Question about Volkswagen Passat

2 Answers

I am needing to replace the rubber bushing on the center front torque rod of a 2002 vw passat. I was told that the easiest way to do this is by removing the bolts that hold the strut mount on. Is this correct? if so, is the strut mount that they are referring to attached to the block, or the sub-frame ?

    i am needing to replace the rubber bushing on the front torque rod of a 2002 vw passat, 6 cyl, 2.8 ltr. I can see where the bushing is missing when i look under the hood up by the radiator. What is the easiest way to replace this if doing this on my own?

It is connected to both,Like I said before remove the bolts holding it on,and replace it,you will most likely have to rock the car to make the engine move forward,enough to remove,and replace the bolts that hold it on,it is not that bad of a job.The whole torque strut mount will have to be replaced,not just the bushing.

20003 VW Passat, 1.8t. Replaced front struts, but I still have rattle on some, but not all bumps. Could this be from control arms?


Absolutely!
This rattle noise is coming from one or more bad control arms (ball joints & bushes). You should carefully check all of them, then replace bad control arm(s). The best idea is to replace all of them = front suspension control arms kit.
Good Luck!

I am told that my "front end bushing" need replacing. Is $1200.00 a reasonable price for this work?


No, that is an outrageous price if you are referring to the control arm bushing. That bushing costs around $65 at a VW dealer and can be bought aftermarket for as little as $15. Takes one hour to replace. So it should cost around $150 at the dealer. $1200 is outrageous.

2002 VW passat wagon brakes


Check the level of the brake fluid, as the pads wear down the fluid level falls slightly and the sensor reacts and gives the warning, it may happen more as you are cornering and the brake fluid moves, try gently topping up the brake fluid it doesn't need much..

I feel a slight thud in the steering and hear a light thud when I turn a corner; seems to happen most when the car has just started driving; is this an issue of power steering fluids, something in the rack...


This is most likely the steering knuckle or tie rod end that needs grease or most likley replacement. If your hear clunk when turning, then it is proabably the tie rod ends. If clunks while driving, then it may be the balljoints.

2005 trailblazer front end noises


Tie rod ends can make noise as can stabilizer bushings. They can both be bad at the same time. If tir rod ends are non-greasable it's likely that they could need service.(check with wheel off the ground...shake back and forth and note play in end.) If they have grease fittings, grease them..if noise disappears they were dry.
Bushings are pretty obvious when bad, the rubber parts peel out and fall away, or the hole in the rubber gets very large. You can see this with little or no training.
