  4. Austop Noise - Gutted, Annoyed, Wished I hadnt

    T5 Conversions
    Well, I've now tried every suggestion to stop my Austop Roof creaking and slowly driving me insane. It still feels like its the rubber seal rubbing on the bodywork and I've applied loads of silicone grease but I'm also now noticing that the front corner can be lifted with little effort even when...

  11. Resonance At 55-60

    T4 Syncro Garage
    Getting great trips in the Syncro recently but have noticed a resonance appearing in rear left between 55 & 60 MPH. I tried changing tyres first just in case the noise was from the tyres. The noise remained on different tyres. So I put the original tyres back on. A few weeks later it got worse...

    Steering & Suspension
    The other day I was driving and a high pitched noise developed when revving.

The steering fluid had leaked out...

    Right! I posted a while ago concerning the combination of strange noises our '96 2.4D has started to make. It has a 2.5 TDi manifold and turbo fitted (though not by a VW specialist, which may be relevant to the subsequent problems! No one responded, so I've ploughed on alone! So - thus far, I...
