Question about Volkswagen Rabbit

1 Answer

Making buzzing noise when driving.

MY VW Rabbit is making a weird buzzing noise when I open the driver door and also the whole time I'm driving. It sounds like it's coming from the rear passenger side wheel, but like I said makes the sound when I open my drivers side door as well. What could this be?

I need to change a fuse in a 1984 vw rabbit. I don't know how. Could some one tell me how?

Open the little door under the steering column and check with your book and assiciate numbers. If no book check in your plastic door. I would check what you need to remplace by associating the numbers. Tool needed test light.
Check all your accessories one at the time , I mean ALL the acessories.

1998 Lincoln Town Car Air Suspension problem *buzzing noise

Um based on what your giving me I can only assume the battery light is goin on due to a heavy load on the alternator and its not happy. probably die from the buzzing noise?(possible air compressor due to a lean in the air ride?) but thats a guess. the battery light will go on when voltage sensor gets less than 12.5 volts. when the buzzing stops does the light go off shortly?

i doubt the windows have any thing to do with it, unless for some odd reason they are drawing power the whole time your driving around. get your alternator checked before you get stranded. im sure there is something causing extra stress, or its just the alternators time to die.

Good Luck

Ticking noise while car is running or idling

maybe is the air compresor and that's the noise that you hearing. Put the air in off if the noise stop, your problem is the compresor.
