    Hello, I want to ask for your advise. Last year July 2016 I bought a brand new Passat SE 1.8 in Virginia, US. It has automatic transmission. Week after I started driving it I noticed clinking noise when I re-applied gas pedal. I went back to VW dealership, brand new car, under manufacturer...

    Stupid is as stupid does. I hit a 12" puddle of water at 50mph. Two nights later again, normally one learns. Anyway, I now have this lovely clunk at low speeds either braking or accelerating. Took a look today and have found a few issues. Right CV boot has torn right through, left started to...

    I'm getting a clunking sound from my Passat when: 1) I make a hard turn 2) go over a bump with just my left wheel 3) Come to a hard stop I thought it might be the control arm, because I had to have one replaced a while ago. I took it to a mechanic to get it diagnosed, but the only thing he...

    When the car is on/turned to on with the engine off it clicks been j remove my key there is a long whining noise. The whining noise is at the end of the video. So listen closely. Use headphones if you must. And now just today it started clunking and then bucking when I put it into any drive gear.

    So for awhile (probably 2 months or so) my car has been making an odd clunking noise on the driver side. It only really happens at low speed. I assumed it was a bad strut mount (since I didn't replace them when I put my Koni's in). Well this weekend I tore everything out and noticed that the...

    Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me with the strangest issue I've ever had with a vehicle. We bought a 2002 Passat 2.8L V6 5-speed Automatic in December 2014. The car's most recent issue is a clunking noise on the driver's side that reverberates into the steering wheel (you can...

    So today I'm driving my wife's Wagon, '03 V6 - 74k miles - auto. When I accelerate I hear a clunking noise like if something was hitting the engine. I looked at the snub mount and it needs to be replaced. The 2 engine mounts are fine. I'm not sure where the transmission mounts are located...

    I have been trying to figure out why my car is clunking after letting off the gas? Replaced cv joint/axle and one worn out transmission mount. Also I just purchased and installed new 16" wheels.

    Hi everyone. I have a strange noise I need help diagnosing. It is a fast thumping/clicking sound (once per revolution) that sounds like it's coming from my front passenger side wheel. It happens only at highway speeds, when I'm turning slightly left, OR when a gust of wind passes :confused...

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...

    2001 1.8t. I get this clunking sound at slow speed and also when braking. Its a real defined 'clunk', i have traced it to an area under the drivers seat area (uk). I am thinking it could be the subframe bolts, i have read some threads mentioning these bolts, and that replacing the two black...

    Today a new problem arose. When the car is rocked, ie when i brake at slow speed, - a distinct clunk/knock is heard from (i think) the front drivers (uk) side. This has only just started today and is very noticeable. The car is a 2001 1.8t. 110,000miles. Ive just freewheeled down a hill here...

    Hello all, I just joined yesterday because it seems to be a great passat forum! My girlfriend just purchased a 1999 passat GLS, 2.8L V6, tiptronic; and it has a few problems, to say the least :D. #1) Biggest problem in my opinion is that there is no record of the timing belt ever being...

    I put my Winter wheels on over the weekend and ever since I've been getting a weird clunking coming from the front wheels, kinda like something is hitting something else (real technical description, I know). It stops under braking or acceleration...any ideas?

    having read thru dozens of threads here, I took apart the front shock assembly thinking I was going to find a washer missing from the last time I had the front end apart... nope, wasn't the problem. the problem is the shock is shot! the piston doesn't rebound at all. dammitalltohell! :banghead:

    EDIT: Passenger FRONT**** wheel... typo I'm getting a clunking noise on the passenger front wheel... I hear it almost every time I go over a bump while taking a left hand turn. Sometimes even when I shift from 1st to 2nd while taking a left turn. I cant replicate it when taking a right hand...
