  4. Squeaking front end

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 03 Passat GLX V6 started making an awful squeaking sound when turning the steering wheel left or right. I am thinking that this is the control arm bushings. I have a bad ball joint on my UCA so I plan to replace them all in the next week or so. If anyone has experienced noises when turning...
  5. squeaking coming from one of wheels

    B5 Garage
    We have a 2002 V6 4Motion. Brakes were done about 6 months ago. This past week, I noticed that when the car is just starting to move, there is a squeaking sound that is very loud coming from what I think is one of the wheels. It gets faster as the car moves faster, and once the speed is above...

  8. Squeaking noise. Drives me mad!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My car has developed a very strange high pitched squeaking noise, and i have trouble identifying where it is coming from. It seems like it originates somewhere behind the drivers seat, every time i go over a bump. Drives me crazy! :crazy: Does anyone have a similar problem? What can that be?
  9. squeaking suspension

    B5 Garage
    About a year ago, before i did any suspension work the front right side squeaked pretty bad. I replaced the intire front suspension. The struts and springs are ebach. They didn't come with mounts, so i used the old ones. The squeak was gone for a day or two, then slowly came back. It squeaks...
  10. Strange Squeaking Noise From Engine Bay (video)

    B5 Garage
    It's been a couple months from my timing belt replacement. Haven't had any issues. *knock on wood* I was driving down the road the other day and started hearing a weird squeak sound that gets faster as the RPMs increase. It starts to get constant at around 2K RPM although it is intermittent at...
  11. Squeeling / Squeaking Diagnosis Please

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    When I have the blower fan on and apply the brakes to slow down, just before coming to a complete stop I hear an annoying squeaking/squeeling coming from the area under the passenger side dashboard near the glove box. As soon as I come to a complete stop, the noise stops. It definately is tied...
  12. Squeaking sound from passenger's seat and vibraryion problem

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    HI, I have 06 passat 2.0T. First, I'm having trouble with squeaking sounds from the passenger's seat area. Problem is I have no idea where exactly it's comming from, but it really annoys me. I was about to bring it to the dealership, but do they even care or can they fix this issue? It's still...
  13. Constant front right suspension squeaking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is that my control arms as well? It is a fairly loud squeaky that only happens once in a while. So far it is only toward the end of long trips, and seems to be between 40-50mph mainly. Goes away for a little while if I hit the brakes but then comes back. I have new front rotors to be installed...
  14. Squeaking problem, wasn't answered in squeaky wheel thread

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have this constant squeaking that is not all the time but very often. It happens when just driving straight and when I turn the wheel or tap the brake it stops (until I release the brake). It comes back when I turn the wheel driving a curve. I'm guessing it's brake related but I'm not too...
  15. Squeaking on drivers side A-pillar

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm having an annoying intermittent squeak that seems to be behind the driver's side seatbelt adjustment tab. When I press hard against the area it seems to go away or is diminished. It's an '07, still under warranty. Anyone have the same prob and how did you fix it?
  16. Front End Squeaking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, after a week of driving around with my front end squeaking, I determined that it may be a problem. I've read a lot about the '99 Passat control arms and I'm thinking that it must be that. I know it was eventually a recall in 2004, but can I still have the parts replaced for free? If not...
  17. Weird and highly annoying squeaking

    B5 Garage
    So yesterday out of no where I got this weird, high pitched squeaking every time I went over a road bump. I thought it was something rubbing against something in the back seat or in the cargo area... bubkiss. When I opened the hatch, it made a long squeak like I've never heard before (it always...
  18. Squeaking noise coming from the back

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I first noticed this when I was going through a drive through and whenever the car came to a full stop it would release a squeak. This came from from the rear suspension, my car is a fwd and it has the weird independent suspension in the back, has anyone ever had a squeaking noise and fixed one...

    03 W8 4motion Ok, so when I turn the steering wheel to the left or to the right at a stand still I hear a squeaking noise, like some on is rubbing 2 pieces of styrofoam together. Please note, I haven't looked at ANYTHING on the front suspension yet. Just collecting ideas as to what could be...
