Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
On the passenger side of the car I hear a knocking sound when I am parked with the car on. I cannot tell if it's towards the front or back of the car. This noise occurs frequently. I took to the dealer and the cannot replicate the sound (go figure).

Go to the VW Vortex site, or VWFixx, or RussTech and stroll around the forums. Find someone near you with a Vag-Com and get the codes. Or go to AutoZone and get the codes.
I've got a 2001 1.8T New Beetle and I am alwasy getting codes. Have repaired and replaced, repaired and replaced, a number of things. O2 sensors, hoses, valves, sensors, etc, etc., and couldn't do any of it without the VagCom.
Bottom line to help is codes, we need codes.

SOURCE: KNOCKING SOUND WHILE BRAKING
The key sentence is "KNOCKING OCCURS WHEN BRAKING AT ANY SPEED." With out being able to test drive the car I would have to say from experience it is the ROTOR. The rotor had a bump or a high spot on it. The rotor suppose to worn evenly but for some reason you did not.
The solution is you have to take the rotor out and have it machine flat.
Some time it can be machine and sometime it has to be replace.
You have to replace both rotors at the same time not one.
This is because both has to have equal size.
I do hope this help you.

its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.

the sound is your belts for the I recommend to pressure wash the area what till it drys then turn the engine on then look for the leak it would be easier to pin point a leak with a clean engine
