Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

VW Polo 2002 SE

My car makes a squeaky noise on the front driver' side every time I go up and down a kerb or going through a bump. Initially I thought it was my suspension but after replacing a new strut and spring the noise is still there. Does anyone have any idea what that noise could be??

My 1989 chevrolet c1500 is making squeaky noises when i go on bumps even small ones and i noticed its made on the fron left side an i also noticed it makes a similar squeaky noise when i steer the steering...

Hello. Im replying on my phone, sorry if this is short. Its most likely your shocks. You can find out if you stand on your front bumper and jump up and down and see if it makes the same noise. If it does then its your shocks. You can get shocks anywhere. Online would be most recommended. It may take a while to get an aplication for your truck locally. Hope this helps!

the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery

Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
