    Whenever I turned my steering wheel when I wasnt moving the car I heard a scraping noise as if something wasnt properly lubricated, then I took the car to the dealer and they said nothing was wrong and to not mind the noise..., and a week or two later the noise is getting more and more...

    My '99 Passat GLX lives in Phoenix, Arizona. This year we may break the record of the most 110F plus days. July and August and the 1-hour slow-go commute has taken a toll on the A/C compressor. The Passat has V6 and climatronic. I open the hood to listen for noises. With A/C off, the engine...

    For those of you who are complaining about a noise coming from your front suspension at low speed be sure it is not your brake caliper and pads, more specifically check to make sure you haven't lost the caliper retaining spring that keeps the pads in position and tensioned. I thought I had a...

    Picked up some Toyo Proxes 4 used on this forum after hearing nothing but good things about them. Problem is that I am hearing nothing but noise from them now they are on my car. These tires RUMBLE. They are loud, and produce a whirring, wheel speed sensitive rumble that is especially loud...

    Some of you may remember that I did my own suspension swap (long story, don't want to get into it) Anyway after I did it in spring I've had a squeeky ,banging noise from the front end. Even with just little bumps the front squeeked. Well, good news, after finally having time to work on the car...

    They just picked up my Alpha Passat. I think they need to make it a week long test drive instead of just 24 hours! I got stuck with an ugly silver one. Same thing when I did the 24 hour Phaeton test drive. First complaint was the engine noise. It was much louder than my '98 1.8T. What's...

    It is not my mouth... it is a squeak when I hit bumps. It doesn't squeak when I first get in but after about 10 miles or so it will start every time I hit a bump. If I can just find the place it is coming from I would oil it but I can't so I am almost to the point I am going to coat the...

    Any thoughts on front suspension noise - sounds like the bushings squawking. DOes not happen in cold weather, only when it get hot. Happens when the front either goes over a bump or the wheel turns. Nothing is loose (can't get any rattle out of anything), can't get it to do it when the wheels...

    Hi folks, I just bought a 1998 1.8 20vt yesterday (130K miles) It makes a fair old racket - sounds like noisy tappets Does this sounds likely - if so any clues on curing the noise? or what else might it be? Sounds like a clattery old diesel :)

    i put some O-Z 17's on my car with Michelin pilot sports(225/45zr17), and these things are damn noisy!! the wheels and tires were used, so i think maybe there are a few broken belts in the tires(????) i'd hate to pay the money to replace tires that are just noisy. as long as these are safe, i'll...

    I now drive a 1988 GMC pick-up and am selling my Passat. I have been driving the truck and the Passat is sitting until I sell. Well I drove it for the first time in a while today. It felt good, but it still clanks more than the GMC in the front end despite the fact that I have replaced tie rod...

    is there a grease point in there? Would I be waisting my time to pull the door panel off to try to add some grease? I looked at the pictures for the alientech window control install to get an idea of how to take off the panel. When it's off, it doesn't look like there's much you can do about...

    Today, my car started making a weird metal clunk kind of sound from the front driver side wheel when going over larger bumps. So I jacked up the front end and found a red spacers lodged in between the spring and the shock. The driver side one was broken (1st picture). There is also another set...
