VOLKSWAGEN JETTA IV 99 VW Jetta Rattling from rear of car issue

For going on 8 months now I have noticed in the rear of my jetta there is a knockingrattling sound that seems to have gotten worse as the weather has gotten colder. Ive taken it to the mechanic several times and theyve repaired numerous heat shields beneath the car but the source of this sound has evaded them every time I take it in. It will be easier if I present whats happening as points. -The noise

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA IV Rear End Noise 99 12 Jetta GLS

Hi folks. This is my first post. My question is in my jetta there is a noise that comes from the rear especially when its cold out andor there are a few extra things in the trunk. Hard to describe it but its sort of like a low pitched squeakgrindingvibrating noise. It happens mostly when Im going uphill or when the car is on a hilly road. Could it be the rear springsstrutsshocks Any other nuggets Thanks

So when weight is applied to the rear theres noise Sounds like a suspension problemto me unless of course your trunk is gonna fall off. Since that wont happen...lol...Im gonna put money on the rear suspension

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA IV 2002 Jetta clunk sounds...

Well my wife and I just purchased a 2002 jetta 4 cylinder turbo yesterday. I gotta say...this is one NICE car. A couple things concern us though. One thing I have never heard from a car is a loud thunk sound when travelling at high speed and applying the break quickly. Ive discovered that it is in fact the rear breaks hitting the rotors really fast. I checked the manual and it states that it has some

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA IV 98 Jetta GT - air conditioner low idle stalls

So Ive had quite a debacle with my 98 jetta GT over the last few weeks. Its got about 146k miles on it. Has been in great shape (except for a cruise control with a mind of its own) Ill start you all out with the history over the last few months Car was running great but would nearly stall during or after rainy days. Replaced the distributor and rotor and everything was fine. About a month ago I noticed

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Jetta is to Toyota Corolla as Passat is to (Blank)

What existing car model would you compare the Passat to Having seen the new jettas on the road I dont see much difference between it and the Toyotal Corolla (not a good thing). I understand that VW and other german car makers are changing their designs to appeal to upmarket Asian buyers (esp. BMW) but concerned that they have commoditized the brand rather than continue with a fresh and differentiated

a new rear suspesion that requires new packaging and possibly added weight. The old torsion beam rear axle was simpler and easier to package.

So if the passat looks like and infiniti M45 and the jetta

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Am I doing something wrong Suspension Question

Now that I finally have this question in the CORRECT section of the forum.. I might just get the answer Im in need of. I bought some KYB upper shock mounts for the rear of my B5.5. Im going to be running some FX Streetline coil-overs and I thought that I would replace all the bushings to assure the best quality ride possible. But heres the problem. These KYB mounts not only look 100% different from

Do the KYB mounts fit your Passat They look an awful lot like the upper rear mounts for a MkIV GTi or jetta. But then again the rear suspensions on these cars is very similar to the fwd Passats. Any comparison shots of the two parts I bought KYB shocks once for my old MkIII jetta. They were fine for a while but shot in less an a year.

Just an update. I did the install and hours later did the removal. I broke the myth on a variant I think. MKV stuff is NOT a direct swap. Even though curb weight on the jetta and passat are not much different the rear springs were to low even on the highest setting. I machined a spacer to raise the perch but after installing it. I thought to myself if something goes wrong and I injure my family or

Most of these terms include those that are VAG™s own internal names andor wording jargon that comes from popular sites like ClubB5 (CB5) and Passat World etc. as well as general car terms that we use for cars other than those made by VAG.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Do B6 lowering springs fit onto a CC

I still have no clue if they do. Ive been searching for suspension for the CC and cant find anything for it out yet. Was wondering if the B6 suspension can be put onto a CC with no issues

target audience of the rich and estabilshed folk just doesnt fit the bill. Now on the gti thats a different story. that IS a sports car and people are HIGHLY expected in market volumes to desire a lower ride height. also again about the pq46 sharing the mkv suspension components the spring perches... no.... the ENTIRE rear subframe assembly is teh same exact part numbers as on the mkv golfjetta

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Want a B6 but the options are tough

I have been exclusively a VW owner since I got my license. Recently my wife traded her 2003 24v VR6 GLI in for a Highlander because she was pregnant with booger 2. Now we both regret it. We would have gotten a Touareg but they were too expensive. Now the B6 comes out and were in love... until trying to sort the options. I have a sinking feeling that the car we want isnt configurable. First we wanted

no where near happy with options. I want the 3.6 its supposed to be a SICK engine. The tip-tronic tranny is NOT a VW tip anymore they are coming from the Mitsubishi plant in Japan. They are supposed to be a cost saver to get more Passats sold at cheaper price. Has anybody seen the list price for a 3.6 LOADED Passat Cheaper than a loaded B5.5 was a couple years. Honestly I would go with a new GLI jetta.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 The Net York Times talks about VW styling...

