You might have a torn booth at the joint. I had this problem on my car when I was making turns. Driving straight didn't give me the noice. Only when making turns. When a booth is torn dust gets into the greese and wears out the wheel bearing.

Most probably a worn ball joint. Jack the front of the car in the air, and place one hand at the top of the tire and one hand below the tire. Then push with one hand and at same time pull with hte other. If the wheel mnoves, loose parts. In any case doubt u can do this alone in hte street, must have it serviced by a tech and might as well do both sides and and alignement while ur at it.

Good luck.

Front end noise

A few possibilities with front end noise. Possible worn shock bushings or suspension bushings. As a car accelerates or slows down, the front suspension raises or lowers, thus causing movement of front end components.

New rear suspension and they make noise

Caravans had a real issue with rear suspension noises, and one of the suggestions from Dodge was the addition of a spacer washer at the bottom shock mount to space it a little farther away from the axle housing. I have seen many new shocks that "knocked" right out of the box new. It is possible one of the new ones is defective

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?

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!

My 2003 Volkswagen Passat makes a terrible nolise in the rear end when getting in and out of the car, what is that? The noise is like a squeaking, rubbing noise

This would most likely be suspension related, but to find it you need to safely jack up the car and actuate the suspension in the same way, to make the squeak, Look for shiny spots where something may be rubbing, look closely and listen at rear shocks and springs...

Hi, I have a lot of bumping noise when i drive on

The bushings to the front suspension are completely worn out. They must be replaced before the shock damage your other suspension parts.

I replaced hub on front axel but the noise is

It sounds like it is a front end suspension problem. The following should be checked: upper and lower ball joints, the sway bars links, and even the shocks. Replace what is problematic, and your front-end noise should disappear, if it is a front suspension problem. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!
