Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Grinding noise I have a 96 gti and I have a grinding noise in the front drivers side under the peddles, I took it in and told them I thought it was the brakes. ( I had my brakes and abs replaced last year) I was told that it was not a brake issue? The problem is my abs and my ebrake light are on all the time now? They told me not to worry about this?? Before I spend another $1100.00 Im hoping someone out there may have an idea? P.S. The noise started when I tried to slow down and all of a sudden there was a grinding sound, that my friend thought I had grinded the gears, I explained I didnt touch the gear shift I just wanted to slow down a little. Thats when the abs and ebrake light came on? Please if you can help I'd appreciate it so much! Thank you:)

Grinding noise in the front end of a 96 Cherokee laredo


this is a hand on fix
no web bunny on earth can do this. why ask>?
and if i do, it delays the fix. and possible danger that...
no you can not hope, only FATE rules earth and entropy.
take the car to service and find the cause.
it can be bad caliper or pads, or stuck slider in caliper
or a 2x4 hit the brake backing plate, a 5min fix.
why guess, and worse why drive a dangerous car.
why delay?
ID assume the worse, its brakes or the suspension i bad.
all very dangerous.
get it inspected by live living humans.

A knocking and grinding noise coming from underneath the car,


if you had the CV JOINTSreplaced , they both should have lasted for a long time, how much do you trust your mechanic ? always something to consider ! also, the mechanic who replaced the CV'S last time, did he do a good job ? was there a grinding noise then ? did you get a warranty on the previous cv's, I'm not tryin to point any fingers, just sayin, you need to be aware of every move you make, and who you make it with. NOW, go to good transmission shop, have them test drive ,with you in car, and inspect your front end and transmission, its free , good luck

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)

Reverse gear has grinding noise...?


Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.
