Check the rear springs and be sure the coils are not broken. Both of them broke on my 99 A4, right at the bottom where the spring sits on the perch. It didn't cause problems in driving since the continuous part of the spring was seated, but the excess seated spring coil was snapped off. I've seen it on other A4s as well, so I wouldn't be surprised if your Jetta has a similar problem. Dismount the rear wheels and inspect the coil springs - if they're broken, it'll be evident. If they are, you can likely pick up another set from someone on eBay or www.vwvortex.com at a reasonable price.

SQUEAKY, CREAKY, NOISE AT LOW SPEEDS ON DRIVERS SIDE. 2001 CHEVY SILVERADO. NOT IN BRAKES.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Pretty much a suspension bushing problem. If the lower suspension bushing is worn out, it tends to make a creaky noise. Once replace you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SUSPENSION KNOCK AT REAR BMW E46 COMPACT WHEN DRIVING AT LOW SPEEDS OR GOING OVER BUMPS THERES A LOT OF KNOCKING CAN NOT HERE IT WHEN GOING A NORMAL DRIVING SPEED THO ANY SUGGESTIONS


There are a couple of things that can cause it. The first and easiest to diagnose, is the strut. BMWs sometimes get "creaky" struts...diagnose this my pushing down on the car on each corner, and when it moves, see if it makes any noise. If this doesn't yield anything, then the next step is to look under the car at the rubber or plastic bushings at the pivot points of the suspension. while you're under there, look at the ball joint boots as well and see if any are torn. If so, they will need replaced. If you still haven't found anything, place a jack on the suspension arm at each wheel, one at a time. if the tires slides out a little when it just starts clearing the ground, you likely have worn ball joints.
