Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

I have a vw golf gti. P reg 1996. recently it has


Hi Frank
If as you say....Nothing is happening at all when you turn the key, you appear to have one of two problems. A faulty starter motor--or--- A faulty ignition switch. If you can tap the starter motor while another person keeps the key turned to the start position, and the engine now starts you now know it is a starter problem. When doing this PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF GEAR.
If it should start up, or even engage the starter motor while IN GEAR, serious injuries could happen, and I do not mean to your car.
Good luck
John

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

Clicking noise on my 06 GTI!


You can be sure you have engine damage now. There is not just one thing to check. It needs to go to the shop ASAP before you drive it anymore.

Possible damages

Cam bearings
Main bearings
Rod bearings
Cracked rod and main caps
Bent rods
Damaged Piston and wrist pins
Damaged cam
Broke springs
Bent valves
Damged crank
The list can go on. So that is be best advice to give.