Heres an excerpt from Thursday September 16 New York Times talknig about the new jetta styling. What they say is also true for the new Passat. Undoubtedly this jetta is more mature than any of the four generations that preceded it - both bigger and more luxurious - but it also lacks much of what made the previous version so attractive. While the last jetta was a ho-hum mechanical package the finely

most popular Passat model in the USA in terms of sales and enthusiast following. Now in defense of the B6 VW has returned to the transverse layout first started with the B3 Passat to take advantage of the newly added independent rear suspension . Remember the torsion beam it has been in use since the introduction of the rabbit back in 1974. This is part of the reason why the PQ46 and the markV jetta

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 An idea of how the new passat will drive

I have just driven the new jetta and a 2.0t A4 Audi. Based on that I have an idea as to how the new Passat may drive. The new suspension in the jetta is great mainly due to the new rear. It road and handled well. The Audi I drive has sport syspension. With our winter ravaged roads here in MD it was harsh. Might feel different on a warm summer day with repaved roads. Both cars had the six speed triptronic.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Boston Globe 2006 GLI Review - Compares favorably with new Passat

Boston Globe 2006 GLI Review This jetta is bigger than past jettas and quite spacious most noticeable in the rear. Thats partly why I asked last week if some might pass on the bigger Passat in favor of the jetta with the hot engine at a few thousand less.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Short Review My thoughts on the B6

Stopped in on Saturday with Ian and took a B6 out for a spin. Pros 2.0T - Very nice motor with nice power delivery. No noticeable lag. Cabin noise - Not much at all. No turbo noise engine subdued when cruising. Interior - Plenty of room. Added thigh support in both front and rear seats is nice. Leatherette had a nice feel to it. Seats seemed well bolstered for not being sport seats. No door pins for

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 W8 to B6 4Motion

After doing some searching and a call from my favorite VW Service Advisor I decided to snag a 3.6L 4Motion Passat. Black on Black the only way to go Im getting used to VWs Navigation System and Sirius Radio isnt that bad. Why VAG decided against using touch-screens is beyond me but the Dynaudio sounds pretty good and the NAVTEQ DVD is up-to-date The ride isnt as floaty as the stock B5.5 but you know

I have the 3.6 4Mo with the Spt2 package BBS 18x8 VZs with 23540-18 Pirelli Pzero Neros and H&Rs. My BBS are ET37 or 38 and I get rubbing on big dips in the rear no spacers are required. I recommend 18x8 et40 max for anyone doing springs and 18s. I will be adding the VW suspension limiters (bump stops) and modifying the spring seats to raise the rear about 12. Too low imo for practical driving but the progressive springs handle great. I want to be able to carry people in back without dragging my ass end. The sport package also gives you much better Sachs dampers than the Lux which is a better match for the H&Rs and larger diameter sway bars. Will probably upgrade to bilsteins ifwhen they ever become available. Aftermarket selection for this car sucks. Heres a few pics of my B64MO from another MkV thread at Vortex. I VAGGed this guys jetta for him to activate his rear fog. httpforums.vwvortex.comzerothreadid2822592

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 B6 Styling

Been studying my new B6 every time i read something about the bland styling or lack of styling etc. If i had to use a word to describe it would be refined or understated. I remember when the B5 came out in 97 and it was a VERY different car from the standards of the day - Accord Camry and Maxima. Anyone notice that by 2002 there were so many passat look a likes in the marketplace. To me owning a B5

of interest seems to be the new corporated taillight that exibit such Japanese inspired look. To many of us european car fans that are used to german designed (boring looking) taillight that are merely there for purpose of function. I do agree with GLXs comment of the B5 had a lure to it buy being a mechanical clone to the A4. But I dont think that in anyway VW lessened the passat by using the jettas

Audi TT 225HP diverter valve due to the fact its only 49.95 compared to two hundred. Look into getting an exhaust itll allow some better air flow and give you a nice tone at the same time.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B7 Any past B5.5 owners How does the B7 compare

If you have owned a B5.5 1.8T in the past especially a manual one how would you compare it to your new B7 Handling ride noise acceleration just general driving feel roominess interior quality etc. What do you prefer over your old B5.5 and what do you miss Thanks.

