    Two things :???: • I am getting a sound of growling from the air filter enclosure when first started and then after 1 minute or so and then the noise fades to a rough whirling sound before going away completely. It might come on for a few seconds and go off again. It only happens when the...

    So after I did the photos for the ICM trouble shooting, I figured while I had the hood open I would service the K&N Air Filter and change out the plugs. Got everything back together and started her up and... a new noise. Sounds like bearing rattle. I finally track it down to this item on the...

    I've just bought a brand new Passat 1.8T (1 week old) and noticed that each morning when I start-up the car its quite noisy and the revs is at around 1300 and after 2 mins or so the noise and rev is back to normal. Subsequent startups are ok. My previous Passat 1.8T (1998 model) do not behave...

    I recently had my brakes done and went with Mintex Red Box pads. I observed the break-in period, did a pattern of 5 hard slow-downs, and otherwise braked very gently which is how I usually brake anyway. The brakes now have a bout 300 miles on them and are squealing VERY LOUDLY! I have tried...

    since putting on my coilovers my tires have become very loud and sound like they are out off balance. Took it to VW here in Germany and dealer said it is just the tread that they are not out of balance. Can this be so? They are rain tires, 205 55 16. Any info would be great.

    I've been getting a popping noise (the gasket against the opening in the roof) from the sunroof directly over the driver's head. If I open the sunshade and push up on the glass, I can duplicate it at will. Any adjustment I can make or any trick to solving it? I hate going to the dealer and...

    Hello y'all. I have been reading this board for a long time, and I have to say that you guys kick a**! :bow: I have a 2002 1.8T with a tip Ink Blue (I love the color). I have had a problem with a noisy relay switch almost since day one when I bought the car back in June '02. It has been...

    How noisy should the fuel pump be? I hear a highpitched whirr-whirr-whirr sound from the pump all the time. It's loud enough to be heard 15-20 feet outside, but not at all on the inside. I thought it might be normal, but I listened to my friends A4 and it was barely audible. The tank was 3/4...

    I've had my RE950s for a week now and I'm disapointed at the noise level. Between 40 and 70 they sound like a truck snow tire to me. Not what I was expecting. I see recommendations for so many different tires on the posts, I'm totally confused. I'm not a really aggressive driver and would...
