VW Golf 1.9TDI Rear suspension problems

I have a VW Golf 1.9TDI. I recently noticed that the back of the car (rear suspension) seems very loose/low when I have a couple of people in the back. Does this sound like a major issue or does the suspension need fixing, replacing?
Any comments would be great, thanks.

    I wouldn't say the car bounces alot, sounds like the shocks might of already gone getting it checked tomorrow. When I go over bumps I would say that it seems to just thud a lot more than usual rather than bounce about.

If the car bouces alot when you go over a speed bump or in and out of dips the shocks could be wearing out. look and see if they look oily if the do should get the replaced before the springs break and your end up riding on axel.

VW Golf 2007 1.9TDI, I was recently in a accident approx 20mph, and crashed head on into a turning car. What is making the kinda rattling/clicking noise, more noticeable during gear changes.


This could be almost anything from loose trim to broken body parts, you should get the car checked by bodyshop to make sure that it is safe to drive

sounds like you need to have the rear suspension checked for any damage and then a 4 wheel alignment to check rear angles.

Does the 97 vw golf gl 2.0 have 4 struts for suspension or is it struts in the front and shocks in the back?


struts in the front and shocks in the rear, the rear shocks have coil springs over the shocks, like the front struts, but you dont need to use a spring compressor tool on them which is neccessary on struts

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on


Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf


no i  can assure you the vw golf is very well made and will take those wheels on the car without any problems at all, it will also add a little more traction as the tyres will be wider so the car will handle the road a little better, i presume that vw are trying to rip you off as you seem a little vunerable but i think that it would not be a problem at all, hope that helps

Squeeky car!!!


Hi.
it is worth checking the rear seat mounting brackets and fixings.
Earlier models suffered with a similar problem and the noise sounded like a rear suspension problem.

Hope this helps.
