Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
1998 VW Jetta GLS (5 speed) started making this strange noise only when decellerating. We have ruled out a worn CV joint or shaft and are suspecting the transmission. Have you any idea? For a 10 yr old vehcile, would this kind of repair be expected? Thank you.
I had a wheel bearing that went out that made a horrible feeling when slowing. many people say that when the bearing goes you should not be able to drive it however i drove on the broken bearing for over 500 miles. also try autohausaz.com has all the parts that you will need at least 50% off or
better. try them out i only buy though them and love them. hope this
works for you.

Try looking at the rear struts my girls car makes a strange noise and i've located the problem to be the rear drivers side strut.

10 years is not a long lifetime and wear is far more dependent on mileage. If it is over the 100, 000 mile mark, it wouldn't be unusual to have problems. A number of FWD cars have two CV joints (inner tripodal and outer) so checking only outer CVs may not find the problem. If the car is not a AWD vehicle, it would make sense to raise both front wheels from the ground and then with running engine, go through the gears and simulate the condition under which the problem shows up on the road. This may not be conclusive since the problem might not occur with no load on the drive wheels.
