine suspended in the bay while this is being performed.
