    Hi everyone...I recently purchased a 2010 Passat and love the car except for all the rattles! I was wondering if any of these were common and if someone found an easy fix. I have about three that are driving me crazy: 1. When I accelerate and reach about 2300 RPMs, there is a vibration that...

    an unusual amount of squeaks rattles and bumps coming after I installed the coilovers. Bumps and rattles are coming from the front..a few squeaks from the front and back. I was told, simply from my description, that it could be bushings. Any other ideas?

    Hello, I have a 98 1.8t passat 5spd. It has 160k miles on it. But to the point it has several things going on with it it. So i'll put them into a list. 1. Car seems really sluggish when starting off. 2. I can't hear my turbo spinning up. 3. I hear a rattle noise when the car begins to idle and...

    I just bought two 12 inch Hifonics 3200 watts each 1600 rms and that baby hits hard but I bought new screws for my plate to tighten it up but still rattles. I was going to by the dynamic crap and put it in my trunk but any other suggestions?

    02 1.8t tip... What at idle or at a complete stop, with the gear in drive, the engine is rattling, not smooth. But when I put it into neutral, still stopped at the traffic light, the engine immediately gets smooth and quiet, no more rattle. Is it the valve timing? Is it the oil? Anyone...

    :rolleyes: I have a '99 V6 GLS. It's been a good car and one I will probably keep for awhile. Unfortunately, I'm starting to get rattles from inside the car; typically when hitting a bump or pothole. The glove box seems to be a primary source of these noises. I have emptied the glove box...

    I know other people have this problem. Put your window down, hit some bumps, do some cornering, and you'll hear the window thunking around inside of the door. Anyone have a solution to this minorly irritating problem? Gracias.

    does anyone have rattles in the rear passanger doors? It just seems to have come from no where. They are on both sides of the rear cabin, but two different pitches. It is driving me nuts. I can not seem to find where the noise is coming from. Has anyone else had these noises? Need help, or...

    Fixed my dash rattles. For others with the same problem, I used the dark grey/black 5/8" foam backer rod (got it at home depot) mentioned in another post. You just push it down between the dash and windshield. I cut the ends at an angle to but up to the A pillar. It matches up perfectly. If you...

    I just don't know what to do. I love my car. Love it. Bought it new Mar. 14, 99. Bare bones GLS 5-speed w/ lux package. Now, it's got a 110,000 miles on it. Here's my dilemma. On bumpy new england roads it rattles and squeeks like a motherf'er. Also, it appears that something in the left...

    I just got the brullen cat-back installed and for the most part I love it. However, sometimes either when I'm shifting from second to third, or when I let the rpm's drop slowly from 2700 to 2200, it makes an annoying and significant rattle. Of course the guy that installed it says that it...

    After 91000 miles, and being lowered for over 80000 of those, My sunroof started rattling about 2-3 weeks ago. I'm actually surprised it took this long since my ride is a lot more firm than a stock Passat's. Figured my sunroof would have the $#!t shook out of it sooner than that. :weirdo: :-P...
