2004 – 2006 Volkswagen Touareg Drivetrain Binding/Tires Scrubbing During Low Speed Maneuvering ESP Light in Instrument Cluster ON or Flashing

Download During low speed turns/maneuvering, vehicle drivetrain feels as if it is binding or tires are scrubbing on pavement. Customer may also state that the ESP light in instrument cluster is ON or Flickering. Other customer described concerns may include, but are not limited to: • Tension in drivetrain • Vibration and load sensitive knocking from the drivetrain • Cracking noise upon acceleration from stop, while cornering or driving slowly • Shudder when cornering • Rubbing or slipping when cornering • Electronic faults in 22-Four wheel drive electronics: DTC’s 02033, 02039, 02042 or 02409 stored. The clutch disc of the differential has a remaining locking effect because of the differential control module software. This is perceived as tension in the drivetrain. Tip: The above symptoms can occur when driving with summer tires at temperatures below 7°C (45°F). In this temperature range the summer tires lose their elasticity. When fully turning the steering wheel the tire cannot correctly roll out and begins to bounce (slip – stick effect). This effect leads to the assumption of tension in the drivetrain, but the tension is in the tire wear pattern.
