Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My 2003 Volkswagen Jetta (gas engine if that matters) has been squeaking almost nonstop. I haven't changed anything since I've gotten it which was not that long ago, but I don't know the history of work it has gotten. It has about 102k on it right now. The squeaking isn't the brakes, that much I know. It's coming from the front passenger side. I'm wondering if it's a belt, but I really have no clue. It doesn't seem to be effecting the performance of the car (at least not yet, knock on wood), The last time I had something that sounded like this on a car it was the serpentine belt. I can't hear the squeaking when it's at a stop, or going below 20 mph, but it gets louder the faster it goes.
I know this isn't much to go on but any suggestions are appreciated!
If you can't hear it when it is stopped, then the serpentine belt cannot be the problem. My 2002 Jetta has squeaks in the suspension bushings. Spraying silicone lube on them temporarily stops the squeaking.

As you probably know squeaking could be alot of things, but the most common noise, that would not effect performance, would be serpentine belts. You can buy a can of belt dressing at Autozone, that you spray on the inside, the contact side, of the belt. If it is the belt, this should help. If it's been a long time since replaced you may want to replace belt. Alot of those belts will break after being worn out, but the better quality belts may not break, but they will make a horrendous squealing noise. If it's not the belt, you'd have to have someone look at it to troubleshoot. Good luck.
