    Hi all, I have a 2003 VW Passat 1.8T AWM engine FWD Automatic, 138k miles. I was getting onto the highway behind a semi and had to floor it to merge, upon accelerating, the car clunked very hard once and both the CEL and ASR lights now remain lit indefinitely. The car also shifts QUITE rough...

    Hello passatworld, I recently replaced both front struts with used used ones from the junk yard (whole assembly). The passenger side is not making any noise. The driver's side is clunking even on non-bumpy road. You can hear the noise here as I was pressing down on it...

    My right front wheel has the last remaining clunk (fairly minor, but annoying) that happens when going over bumps, including rough surfaces like brick paved areas. The shock and upper control arms have all been replaced. I suspect the lower control arms, but haven't been able to identify any...

    Ever since I pulled out the dashboard to change the heater core, I get a sticky feeling/clunk in the steering wheel, as though it is catching on something. It mostly happens when the car has been sitting for at least an hour, and only happens when I first turn the wheel (mostly) or a little bit...

    Hi, I m new on here and have 2003 Passat 1.8T auto tran, 160K miles. Have had it for about 3 years. Did put in a right side cv axle about a year ago. Thought fairly simple and did myself but maybe below problem is related to that not sure. After very heavy acceleration up to 50, 60 MPH or...

Changed Transmission Oil within the last year with VW's Transmission Oil. Replaced all Motor mounts (but not transmission mounts) within the last 2 years. Clutch is...

    Hi, i have a 2001 b5.5 gls manual transmission. I noticed a weird clunking noise when i was reversing. It goes away when i go into gear and drive forward. Its like a loud thud noise. Im not sure if it the one of the teeth in the reverse gear is going bad. If it was the cv joints wouldnt it make...

    Electrical buzz and clunk like noise at start up and 5 climatronic codes Not sure if this is normal or not, but regardless if it is a cold start or it's already warmed up it makes an electrical buzz. But the clunk from the front. Some guy that heard it randomly said it may be a pulley. Should...

    2004 GLX wagon V6 2.8L 5 speed auto. Recently had front control arms replaced, and previous annoying but not majorly concerning front end noises went away. After a couple of years of what I thought were false alarms of bad O2 sensors and ultimately some misfires, I ended up replacing the...

    I've got a 2000 1.8T, and she drives well. The problem is twofold: When I put the car in drive, sometimes the transmission will enter gear violently by shaking the car and giving off a big clunk or thud noise. In the same vein, when the car is downshifting (most notably from 3rd to 2nd gear) it...

    Hi all, I have a 06 passat 2.0T and had a issue with the gear box recently. The yard is full of stones and uneven. Sometimes if I started the engine and shifted the gear to R, the car did not response for two seconds and then made a sudden and loud clunk sound before moving back. I am wondering...

    So I have a clunk in my front end. I've searched, and all threads point to control arms, tie rods, etc. The problem is, the clunk happens on the suspension rebound? To explain this better, say there is a sharp dip in the road, much like the end of a driveway with that beveled concrete curb...

    Hi everyone! I'm new and have been lurking around the forums reading about this and related issues. To precisely describe my issue, since there could be a number of causes: Symptoms - Clunking, almost like metal-on-metal, particularly over bumps - Clicking, particularly while turning at higher...

    1999 AEB 1.8T auto. I have recently had the trans pulled and installed for seals. Only driven 200 miles. All of a sudden when I now put it in reverse it clunks really loud. does not do this in D . Not sure what is causing but suspect it is associated with the mount. Noise is in...

    Car is a 2000 Passat 1.8t ATW. Ok, so I've done some basic maintenance on the car over the past two months with the much needed help of Passat World. Thought I had everything good to go. Replaced the front control arms and complete tie rod assemblies. Just finished the PCV system and after much...

    Greetings and Salutations! Have had the wagon just over a year with 94K miles. Great shape overall and besides constantly chasing the CEL (EVAP, Cats, etc) codes and eliminating, I have one nuisance and one worrysome issues. I don't think they are related, but one never knows. I have...

    Over the last 2 weeks Ive begun to here what sounds like a metal on metal clunk from my suspension. I even think I can feel it. It only happens when I'm pressing the gas down or stopping and it is usually just one clunk but recently the clunk has gotten worse up front where it may clunk 2 or 3...

    For over a year now, I've had a strange clunk. I'll do my best to describe it... This is a 2001 B5 30V 4M TIP wagon. It seems to be torque-induced. If I gas it off the line, about halfway through 1st is where I hear it. The clunk actually sounds like a series of clunks, and (if I had to...
