Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
I have recently bought a '53' plate three door VW Polo, which only has 18,500 miles.
Whenever I go over any bumps I can hear a ceaking noise coming from the front passenger side. More so when I go over speed humps. My girlfriend describes it as a creaking and slight grinding noise. It doesn't feel like the steering or ride of the vehicle is affected at all.
When I had my vehicle MOT'd they said that the bush had slight movement and a slight tear in it. However my mechanic said that it wouldn't affect the vehicle and wouldn't cause the noise. He also told me that the noise might go away when I drive it more, as it may have been sitting around not being driven for a while.
I thought I'd try yourselves before I take it to a VW dealer. I hope you can help.
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
