Radio quits when taken out of park or neutral

Sounds like the physical movement of the linkage is pulling or rubbing the harness. Get up under the dash and see how the harness is located.

VW 2004 V-6 Touareg: I have un-indentified grinding, shimming in my front end. It's not bad tires, out of balance tires nor engine related. At 2000 RPM/50-65 mph a thumping noise, even in neutral, more...

Find a shop with a 'rolling road' or 'electric chassis ears'.

Chassis ears are microphones you place under or around the car and drive it listening to each microphone to locate the noise.

Rolling road you can listen whilst going nowhere.

Sound like you have a collapsed engine mount allowing engine to rub somewhere.

There is a clicking under the driver side dash but only when the car is rolling down the road

if its under the dash then it sounds to me like it could be the fan assembly rotating and rubbing on the housing. not to sound neanderthal but smack your dash with your hand a couple of times. it may dislodge whatever is causing the problem. keep me apprised of results.......phil

Chain hanging down sound

It sounds like maybe the wheel bearing is going bad and might get louder as you turn.

Rubbing noise comming from underneath or rear of bike.

I will bet the chain is talking to you. I can hear its' voice from here... it's saying " Please adjust me , please adjust me, and lubricate me also." Chains can be such a pain at times. :)

Please rate this answer. Thanks keakins2! :)

Chain problem

I noticed a repetetive whirring coming from somewhere near the front sprocket- Or at least I'm pretty sure that's where it's coming from. It's not quite a grinding but it sounds like some sort of contact problem. I jacked up the bike, and the rear wheel spins freely in neutral except for a small area which seems to need just a *little* more force to spin around. Not sure if it's from the rear wheel or from whatever might be wrong up towards the front. The noise has an accompanying gritty feel, which rather reminds me of a bent rotor rubbing lightly at a certain point once per cycle on the brake pad. No amount of variation of pressure or speed in braking seems to affect the problem. There's no obvious performance issues, and I only hear it when I've got the clutch pulled in (probably because it's not loud enough to hear over the exhaust, not because it isn't happening). I ran the bike downhill in neutral and it still makes this noise. I lubed and adjusted the chain a day or so ago, and the adjustment notches are at the same point on each side. I had also ridden over a set of train rails cut deeply into the road, but I doubt that had much impact on anything. Any ideas?,Sounds like your chain may not have stretched evenly. You also may have it adjusted too tightly. You should always adjust the chain so that you have the specified slack at its tightest point. Do you know how many miles/KMs are on on this chain/sprocket set?,,,
