  2. Fox (type 5Z) 2005 - 2011
    Hi, i have a 2010 VW Fox and the power steering rack has gone, so needs replacing. With it being quite old now, with 90,000+ miles on the clock, i'd rather put a second hand part on it and save myself a few quid. Speaking to VW, they gave me a part number 6Q2423055R, which brings up a number of...
  3. Polo 4 - (type 9N1 & 9N3) 2002 - 2009
    G'day. Hope your all well. On my other half polo, unfortunately the steering pump went on it during the winter. Unfortunately I was overseas so I couldn't sort it out. However a trusty garage down the road looked after us. However.... she did inform me that the steering light has never gone...

  5. Passat 7 - (type 36) 2010 - 2015
    Hi all. After a long period of trouble free motoring, I just had a new issue to address. Driving quite slowly down a side street, I went to stop and noticed the brake came on with a bit of a graunch. It didn't sound like pads gone (shouldn't be, as the car was serviced a few months ago and nowt...

  8. Interior
    Hi Our Passat's clock spring broke, which has now been replaced. During the replacement process (which obviously involved taking off the steering wheel) the garage managed to deface the badge on the steering wheel (photos below). It looks as if someone used a screwdriver to lift the edge... :(...
  9. Passat 6 - (type 3C) 2005 - 2011
    Our airbag warning light came on today after some odd noise coming from the steering wheel. It sounds like a loose cable scratching across plastic. We have booked our car in at our local garage for some diagnostic tests on Monday. I think I will ask them to check the steering wheel first; maybe...
  10. Touran 1 - (type 1T) 2003 - 2015
    Hi, I have a 2011 Touran 1.6 TDi. About 6 months ago I started to feel something strange with the steering. The steering wheel "pulsed" felt notchy when turning a corner. This has very gradually got worse over time. Now I can really notice a notchy effect when I turn the wheel with the car...

    Good Evening All, I have a VW Polo 1.2 TSI 2011 and it is pulling to the left. It has been into the workshop about 6 times, but they have been unable to resolve the issue. The steering wheel also doesn't sit straight. It has now been escalate to management, so I will see what happens. It would...

    I recently brought a VW Bora 1.6 S and after a day or two of driving suddenly i realised, when i was turning around i heard a fairly loud squeal coming from the front driver side, by the wheel. If i turn slowly it doesn't make this sound but the faster i turn the louder it is, it is on coilovers...

  15. Suspension & Handling
    Hello, yesterday I started my 2007 1.9tdi Golf and noticed the steering was lighter than usual, but there is no warning lights on my dash or error messages. I was out of town so took it to a nearby garage and they said there was nothing loose or broken but they didn't have the equipment to...
  16. Passat 7 - (type 36) 2010 - 2015
    Power steering issue I've noticed over the last couple of weeks that the steering is not as easy to turn as it used to be and also when I insert the key and start the car the steering wheel used to do a little shuffle left and right which it doesn't do anymore. I would put it down to front...

  19. Touran 1 - (type 1T) 2003 - 2015
    Hello. I was having a small problem with the steering jittering and creaking when driving and took it to the garage. The mechanic told me that it was a worn joint in the track rod end and that it needed replacing. It wasn't too bad but I like to have my car looked at if it doesn't feel right so...
  20. Polo 4 - (type 9N1 & 9N3) 2002 - 2009
    I noted strange noise coming from the steering. It is like a golf ball is rolling on a flat piece of metal or a marble on asphalt feely rolling away. This occurs on acceleration from a dead stop such as at a traffic light or accelerating from a stop sign. Almost like something is rolling away in...
