The interior, though, was almost identical to the Golf, featuring very minor styling changes like its predecessor. I can't seem to figure out what it is. No more squeaking when driving over speed bumps. Noise still persistent from the previous repair. Does anyone have an answer. Thoughts on what I might be hearing? Such a shame as the new mounts were only on for 3months. Replaced Coil springs, shocks and shock mounts.
It started about 500 miles ago, and the Coilovers have been on for about 6000 miles, the car just hit 7000 miles. Previously I drove a mk4 and I know the sound of sway bar on axle and this is not the sound. Volkswagen Jetta , , , , , and all made the Golf 4. I could not find any evidence of the springs binding, but did notice that there was some separation of rubber around the plastic center of the rubber mount beneath the spring. I'v mistaken the black dust cover where the pin comes out of the shock for a circlip cover. Dude it depends on how long you have been driving on the duff bushes, if it has been a while then your shocks will have taken a beating too so they may need replacing.
Since buying this new car, I haven't driven the Pontiac for 3 weeks. The bend in the axle is front-to-back. They are 12+ years old and kinda dried out and now cracked from thousands of bottoming out cycles. Also, that cup is tight on the passenger side, whereas it will spin fairly freely on the drivers side. I'm thinking of buying the Sensen 3212-0147 shocks. So I had to get new ones.
An alignment was attempted with in specs but, off center not resolved. I've checked the tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings, etc. I've tried searching for a diagnosis with no luck. This seems my only option. And it is, with as much certainty as i can have, coming from the front passenger side of the car.
The Mk4 Jetta was similarly reintroduced in Canada for the 2007 model year as the City Jetta. The vehicle was not repaired. Even where you sit can make you think the noise is front vs. Instead, they face-lifted the front bumper, fenders, grille, and hood to resemble Mk4 Golf styling but to fit a Mk3 chassis. Also, when I have the hood open and push up and down on the front of the car, I can see the cup where the top strut nut goes into will go up and down separate and apart from the body. Banging noise from rear wheel when going over bumps.
Vehicle towed to dealership for ignition replacement. They examined the suspension took the rear shock absorber apart, printed the different parts of the rear shock absorber from their computer and compared it to my unit. Your title on this post stated,? This part slides over, like a little washer cover, over the little circlip near the top of the shock to prevent the circlip from opening. Difficult to drive staright without swerving. I was afraid the noise was preignition because I was getting codes for knock sensor out of range, so I replaced the knock sensors multiple times each, coil pack, wires, new ngk bkr5e plugs gapped correctly, fuel filter and pump. Maybe the garage that did the job before me, did the same as me, tightened them with the axle in the air.
My mechanic flushed the power steering fluid and replaced with new fluid. The interior lighting in the cabin was switched to the blue and red hue found in the Mk4 and some of the more familiar Mk3 parts were chromed such as the inner door handles, emergency brake button, door strikers, front seat belt anchors, key lock cylinders, and shifter button in automatic transmission equipped cars. Dealer on March 24 th 2014. Car has a clean title, bought it from a dealer used with 9k miles on it. Could this be a potential cause? Something else to consider atleast if the dampers arent at fault. Steering doesn't really seem to have any noticeable effect.
I'm continuing to talk to vw because my concern is the metal. The hyrdaulic bushing has died. Axle bush-wise did you replace the bolts? The front of the car is sitting a bit lower than the rear, so I believe most of the weight is shifted towards the front, therefore making the springs kinda free float? Final option: We have a company in South Africa called Fifth Avenue Motors which specializes and is highly regarded in suspension or other noises from automobiles. I checked the wheels and didn't see anything though I didn't check too thoroughly. I'm the second owner of this car. No real mods except a cleaned up bay.
Almost every single time I put my. I have raised the car and have tried to physically move the wheels, up, down, left, right, but I get no play in any direction. Chose not to repair because of cost. I am thinking strut mounts or possibly trans mount. So I will be replacing rear shocks and shock bumpers, both sides.
How long to swap them out? A while later the drivers door starts creaking again! So I think its a wheel bearing due to the fact it stops when I turn right, but thats why im here im not totally sure. The noise is definitely in the back, so the control arm bushings aren't the problem - yet! Might be the rubber bit in the middle of the torsion beam axle the so-called sway rod. I was thinking maybe sway bar bushings? Car is driving fine for now. The latter soon developed a reputation for good low-speed torque and fuel economy, and can operate on alternative biofuels. You only pay extra if parts are needed. In the mean time I call the vw customer care which tells me that they contacted the dealer and that the dealer beleves that the car is up to manufacturers specifications and that the noise I am hearing is normal and that all the cars have this noise.
