  1. Touran 1 - (type 1T) 2003 - 2015
    I notice that the dust covers on the rear shocks have deteriorated significantly on my 2008 1.9tdi Touran, so I'm planning to replace them. I've no idea how long they've been in such poor condition, so I'm planning to replace the shock absorbers while I'm at it. Although it feels and drives...
  2. Suspension & Handling
    Hi all, Could someone please let me know how I could find out what size my struts are. Apprently they vary between 50 and 55mm but I can't find anywhere where I could actually look this up and get a firm answer. I'm looking to get some coilovers for it and the ones I'd like to get only fit...
  3. Polo 4 - (type 9N1 & 9N3) 2002 - 2009
    I everyone, I post this one to see if anyone else have had the same issue. My 2003 Polo 9N produce a clunking noise when running on bumps or rough road. Seems to be coming only from the front-right suspension. I've took some picture to see if there's something bad but I can't really tell since...
  4. Suspension & Handling
    Hi everyone, this is my first post and I’m looking for some advice! I’ve got a VW T5 and the suspension has been lowered but now it makes a lot of noise, creaks, bangs, pops etc... and I’m not happy with the result. Can someone point me in the right direction of how to get this fixed, ideally in...
  5. Suspension & Handling
    So my golf 1.8 cl is in dire need of new suspension, it wallows everywhere and makes for an interesting ride around roundabouts! I am also wanting to lower it a little bit from stock 20-50mm, so my question is what would be the best combination for new parts, either coilovers or stock shocks...
  6. Polo 5 - (type 6C) 2014 - 2018
    Hi all, I've been having an issue with my car for the past 2 months now. Whenever i'm driving there is this annoying creak/squeak sound that comes from under the front end, its much louder when going over something like a speed bump but does it along all roads that aren't 100% smooth. I've...
  7. Passat 7 - (type 36) 2010 - 2015
    Hi, can anyone help? My Passat has developed a loud knock/cluck when I go up speed bumps and the same when dropping off the other side. I have had the car in the garage twice and it has been checked for obvious wear and tear, broken springs etc or anything loose, but on both occasions the noise...
  8. Suspension & Handling
    Hi All, Car: Passat Estate Sport, 2007 - 2.0 TDi (136 HP) 1 of my shock (NSR) and 1 of the springs (OSR) needs replacing and I would love to try replacing on my own (both PAIRS of course) , but trying to find the right parts is confusing, to say the least ! Too much choice and if I'm honest...
  9. Polo 5 - (type 6C) 2014 - 2018
    Hello all I recently bought a Polo Match 1.2 90PS TSI, 5 door, 2016 reg. I have a question about the suspension - small bumps and potholes send quite a thump through the car, and I have to go pretty slowly over road humps or it really jars. It feels like the shock absorbers aren't doing their...
  10. Beetle Classic (type 1) 1938 - 2004
    Hi, This is my first post here! I have recently bought a 74 beetle - 1300. I noticed when driving it around that it was a bit clunky especially going into second gear and assumed that the gearbox was worn out and would prob need rebuilding/replacing. After getting a puncture and changing the...
  11. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Hello, I've recently (about 2-3 months ago) had my Top Strut Mount fixed due to a tapping/knocking noise when going over bumps and potholes which resolved the issue. However, the mechanic said that it looked like it had a previous repair due to dodgy washers used that he had never seen before...
  12. Polo 5 - (type 6R) 2010 - 2014
    Hi all, does anyone know if you can buy solid top mounts for a 2012, 1.2 Polo? I often find when cruising at over 50mph that if I hit a bump in the road the car doesn't settle down for a good while after the bump. Recently a friend of mine was in the car and commented on the noise of the...
  13. Suspension & Handling
    Hi All, Last year I bought a Polo 6R, a 2 door SE 1.2 TSI to be exact, and I was looking at getting the suspension lowered and I've heard some good things about Air Ride kits and I was wondering if you guys know anything about them? I'm not the most knowledgable person about modifications for...
  14. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    I have a Mk5 Golf and I want to lower it so I have a small arch gap, I am not really interested in slamming it as that will cause problems. I have looked at just getting lowering springs but I am affraid that if I buy some, that they may be too low or not low enough, as well as this the ride...

  16. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Hi, I had adjustable coilovers put on my car for a while (albeit too low) and now I have awful shock absorbers/suspension (regular NOISY knocking from passenger side rear in particular)! Has anyone had this problem with theirs? Does anyone know of any options as I am going to have to sell it...
  17. Golf 6 (type 5K) 2009 - 2012
    Hi everyone... Have just popped in because I'm banging my head against a brick wall with a Mk6 2.0Tdi 5dr hatch on an 09 plate which is in astounding condition, low mileage (27,000), and which I bought from a dealership with FSH and one prior keeper. The vehicle has 'ECS' traction control and...
  18. Suspension & Handling
    Have had a front end squeak/ creak in the bora since I bought it. I could hear a squeak when I bought it initially but didn't think too much of it, I had a glance at the suspension at the time and it seemed ok. Today I had the car jacked up and checked all 4 springs - looks like the ends have...

  20. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Hello I recently noticed an odd sound coming from my rear suspension and after investigating found that the rear nearside suspension coil had a loose rubber circle thing in it, which I believe is a 'seat' for the coil itself. This would explain the metallic creeky noise I was hearing. Just...
