I had the same problem. One of your strut tower mounts has failed. You need to replace the fautly mount.

Squeaking noise bump


High probability that it is the strut mounts, they don't have a very high life cycle. Very difficult to test while mounted.Creaking might just be a dry suspension, but the bumping noise definitely good indication of those strut mountings. You could check if fastening them more on the chassis makes any difference. Quick and accurate diagnosis if you can drop by suspension people.

2007 VW Jetta (wolfsberg). It's making grinding


It sounds like the inner liner of one of your wheel wells has come loose and is touching the wheel. This would make a sound while moving, but not while stopped. Look inside your wheel wells for the plastic lining that goes all the way around the tire. Look for wear signs. It may even be a hole by now. If you see wear, tug on that wheel well liner to see if it is loose. If so, get replacement screws to hold it in place.

That would explain rumble sounds, high pitched sounds, changing sound when hitting bumps. And it would not affect any dynamics.

The creaking and groaning when car is turned off is a different animal. Possibly something to do with A/C which is depressuring after the car is turned off. To determine if that is the case, see if it makes the same sounds if you've been driving with the A/C off? If not, it's A/C related.

Creaking sound from front passenger side of VW Polo 2003


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

Creaking noise coming from front end.


YES! if you pay any one for any repair and it does something it didnt do before definitely have them check it out...........they may have missed something or forgot to tighten a bolt or damaged another component in the process. it sounds like a strut bearing or an improperly re-installed ball joint.
Hope this helps.........Good Luck!
