    Hi All Hope someone can help. I was fitting a new brake switch and pulled the brake pedal up with my toe. Maybe a little too hard. Problem is pedal is now squeaky and is loose and also this item fell off from somewhere. Please see pic. Hope someone can help. Thanks

    Hit a recent cold snap here and I found out that my 2.8 sings a squeeky tune with the fan on. Any ideas how to get at it with some lube?

    Lately everytime I open the driver's door, I can hear a squeeky noise came from the hinges, and I sprayed a WD40, but still not fixing the problem. Anyone knows where to lubricate them and what to use since the WD40 did not work? TIA

    Has anyone experienced a squeeking sound while turning coming from the stearing column? It sounds as if there are some bad bearings inside..possibly power steering, but I only hear it from inside the car..... The car only has 25k on it.

    Hey Everyone, I have a '99 1.8T with 63,000 miles and the stock suspension has starting squeeking/creaking in the front (and it is embarassing). I haven't noticed the ride getting any more harsh. Do I have to replace my suspension, or does something just need lubrication or something...

    So I got new rotors and pads on my 01.5 V6 about two weeks ago and have had very mixed results. I was getting significant vibration when braking with my original setup and the rear pads were shot after only 33,000 miles. The vibration was from the front and the pads in the back were shot, so I...

    Took my 2000 B5 V6 to the dealer 2 weeks ago for the 30,000 mile check up and a brake check. Since then, every now and then I can hear a high-pitched squeeky noise (I don't know how else to describe it) when I'm driving. It is most apparent and is present for most of the time when I'm on the...

    My 2001 GLS front seats started to develop a minor noise at about 40k. It sounds sort of like they have some play on the tracks. You can hear it when you accelerate, brake, or turn. You can also feel them shift a tinsey bit. SO, I would like to know how many other people have this issue with...
