Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Yes, it can be balanced at a shop that does that kind of work. It normally is about 1/3 of the price of replacement however you are down and out a while longer since yours is removed and sent off instead of removed and just replaced.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Balancing will 100% resolve vibration issue ?
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 5 months ago

That would be correct.

Hi,
I did balance last week, unfortunately issue doesn't resolve, still have vibration at 50km speed.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I may need to replace with new part.
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 4 months ago

That means the vibration is not from this shaft, it is something else which is spinning. LIke a wheel or tire, or axle shaft. How did they confirm the propr shaft was to blame in the first place?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
They did check all other things, rear bushes are good, new tyre's, wheel alignment done. Engine and transmission mount s replaced.
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 4 months ago

Have they used a vibration analyzer machine or are they just doing this diag by site and process of elimination?

Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No machine used
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 4 months ago

That would be the next best step, because at this point they are saying there is nothing else to blame and it is still occurring.

This mechanic used to work in vw service and he said it's common problem for touareg.
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 4 months ago

Replace the part again is the only thing left I have to say or offer.
