    Symptoms: Squeaks from front passenger side suspension over bumps at slow speed. No squeaking over say 30 mph. Worse when cold greatly diminished/gone after long period of driving. In other words, drive for a long while and the same stretch of road in same direction results in virtually no...

    This is a new problem (at least to me). My kid's 01 B5 GLX 4motion wagon makes a squeaking noise when the brakes get warmed up. Driving short distances on relatively flat ground I never hear it. But if I take the car into town (3000' drop in elevation over 10 miles), by the bottom of the...

    I replaced my steering rack in January 2010 after having curbed the car. At the time, I was unaware of the mineral-based power steering fluid necessity, so I just put whatever generic fluid I had in there. Finally, after more than two years of driving it like that, it began to squeak at certain...

    When I bought my 2007 Passat it had a "squeak" in the engine when it was cold. That was over a year ago, I eventually replaced the serpentine belt and more recently the belt tensioner. IT still has that squeak, perhaps worse. What else could it be?

    Several weeks back, I started to hear mini clicking when turning. Now just this past weekend, I started to hear a squeaky, rubbing against eachother noise when turning the steering wheel. Are my tires gonna fall off? Anyone know of this issue? Do I just need to lubricate something? Help! Thanks.

    Hello, I have a 1999 Passat, It suddenly started making a squeaky and rattling noise on the front left side and if my hearing is any good it must come from the suspension area. I had a look under there but nothing seems broken or loose. I hear the noise more vibrant when I am inside driving...

    I have a love hate relationship with my 2003 Passat. Experiencing a high pitch squeaking noise on the left front side of the car. Brought it into the mechanic a couple of months ago. Cv boots were cracked apparently, then replaced. Squeaky noise returned a month later. Had brakes checked and...

    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...

    Hey guys, Don't really have a better way of explaining this, but my dashboard just mildly squeaks when I'm driving. Sometimes it doesn't do it, but when it does it drives me crazy. When I push the dash from behind the steering wheel towards the front of the car, it stops. As soon as I let go it...

    Well, basically my car squeals when i turn any direction, and slightly squeeks when i go on a bump. I checked my PS and it was low so i refilled it. when i refilled it i put too, too much. would this still be able to cause the squeal if i over fill. Is there a way to drain the PS? Also, Could...

    So the last few weeks my brake pedal makes a noise somewhat like a spring being compressed for lack of a better description. It's definitely the pedal and not the pads. I've noticed no loss of braking power and everything seems ok, but I was wondering if there is a simple explanation/cure for...

    For a while after I first start the car, a squeaky noise comes from the base of my steering wheel. After doing some reading, it sounds like my universal joint needs some silicone lube. Anyone know the easiest way to get access for silicone spray?
