Question about 2009 Volkswagen Eos
I just picked my preowned 2009 VW EOS hard top convertible up from the dealership because I had to have the clutch replaced. I noticed that as I accelerated I could hear a new noise...it sounds like a high pitched--tightly wound fan is running secondary to the motor. I did take it back to the dealership and the mechanic drove it with me. He could hear it but could only guess that it might be an early right front wheel barring going out? I'm just not feeling convinced.
It is a wheel bearing, no doubt.
the wheel bearing is pressed in so if you do the job yourself you will need to take the hub somewhere to have the new bearing pressed in, but 100% the bearing.

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

I think it is the cabin/ pollen filter.
The noise is louder on normal AC operation cos thats when the air is being pulled in through the filter and the sound decreases with recirculate because the filter only functions for outside air.
Need to use a credit card or similar to seperate and move the upper dash centre piece towards windscreen, it clips off. Then open the 3 x torx screws and lift the dash on the passenger side. then remove the plastic cover (oddly shaped) it has about 7 screws, then twist and remove, it requires some real effort, then pollen filter is visible. replace filter and voila! it would make your AC perform like a new car again!!
Hope it helps, Yusuf Johannesburg-South Africa firstname.lastname@example.org
