Check the abs rings are not touchin the sensor (buckled) IF you use replacement cv from other than a reputable joint rebuilder or new oem equipment the problem sounds like you haven't fixed the fault. clicking while turning at slow speeds relates to worn cv joints.

SOURCE: Grinding noise in the left

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).

SOURCE: 1998 VW Cabrio loud humming from what sounds like the transaxle

Have you checked that the noise is not tyre noise?
Interchange the wheels front to rear (or left to right) to see if it has any effect on the noise.

Only do the test below if the car is securely chocked so as not to move, take great care not to contact moving parts!
Securely jack both the car drivewheels off the ground, then 'drive' the vehicle through through the problem drive speed/gears while listening for the noise. If the noise occurs under these circumstances you may be able to further localise the source by listening (very carefully!)with a short hose pipe held to the ear.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt. Recently during a snow storm the vehicle went through a ditch. No damage was done to the car. It was the most minute accident ever. Anyways the next day i noticed some noise...


Based on your description, I'm thinking the problem is in the transmission casing. I was thinking it was a wheel bearing, based on your description, but that is contradicted by the fact that you say it doesn't sound like it's a wheel or hub bearing.

You say that the the rf cv axle is now leaking where it goes into the trans. I'd say that's a good place to start looking.

A damaged cv axle or half shaft might make more clicking noises on a tight turn. The cv axle is greased up and has balls inside some designs.

Have you checked the transmission fluid level to see how much fluid has been lost thorugh the place where the cv axle enters the trans.? If adding fluid makes the sound lessen or go away, then the trans. is at fault, vs. the cv axle.

Good luck on this repair.

Can 97 vw cabrio manual pull a 1200lb boler trailer


No. The Cabrio is not made for towing and does not have the proper axle ratio, trans cooler, etc. Ive seen a lot of people these days putting trailer hitches on cars and for larger cars this may work as the motor can compensate. Your Cabrio is 4 cylinder and to pull that load will overwork the motor and cause it to fail much sooner. Not to mention that it will wear out your clutch plate in your manual transmission.

How to change a burned head light on a 2000 vw cabrio?


Changing headlights on VW Cabrio I just changed the headlights on my roommate's 2002 Cabrio, but I followed the instructions given for a 2001. What you have to do is: 1. Move the metal wire holding the black cover to the side and remove the black cover. 2. Remove the power cord from the bulb itself and push to the side. 3. You will see a pin holding the headlight in. Squeeze the pin (you want to squeeze closer to the top of the pin, which is the closed end; don't squeeze the open ends because all you will do is get irritated and hurt your fingers), then push it back and down. What this will do is move the pin away and then out from those little metal tabs that its going through. One side will pop out, then the other. When you get it out, the pin should be standing up, with the closed end pointing up. You can then remove the bulb and replace. Popping the pin back in is a heck of a lot easier than getting it out! I was able to remove the cover, but I got totally stumped on the pin. I hope this helps you out, it may be a little confusing but its kind of difficult to describe. Maybe this will at least point you in the right direction!

Unable to start my 2001 cabrio vw. I have a fairly new battery. Lights work. When I turn the key, there's nothing not a crank, nothing.


I would look to see if the anti-theft light is on next to the door lock. A 95 cabrio did this when I was test driving it. All we did was get out of the vehicle and manual lock and unlock the car, then it went away. This could definitely be more complicated than this, but always worth a try.
