Touareg Oil Cooler

The Touareg 3.2 litre is fitted with a larger stock oil/water heat exchanger. This item is also fitted standard on Mk V Golf .:R32 and Series II Audi TT with 3.2 litre engine. It was also fitted to some higher output PD TDI's. The new 3.6 litre VR6 also has this cooler.

You will note the proximity of the coolant hoses to the airconditioning piping which runs past the end of the cooler. In the Mark IV installation, the coolant hoses need to be twisted down slightly when they are clamped to the cooler, so they clear the swedged fitting on the airconditioning pipe. On the Mark V and TT the aircondioner pipes exit the side of the compressor, whereas the Mark IV pipes exit at the rear, causing this slight clearance issue. The cooler has been mounted now for over two years and mounting the hoses in this manner has not caused any problems whatsoever.
