Volkswagen Touareg 2004-06
Removal & Installation
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
Remove the air intake hose between the air cleaner(s) and throttle body.
Label and disconnect the electrical and vacuum connections on the throttle body.
Remove the bolts securing the throttle body to the intake manifold, then carefully remove it. You may need to tap it lightly with a rubber mallet to break the seal.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Always use a new seal. Tighten the mounting bolts to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
