Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds

When driving on the freeway (around 50 - 70 MPH) There is a rattling or vibration noise coming from the passenger side of the car. May sound like its coming from the front or rear tire area. Could it be the axle? This noise happens more often after I have been going above 50 MPH then I release the gas pedal, but not pressing the brake pedal yet. Just releasing the gas pedal and letting it run you can hear the noise. What could this be?

    Jacques007 great feedback! So you're telling me I need to replace the front Galiper AND the axle? OR just the Galiper?

I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

Vibration in dash of 2005 ford focus


Is it the dash vibrating or is because of wheel vibration? Generally the dash is pretty sturdy and unless its been in a major prang and the panel beaters have missed putting some of the screws back, it shouldn't vibrate. If the vibration starts at a certain speed and the steering wheel vibrates too, I would say its a wheel balance problem. Any Tyre place should be able to rebalance the wheels and sort this out for you. There is a possibility of a drive shaft vibration but im not sure how you check that out. If it is the dash, then good luck... There are many screws, bolts etc that hold the dash together, You will have to by trial and error , see which one is loose or missing. Before you do anything though, check that nothing is loose and rattling or vibrating in your glove box, ashtray or tissue holder. . There used to be this ad on TV showing a Guy who stripped his entire dashboard down to fix an annoying rattle. When he was looking at the hundred parts or so lying on the driveway, he found a couple of spare coins nuts and bolts rattling around in the ashtray which was the cause of the rattle!

Rattling noise from the dashbody


The noise could be due to worn universal joint on drive shaft. Could be going bad. Slowly starts as a rattle with a little vibration and over time it gets worse. If there's no propeller type drive shaft, running down the center under the car, then it is something else

Rattling noise coming from the driver's side front end


it could be a heat sheild on the exsaust its not a real problem, but if bothers you that much you could tighten the bolts or even take it off. and about your check engin light it could be your gas cap not being tightened enough because on subaru cars the gas caps must click atlease 4 times or a check engin light will show up due to a code sent to the computer saying the gad cap is loose

When driving or starting the car i notice when using the brakes it makes a squeaking noise - not all the time think its possibly damp causing it as it was raining yesterday and it happened but no rain...


To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".

Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.

Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.

As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).

What part is located in the front of the engine between the engine head and the radiator, it is making a rattling sound at high idle


lots of parts, alternator, water pump, a/c compressor lower area . many of them are on the serpentine belt. the pulleys and tensioner can make rattles. you need to confirm which part has the rattle or vibration, use a stick or screw driver. touch one end on the part and the other near your temple...any noise/vibration coming through?

fiind which one it is. lower noise on the crank can also sound like its coming from up front and that's a deep rattle.

Rattling noise when applying gas,sometimes when idling in park.Maybe muffler/drivetrain vibrations No noise cruising


You just might not hear the noise when it is at speed or the engine vibrations are not at the right frequency to cause the resonance.
I'd check the heat shield around the catalytic convertor; they are notorious for doing this and we have one rattling currently too!