I went with jetta GLI two months ago (Ive replaced my older car and still keeping B5.5 1.8T 5MT) Roughly the same size as B5.5 more rear legroom though (bigger size wasnt an absolute necessity) Roughly the same interior quality as B7 Passat 2.0T6MTsport suspension standard is sweet Electrical steering (not bad actually) Price still in mid 20s Little bit more road noise than B5.5 (probably due to stock tires) Would consider B7 if they offer 2.0T but it wont happen in the near future I think.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Would you buy a 2010 Passat now

I am considering buying a Passat. Now that the 2010 model is going to be the last model before the completely new model goes on sale. Would you buy a new Passat for 23269 That is a base model with no options. It has an MSRP of 27945 and Invoice of 26595. By next year my car will be the old body. Should I just wait for the new model

I just bought one much like the one you describe. Im pretty happy with it. This is a highly refined car the ultimate evolution of the model. It may not turn heads but it looks nice to me and is an exceptionally competent driver. Alternatively the competition is the CC at a cost which is higher or the new jetta decontented as it is with a more primitive rear suspension and fewer features -- unless you

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 05 or 08 that is the question....

I sold my 1998 1.8t a few months ago & regret it.... Looking at newer passats but reallly like the way my 98 handlerode. I also like that the 98 is pretty much an a4 seemed pretty solid. With that being said are the B6s built on an A4 platform or are they as I have heard changed & now a jettaGulf platform & if so how do they compare to anyone that has made the switch from B5 thanks for any input good & bad.

First post here so here goes... Ive had a B5 and now a B6 and the newer car is apparently based on the jettaGolf platform however thats not a bad thing. The Golf sportwagon is about the same size as a B5 (a tad smaller) but its very solid. The B6 comes with independant rear suspension something the fwd B5s didnt have and this is a huge improvement. the new platform is bigger more refined and incorporates a lot of niceities youd find on an Audi or W8. I couldnt be happier with my new B6.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Hiding

I have decided to hide in the B6 forum from now on. I went wandering this evening through other discussions and was meeting to much hostility towards my car I love my car and couldnt be happier...as much as I loved my B5 Passat. Why so much hostility Someone has to own the B6s just like someone had to own the B5.5s when they came out. I thought this forum was for Passat owners and not just B5B5.5s

change so I always keep that in mind and keep an open mind. I am guilty of giving negative first impression comments of the B6 but I still welcome the changes. I dont see anything that would not make the b6 lure drivers of other makes away from there current brand if they are looking for a large car with a 4 cylinder that has decent power and options. Most people have thing to say about the new jetta

The part numbers are listed so if you want a particular items you can have the dealer order them for you. The thing that jumped out at me was

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Fuel pump access in 2003 wagon

Ive been thinking about replacing the fuel pump in my 2003 passat wagon. 1.8T FWD. Couple of questions. 1. Is the access spot to the top of the pump the same as it is in the sedan Ive read through the procedure at a4mods.com it looks like they did that work on a sedan. Was just wondering if its under the rear seat for the wagon as well or somewhere in the cargo area 2. Once the fuel pump is out will

a4s as the rear suspension is completely different. The access cover for our pumps is on the passenger side in the trunk just behind the back seat. Pull up the trunk carpet and youll see a black access panel with 3 phillips head screws. Open that up and then it should be the same procedure as the a4 for removalinstall. Just a rumor I heard from the guys at 034- you may or may not have a mk4 (gtijetta)

NISSAN I Drive A Versa Because I CHOOSE To

When we went shopping for a new car this time around we researched and test drove more vehicles than for any previous transportation Ive owned.

Every vehicle was test driven a night in the country to evaluate headlight effectiveness and interior visibility. Some vehicles have

However the reflector is designed in such a way that they offer pretty decent vision (even illumination as well as light out to the sides) on low beam which is the way we drive about 95% of the time anyway. My bet is that the jetta will have superior lighting. Certainly the volkswagen
